Plumbing Insurance

If you have ever experienced a problem with your plumbing you will know that there are few things as frustrating as having to get by without running water and pipes that work as they should. Dripping taps, water supply issues, and blocked drains can be infuriating and stressful, but they can also be expensive and difficult to repair. If you don’t have the right insurance you may find yourself in a situation where you face financial trouble or even structural damage to your home. Our plumbing insurance part of our home emergency cover is there to offer you security and certainty that everything will be taken care of should the unthinkable happen. When you buy plumbing cover from Prominence Support you are only ever a phone call away from a qualified professional who can assist you with your water supply and waste needs.


Household contents insurance is a requirement for homes, but did you know that most home insurance policies do not cover plumbing insurance? That means when you are faced with a blocked drain or broken pipe your insurance won’t be able to cover you. Plumbing problems can be difficult to resolve and require a unique skill set from qualified professionals and as most plumbing issues are urgent you can often end up with a huge bill and a lot of extra stress.
