Root Removal

The majority of issues your pipes will encounter will come from within: clogs caused by buildups of hair, food, soap and other objects. However, some of the most devastating damage can actually come from roots outside of your pipes. Drain Masters II in Nashua, New Hampshire, will remove these roots before they cause major damage to your pipes.

Tree Root Removal

Most people don't know that roots can get into your sewer line from trees, bushes and brush. Even neighboring trees' roots can wreak havoc on your sewer lines. These roots can and will destroy your sewer line if protective measures aren't taken when the problem is discovered.

Sewer Replacement

There are several ways to deal with this issue. Some would argue that once tree roots have affected your sewer line, the only solution is to replace the sewer line itself. This can prove to be quite expensive and every situation is unique, so costs can vary a great deal. If you can afford it, this is the most effective way to resolve your root problem.

Alternative Methods

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.
