  • Consumers find it reliable and easy to use
  • Best if used on a consistent,annual basis
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

If I just had the roots in my sewer line cut by snake/auger should I use Root Kill right away or should I wait for a while??
Asked by: Lou
USE IMMEDIATELY!!! I use 1 can every 8 weeks in the toilet closest to the line to the sewer. Had my roots cleared 3 times in 6 months until I started using this in January 2016. I haven't talked to my plumber since. Use the entire can every 8 weeks, that's what I do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Root Kill I have used Root Kill for many years. My town has been designated as a Tree Town and every home has at least one tree on the property. While I love trees I don't care for the damage their roots can do to your property and sewer pipes. I used to have the roto rooter guy out every year until I discovered Root Kill. It does a great preventive job, and now I only have to have my sewer line professionally cleaned out every 4-5 years. When I am going on vacation or away for a long weekend I pour half a bottle into my basement toilet, flush it and go away. That gets the root kill into the sewer line in direct contact with the roots that have grown into my sewer pipe. The product helps to dissolve the roots that grew into the pipe. I've twice asked the drain cleaning guys about the product and both times was told it is a good preventive item.

We have an older home, older pipes and those hairline cracks in the water/sewer pipes get clogged SPRING/FALL with little roots. Eventually you get a clog, mine were on Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend! You can imagine the cost of that! The last time we had a problem, 25 years ago, the owner gave us this little secret. ROOT KILL. When we turn the clocks back/forward, we use the ROOT KILL; no more clogs! Thank you for the opportunity to tell others about this great product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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...

It was recommended by a friend who said it seems to be working for them so I am giving it a try. I like the ease of application, just pour it into the toilet and flush. I have had problems in the past (before using this) and I am hopeful the root kill will work well for me. I can update later when I have a better chance to say for sure. I can say though it does seem to be working for my friend which is why I am trying it.

I started using this product two years ago to prevent recurrence of root growth in sewer line. Have had no known problem since, and drains are flowing freely continuously. The insignificant price of Zep compared to the $10k, and a destroyed back yard, is a "no-brainer." The old and quite permanent maple tree stands right over the sewer line and next to the garage. Zep is my choice for right now and I am optimistic. Of course, time will tell.

During septic clean out roots were found in septic, contractor advised I use this product to avoid pipe blockage and break down roots to keep septic from damage. Not sure if it worked as I had not reopened the tank but it’s been 18 months and still no blocked pipes. It’s recommended to use product at beginning and end of growing season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good Had a problem with roots clogging our sewer drain 15 years ago. Began using Zep root kill annually at that point and have not experienced the problem since. Usually administer the product just before we leave home for a few days to give it plenty of time to work.
