Homeserve - Plumbing and Drainage Plus from 50p pm

27
Found 20th Nov
For only 50p a month, with zero excess you cant go wrong to cover yourself in the event of an emergency. Calling somebody out for a blockage can easily cost around £90 on its own. Also plumbing issues could easily cost more then that.

What's covered?
  • Water supply pipe leaks or bursts
  • Plumbing and drainage inside your home
  • Dripping taps and toilet/tank overflows
  • External drainage on your property
  • Up to 4 claims per year

£6 first year went to £136 next year, still ok but this year wanted £270 - watch out for your renewal letters

Looks a bargain but heard very mixed reviews on here 🤔🤔🤔

Cheap to start first year but will inevitably increase massively in subsequent years so remember to cancel

Cannot be used on flats and you must be the homeowner

Same happened with me but i just rang them and ask to cancel it but they gave me good deal about £ 55 per year. Still v good value.

called em out for a blocked drain last year but they wouldn't touch it as it was shared with neighbours....... 🤔

I've got the same cheap cover and I've used them multiple times and got my monies worth. Just cancel come renewal time / negotiate to get another cheapish contract.

I just cancelled after 1st year (Will buy again in husbands name tho) and they offered 2nd year for £4 a month

I am on this deal. Money well spent. Have called them a few times and they never disappointed.

Also useful to satisfy direct debit requirements for bank accounts offering higher interest rates and cashback.

Usually shared drainage problems are covered free by the water authority you pay,well at least ours is as 6 properties are served by one main drain to the sewer.

Same here. I had a blocked drain, water board did it for free as it was shared

These guys will also fit new taps as part of this cover

We currently have this for £12 for the first year. Called Home Serve last Friday re seized internal stopcock and leaking tap and plumber arrived following morning and fixed everything - really excellent service.

Had no idea where the outside stopcock was and called Portsmouth Water who sent out an engineer within 3 hours and he located it in our garden - no charge. It wasn't an emergency and we didn't have a leak but it's important to know where that stopcock is sited just in case !! How many of us have no idea where our outside stop cocks are ??.

I had exactly the same experience after the first year but got that down to £60 but in year 3 was also £270 and that came down to £59 but with a £95 excess ... they really get you if you don't check renewals

I took this on the special offer when it was £1 a month. I moved into a 1930's house with dubious plumbing, so thought it was worth a punt to cover me in the near term. A few months later I discovered a leak in the supply from the road to the house, which would have cost £1280 to have replaced. Homeserve fixed it within three days, and all cost were covered, and no quibbles. Great service from start to finish. I believe you can have to wait 5 years before you can take out another special offer for the same product.

I cancelled and got offered a similar deal a few months later so signed up again.

Is there a similar deal for electrics?

Top deal!

That's correct

I too had this, in the first year got several leaking dripping taps replaced, so seemed a bargain, 2nd year huge increase, negioated to something like 3 quid a month for the following year, but they wouldn't budge on the 2nd year so have cancelled. so all in all great for 1st 12 months, they come out no quibbles and replaced my taps for 6 quid!

Thanks. Just signed up. My stopcock is seized so will claim in a few months and get it sorted.

A couple of people have mentioned seized stopcocks. A tip to help prevent this is to open the stopcock fully then close it just half a turn to prevent it binding on its end stop.

Does anyone know if you can take up this deal if you have had it in the past ?

Unfortunately not. I think you maybe OK if it is taken out in the name of someone else in the household (who hasn't had it before), but I'm not 100% sure.
