Optional Water and Sanitary Sewer Line Protection Programs for Homeowners
Did you know that as a Peel homeowner you are responsible for repairs to the water and sewer pipes that run from your home to your property line? The Region of Peel is responsible for the maintenance and repair of municipal water and sanitary sewer (wastewater) pipes only.
If a pipe on your property fails, it is your responsibility to pay for these repairs which can cost thousands of dollars, depending on the type of work. This can put you in a financial bind, especially when it's unexpected.
This is why the Region of Peel is pleased to endorse a voluntary and optional repair program which provides coverage for repairs to your outside private water and sanitary sewer pipes, and in-home plumbing.
The Optional Water, Sanitary Sewer Line and In-home Plumbing Protection Plan Programs for Homeowners are managed and administered by Service Line Warranties of Canada (SLWC) and provide coverage 24-hours a day, 365 days a year.
The collaboration between SLWC and the Region of Peel is a way to help increase your awareness of your property responsibilities.
Watch your mail for details, program costs, and how to sign up for this optional and voluntary program.
This is the second in a series of mail outs focussing on the sanitary sewer protection plan.
You can also check with your insurance company to see if they offer warranty protection for your private side pipes.
