HomeServe, a US based provider of homeowner assistance services, will offer Water Service Line Protection Plan to select homeowners in Kansas.

Previously reaching customers through partner utility companies, HomeServe said that they will be providing their protection program directly to select area homeowners.

The water service line is the pipe that brings freshwater into a home and it is typically the homeowner’s responsibility to maintain it, according to the company.

On most properties, this line starts from the curb or well casing and goes all the way into the home, connecting to the water heater, sinks, showers and more.

The company further stated that temperature changes, shifting soil or the age of the line can all be causes of damage, that will result in a loss of water pressure or a loss of water altogether, and in other instances, the effects will not be noticed until there is a spike in the water bill due to an underground leak.

HomeServe will be offering its Water Service Line Protection Plan via a direct mail campaign.
