Dominion's Water Line Insurance
« on: March 28, 2018, 02:11:38 PM »

Dominion is the major power company here in Virginia.

Maybe some of you in other states have a similar "insurance program?"


We received a letter from Dominion today suggesting that we take out insurance on our water line.

I have no idea why or how a power company has any interest in our water but it is a legit letter from them.

I was wondering if anyone else has received this letter and recommendations on whether the insurance is worth taking?

Thanks!

Below is a summary of the letter ...

Water Line Replacement Program
Quote
Did you know the water line that runs from the street to your home is your responsibility? Water line failures can cost a homeowner thousands of dollars in unexpected repairs.

Fortunately, there is a program to help you avoid these costly repair bills; it's Dominion Products and Services, Inc.’s Water Line Replacement Program.
For as low as $4.99/month the Program provides:

Convenience- Simply call our water line replacement service number any time—day or night—and we’ll respond within 24 hours.

Savings- We will pay for all water line parts and labor to replace your water line, and we won’t even charge a service call fee.

No long term contract - Stay protected as long as you like.  If you are not 100% satisfied with the Water Line Replacement Program, you can cancel at any time.

5$ a month sounds high, for something you should not have problems with in your life time.  On an older home I could see that but new homes have a lot of codes they have to follow in this day and age.

Thank You Walks.

After checking around, I believe that you are right!

Thanks Again
