Sure, as long as the damage was from a covered cause. The key to homeowners insurance is that the damage is due to a covered cause. If you a re searching to see if your insurance will pay for replacing the pipe because of lack of maintenance, no it will not. Maintenance is not covered on a homeowners policy.

AnswerIt may vary state to state but generally NO insurance will not cover the leaking pipe but it will cover the cost to get to it and repair the damage done to get to it as well as cover the damage done from the leak. You are on your own with the cost of the plumber. Best bet is to read your policy on exclusions. If it is not excluded, it's covered.

Will your homeowners insurance cover your septic pipe?

A homeowners policy will cover damage done by a covered cause. It does not cover maintenance as the homeowner is responsible for maintaining the home. Septic pipe damage is almost always the result of lack of maintenance. I cannot think of any way that septic pipe would be damaged by a covered cause. Perhaps if a storm blew down trees and the falling over of the trees caused the uprooting of parts of the septic pipe. This would be a covered cause.
