What is water backup & sump pump failure coverage?
Examples: How Water Backup & Sump Pump Failure Coverage Protects You
Did you know?
Sewer System Failure
Backed-up sewer lines can overflow into your home, causing damage to your basement that could require expensive repairs. Adding water backup coverage to your home insurance policy can help you recover from these types of unexpected costs.
Sump Pump Overflow
Sump systems are designed to drain water, but certain problems can cause them to overflow instead. They can fail when the sump pump breaks down or loses power. This policy may help to cover repairs or replacement for water damage.
Blocked Drain Tile
Drain tile absorbs and channels water away from your home's foundation. Obstacles like tree roots can clog the tile, causing water to enter your basement instead. This coverage can help pay for damage that occurs because of this event.*
