Plumbing and Drainage Insurance Cover


Running taps, a flushing toilet, and clear drains are things no one thinks about – until they stop working!

Severe problems can even lead to structural damage to your house. Plumbing and drainage insurance, part our home emergency insurance is there to give you peace of mind that if anything were to go wrong with your water supply and waste, a professional is only a phone call away.
