Drainage Insurance Cover

A blocked drain – especially a blocked toilet – can be a nightmare and can be costly (and unpleasant) to repair.  You might not want to talk about your drains, but you should definitely insure them. Drainage cover exists so that when your toilet just won’t flush you’re not the one who has to deal with it and you can make a single phone call to get everything working again.

Drainage Insurance Cover

Prominence Support offers extensive Plumbing and Drainage Insurance for both internal and external drains. If you find yourself with blocked drains, damaged drains, or drainage problems then you can rely on Prominence Support to get everything sorted quickly and effectively so that you can get back to normal life in no time.

Why do I need Drainage Cover?

Blocked drains are caused by a number of reasons. Fats, oils, and grease that are liquid at heat cool rapidly in drains and solidify. Wipes, even those marked as “flushable”, pile up and get stuck in the drains. Hair and other debris can build up causing blockages. Even trees and plants can cause damage to drains when they grow into them or roots grow tightly around them. These blockages and breaks can happen at any moment and to anyone. Making sure you have plumbing and drainage insurance can save you a lot of time, money, and stress when it comes to dealing with drainage problems.

Standard home insurance doesn’t always cover drains, and often doesn’t cover external drains and pipes. If you own a home you need to make sure that your drains are insured to protect both your house and belongings, as well as your bank balance if anything goes wrong.
