Root X kills roots on contact; the dead roots decay over time and are carried out with the flow of the pipe, restoring the pipe to its full capacity. RootX also leaves a barrier on the pipe walls to prevent future root growth. Unlike other brands with harsh chemicals, RootX Contains NO Copper Sulfate and is completely safe on septic systems, pipes and lines. RootX root killer is non-caustic and safe for all internal piping.
RootX uses the aquatic herbicide Dichlobenil. It is non-caustic, non-fumigating and non-systemic, and, unlike other products, does not contain diquat dibromide, copper sulfate or metam sodium.
RootX will not harm pipes, septic systems or above-ground vegetation (not for use in septic systems in the state of Florida). RootX has minimal environmental impact and is registered with the EPA (#68464-1) in all 50 states as well as Canada, and is classified as a General Use Product. In addition, RootX carries the signal word CAUTION, the lowest chemical hazard rating.
