There are alternative methods that Drain Masters II uses to handle tree roots in your sewer lines as well. In most cases, these alternatives are more affordable and easier to manage. They do, however, require some form of yearly preventive maintenance. Instead of excavating your sewer line at great expense, yearly maintenance will save you a great deal of money as well as unnecessary stress. Remember to keep the maintenance program going. Skipping regular maintenance will have you right back to where you started—with a big problem.
RootX™ is the original, simple, and fast non-metal, sodium foaming root control in an easy-to-apply powdered formulation. It foams on contact with water to kill roots, inhibit regrowth, and restore pipe flow capacity. The patented RootX™ Formulation foams on contact with water, filling the entire pipe to reach the top, where 90% of pipeline root intrusion occurs.
The active ingredient in RootX™ is the aquatic herbicide Dichlobenil. RootX™ contains surfactants, degreasing agents that strip away the grime on roots, allowing Dichlobenil to penetrate the root ends. RootX™ promotes bacterial growth that assists in the decomposition of dead roots. For over a decade, thousands of municipalities and professional drain cleaners have relied on RootX™ as their maintenance solution.
