RootX® Root Killer
Protect your sewer system
RootX is a non-systemic, patented chemical root control formula. It kills only the roots it comes in contact with and does not harm pipes, septic systems or the rest of the plant or tree outside of pipes. Annual RootX treatments keep your plumbing system root free and will help avoid costly sewer line and septic tank repairs.
RootX is applied by a plumbing professional through an outside sewer cleanout or toilet. The two dry ingredients foam on contact with water to reach the top of the pipe where 90% of roots are found. The foam penetrates the roots and begins to kill them within the first hour after application. The RootX foam leaves behind a thin herbicide coating on pipe surfaces to prevent root regrowth for up to one year.
Safe for the environment
The active ingredient in RootX is Dichlobenil, a proven aquatic herbicide. RootX is non-caustic, non-fumigating and contains no diquat dibromide, copper sulfate or metam sodium, which are harmful to the environment. RootX has been accepted by the EPA for use in all 50 states and passed the EPA fish and wildlife test. It’s a safe and effective solution to pipeline root intrusion.
