With every water bill I receive from Anglian Water I get a letter imforming me that should I suffer a water leak on my property the cost of repairs could run into £1000s. These letters are immediately shredded as this is covered by my home insurance.
Just seeing this artical in the Telegraph
Water Leaks made me wonder if any members of this forum have taken out these insurance policies with their water suppliers

Recently, responsibilities for pipework and leaks changed, and it became more favourable to the customer. Regarding household insurance,check your policy, some home insurance companies have tightened up their terms and conditions of water leakage and damage.
