[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....
