Frequently Asked Questions

What is WaterPro Water Leak Protection Plan℠?

Louisville Water developed WaterPro Water Leak Protection Plan for residential customers. It is a convenient and affordable product that protects you against unexpected charges from a water leak.

Does my homeowners insurance cover this?

As a homeowner, you are responsible for excess charges on your water and wastewater bill caused by water leaks. Most basic homeowners insurance policies do not cover excess charges from leaks on the water and wastewater bill.

What charges does WaterPro cover?

WaterPro covers up to $3,000 of excess water and wastewater charges from one qualifying leak in a 12-month period. The product is for residential customers and includes one leak occurrence per 12-month period. Two consecutive billing cycles are allowed for the qualifying leak occurrence. WaterPro does not cover expenses for repairs. There are optional HomeServe warranty offerings that can cover those costs.

To qualify for a leak adjustment, the eligible plumbing leak must generate a minimum additional charge of at least fifty percent (50%) over the average of the past twelve (12) months’ bills, with a minimum overage of forty dollars ($40).

Where does the leak need to originate for WaterPro to cover the cost of the excess water?

If you have a high water bill that’s caused by a leak from the following, WaterPro may provide benefit:

  • Crack or break in private plumbing
    infrastructure on customer’s side
    of the meter/point of responsibility
  • Dripping/ Leaking Faucets
  • Running Toilets/ Commodes
  • Water Heaters
  • Unattended Homes
  • Faulty Customer Plumbing
  • Irrigation Systems
  • Vandalism
