ROOT X - Dissolve Roots

What is ROOTX?  

The root intrusion solution!!!

RootX is the original, non-metal sodium foaming root control in an easy-to-apply powdered formulation. It foams on contact with water to kill roots, inhibit regrowth, and restore pipe flow capacity


It's simple and fast.

The patented RootX formulation foams on contact with water, filling the entire pipe to reach the top where 90% of pipeline root intrusion occurs. From start to finish, a RootX application takes less than 30 minutes whether you are working with main or lateral lines.


It's an effective and proven treatment.

The active ingredient in RootX is the aquatic herbicide Dichlobenil that has been used for years to control aquatic weeds.

RootX contains surfactants, degreasing agents that strip away the grime on roots, allowing Dichlobenil to penetrate the root ends.

RootX is labeled for use in both sanitary and storm pipes and is not a restricted use product.


It's a proven solution.

RootX promotes bacterial growth that assists in the decomposition of dead roots. For over a decade thousands of municipalities and Professional Drain Cleaners depend on RootX for their maintenance solution.

Step 1 - Mechanical cutting of roots clears roots from pipes, leaving some behind. Step 2 - Add RootX. Foam kills remaining roots and inhibits future regrowth.  
Twelve weeks later...  
With RootX, debris is decaying and roots are stunted. Without RootX, roots begin vigorous regrowth into the newly cleared space.  
Nine months later...  
With RootX Without RootX  
RootX restores pipe flow capacity!
