    Default Do you sell Drain Care Products?

    I was just wondering how many of you offer Drain Care Products for sale and carry them on your trucks?

    I have found that Root-X, Bio-Clean, & Calci-Solve sell pretty well and add a bit to the profit as well.

    I have been meaning to start selling Root-X but right now it's just a question of priorities. I've been spending money on other things (van, bins for the van, jetter stuff, building a shed in the back yard to get out of our storage unit, etc) and haven't felt comfortable buying a case of Root-X just yet. It's definitely on the list of to-dos though. Hopefully sooner than later.

    I bought my first case of rootx with a credit card and vowed to use every penny I made on the rootx to pay off the credit card ,it worked on the 2 open cards I have now. I only use the credit cards for toys, vacations etc. Debit card for gas ,supplys, etc, yes rootx and bio clean are money makers they sell themselves, hand the ho a flyer and video to watch and it keeps them out of your hair while you work. Statewide supply will sell you a split case 6 rootx 6 bio-clean and 2 videos and plenty of flyers to set you up .You cant loose bio for septic systems and greasy sinks rootx for sewers with roots . Alot of plumbers wont sell rootx ,because it works ! My septic guy wont sell anything, he says if it dont enter your mouth first ,dont put it in your septic tank ,but most hos have all kinda shit under their sink so I dont feel bad selling them some of mine.thanx red for tip on calci -solve I googled it and it looks cool will it work on urinals??

    We have never offered them, but have considered it a few times. Some drain cleaners swear by it and others say it's hocus pocus.

    Would like to hear more about drain care products from anyone who has had experience with any of the products - good or bad.

    Out of the 3 I mentioned I can say that Root-X and Calci-Solve have nothing hokus pokus about them, they both work quite well.

    Bio-Clean to me at least seems to have some effect on grease traps as far as the lines at least to me it's a they say it works...

    I figure the next time I call if they say they put that in instead of clobber, liquid plumber or, draino I've done some good...

    We sold a bio enzyme product at BF and I was never convinced that it worked as claimed. I can say for sure that Calci-Solve works very well though. I haven't found anything that will break urine salts down better but make sure you've got some fresh air around because it WILL knock you on your ass.

    Bio B_ _ in my exerience did not work at all. I did a small test on it and nothing. We used it here and never say a change in the grime in the C/O outside. Left BF and got hooked up with Bio Clean and tried it here and it works.

    I've been selling RootX and Bio-Clean. Both do a great job in my opinion and my customers say the same.
