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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Daboyisin great for preventing pond algae.
I add about 3 lbs ( one container) to my natural pond (20 ft X 100 ft , 6 ft deep average) once a month and it cures all my algae problems along with a water spout fountain.
Even though this use is NOT listed on the packaging, it is the chemical that is used in a farmer style algaecide found at my local feed store. Also is safe for animals/fish and birds when used at this concentration. If your not sure how much to add, try a little at a time, wait one week and check the progress . If your algae is turning brown or red you have added enough. Be sure to NOT OVER APPLY THIS CAN BE TOXIC.

This has stopped the sewer guy from coming for 2 years now. We use it every 2 months and have not had a problem.

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!

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.

I used this product many years ago for roots in my sewer system, after I had to get a plumbing company to clear out a major clog. I must say it saved me thousands of dollars in RotoRooter house calls. I cut down the offending trees and had no problem until my neighbors planted cherry trees on the other side of the fence. Recently, my kitchen sink totally backed up and the clog was way down in the drain - not in the sink. Those cherry tree roots have invaded everywhere in my garden, so I figured the clog is probably also from their roots.
I have also poured it down my PVC lines that drain the water from my downspouts. They also seem to be clogged and I am guessing also roots. I just hope it works as well as it did the last time I used it.
I have since recommended it to a few other people who have slow moving drains. My high ratings are based on my previous experience. It is really too soon to tell if it has had any effect yet.
