Water and Sewer Line Protection Program — scam or legit?
Just got a letter from the NYC Department of Environmental Protection exhorting me to begin a protection plan with 3rd party vendor (American Water Resources). The letter began this way: “Many New York City homeowners are not aware that repairs to the water and sewer lines that run from their home’s exterior to the mains in the street are their responsibility” [no, I definitely wasn't aware of that!!]. The letter goes onto say that aging pipes, tree roots, etc., can cause a break in water or sewer lines and then says, “typical water line repairs cost New York City homeowners between $3,000 and $5,000 while an average sewer line replacement costs between $10,000 and $15,000.”
The protection program for water & sewer lines costs $12 a month. Anyone have experience or thoughts? Is this on the up & up?
