Common Questions About Water Line Repair and Water Line Replacement
Who is responsible for water lines? In some cases, maintenance will fall to the city or county depending on the location. You are usually responsible for water line repair and water line replacement within the property line.
Does homeowners insurance cover water lines? Insurance generally does not cover home water line repair or water line replacement. Most water line problems are instead a natural result of age or wear and tear from plant/mineral/chemical damage. Because these concerns are predictable, it is your responsibility to protect the main water line from them. Review your policy or speak with your insurance agent to make sure!
