If you are a homeowner, you’ve probably received a letter from your water company soliciting insurance to cover waterline repair costs. You might have even opened it, wondered if you need it, then tossed it in the trash until they sent another one in a few months. That’s OK, it’s not an easy call for most homeowners to make. Inquiries regarding sewer and waterlines are some of the most common questions we receive when these mailers are sent out. We’ll answer questions and provide some guidance below.
