If you’re in water and sewer management or contracting, you know how roots in your sanitary sewers are choking the life out of your system. For decades they’ve been filling up the pipes and now you’re the one who has to deal with the blockages and overflows. You’ve tried cutting, which is time consuming, expensive and can actually make the problem worse. You’ve tried other chemicals or contractors, who don’t get the job done either.
Scientific research and more than a hundred million feet of experience prove Vaporooter is the most effective way to rid your system of roots.
Effective chemical root control in sewer systems was considered next to impossible until forty years ago, when scientific research discovered that a combination of metam sodium and dichlobenil make it possible.
Together, the two ingredients create a devastating one-two punch on roots. Metam sodium penetrates root cells, destroying the root on contact without harming the plants and trees above ground. Dichlobenil bonds to pipe walls, joints and cracks to prevent new growth from blocking pipes for years. Numerous studies have documented the effectiveness of Vaporooter when used in accordance with the label.
