Be Wary of Offers to Insure Your Water Line

The East Grand Forks Water and Light is asking residents to be wary of letters a Connecticut company is sending to homeowners urging them to purchase private “water service line” insurance.  The utility has received several complaints about the letters, which the company — HomeServe — has been sending to homeowners in East Grand Forks and possibly other areas.

Although the information presented in the letters is factual — homeowners are responsible for repairs to the water lines that connect their home’s plumbing to a water main — the EGF Water and Light is not affiliated with HomeServe and does not support or oppose its services.

We urge residents to be cautious, because while a homeowner could purchase the insurance, the chance a homeowner will have to make a major repair to their water service line is pretty low.  Property owners are urged to read the fine print of the proposed coverage and determine if the long-term costs warrant such coverage.
