ROOTX ROOT DESTROYER
Why Do I Need RootX?
Roots from trees and shrubs frequently find their way into drain lines and sewer
pipes through extremely small cracks, holes or poorly sealed joints. These tiny
root hairs if not properly controlled can continue to grow inside your lines,
blocking water flow and even causing the pipes to break. Worst of all, once
these roots grow in a specific direction, they'll continue to grow back in that
same direction causing similar blockage problems later. So to really solve the
problem once the offending roots are removed, you have to retard their future
growth. If the flow of water is slow through your drain line but before it's
completely blocked use the location finder to find your nearest Roto-Rooter.
Roto-Rooter service technicians have the proper training and equipment to cut
through root blockages and restore flow to your line.
What To Do When You Suspect Roots Are Blocking Your Drain Lines And Sewer
In addition, your Roto-Rooter service technician can advise you on the necessary
steps to prevent the problem from reoccurring. For example, a once-a-year
application of RootX can retard the growth of roots near
your drain line; all you have to do is pour the recommended dosage into your
toilet bowl and flush the product into the line. RootX will
kill only the roots growing into the pipes and will not affect the rest of your
plant's root systems.
ROTO-ROOTER® PIPE SHIELD
Why Do I Need Pipe Shield?
Drains run slower and slower as greases, soaps, fats and detergents build up on
the inner walls of your pipes and eventually cause blockage. With Roto-Rooter
Pipe Shield, you can keep your drains running freely, quickly, safely and

Biological Formula Works Like Mother Nature!
Roto-Rooter Pipe Shield utilizes the same technology as the environmentally safe
products used to clean up oil spills in the ocean. Through natural biological
activity, non-toxic, beneficial bacteria absorb the grease and organic buildups
in your pipes and convert them into harmless by-products: carbon dioxide and
water. In addition, a biofilm coats the inside of your drain pipes and continues
to consume the organic wastes - until those wastes are gone.
Deodorizes As It Cleans!
Typically, a single treatment of Roto-Rooter Pipe Shield lasts for several
this time, a pleasant and refreshing scent deodorizes your drain pipes as the
biofilm works to remove the sources of waste that cause unpleasant odors.
No Harmful Chemicals!
Roto-Rooter Pipe Shield contains no acids or caustic ingredients like many of
the drain openers you find at supermarkets or hardware stores. Roto-Rooter Pipe
Shield will not harm your pipes - copper, PVC or iron - regardless of how often
it's used. And it's safe for all drains - kitchen and bathroom sinks, bathtubs,
showers and laundry tubs. Roto-Rooter Pipe Shield is safe for the environment,
too! Some drain products contain solvents, which can inhibit bacterial action
and cause problems at municipal treatment plants. Roto-Rooter Pipe Shield
contains no solvents and is approved for use by municipalities and
water-treatment facilities across the country.
Roto-Rooter Pipe Shield is an economical concentrate that mixes at a ratio of
one part Pipe Shield concentrate to eight parts water. Two ounces of Roto-Rooter
Pipe Shield in each of your drains every month is your easiest and most
economical way to ensure free-flowing drains year-round, year after year.
SEPTIC TANK TREATMENT
Why Do I Need Septic Tank Treatment?
In a typical septic system, household wastes, including discarded food scraps,
laundry water, cooking oils and grease, flow to a watertight septic tank, where
they are decomposed by bacteria. In the tank, the complex food and waste
particles are broken down by natural bacterial processes so that they can
percolate into the subsoil surrounding a drainage field.
Inside the tank, the majority of the waste decomposes into sewage water, while
solids settle to the bottom and accumulate as sludge. Other lighter particles
including grease and oil rise to the surface and form a scum. The decomposed
sewage water then flows from the tank, through a distribution box and into a
drainage field, which is a series of perforated pipes laid below ground in a bed
of gravel. The liquid leaches out through the gravel and is further purified as
it percolates through the soil. The more complete the decomposition of household
waste, the more efficiently and trouble-free a septic system functions.
However, when a septic system is overloaded or not properly maintained, the
bacterial decomposition can slow or stop, causing untreated liquid and solid
wastes to overflow into the soil. Excessive use of bleaches, disinfectants and
caustic or acid drain cleaners also deters the bacterial action of the system,
and greases and solids can build up until they choke the system and block the
flow of the liquid into the soil. When this happens, the drain field may have to
be excavated and replaced, which is a costly undertaking.
How To Prevent Problems In Your Septic System
Have your septic system checked and the accumulated sludge pumped by your local
Roto-Rooter company every two or three years.
Add Roto-Rooter Septic Tank Treatment to your septic system monthly to maintain a
healthy, free-flowing system. For normal system maintenance, pour the entire
contents of a one-quart container directly into a toilet bowl and flush. To
ensure peak system performance, repeat this procedure every four to six months,
as well as each time your tank is pumped. For problem systems, add one quart
weekly for eight weeks, followed by monthly treatments. For best results, do not
add disinfectants, laundry bleaches or caustic or acid drain cleaners to the
system for several days following treatment.
If problems persist, contact your local Roto-Rooter company to check the
condition of your septic system. Severely clogged or damaged drain fields may
have to be dug up and replaced.
