Kill pipeline roots using your own crews and equipment
RootX® gives you the ammunition to kill pipeline roots using your own maintenance crews and equipment. Arm your crews with RootX, and they can treat a 400-foot mainline in 30 minutes or less.
Kill pipeline rootsrestore 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. Dead roots decay over time, restoring your pipes to their full capacity. And RootX is guaranteed to keep your pipes root-free.
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, wastewater treatment operations or above-ground vegetation.
