Service Line Protection Available for Homeowners
Release Date: January 22nd
Did you know that necessary repairs to the sewer line that runs between your home and the public utility connection are the responsibility of the homeowner? These lines are subjected to the same elements that can cause our public service lines to decay – age, ground shifting, root invasion, fluctuating temperatures and more.
While efforts are underway in many communities to improve public water and sewer systems, these fixes don’t usually address the sewer line located on your property. Homeowners can spend from hundreds of dollars up to $3,900 to repair or replace a broken, clogged or leaking sewer line on their property – and that can be hard on a household budget.
Residents will be receiving a letter in the mail from the Town of Arnprior and Service Line Warranties of Canada (SLWC) offering protection options for homeowners for external sewer lines. Service Line Warranties of Canada, an independent company separate from the Town of Arnprior, is the program administrator and offers this optional service plan. SLWA is a BBB Accredited Business with an A+ rating and has helped more than 140,000 homeowners across North America save over $90 million in water and sewer service line repair costs.
The SLWC Service Line Warranty Program protects against leaks and breaks due to normal wear and tear, age, ground shifting and tree root intrusion. If a customer’s line is in need of repair, a simple call to the SLWC 24-hour hotline will dispatch a local, licensed contractor familiar with local code. The program provides up to $5,000 per incident for external sewer line repairs. There are no annual or lifetime limits, service fees or deductibles – just protection.
