Insurance Coverage

Insurance coverage for well pumps can vary depending on your homeowner's insurance policy. Some policies may cover well pump damage if covered perils like lightning or fire cause it. However, the extent of coverage can differ widely, and it's essential to review your policy to understand the specific terms and limitations. 

To determine if your home insurance covers well pumps, carefully read your policy, contact your insurer for detailed coverage. Keeping well-documented records of your well pump's installation and maintenance can also be beneficial when assessing insurance claims

Does insurance cover well pumps?

Whether well pumps are covered by insurance can vary by insurance policy and circumstances surrounding the damage or failure of the well pump. Sometimes, well pumps may be covered as part of your homeowner's insurance policy if a covered peril, such as a lightning strike or fire, causes the damage. 

However, coverage can vary widely, and it's essential to review your policy's terms and conditions or talk to your insurer about coverage for well pumps.

How long are well pumps guaranteed?

The warranty or guarantee for well pumps varies with manufacturer and kind pump. Typically, manufacturers offer warranties ranging from one to five years for standard residential well pumps. 

Some premium or submersible well pumps may come with longer warranties, extending up to a year or more. It's important to keep records of your well pump's installation and warranty information and consult with your pump provider or manufacturer to understand the specific terms and duration of the warranty.

How to Tell if Your Home Insurance Covers Well Pumps

Determining if your home insurance covers well pumps involves reviewing your policy and contacting your insurance provider. Here's how to go about it:

  • Review Your Policy: Carefully read your homeowner's insurance policy, paying close attention to the property and personal property coverage section. Look for any mentions of well pumps or water systems.
  • Contact Your Insurance Provider: Contact your insurance provider or agent to inquire about coverage for well pumps. Ask specific questions about what is and isn't covered and any additional endorsements or riders that may be available to enhance coverage.
  • Document Your Well Pump: Keep records of your well pump's installation, maintenance, and repairs. This material can help with a claim in the future.
  • Consider Additional Coverage: If your standard homeowner's insurance policy doesn't provide adequate coverage for well pumps, inquire about purchasing additional coverage or endorsements to protect your well pump investment.
