Roots from trees and shrubs can invade and plug sewer lines.
Wastewater is full of plant nutrients,
including nitrogen and phosphorus,
which attract roots to leaking septic tanks and to soil absorption fields.
Roots can seriously damage septic tanks and distribution pipes by plugging
pipes and cracking tanks. At times, a clog is so stubborn and solid,
jetting alone can't clear it.
To assure maximum flow through – and minimal damage to – the pipe,
Podgurski uses a proven two-step system for root and difficult clog
< This pipe was never
Add RootX. Foaming action kills roots and inhibits regrowth.
12 weeks later debris is decaying and roots are stunted
Nine months later RootX fully restores flow.
Two-Step system of cleaning pipes:
1) We first use a chain cutting device to clean the pipe.
2) Then, we apply RootX treatment to enhance root removal.
Many of our customers have requested that we use a septic-safe product
to handle their root infiltration problems. We chose RootX which is a
patented foaming herbicidal formula that is registered in all 50 states.
EPA registration # 68464.1.
• RootX saves time and money when it is used to treat root intrusion in
drain pipes, septic systems, sewer systems and storm drains.
• The environmentally safe formulation does not contain Copper Sulfate or
Metham Sodium, which are both harmful to the environment.
• It enhances bacterial growth, so it's safe for septic systems, too.
RootX is the original, non-metal sodium foaming root control in an
easy-to-apply powdered formulation. The RootX formulation foams on contact
with water to kill roots and inhibit growth, filling the entire pipe to
reach the top where 90% of pipeline root intrusion occurs.
