Insurance Plumbing Repairs

Why pay for plumbing repairs when your insurance company can?

Floods, cyclones and more floods. We were lucky in Adelaide to escape all of it.  We could also count ourselves lucky to be given the opportunity to check our insurance cover. TV Experts at the time  were saying ‘ check the fine print’. Well, yes thanks for the advice but the problem is, how do you know what to look for?  Flood cover is now on everyone’s radar. But what else?

Here are some common repair scenarios from our perspective, that is, the perspective of an Adelaide plumber that repairs and solves the following types of issues: plumbing and blocked drains. Many policies will pay for the damage to your property when a disaster of one kind or another occurs. That’s just one half of the story! You are looking for insurance policies that go the extra mile by covering search, detection, repair AND clean up.

Here are some common residential disasters. Read over these, then check your insurance policy to see whether you are covered in full or only in part.

Insurance Plumbing Repairs

Let our team fix your dripping tap, fast.

We have a team of master plumbers who can fix your leaking taps quickly. Our plumbers can carry out anything from replacement washers to installing new eco friendly water saving taps  and shower repairs if your leaking tap cannot be fixed. Leaking taps and Leaking Showers can cause damage and decay to your walls and internal areas of your building. Our Sharpe Plumbers will arrive at your property in a work vehicle, fully stocked with spare parts, washers and repair equipment to enable tap repairs to be carried out immediately and without delay. Furthermore, Sharpe can carry out leak detection to find damaged pipes and leaking pipes.

Burst or leaking pipes

Happen more often than you might think! Leaks in water pipes can damage ceilings, walls, timber floors and carpets. Sometimes the first clue is a water stain or mould on the wall or ceiling. Your plumber will test the pipes, search for the leak and detect it. Then after repairing the pipe, there will be damage to walls or other parts of your home to rectify. You are looking for insurance that covers: leak detection, pipe repair, rectification of damage to surrounding structures (walls, floors, ceilings, stud work.)

Blocked drain or choked sewer or a backed up toilet

Yuck (best to not put in a picture). Some of our poor customers have had sewer on the front lawn, in the garden or worse, on the floor in their house. In this instance, your plumber would clean/clear your drains, inspect them with a camera to look for the problem and possibly have to dig up and replace (or re-line) your sewer.  You need to make sure that you’re covered if your beautiful deck, gorgeous garden or your paved area had to be ripped up. Believe me, when I say, we have seen it all.

Leaking hot water tanks

You’re unlikely to find an insurance policy that will cover the repair or replacement of a leaking tank as well as any damage to the surrounding areas (if you do, let us know) This is another common disaster so check your policy for how much of this repair and clean up is covered.

Reading the fine print is not a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon but if you find a company that will pay for your repairs rather than it coming out of your pocket, it’s well worth the effort!
