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.

  • Powerful granular formula dissolves roots without harming shrubs or trees
  • Protects pipes from corrosion
  • Promotes root and fungus control within sewage system

Questions & Answers

I have 115 feet sewer lines how and how much should I use ?

Asked by: Kabir
I cannot answer how much to get it to the cause. My entire lot is only 120 feet and 1936 house is only 15 feet from front street sewer connection. Roots from next door's maple tree are the cause of my problem. My sewer guy told me to use root kill (or the more expensive more work mix) every six months. Put into main sewer (mine is circle on basement floor - wrench open) at night when lines are done for day, flush ONCE. In morning done. So far I have not had water again from my basement drain overflow - it happened twice in a short while. Good thing I have utility insurance.

The distance from my toilet to the city hook up is approx. 100 ft and my tree roots about half of that. will one 2 lb. application a year be enough or should I use 2 containers? When is the best time of year to add? I live in Idaho.
Asked by: Bud
It seems to work for me. My root problem starts at about 40ft and goes on from there. Our total length is 130ft to city.

Had roots get in my drain line last year and had to call a plumber to clear the line. Started putting Root Kill down the toilet as per the directions because I had read so many good reviews. I had put a total of 4 treatments through since last year and 2 days ago I had my drain line backup on us again. Camera inspection showed 3 large growths of very healthy roots. It seems the Root Kill did nothing to help our root issue. While others have had good results... I very much did not. Basically I wasted my money on this stuff and have another treatment of it sitting there that I will be getting rid of.

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...

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.

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.

So due to the fact that my plumbing needs were greater than the Zep Root Kill, average is all I can give it. I will use what I have left for the purpose of keeping my line flowing. Hopefully il be able to rate higher based on actual findings.
