ROANOKE, Va. -

You may have received one of these in the mail: a solicitation for pipe insurance.

The Western Virginia Water Authority only insures pipes up to the water meter.

The Better Business Bureau has warnings out on some of these insurers and the Water Authority wants people to do their research if they decide to get this insurance.

"The chances of you having the exact type of break or problem with your line that they would actually cover are exceptionally rare," says Sarah Baumgardner with the Western Virginia Water Authority.

The Water Authority says it hopes to provide this pipe insurance through them sometime soon.
