After a letter from the city about a warranty program showed up at many Maricopa houses, residents are questioning its validity as well as the city’s intentions.
During the past few weeks, houses in Maricopa received a letter from the city informing residents of their new partnership with the company Service Line Warranties of America. The letter gives the option to enroll in the Exterior Water Service Line Coverage, which can provide repair damage for outside water or well service.
In Maricopa, Global Water Resources is responsible for the water line in the street up until the water meter on someone’s property, and homeowner’s insurance typically covers pipes within the home. However, the line from the meter to the home — a few feet long — usually is not covered.
That is where the SLWA warranty comes into play.
