Service Line Protection Available for Homeowners

Yountville, California – The Town of Yountville has partnered with Service Line Warranties of America (SLWA) to offer protection for homeowners for external sewer lines. The coverage is voluntary and available at affordable monthly or annual prices. 

The Town Council understands the importance of water conservation and protecting the environment. While efforts are underway in many communities to improve public water and sewer systems, these fixes don't address the sewer line located on your property. Homeowners can spend from hundreds of dollars up to $3,900 to repair or replace a broken, clogged or leaking sewer line on their property - and that can be hard on a budget.

The SLWA Service Line Warranty Program protects against leaks, breaks and clogs due to normal wear and tear, age, ground shifting and tree root intrusion. If a customer’s line is in need of repair, a simple call to the SLWA 24-hour hotline will dispatch a local, licensed contractor familiar with local code. The program provides up to $4,000 per incident for external sewer line repairs with an additional allowance for public street cutting. There are no annual or lifetime limits, service fees or deductibles – just protection when you need it most! Residents will have the option to select from three (3) different programs: Water Line Protection, Sewer Line Protection and In-Home Plumbing Repair-and you can sign up for all three at once!

“Homeowners believe that the pipes located on their property will last forever or that the Town will repair the line if it breaks,” said Town Manager Rogers. “That’s simply not the case. Many factors contribute to the life expectancy of a line such as tree root intrusion, ground shifting, weather and age – all factors which are covered through the Service Line Warranties of America protection program.” 

This program is offered at no cost to the Town and no public funds are used to promote or administer the program. 

“We are pleased to offer affordable protection for sewer lines to the residents of Yountville,” said Tom Rusin, CEO of SLWA parent HomeServe USA. “Homeowners will have peace of mind with our first-class customer service experience featuring a 24/7 claim repair line and local, licensed contractors – keeping dollars in the local economy.”

As the 2013 Winner of the Western Pennsylvania Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics, the company is committed to customer service, ethical marketing practices and maintaining an A+ accredited rating with the Better Business Bureau.
