    [QUOTE=gretsch292;24024]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.

    Yes and no...here roots don't seem to care how they get in the pipe...And when you flush 2 cups or so of rock salt, the water keeps on trucking and the salt stays behind and slowly dissolves, and the roots still get some of that stuff.....Not saying its fool proof or a guarantee or anything like that..but for the small amount money it cost its the best and cheapest preventive maintenance....

    I'd shoot Dan Lawrence a PM right here and see about buying some Root-X....

    It is by far the best stuff out there for cleaning roots and the chemistry of the Root-X puts no additional burden on waste treatment...

    The Root-X powder foams on contact with water and fills the entire pipe with foam which kills the entire root branch that is growing into the pipe without harming the tree. The stuff flat out works and I have seen the results with the camera.

    Yea Rootx works well! I know first hand, I had a pretty big list of customers I did once a year but after I jetted the pipe clean and used the rootx the following year there where not enough roots to even do anything about. After most of the customers saw the results they do it themselfs now. I should have worn a full bio suit when I did it then they would still call me. I hate loosing the work but it was the best thing for the customer. And it made me focus more on replacing bad side sewers and drainage jobs So I am not mad about it, But mark my words if you start using it you will lose some revenue. The customers don't get the rootx warranty by doing it on their own but it doesn't matter the stuff works if done right.

    LOL! Don't forget to yell "FIRE IN THE HOLE" then run like hell when you get the cap on!!!!

    I see what you're saying though. RootX almost works too good from a revenue standpoint, but quite often it's the best alternative for the customer.

    With me knowing how well Rootx works, and not telling a customer about it so I could resnake 1-2yrs later, would be deceitful.
    I no longer keep Rootx on the van. I tell the customer all about it, where to get it and how well it works, any other brand is a waste of $$, etc..

    This way it's now in their hands. I'm now finding myself returning 1-2yrs later to resnake and the HO asking "what was that stuff you said to put in the line". I also think most do not fill out and send in the reminder cards. So when they do use it, they only use it once.

    How is that bio clean anyway?
    I don't really buy into that type of product and I tell customers that when they ask, but I also let them know that I didn't buy into root killers either until I started using Rootx and a lot of places that sell rootx also sell bio clean.


    What about GreaseX, anyone use it?

    I have a hard time selling Rootx no one wants to pay for it and it costs me about $250 for a case of 12 two pound jars
    for now were not selling rootx until things turn around and I don't see it happening any time soon.

    We like to rootx sewer lines 1yr after jetting. I tell them its a great idea to keep maintiance on the line now that the roots are all gone, you dont want roots back.

    So that keeps us coming back and it give them a peice of mind
