WATER CUSTOMER SERVICE LINE  (not accepting new enrollments)

The repair or replacement (in services provided or paid for by ABC Home Services (the “Company”) in its sole and absolute discretion) of one Water Customer Service Line and/or Water Buried House Line should you have a water leak in either line caused by normal wear and tear. “Water Customer Service Line” means a single water supply line from the utility’s curb box to the inlet valve of the water meter. It does not include any connections/extensions such as water lines to agricultural meters. “Water Buried House Line” means a single water supply line between the outlet of the meter and the exterior of the foundation of the home. This plan covers a free standing, single-family, owner- occupied residence. In the event you suspect there is a water leak, contact your utility company representative to determine if there is leakage. After the repair or replacement has been completed, it is your responsibility to contact the appropriate utility to restore service to your home. If your local utility does not require a pre-service inspection, the Company’s service technician will restore service.

Not Covered: Service to a water line in the event the problem results from damage or leaks incurred or existing prior to coverage; service to a water line damaged by your action or negligence or the action or negligence of third parties, natural disasters, acts of nature and/or other insurable events; any restoration of trees, shrubs, paved surfaces, sidewalks not required by permits, or structures; removal of items necessary to access the line, including but not limited to cars, trash, storage, rocks or materials, structures, drywall, paint and wallpaper; movement of the meter at the time of repair or replacement, unless required by local code or required by the Company; updating or moving non- leaking pipes to meet local code, law or ordinance requirements or changes thereto; water meter, including connections; movement of working pipes and/ or lines due to recommendations by the utility; repairs necessary to correct lower than desired water pressure that is not a result of breakage in the lines.

Limits of Coverage: For a covered claim, we will pay a maximum of $4,000
per occurrence. If a work permit is required before the line is repaired, we will obtain the proper permit. After the line is repaired or replaced, we will provide basic site restoration to the affected area. Such restoration is limited to clean-up of debris and filling in all earth removed for excavation. All restoration may be subject to limitations from current weather and soil conditions. This Guarantee pays only for the repair or replacement to restore service in the most cost effective manner as determined by the Company. Should the existing line not comply with local code requirements, we will comply with such requirements at the time of repair or replacement. If local permitting requires, we will pay up to $500 to repair or replace sidewalks located in a public easement that was damaged due to Water Customer Service Line repair work. These expenses will apply toward the $4,000 guarantee maximum. Should sidewalk repair expenses exceed $500, it is your responsibility to pay any additional costs. You will be notified of the expected additional expenses before work is performed.
