Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ROOT KILLER BEEN USING THIS PRODUCT ONCE A YEAR FOR THE PAST 3 YEARS, HAVE NOT NEED TO CALL A PLUMMER SINCE THEN. PRIOR TO USING I WAS CALLING ONCE A YEAR TO HAVE THE MAIN PIPE FROM THE HOUSE TO STREET SNAKED DUE TO ROOTS. $20 BUCKS IS A LOT CHEAPER THAN THE $ 300.00 I WAS PAYING A PLUMMER EACH CALL. I WAS READING A PREVIOUS REVIEW ABOUT USING PRODUCT AT NIGHT BEFORE BED TIME IVE DONE THE SAME WITH GREAT RESULTS, LETTING PRODUCT WORK WHILE YOUR SLEEPING FOR AT LEAST 6 HOURS. AWSOME PRODUCT!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by One of my all-time favorite discoveries About ten years ago, the drain from my house backed up. The plumber found roots filling the drain line in the yard near the street, and for $200 cleared them. This mess repeated the next year, and then 8 months later, then 6 months, then every four months. Most of the time this occurred on a Friday evening; go figure. Besides being a nasty sewerage backup inside, we couldn't run water or flush for nearly a day each time, until the plumber could come out. About five years ago, I tried Roebic foaming root killer. The foaming mechanism to clear the entire pipe sounded promising. I repeat the application in the cleanout (dump the powder and follow it with a 3 1/2 gallon bucket of water) when I go to bed, every 3 months (probably could go longer but it works for me), and have not had another sewer line backup in 5 years! I would hug the guy/gal who developed this product if I met him or her. HIGHLY recommended. February 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Product We moved into this home 3 years ago and have had back ups at least twice every year. Usually we rent a snake and clear it out. After the line was snaked twice in less than a week, I thought it was time to clean the pipes. I used a line cleaner first and it cleared the line pretty good. I then used the Root Killer and now all of my drains are moving like they should. Since I have no idea when or if theses pipes have ever been cleaned out I will use Root Killer again in a few weeks and then once a year to keep my drains in shape. Easier and less expensive than having a plumber come out or renting a snake twice a year. October 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product Great product. Make sure you apply it in the toilet at night. Have to follow the directions and let it sit in the line for at least six hours. Have had so many people tell me that they have had great results. It treats about 50 feet of sewer line. If your on a septic system it will only treat from the house to the tank. April 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by roebic works great foam worked well and saw water at the end of the lateral line in a couple of hours. killed and decomposed the roots of my live oak and cypress trees. January 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well if used as advised We have a 20' line (don't ask me about the rest of the plumbing in this house) from the kitchen, and we scoped the line before and after using this product: it clearly worked well. Unlike the non-foaming, which I know is a lot cheaper, roots were removed from the top of the line and not just the bottom. I recommend it. June 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product! Don't listen to the customers that complained that this product didn't work. Obviously they didn't use it as recommended. I tried several different products before this on a clog in my main drain from both guest and master bathrooms, didn't work. I poured this product in both toilets, flushed them both and viola! I was able to use both toilets within minutes. Checked the main drain from the cleanout, line was completely clean. No problems. Now I just need to find something this good for my line from the kitchen to back of house and I'd be a happy camper! April 12, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by did not foam This product did not foam up. The roebic company would not even respond to my complaint. November 21, 2013
