What is RootX?
RootX® is Drain Forces highest recommended product to kill roots in residential sewer lines, stormwater pipes and septic systems. Root intrusion may be the single most destructive element facing your drainage and stormwater system. Left untreated, roots will spread throughout the pipe. Material passing down the drain gets trapped in the roots, restricting the flow or even causing a complete blockage.
Root intrusion can eventually destroy a sewer or stormwater system, costing thousands of dollars to repair or replace. We recommend annual RootX treatments to keep your system root free and avoid costly sewer and stormwater line repairs. Ask us about our annual reminder program.
Kill pipeline roots—restore pipe flow capacity
The patented RootX formula foams on contact with water to reach the top of the pipe where 90% of the roots are. Degreasing agents strip away grime so the RootX herbicide can penetrate the roots, killing them on contact. RootX sticks to the pipe walls, preventing re-growth for up to three years. Dead roots decay over time, restoring pipes to their full capacity.
Tough on roots; easy on pipes
RootX kills roots using the aquatic herbicide Dichlobenil. It’s non-caustic, non-fumigating and non-systemic, and it contains no diquat dibromide, copper sulfate or metam sodium. RootX will not harm pipes, septic systems or above-ground vegetation.
