TETON VALLEY, IDA \u2014 The\u00a0City of Victor\u00a0has partnered with Service Line Warranties of America (SLWA) to offer protection for homeowners for the\u00a0WSL\/SSL protection program. The coverage is voluntary and available at affordable monthly or annual prices. Founded in 2003, SLWA has partnered with over 400 leading cities and municipalities in the US to provide repair service plans that offer peace of mind and convenience.\r\n\r\n\u201cMany homeowners do not know that damage to the service lines on their property is their responsibility to repair,\u201d said\u00a0Mayor Jeff Potter. \u201cIn the event of a service line emergency, the homeowner is responsible for scheduling the repair and covering the associated cost. As homes age along with the infrastructure serving them, SLWA repair plans provide homeowners with an optional peace of mind solution so they can be better prepared in the event of these unexpected repairs.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe SLWA Service Line Warranty Program protects against damage to pipes on homeowners\u2019 property. Repairs to these pipes are not covered by basic homeowners insurance or by\u00a0the City of Victor. If a customer\u2019s line is in need of repair, a simple call to the SLWA 24-hour hotline will dispatch a local, licensed contractor familiar with local code. There are no service fees or deductibles.\r\n\r\nMany factors contribute to the life expectancy of a service line including the age, type of piping material, soil conditions and installation quality\u2014all factors covered through the SLWA protection program. This program is voluntary for residents and provided at no cost to\u00a0the City of Victor\u00a0and no public funds are used to promote or administer the program.\r\n\r\n\u201cOur service plans not only cover the cost of the repair; they also provide homeowners with reputable, local contractors who will do the best possible job,\u201d said John Kitzie, CEO of SLWA parent HomeServe USA. \u201cWe\u2019re thrilled to be partnering with\u00a0the City of Victor\u00a0and look forward to the opportunity to provide\u00a0City of Victor\u00a0homeowners with the assistance they need when faced with a home repair emergency.\u201d\r\n\r\nSLWA has been recognized as the nation's largest and most trusted source of utility line plans endorsed by the National League of Cities (NLC). The company is committed to customer service, ethical marketing practices and maintaining an A+ accredited rating with the Better Business Bureau.
