Answer: 
I'd say yes it's possible. The active ingredient is non selective. I'd be cautious with non munciple sewer lines.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great--but occasional bad jar I notice that most people are very happy with the foaming root killer and a few think it's not worth it. I'm very happy, but I can see why some people are not. For the past 4 years, it has prevented expensive calls to the plumber to snake the line. However, not every jar has been as "powdery" as others. Perhaps the solidified ones were manufactured, packaged, or stored in high humidity before purchase? As long as Home Depot will let me return the occasional bad jar, I won't mind the occasional jar being bad. (But if they don't let me return it, I will definitely delete a star.) December 14, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad experience I purchased the 1lb foaming Roebic Root Killer product today. When trying to use it, following directions, I couldn't get product out of the jar, even with a plastic knife. It was hard and sticky as clay. I'm taking it back to the store for a refund tomorrow.

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 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 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 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 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
