Why SWIP?

The big difference between SWIP (Sewer & Water Insurance Plans) and other programs is that SWIP is not a warranty or opt-in program. It’s a turnkey, customized solution and partnership approach that meets the needs of the homeowner and the municipality.

Here are some reasons why municipalities choose to partner with us:

NO WAITING PERIODS
Rest assured that your sewer and water lines will be repaired ASAP.

NO DEDUCTIBLES
Neither you nor your residents will be assessed a deductible.

WE COVER ALL REPAIRS
(Up to $15,000) Many programs only offer partial coverage for water and sewer lines.

WE MEET EPA STANDARDS
Repairs meet EPA standards and requirements and help you avoid costly fines.

NO EXCLUSIONS
Many programs exclude preexisting conditions. We don’t.

Sandy Utah Case Study: “Our Residents Are Extremely Happy”

The Sandy Suburban Improvement District (SSID) in Sandy, UT implemented the Sewer Water Insurance Program (SWIP) in October 2014. SSID maintains approximately:

  • 165 miles of pipe.
  • 3,200 manholes.
  • 10,000 residential connections.

In the first 6 months after implementing the program:

  • 75 homeowners claims were received.
  • 45 resulted in repairs.
  • Most repairs were made using CIPP lining, followed by spot repairs and pipe bursting technology.
  • The overall health of SSID’s lateral system was much improved.

“Our residents are extremely happy,” says SSID general manager Jerry Knight. “We went with SWIP because of its ability and willingness to customize our program and provide a total solution,” says Knight. The groundbreaking insurance program has allowed SSID to ensure the holistic health of their entire sewer system including assessment, rehabilitation, and repair of all the nearly 10,000 private lateral lines.
