New! Residential ServLine Program
We are always striving to provide our customers with the most effective services possible. We recognize many of you have struggled with the high cost of water leaks and water line repairs. Many homeowners were surprised to find out they are responsible for both the extra water charges from water leaks and repair of the water line from the meter to the home. These homeowners were shocked to discover that their homeowners insurance does not cover any of the repair costs (which can exceed $5,000) or the extra water bill from the leak that can add hundreds of dollars more.
As a result, Ocoee Utility District is excited to provide a new program that protects our single unit residential customers from these very high and unexpected repair and water leak costs. The program we have developed is called ServLine. Our ServLine Program provides broad coverage with no deductible and is insured by an “A” rated insurance company which is regulated by the Tennessee Department of Insurance.
- Water Bill Protection from excess water charges due to repaired plumbing leaks.
- Up to $500. No deductible. Limit one every 12 month cycle.
- You are automatically signed up for this protection at a cost of only $1 per month.
Water Line Protection
- Water Service Line Protection covering repair or replacement of service line up to $10,000.
- No deductible. No limit on number of occurences per year. Only $3.50 per month.
- This protection requires each residential customer to sign up in order to be covered. There is no waiting period for coverage to apply.
You are automatically enrolled for Basic Protection but need to sign up for Water Line Protection. You may cancel either Basic Protection or Water Line Protection (if you sign up and change your mind). However, if you cancel Basic Protection you are taking responsibility for all water charges from water leaks. ServLine replaces our existing leak adjustment policy related to water charges from water line leaks and breaks. We hope you participate in both the Basic and Water Line Protection, but if you choose not to participate in our Water Line Protection you will continue your personal responsibility for the repair costs to your water line.
We do not support or endorse any of the warranty products that are on the market. Our ServLine Program has more coverage with fewer restrictions than any warranty product we have seen. Our team has worked hard putting together ServLine so that every residential customer who wants protection can choose to be covered for water line repairs and/or partial bill relief from water leaks. We encourage you to sign up for the Water Line Protection so you will not have to worry about the eventual repair or replacement of your water line.
