Safe Drain Solutions
RootX is a simple, cost-effective and proven way to kill pipeline roots which have invaded residential sewer lines, storm pipes and septic systems. First, the sewer line must be cleaned thorough the use of a sewer auger to remove existing roots. RootX can then be applied. The patented RootX formula foams on contact with water. The foam acts as a carrying agent, lifting the herbicide to the top of the pipe where 90 percent of pipeline roots grow. Degreasing agents strip away grease and grime so the active ingredient can penetrate roots. RootX promotes bacterial growth to speed decay and natural removal of roots. The foam also leaves a thin layer of RootX on the pipe walls to prevent re-growth.
Bio-Clean uses a special combination of natural bacteria and enzymes that digest organic waste found in your plumbing system: grease, hair, soap scum, food particles, paper, cotton, etc. Bio-Clean will not digest or have any effect on inorganic materials such as plastic pipe. It does not produce heat, fumes or boiling like chemicals do. Bio-Clean is safe for people, plumbing and the environment.
