Service Line Protection Available for Akron Homeowners

The City of Akron has partnered with Service Line Warranties of America
(SLWA) to offer homeowners optional residential external water service
line warranties. The coverage is voluntary and available at affordable
monthly or annual prices. Founded in 2003, SLWA has partnered with over
400 leading cities and municipalities in the U.S. to provide repair
service plans that offer peace of mind and convenience.

“Far too many homeowners are unaware that they are responsible for any
repairs needed as a result of damage to the water service lines on their
property,” said John O. Moore, Akron’s Director of the Department of
Public Service. “This means that homeowners can be stuck with the hassle
and expense of the repair – from identifying a good contractor and
scheduling time for the repair to be done to finding extra money in the
budget to cover the cost of the repair. As Akron homes age along with
the infrastructure serving them, SLWA repair plans provide homeowners
with an optional peace of mind solution so they can be better prepared
in the event of these unexpected repairs.”

The SLWA Service Line Warranty Program protects against damage to pipes
on homeowners’ property. Repairs to these pipes are not covered by basic
homeowners insurance or by the City of Akron. If a customer’s line is in
need of repair, a simple call to the SLWA 24-hour hotline will dispatch
a local, licensed contractor familiar with local code. The coverage
features include:

Up $8,500 per covered incident with no deductibles or annual caps

Hotline access 24 hours per day, 365 days a year

Normal 30-day waiting period waived for immediate coverage

All for $3.47 per month

Many factors contribute to the life expectancy of a service line
including the age, type of piping material, soil conditions and
installation quality – all factors which are covered through the SLWA
protection program. This program is voluntary for residents and provided
at no cost to the City of Akron and no public funds are used to promote
or administer the program.

“Our service plans not only cover the cost of the repair, they also
provide homeowners with reputable, local contractors who will do the
best possible job,” said Tom Rusin, CEO of SLWA parent HomeServe USA.
“We’re thrilled to partner with the City of Akron and look forward to
the opportunity to provide Akron homeowners with the assistance they
need when faced with a home repair emergency.”

SLWA has been recognized as the nation’s largest and most trusted source
of utility line plans endorsed by the National League of Cities (NLC).
The company is committed to customer service, ethical marketing
practices and maintaining an A+ accredited rating with the Better
Business Bureau. For questions about this service, or to enroll, please
