Product Overview

ZEP 2 lb. Root Kill is an effective solution for ridding your sewer pipes, drain and septic field lines of shrub and tree roots. Plant roots can penetrate through small cracks and poorly sealed joints of sewer lines. If not controlled, these small roots will continue to grow larger causing breakage, reduced flow, and eventually flow stoppage. Root Kill's powerful granular formula dissolves these pipe-clogging elements on contact without harming the target tree or bush.

  • Dissolves septic systems clog-causing roots
  • Powerful granular formula dissolves roots without harming shrubs or trees
  • Protects pipes from corrosion
  • Promotes root and fungus control within sewage system
  • Childproof cap

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It was my best purchase ever I used this product and it was Fabulous, more then I ever expected June 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A blessing in disguise I have a 30 yr old pine tree on my porch that's been causing problems with my sewage. I noticed my toilet and bath tub drains would constantly back up. Sometimes my toilet bowl would overflow whenever I took a shower. I didnt want to call any plumbers cuz i knew I would paying alot out of my pocket. So i did some research on products that would help get rid of those nasty roots. I decided to give this a try 3 months ago. Low and behold this stuff works. It took awhile, but noticed the results and my drains are finally flowing free with no backups. I will definitely be using this product at least once a year to keep those roots from coming back...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A must if you have an older sewer line with roots getting in at the joints My home was built in the 60's and the 150' main sewer line has seen better days. I had the line cleaned out when we moved in and I thought I would be good for a while. After about 4 years it backed up again and I spent another small fortune having a plumber come out and cut out the obstructions. Now I use this twice a year and I don't have to worry about my sewer backing up into the house. I know I have to fix the main line but now I can save for the cost and plan when I want to do it. July 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Twice a year keeps our system happy We've got a known area of root intrusion that is going to be VERY difficult to access and repair. We've been using this twice a year since the rest of the line was cleaned-out 3 years ago and haven't had the roots take over again since. Very pleased. July 7, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Root Kill I have used this product for about 15-20 years and have never had to have the pipe rootered due to tree roots. I would recommend this product over any other I have used to keep roots from growing into the pipe. My only complaint is that Home Depot does not seem to stock this item in-store any longer, please put it back on the shelves. Thank you. July 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by root killer product works well if applied every six months-keeps roots out of septic drain field July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zep Root Kill My home does not have one tree on the property but the homes on both sides have huge, beautiful trees that are about 100 years old. Because I am forever hiring plumbers to relieve my sewer lines (3-4 times per year) from the roots, my handyman suggested I try Zep's Root Kill. Root Kill is a miracle worker it clears the lines without killing the trees. I'm going to use it right through the spring growing season. The drains are already running much better. I plan on stock-piling this stuff. Sure beats the price of the plumbers. I would recommend this to anyone that suspects that they may have a tree root problem. January 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works This has stopped the sewer guy from coming for 2 years now. We use it every 2 months and have not had a problem. May 10, 2016
