    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

    2 options, take a baseball to it or buy an apex with leak detection. No insurance will cover a slow leak, they want all or nothing.

    Don't you think any damage from a slow leak could also be done by a quick one (see mario's baseball bat idea)
