Check the fine print
We purchased this but had to return it when we read the fine print on the label. Directly from the package, "State law prohibits the use of this product in sewage systems in the State of Connecticut. Not for sale or use in the California counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano and Sonoma for root control in sewers. Not for sale or use in septic systems in the States of Florida, Massachusetts, and State of Washington." So, we could not use this product. I rated it based on the averages, but we had to return it ourselves.

        I was having basement sewage backups on and off for months. Multiple plumbers came and snaked the main line over a 3 month period in this past winter. The last plumber in March said the snake came back with evidence of tree roots and said my home warranty would not cover any more calls if roots were discovered. He recommended a costly dig and replacement of the main line. I searched for alternative options and found this Zep Root Kill at my local Home Depot and afternoon talking with an associate I decided to try it and also bought a bag of Copper Sulfate with it. This Zep Root Kill is the real deal. I put it in the basement toilet and it started foaming up immediately. I flushed quickly and followed it up immediately with the bag of Copper Sulfate. It was a Hail Mary in my opinion and I have been extremely happy because I haven’t Had a single backup in 3 months. Zep Root Kill works! I highly recommend it to anyone needing quick help. Just make sure you read and follow the instructions that are clearly written on the bottle. You won’t be disappointed. I never leave reviews but this product saved me thousands of dollars in repairs and it’s my way of saying thanks. Hope this helps others as much as it did me.

        My sewer line was blocked with roots in Dec. 2012 and I had to have a plumber grind it out. Since then I have put 1/2 Lb. of root kill into my sewer line, where it enters the floor in the basement, every Sunday night before going to sleep. I make an application chute out of an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of folded paper (green in photo). I only run a small amount of water afterwards to rinse the measuring cup that was used and to wash my hands. I do not flush any toilets or run a lot of water until Monday morning. The line has not become blocked again as of April 2018.

        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.

                      Root cause
                      I use one every year since the previous router service 16 years ago. A few weeks ago I got a minor clog in the drain and routed the drain discovering that the root cause (no pun intended) was not roots. In fact, no sign of any roots. Very good!

                              I have been using this product for over 20 years ever since i was told by a plumber it really works. I had him come over to clean my sewer lines out due to tree roots and other plumbers charged $300. + every time i needed a clean out,. since I started ,( twice a year with the change of daylight savings time) I have never needed another plumber to clean out my drains. So for $13.98 twice a year I am worry free & root free year round ..

                                I’ve used Zep root killer for about 4yrs. It keeps the roots from a black walnut tree out of my main drain to my house. The Plummer who snaked the drain line originally prior to me using Zep said it’s working. Because he cannot detect any roots in the drainage pipe!

                                    We had a really bad problem with roots getting into our waste line and having our waste water back up. Been using this product, 1 whole bottle treatment 2-3 times a year and have not had a problem for going on 8 years!
