Kill Pipeline Roots Using Your Own Equipment
RootX is your answer to restoring pipe flow capacity — and keeping it that way. Save time and money by using your own crew and equipment to clear pipe blockages and eliminate the need to hire special contractors. Our products are simple, effective and proven. RootX is registered with the EPA and has a low environmental impact, making it the go-to solution for municipal collection systems nationwide.
HOW IT WORKS
The RootX formula foams on contact with water allowing it to reach the top of the pipe where 90% of root growth occurs. The formula strips away grease and grime which allows the active ingredient dichlobenil to penetrate & kill the roots. Dead roots will decay and break off and new growth will be stunted, eliminating the aggressive grow back of roots that are simply cut. Regular maintenance with RootX will reduce if not eliminate Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSO's) caused by roots.
INFILTRATION & INFLOW COMPLIANCE
Is your municipality under a decree or consent requiring compliance in regards to infiltration and inflow into your sewer system? RootX can provide a consultation to help you become compliant.
The flexibility of RootX applications allows sewer crews to tailor their root control program to their manpower capabilities without compromising the effectiveness of the treatment.
RootX is not only much cheaper than frequent mechanical cuttings, but the treatment lasts significantly longer and minimizes the need to cut out roots throughout the year.
RootX is accepted by the EPA for use in all 50 states, and has been used by municipal sewer departments and plumbing contractors in the U.S., Canada and Austrailia for more than 26 years.
