Although some roots may be unable to break drainpipes, they can invade empty spaces of the pipes that are already broken or cracked.

Foaming Root Killers

Roots usually find their way into sewer pipes from above. It is advisable to use root-killing chemicals that dissolve in water including foaming root killers. You can find foaming root killers at our facilities in Pomona. Our root foaming killers contain dichobenil and are not toxic to humans. In addition, we have other root killing formulas for people who are concerned about introducing chemicals into their sewer systems.

Proceed with Caution

Most states permit the use of root killing products on sewer systems. However, it is important to understand the proper use of these chemicals to avoid potential health risks. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to the latter when using root-killing products. In addition, be sure to wear appropriate safety gear such as gloves and goggles while handling these chemicals because they can be toxic. Sewage may be waste to you but it is a nutritious meal to the roots growing near and around your sewer line. They will take advantage of any small opening in the lines to invade your sewer system.
