What's Covered in the Home Plumbing Warranty Coverage?

An AHS home warranty delivers expansive coverage of the major components and parts of your plumbing system. Your home service plan contract will provide a detailed explanation of precisely which plumbing issues, parts, and components are covered. This warranty covers a range of parts of your plumbing system, including the following:

  • Faucets
  • Shower heads, shower arms, and valves for shower, tub, and diverter
  • Built-in bathtub whirlpool motor, pump, and air switch assemblies
  • Plumbing sewage ejector pump
  • Angle stops, risers and gate valves, hose bibs, and basket strainers

Many plumbing issues involve stoppages and clogged drains or pipes. These stoppages in the sink, bathtub, shower and toilets may be covered by your AHS® warranty, depending on the cause of the stoppage. In addition, clearing of lateral drain line stoppages up to 100 feet from the access point are included in your warranty per terms and conditions of your contract.

Some larger plumbing issues require accessing pipes through walls, ceilings and floors. AHS service contractors will enter through unobstructed walls, ceilings, and floors and return these areas to a rough finish when the work is complete. In instances where the plumbing is behind a concrete floor, wall or ceiling, AHS pays up to $1,000 per contract term for access, diagnosis, repair or replacement.

When a water leak or clogged drain occurs, don't stress. An AHS home warranty offers broad coverage of many plumbing failures, allowing you to remedy these problems. Invest in the right coverage for your plumbing system from a home warranty today.
