    I'm fixing to start RootX, maybe this week. I think it has its place.

    Like a lot of septic guys, though, I'm pretty dubious about any enzymes or bacteria for septics. When customers ask me if they should add bacteria, I point to the inside of the tank and ask them if they think their little bottle of bugs contains even close to the amount of bacteria already there. They usually have to agree that the tank is pretty colonized already.


    For septics, it boils down to simple science:
    1. There is a certain amount of organic matter for bacteria to feed on coming into the tank.
    2. There is a certain amount of oxygen in the tank.
    3. Bacteria colonize as fast as possible.
    The environment in the tank WILL BE completely saturated to the maximum level possible with bacteria unless the HO has some bad habits that are damaging the biological systems in the tank. If they have those bad habits, they will kill the bacteria they add too. Also, if the tank is healthy and you add enzymes, either they will die or an equal amount of original bacteria will die, because the tank will only support a certain level of biological life.

    I feel the same.
    I do tell people if it's a brand new system and winter is close they may want to add something for that first winter just to give the tank a jump start so it will produce enough heat to prevent freezing. Even then it's likely to be a waste of a few bucks, but when you consider the risk VRs reward, it may be worth it.

    I should start selling GeneX treatments. Say every six months or so I show up at 9am ish with a new issue of Cleaner mag, or Popular Science and complete my daily constitution.

    I could charge $30 a poop.....um....I mean, $30 a pop.

    IMHO, citra jet no good, the others okay what ever makes money but when jetting I like pressure versus flow. The citra jet runs out like a woman of the evening on fire in church! Citra Jet is trying to push a point that is not valid. Rootx, I have seen it work! Jet, cut the roots, apply Rootx camera and return 9 months later and drop the camera in and WOW the growth of the roots have been reduced. Not gone but reduced. I don't won't use citra jet, one good flush or laterals and branches used after one day the citra jet is GONE!

    Have you ever priced septic additives, for instance RidX? If you apply it as often as they suggest in two or three years you have more than paid for a pumpout.

    I used to sale both when I was not out on my own. I sold the heck out of bio-clean and root-x. I think they are both good products. Anytime there was roots I would push Root-x and 9 out 10 times the home owner would want it. Good way to boost your profit.

    Default citra jet

    i disagree with truthzone about citra jet,i have been using it for a few years when jetting grease lines and it makes a big difference in the process, its meant to emulsify the grease and help it flow from the pipe while your jetting not for long term effects it makes the work easier and cleaner

    BTW, speaking of boosting profits, what did you charge for an application of RootX?

    It's been awhile, but I think we got $75-$95 for Root-X and $45 for Bio-Clean or $135 for 3 cans of Bio-Clean.
