“Generally speaking, your insurance company covers damage from a covered loss unless it’s excluded under the policy, though deductibles and coverage limits do apply. If your water systems fail due to age, breakdown from wear and tear, or maintenance issues, this would not be a covered loss.
Be aware that you may be covered by manufacturer’s warranties, plus many insurance companies offer breakdown insurance for appliances built into your home such as water systems. “

"Should I join a credit union just to get a car loan? "
"I am about to buy a new car and was planning on getting a loan through my local bank. I have a long history with my bank and I am fairly confident that I could get a good interest rate on a car loan from them. I keep hearing good things about credit unions, though, and I’m wondering if it would really be worth joining one just to get a better interest rate on a car loan. "
