Prevent Pipe Line Intrusion with RootX® from Plumb Perfect
Have roots infiltrated your sewer lines, storm pipes or septic system? Plumb Perfect has the solution with RootX®. Roots can spread quickly through your pipe, collecting material from your drain and causing a complete blockage. If not treated, roots can spread until they completely destroy your sewer or septic system—leaving you with up to thousands of dollars in plumbing repairs.
Foaming RootX® Kills Roots While Being Gentle on Your Pipes
RootX® is a foaming, non-caustic, non-fumigating herbicide solution that reaches the tops of pipes to penetrate the roots, killing them instantly. Over time, as the dead roots decay, your pipe flow will be completely restored. By sticking to the pipe walls, RootX® can prevent root regrowth for up to two years. Annual applications however, are recommended for best results.
A Necessary Addition to Mechanical Root Cutting
Although mechanical root cutting will temporarily stop pipeline blockages, roots that haven’t been killed can regrow and completely clog your pipe again within as little as nine months. With RootX® treatment, you can ensure that all roots will be killed and any chance of new roots growing is significantly reduced.
How to Use RootX
If this is the first time you’re treating a pipe or if it is completely or partially blocked, it makes sense to use mechanical cutting to remove the root mass and restore pipe flow right away.
It’s important to apply RootX within the first hour after cutting OR wait six to eight weeks. That’s because roots release a traumatic acid to cover the cut ends and protect them against further injury. If you apply RootX immediately after cutting, the herbicide can penetrate the root ends before the traumatic acid coating is complete. After six to eight weeks, the traumatic acid will have dissipated, leaving the most vulnerable part of the root exposed to the herbicide. The more root tissue you can treat with RootX, the better.
It’s simple… open product, attach funnel, shake well and pour! You can either flush RootX down the toilet or apply it to the cleanout. Complete instructions are on the RootX label. Please note however, that only one 2lb RootX can be flushed down the toilet at a time. Anything more and the RootX will foam up and over the toilet.
