When we think of root problems in a sewer lines, the image of an old sewer pipe that has cracks, separated joints or even crumbling decay comes to mind. These images are the results of years of a lack of preventative maintenance or poor installation. Yes, RootX is the Root Intrusion Solution that can be applied in these circumstances that can kill the roots, prevent their regrowth and restore pipe flow capacity. However, you do not need to wait until there is a problem to use RootX and reap the benefits of annual applications. Most people do not realize that RootX can be applied before these issues arise to prevent a backup or a loss of pipe flow capacity.
No one enjoys having to dig up and replace a sewer line but when you do have to go this route, use a little preventative maintenance after the replacement to guarantee that you won’t have a root-caused sewer back up again. An annual application of RootX to your new or newer sewer pipe is a proactive action that can prevent future pipe failures and extend the life expectancy of that sewer pipe. RootX applications provide a chemical barrier within the pipe that will prevent any root growth from penetrating the cracks, seems or joints that will last for 12 months in a residential sewer line. Once you have a new pipe installed don’t forget to start doing your annual RootX applications to preserve the integrity of that new pipe and extend the life expectancy for many years to come.
