What does this means to you? 

Higher water cost, property damage, and a serious impact on your wallet! But most people are unaware that there may be a problem with their water pipes and that most insurance policies won’t cover the repair costs. 

How Can You Protect Yourself?  Knowledge is Power!

How old are your pipes?

Knowing how old your plumbing system is can help access their repair needs. Lack of maintenance, poor installation, corrosion, water chemistry and high water pressure are the leading causes of breaks in the plumbing pipes. Nearly half of the water pipes in America are in poor shape, according to a report from the National Association of Water Companies.

Do you have large trees close to your water service line?

Mature trees can have invasive roots, which often seek out water pipes. Breaking into them and causing serious problems. 

Are you ignoring the warning signs?

Knowing the signs of a water leak and taking action can end up saving you a ton of money and frustration. Slow or clogged drains, a stammering faucet, higher than normal water bill, musty odor, warm flooring, and mold are all indications of a water leak.

Do you know what your water and sewer pipes are made of?

Unfortunately, all piping materials corrode and deteriorate over time. “Nearly 75 percent of all utilities have corrosive soil conditions and combined with a high portion of old cast iron and ductile iron pipes, corrosion is ranked the second-highest reason for water main pipe failure in the United States.” according to a study by Steven Folkman, USU professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering.
