While it is entirely possible for homeowners to acquire insurance for their pipe and sewer interior connections, very few people understand whether such an investment is truly necessary or not. This type of insurance runs just slightly over $10 monthly, while the cost of damage repair might exceed thousands of dollars. Neither the city nor most homeowner policies of insurance provide coverage for this type of potential damage, which is why it must be acquired separately if at all. Ultimately, the decision lies with the individual homeowner about whether or not to opt for this protection.
