RootX is a non-systemic, patented chemical root control formula. This means it only kills the roots with which it comes in contact, not the tree or plant itself. The active ingredient, Dichlobenil will not only kill roots, but will also prevent their re-growth for up to one year. RootX is the #1 environmentally safe, easy to use, root killer on the market today.
How Does It Work
RootX is packaged as two dry powder components in one container. When these components come in contact with water they create a sticky foam. This foam fills the entire pipe, coating the roots and pipeling surfaces with the RootX formula.
RootX leaves a residue above the water line that continues to kill roots and inhibits new growth for up to 12 months.
The active ingredient in RootX, Dichlobenil, is applied at concentrations of .55% or 5500 parts per million. This is 55 times the minimum level needed to kill root tissue exposed to Dichlobenil from 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Safe And Easy Application
RootX is packaged in convenient 2 and 4-pound jars. The RootX formula is poured either into the toilet or outside sewer cleanout and followed with 3 to 5 gallons of water.
RootX can be used with or without mechanical root cutting equipment. Some situations such as a root blockage will require mechanical removal of roots. Mechanical removal is an excellent short term solution. However, if the roots are cut and left untreated (just like pruning a tree or bush), they will come back bigger and stronger. This process will eventually destroy a sewer line and require the line to be dug up and replaced. The replacement of a sewer line would cost much more than an annual treatment with RootX.
RootX does not contain Copper Sulfate or Metham Sodium which are both harmful to the environment and to bacteria/fungi, which normally decompose dead roots. These two chemicals also have harmful effects on waste-water treatment plant biology.
RootX's patented combination of chemicals helps promote and speed up the natural decomposition of dead roots. This unique ability to perform both the root killing and removal function while being environmentally safe is exclusive to RootX.
RootX also contains Sulfamic Acid which is widely used to feed and preserve wastewater treatment plant biology for transport to laboratories. This demonstrates RootX's friendliness to wastewater treatment plants. RootX has been accepted by the EPA for use in sanitary and storm lines in all 50 states.
