Product Overview

Instant Power Root Destroyer is designed to eliminate roots of plants and trees in sewer lines. After roots have accumulated enough copper sulfate, the roots will die and decay and water flow will increase. It will not harm trees or plants. As roots re-grow, follow up treatment will be required. We recommend using twice per year (Spring and Fall). Directions: Apply 1 pound of product (the whole container) twice a year to household sewers by flushing in a toilet closest to the main sewer line. If the toilet is not flushing well, try flushing pound at a time.
  • Kills roots of plants and trees invading sewer lines
  • Does not harm trees or plants
  • Large copper sulfate crystals
  • Apply twice per year (spring and fall)
  • Easy to use- just pour in toilet
  • 100% money back guarantee

Answer

Thanks for contacting Instant Power! It will be difficult to use this in a French drain. The copper sulfate need to be absorbed by the roots. If it can’t get to the roots it will not be be effective. If you have more questions please reach out to our hot line 214-943-4605. Thanks

The directions say to pour 1/2 of the container at a time and then flush....the product clumps in the bottom of the toilet and won’t flush. I eventually had to swirl them around and flush about 5-6 times. This product may work but getting into the sewer system is difficult.

I used it twice straight into the toilet it took a few pounds of the copper sulfate but it took care of the problem. I now use it regularly in my septic system and it flows again. I would recommend this product to anyone who has problems with the leech field.
