    Why would you use that?
    It does you out of a job.
    Here, the city uses it to foam if the root problem is on their side.
    And it denies me jobs that I would have if they didn't use it.
    They only do it every 2 years, so I do get SOME work.
    AND you need a "Applicators License" to deal with it.

    I think it does.
    When the DPW wants me to rod b4 they apply, they have to apply within 10 minutes of my cutting the roots.
    Enzymes prevent the uptake if it's left any longer. OR.............
    They have to wait a minimum of 3 weeks after I cut, when the enzymes are done their job.

    Weird shit.
    I still maintain that chemicals have no place anywhere in our water system, be it pressure or drainage side.

    I tend to agree, its just going to make it that much more harder and pricey to treat the sewage....I found that simple rock salt will help slow down the process of root growth....cheap and effective, it doesn't stop the roots but sure does buy them time between cleanings.....

    Flush it in the toilet right before bed and let that brine water set and get soak up by the roots....it will dissuade the roots from growing in...the will eventually grow but be very weak and brittle...so it takes longer for them to be a problem.....

    I have found that method only works on sewers that are at least partially stopped up.

    Roots grow from the top down 90% of the time, so unless the roots have grown to the bottom of the pipe and are actually soaking in the water, the salt solution will never get to the roots.

    We used R/D root destroyer for years until we found RootX. Now that is all we sell. I sell it only for really bad lines that have heavy root infestation at multiple points. I also recommend a maintenance rod out within 2 years.






    Nayman: I was told that you had to apply RootX within 45 minutes of cutting the roots (before the protective coating "scab" grows over the ends) or wait 6 weeks, after the "scab" has grown out.
