Business Policies Available for Water Treatment Engineers:
Insurance for water treatment engineers can include several policies that protect against common risks and liabilities. When building your water treatment insurance policy, we may suggest considering these two policies as part of your foundational plan:
As the go-to resource for your customers regarding water treatment and safety, you probably spend a great deal of time meeting with them to discuss their individual needs. If you have an office space where you meet with your customers, you'll likely need commercial general liability insurance.
Also known as general liability (GL) insurance, this type of insurance covers the costs of third-party accidents, property damage, and bodily injury to a third party, such as a customer or vendor.
GL insurance is a foundational insurance policy for several reasons, the main reason being that it can protect you and your business from significant claims and costs. Plus, with the average customer injury or damage claim being $30,000, it's important to have this type of coverage.
Without general liability insurance, you may have to pay for these costs with your hard-earned money.
So what does the role of general liability insurance look like in action?
Let's say that while working at a customer's residence, you forget to turn the water supply off and you open up a pipe, which causes extensive damage to your customer's home. They are furious, and you’re at a loss as to what to do.
If you have general liability insurance, your policy can typically cover the costs of the damage, plus legal fees if your customer takes you to court.
To summarize, here's what general liability insurance usually can cover:
Here's what general liability insurance usually doesn't cover:
You may be required to carry some form of workers compensation insurance if you have any part-time, full-time, or temporary employees on your team. This type of insurance can cover costs related to an employee's injury or illness they sustain while working for you.
Many states require businesses with employees to carry some form of workers compensation coverage; check to see what your state's requirements are for this type of insurance.
Adding workers compensation to your comprehensive insurance coverage can be crucial to running a thriving water treatment business. With the average work injury cost being $41,000 — with 2018 yielding $170.8 billion worth of claims alone — it's critical to consider having this policy.
In other words, it's essential to have workers compensation insurance as part of your overall water treatment insurance coverage, even if you have only a handful of employees.
To summarize, workers compensation insurance for water treatment engineers can cover:
Perhaps you aren't sure if you need water treatment insurance right now. Maybe you're self-employed, and the thought of adding another expense to your list is daunting.
We understand that you may be reluctant, but business insurance can be an essential component in limiting the liabilities you may face as a water treatment engineer. We can reduce the risks and liabilities we face, but that doesn't mean they can't happen.
Take a look at some of the most common incidents that small business owners can encounter, including how much they cost on average:
Those costs can be detrimental to small businesses. If you have water treatment insurance, your policy could potentially cover some or all the costs of any claims or lawsuits you may face.
Also, did you know that up to 43% of small business owners polled reported being threatened with or involved in a civil lawsuit? In other words, a customer could sue you for claims of negligence or damages even if you did everything right.

Since water treatment insurance can be a bundle of policies, you may be required to carry some coverage, but not others.
For instance, perhaps your state requires you to carry workers compensation if you have employees, but not general liability insurance.
In general, water treatment insurance premiums are income tax-deductible by the IRS. We recommend speaking to an accountant if you have questions about your specific business's deductible expenses, though.
