Residential Escape of Water and Distressed Risk

£2.5m is paid daily by the insurance industry for Escape of Water (EOW) claims, the biggest cause of damage to homes across the UK. Cost to the industry is high, but to the householder it can be distressing and inconvenient. This new scheme uses leak detection technology to protect policyholders from an EOW event. The system enables early detection and switch-off of water thus alleviating high volume water damage.

We have uniquely brought together industry leaders to deliver a solution encompassing EOW risk reduction, specialist underwriting, an inspection service and a best-in-class claims service to deliver a quality service with empathy, efficiency and cost control. The
