  • Rootx or chemicals in drains do they work?

    I have been coming across a few drains lately that I reckon with a regular treatment would stay root free.
    I have looked at a couple of options where you put a foamer in the drain and fill ($10,000 set up ) or put some chemicals such as rootx down the drain(cheaper).
    This is after I have jetted or used my trusty k1500 any guys with experience out there with this issue.
    Regards

    yes I have use this product at my own house, where I have had a root problem. After one snaking of the drain I put Rootx in drain and waited 6 hr or so. just forgot abourt it. 6 months latter bought camera and locater to gain some locating and tool knowledge, I ran camera down my drain. NO ROOTS Freddy

      Then you were lucky because I haven`t found anything that works!
      I`m thinking maybe Round-up

        the rootx does work if you follow the directions and apply enough as required.

        i.e. 4 to 6 hours of non use after applying. 2# per 50' of 4'' pipe. i always apply more.

        the foamer that you referred to is a good product, but they wouldn't sell it to me without a pest control license

        i guess it's time to call the orkin man

        don't know the requirements around the country or overseas
