Questions & Answers

What is the size jar I need to treat a 50 foot sewer line?

Asked by: Terri
On the roebic.com they have a video that states this 1 bottle can do 50'. Which I am surprised at compared to their competitors 2 lb requirement. And they are separated it turns out. Odd I thought they should be mixed first using a mask. They are using 2 flushes of the toilet twice and not even stating how many gallons the toilet is rated at. http://www.roebic.com/videos.shtml#root-killer

I need to use 2 jars, since the roots are 60 ft. from the house. Can I apply each jar separately, then flush each time, to avoid both product foaming up and overflowing when used together? Or must I put them in together?
Asked by: Bella
Yes, you can use the product in more than one location on your pipes.

1 lb. Foaming Root Killer is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We've been dealing with roots over 10 years. After buying my own snake and dealing with the nasty... We've been dealing with roots over 10 years. After buying my own snake and dealing with the nasty poo and food, breaking snake line and hiring a plumber, I found this and decided to try it. I was VERY skeptical and first time using it was a success. After years of using it on a regular basis (every quarter), I have not had to buy a new snake line or hire a plumber. I have 100+ feet of main to the city main. If everyone READS the instructions, 1 bottle covers only 50 feet. That includes from the toilet to the main. If your tree is out in the middle of your yard, you need to estimate the total distance from your toilet to the city main and use the appropriate number of jars. I buy 3 bottles every quarter to go 100+ feet to the city main. Please be smart and shake the jar in the store to see if it is loose inside. As for getting a jar that is hard, return it. Home Depot has a no fuss return policy if the product is not right.

This was in my mainline drain for 3 days before a professional arrived to clear the line. Roots were removed from the line. There was no sign that this product was having any effect on the roots that were pulled from my drain.

I saw them with a camera our last plumber that we had. He ran down the sewer lines. I found Root killer online from Home Depot. I tried the root killer. The instructions are really simple. I added this item to my calendar to use every six months. If this product does what it says it will do, then it is well worth the price. It has been 3-4 months now since I used this product. And so far I have not needed a plumber.

After pouring the first bottle into the toilet, I opened the 2nd bottle but I found that the 2nd bottle has a hardened big chunk instead powders in it. I did use a screwdriver to break the chunk and use it anyway. But I am definitely not happy with the fact that the product was not well stored or sealed before sale. Also, I don't know if the 2nd bottle would still work. BTW, I bought and used the two bottles on the same day (01/23/2017).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great--but occasional bad jar I notice that most people are very happy with the foaming root killer and a few think it's not worth it. I'm very happy, but I can see why some people are not. For the past 4 years, it has prevented expensive calls to the plumber to snake the line. However, not every jar has been as "powdery" as others. Perhaps the solidified ones were manufactured, packaged, or stored in high humidity before purchase? As long as Home Depot will let me return the occasional bad jar, I won't mind the occasional jar being bad. (But if they don't let me return it, I will definitely delete a star.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product We moved into this home 3 years ago and have had back ups at least twice every year. Usually we rent a snake and clear it out. After the line was snaked twice in less than a week, I thought it was time to clean the pipes. I used a line cleaner first and it cleared the line pretty good. I then used the Root Killer and now all of my drains are moving like they should. Since I have no idea when or if theses pipes have ever been cleaned out I will use Root Killer again in a few weeks and then once a year to keep my drains in shape. Easier and less expensive than having a plumber come out or renting a snake twice a year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ROOT KILLER BEEN USING THIS PRODUCT ONCE A YEAR FOR THE PAST 3 YEARS, HAVE NOT NEED TO CALL A PLUMMER SINCE THEN. PRIOR TO USING I WAS CALLING ONCE A YEAR TO HAVE THE MAIN PIPE FROM THE HOUSE TO STREET SNAKED DUE TO ROOTS. $20 BUCKS IS A LOT CHEAPER THAN THE $ 300.00 I WAS PAYING A PLUMMER EACH CALL. I WAS READING A PREVIOUS REVIEW ABOUT USING PRODUCT AT NIGHT BEFORE BED TIME IVE DONE THE SAME WITH GREAT RESULTS, LETTING PRODUCT WORK WHILE YOUR SLEEPING FOR AT LEAST 6 HOURS. AWSOME PRODUCT!!!
