      The website says "safe for the septic system" but does that include the biology inside the tank, or just the tank and related components?

            Yes, it is safe to use in a septic tank and actually one of the surfactants is a salt base that bacteria feed off of to help promote a faster break down of root tissue. The reason for that is the herbicide used in RootX will kill the roots but it does not dissolve or eat them away like an acid so it was formulated to promote the bacteria to help break down the dead tissue faster.

            Thank you for the question

                I usually put it on my cornflakes in the morning.


                All joking aside RootX is still an herbicide and you want to follow the "Personal Protective Equipment" information and the "Safety Recommendations".

                Also as mentioned earlier as RootX is safe to use in a septic tank. The correct wording on that should be RootX is accepted to be used in septic tanks except in the state of Florida where no chemical of any kind is accepted for the use in a septic tank.

                Yeah, I had to say that so I don't get in trouble with the EPA.

                  Spoke with Dan on the phone the other day about RootX. Very knowledgable and helpful. I appreciate Dan's disclaimer about 0 chemicals going into the septics here in Florida. Kind of funny when you hear about what the average homeowner dumps in there. As a newly licensed plumber, I don't get much in the way of drain calls yet. It's something I've got to make clear to my potential customers that it's something we do. Unfortunately, the root call I got bailed. Disappointed, but: In a real bad part of town, and the caller was the homeowner. However, he wasn't in town, he called on behalf of his renters. I'm not turning down any jobs/money right now, but those landlord-renter calls can be messy. Maybe for the best. Nice talking to a forum member; especially one who knows what he's talking about. Thanks, Dan!
