Customer Questions & Answers

What is the size jar I need to treat a 50 foot sewer line?

Asked by: Terri
On the roebic.com they have a video that states this 1 bottle can do 50'. Which I am surprised at compared to their competitors 2 lb requirement. And they are separated it turns out. Odd I thought they should be mixed first using a mask. They are using 2 flushes of the toilet twice and not even stating how many gallons the toilet is rated at. http://www.roebic.com/videos.shtml#root-killer

Will it kill the bacteria in my septic tank?

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

1 lb. Foaming Root Killer is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 21.

After pouring the first bottle into the toilet, I opened the 2nd bottle but I found that the 2nd bottle has a hardened big chunk instead powders in it. I did use a screwdriver to break the chunk and use it anyway. But I am definitely not happy with the fact that the product was not well stored or sealed before sale. Also, I don't know if the 2nd bottle would still work. BTW, I bought and used the two bottles on the same day (01/23/2017).

I had a sewer block and had to call cleaners and they found roots in pipes. They were able to remove whatever got caught in the auger. I did some research and learned that I needed foaming product such as this to reach roots coming from above. I used this product and there has been no sewer blockages. I guess the product works. I intent to use copper sulfate to pour every few months to make sure that there is no root growth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved hundreds of dollars Used the Roebic foaming root killer for five years now. Previously had to have the old porous clay sewer piple cleared by a sewer service with an electric sewer machine every two years. If you use the root killer in the spring and leave it for six hours before flushing the toilet it rrally works

The foam reaches up and kills roots. I live under 4 huge oaks. Drain cleaner guy recommended it. Used to call him 1-2 a year. Haven't called him for 5 years. Use it every 90 days.
