Is there any reliable alternative to Homserve for external pipes and drains only.

    An addon to your home buildings insurance could be the answer.

    Anglian Water keep trying to push their insurance on me. There has never been a problem with the pipes or drains in this property in all the time that it has been in the family (best part of 50 years) that I couldn't fix. Had a blocked drain at Christmas, but was easily fixed with a set of rods and a clothes peg.

    My view is these insurance policies are a waste of money - The annual premiums are better saved in an emergency fund account, preferably one that pays interest.
