Why do I need a plumbing protection plan?

Virtually all plumbing repairs are high priority – but they don’t have to be high cost.

Indoor plumbing is easy to take for granted, but all it takes is a clogged drain or leaky pipe to remind us how much we depend on it. The technology that revolutionized the way we cook, bathe and do our “business” is still dependent on simple parts that break down after years of wear and tear. When a part of your plumbing system doesn’t work the way it should, it can grind your daily routine to a halt – which means it’s hard to put off repairs, even if they’re expensive.

Plumbing repairs are inevitable, but big plumbing repair bills don’t have to be. Our plumbing protection plans address the repair of leaks and stoppages in your interior water, waste, and drain lines, so you can get these problems fixed with fewer worries about the cost. When you contact us to request service, well arrange for a licensed plumber to diagnose and fix the problem, saving you the stress of searching for a qualified professional.

Planning ahead makes repairs afforable.

Plumbers have seen it all, from simple problems like a grease clog in the kitchen sink, to alarming emergencies like toilets backing up into the shower. If something like this happens in your home, wouldn’t you rather have a plan?

Our plans will protect your budget with up to $500 in covered repairs per service call, with an annual limit of $2,000.* It’s invaluable coverage that’s there when you need it most.  Make an investment in your home plumbing system – and your peace of mind - today to save yourself time, money, and stress tomorrow.
