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

Previous owner put an oak tree 2 feet from the house. It's broke my water main once and I cant use my sprinklers now since it squeezed the pipes til they broke. Need to get rid of this tree but for now just want to stop the roots from growing against the house.

2 lb. Root Kill is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 33.
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.

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...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommended by contractor Our contractor said this would kill the roots that are blocking our sewage. I'm using it religiously. I can say you shouldn't let the blue crystals touch your skin because your skin will start to feel dead and dry. Careful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works!! We have a problem with roots from the tree in our front yard. By using Root Kill, it helps to keep the drians from backing up and causing one big mess. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works if used correctly. This product is most effective right after the rooter tool has been used to clear the lines of any roots. Those cut roots are now exposed and this product will have better penetration to finish the job. Apply it through the trap or toilet but don't flush it with too much water. It has to sit in the pipe to work. As for that other review: A bubbling toilet?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Annual treatment I leave in a very wooded area where many neighbors require their drain tile and/or sewer pipes to be roted every few years. I"ve been using ZEP root killer for about 4-5 yrs. I utilize it 1/yr in the early spring...just dump some into my drain tile and also some into the basement toilet as per the directions. Haven't had any issue with my drian tile nor had to make any calls to a plumber.
