  1. Default Aquarium leakage insurance


    0 Not allowed!
    I rent my house and I'm interested in buying renter's insurance that would cover the rental property (house) in the event of an aquarium leak. In this case I'm not so much concerned about covering my own property. The companies I've talked to so far (Geico, Progressive, Allstate, State Farm) will cover water damage from an aquarium but only in the cases of say vandalism or fire, but specifically not a slow leak which is what I'm more concerned about. Is anyone aware of an ins. co. that offers a policy covering a slow leak?

    Thanks

    If you live in Canada, I can recommend two companys to you.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    That would probably have to be renters insurance with a separate policy for flood insurance. I'm on the 5th floor of an apartment and last year ran the bathroom sink over (while emptying my fish tank) that flooded the peoples bathroom below me. Not a pleasant situation for either of us but I was certainly happy none of her furniture got ruined or it would have been on my head to replace it. Insurance companies have a great way of wiggling out of what they've told you and I would be leery of anything they said unless they put it in writing.

    One good thing is that a slow leak generally doesn't develop into a big leak for several days giving you time to correct the situation. Altho my son had a 300 gallon tank that contained an Oscar that threw up a rock blowing out the side of his tank!
