Claim Description

The Insured was engaged to change over a hot water storage tank to 2 external heaters and reconnect to the existing pipework.

The dripping water built up to the point where it leaked onto the ceiling of the entertainment room below causing damage. The Insured undertook repair of the pipework.


The Insurer paid $4,972 for the cost of repairing the ceiling by the Insured’s customer, replacement of gyprock and colour matching.
