DID YOU KNOW THAT HOMEOWNERS HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY WITH MAINTAINING THE WATER AND SEWER SYSTEM?
Homeowners are responsible for both the water line that runs from the water meter to their residence, and for the sewer line that runs from their residence to the sewer main, called a lateral.
Maintaining your sewer lateral includes keeping the lateral line flowing and free of debris, such as roots or fats, oils, and grease. Unfortunately, sewer laterals are often not maintained by property owners until a disaster strikes, which can cause costly damage to the interior of a home and the environment.
Did you know most homeowners’s insurance does NOT cover private water and sewer line failures? Check with your insurance company on coverage and rates.
