Often, pipe replacements start because of a single call to a plumber for a leak. The plumber repairs a small section of pipe, and the job is done—until another section starts leaking a few days later. Another call, another repair—and another, and another.
As repairs add up, someone decides to file a claim with the insurance company to get reimbursement for damages and repair costs. The claim is paid, and the process continues: leak, repair, claim, leak, repair, claim.
Eventually, the number of claims grow so large that the insurer mandates an inspection to find out why there are so many leaks. The inspection indicates that the entire piping system requires replacement, and the insurer threatens to cancel the policy unless the property undertakes a full-scale pipe replacement to break the cycle.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. SageWater has worked with hundreds of properties to break this cycle, saving owners and insurers countless headaches and thousands of dollars by being proactive.
If you are an insurer paying out leak claims, call SageWater for a free consultation to learn how we can intervene before the situation gets out of hand. If you are an owner, filing leak claims and worried about a mandated inspection or worse—loss of coverage—SageWater can provide a recommended course of action to replace pipes and even reduce premiums with a newly installed piping system.
