Vacation Home Coverage in the Off Season

Do you have a vacation home that will be closed for the winter? Have you taken steps to minimize the damage that can be caused by a burst water pipe? Many home insurance contracts include a provision that denies coverage for a burst pipe if it is caused by a "failure to maintain adequate heat".

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • If the heat will be turned off, make sure the water is turned off as well, and that all pipes are drained of water.
  • Consider adding a moisture detection system to your centrally monitored burglar & fire alarm. This will alert your alarm company of any water intrusions that would otherwise go unnoticed.
  • Consider adding an automatic shut-off valve at the water main in conjunction with moisture detection monitors. Water Cop ( is endorsed by some insurance companies and even offers discounted installation to clients of the endorsing companies.
