Roebic Foamin Root Killer for Septic Line Roots

  Roebic Foaming Root Killer



Herbicides Pesticides K 77 Root Killer Foam Root Killer

If you have a septic tank and the root infiltration is either in the main waste line (the line that brings sewage to your septic tank) or in the tank itself, then you should use Foaming Root Killer to kill those invading roots.  Once your invading roots have been killed and your sewer lines are again running clear, use either Roebic Foaming Root Killer or K-77 Root Killer granules on an annual basis.  An annual application of proper root killers will help prevent future clogs in your sewer pipes, septic lines and septic tanks.

This unique root killer, which does not contain copper sulfate, foams on contact with water for superb results.  This product also contains ingredients that help speed up the decay process of the roots that it kills.  This enables you to experience fast relief from your root problems.
(It should take Foaming Root Killer, from 2 days to 1 week to clear your line)
Your system must have some flow in order for the Foaming Root Killer to work properly.  If the Foaming Root Killer cannot get to the roots, it cannot kill them.  Foaming Root Killer is the product of choice in southern, semi-tropical areas including, Florida, the Gulf states, desert Southwest, and Southern California.

Other Areas

ALONG SIDEWALKS AND DRIVEWAYS: To prevent root growth from pushing up and damaging paved structures, cut a 3" or deeper edging along the structure and pour Roebic Foaming Root Killer into the thin strip.  Repeat annually to prevent root growth near the surface along sidewalks and driveways.

IN BETWEEN ROOTS AND SEWER LINES: To prevent long term root growth from the tree to the sewer lines, a series of small holes may be bored into the ground near the offending tree or outside the sewer joints using water or mechanical boring equipment.  Add Roebic Foaming Root Killer to the holes and fill with soil.  Be sure that the location and depth of the hole is directly between the offending tree and sewer line.

Do not use conventional herbicides to kill roots in sewer or septic lines.  The improper use of herbicides that are not labeled for such use usually fails to do the job.  Conventional herbicides (and pesticides) should never be flushed down toilets or drains where they can create problems with water supplies and pose other hazardous threats.  Roebic K-77 and Root Killer Foam are products that are designed to kill unwanted roots in specific areas - without creating problems for water supplies, surrounding landscapes, sewer lines and septic systems.

If used regularly both K-77 Root Killer and Foaming Root Killer will work to maintain a "root-free" system and help to avoid the inconveniences that result from root clogs such as back-ups and surface break outs.

Cannot be shipped to CT, CO and the following counties in CA: Alameda, Napa, San Francisco, Solano, Marin, San Mateo, Sonoma.
