    No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

        Jim Athens is the guy you would work with. Wow that is a long run. There is an application method for RootX that I heard of that would most likely help you on a long run. At this time as the manufacturer I can not recommend an application method that is not approved by the EPA or stated on our label. If your interested the idea actually came from Plumber Rick.

            You would need 8lbs at least if not ten we advise 4 lbs per 75 ft. of 6inch line. You would need to follow that up with 30 gallons of water you can use up to 40 gallons of water. We typically advise 3-5 gallons of water per lb. Your going to need to apply all the RootX in the line at once and have buckets of water ready and pour them in quickly one after another. This will ensure that the RootX makes it down the line with a constant heavy flow of water.

              Was this method discussed in another thread? I'm looking around, but don't see anything. I haven't done one that long, but would like to know the best method in case I do.
