Plumbing Essentials

Plumbing protection that covers what typical insurance doesn’t.

Your home’s plumbing system gets a workout day after day, and year after year. Keeping that system running smoothly requires both maintenance and occasional repairs; it also requires you to deal with unexpected failures that insurance doesn’t cover – and those can quickly become expensive. But there is something simple you can do to protect your plumbing as well as your finances: Choose an affordable, custom plumbing protection plan from Direct Energy.

Our plumbing protection plans cover what many basic homeowners insurance policies don’t: the cost of repairing interior plumbing lines, valves and drains. We also offer options that cover additional areas, such as water heaters, bathtubs and toilets. The more you learn about how much you might have to pay for repairs, the more you’ll appreciate the protection and value that our coverage provides.

  • Won't my homeowners insurance cover plumbing?
    Your homeowners insurance may not cover the repair of interior plumbing lines and drains. Our plumbing protection plans can cover some or all of these costs; they can also include inspections that can help you avoid expensive damage and repairs in the future.
