  • rootx municipal questions

    im doing a bid for the city i live in to apply rootx in a 1200' X 8"section of 100 year old clay. there are man holes every 270' i've done a couple lateral rootx treatments for them but this is pretty big. they hired a company to video and jet the line and now they want the root x. they dont have it in there budget to replace the sewer line. its in the historic downtown section, with a combination of resteraunts and retail. my questions are. im worried about liabilty, why dont they apply the root x themselves? (im not that good of salesman) they were threatened by building owner that if they didnt fix the problem they would sew them.(i dont want to be the fall guy) how would you guys apply the root x gravity?, jetter? vaccum? ive seen the video on all of them. im thinking of using my new pressure washer/ jetter with the root x fdu 100 foam dispersal unit. this is the direction i would like to take my company. i do alot of other work for the city also.

    A job like that I think I would call Pootx and ask the tech people. That is exactly what they are there for and for the most part appreciate the inter-action.

          from what i remember it's applied with a special 50# set up incorporated into the end of a jetter hose/ nozzle.

          not a job if your not set up to do it.

          there is a local root x rep that does monitor this forum.

          i just need to go back to my email to link it to him.
