Water Supply Pipe Insurance


If you own your own home then you most likely have home insurance and you may even have plumbing insurance, but what about the supply of water into your house? Clean running water is a necessity to everyday life, so supply pipe damages, leaks, or blockages can be stressful and frustrating, and without the right insurance, they can be downright expensive.

Water Supply Pipe Insurance

Most homeowners are not aware that they are responsible for the supply pipe that lies on their property, often assuming that the local authorities will take care of any supply pipe until it is connected to the house. In fact, supply pipes are only covered by the local authorities up to your property boundary, anything beyond that is your responsibility and you will need to maintain and repair that part of the pipe yourself. 


Although some home insurance policies will cover your water supply pipe, not all do. Even some plumbing insurance policies will not cover water pipes outside your house – even if they are on your property.  At Prominence Support, we have created our Plumbing, Drainage, and Supply Pipe Insurance to make sure that you and your home are properly covered.


Why do I need Water Supply Pipe Insurance?


Your water supply pipe, or “communication pipe” is the main water supply into your house. Without a working water supply pipe you will not be able to run your taps, flush your toilet, or use appliances that are plumbed in such as washing machines and dishwashers. Even if your internal plumbing is covered by your insurance, if your external pipework is not covered then you may be left without water and with a hefty bill to fix the problem.

As your water supply pipes are outside, they are also susceptible to more damage than your internal pipes, including environmental factors and wear and tear. The damage won’t be visible until the leak or burst in the pipe becomes apparent above-ground.

What is covered by Water Supply Pipe Insurance?

When you insure with Prominence Support we offer extensive plumbing insurance that includes your water supply pipe. You can choose between our Home Emergency Cover or a more comprehensive Complete Home Cover policy, but both policies cover the essentials, including cover for:


  • Issues with the water supply pipe 
  • Blocked or leaking drains
  • Burst Pipes
  • Leaking radiators
  • Faulty hot water cylinders
  • Problems with in-house waste pipes, including water leaking from sink and bathtub drain pipes.

We work exclusively with a trusted network of qualified engineers to ensure you are getting the best service. All it takes is one call to our friendly customer service team and we will have someone over to make sure everything is up and running again in no time.


Your Prominence Support Plumbing Insurance also includes all parts, repairs, and labour. When you insure with us you are completely covered and there are no hidden costs or catches, just complete peace of mind.


Both of our Plumbing Insurance policies cover emergencies and all you have to do is call one number to get everything sorted. No matter the time of day or night, if you are facing a plumbing emergency we will be there. This includes any plumbing situation that:
