Focus on Root Control: RootX

January 2009 Vol. 64 No. 1
Use your own municipal maintenance crews and equipment with RootX to kill pipeline roots--they can treat a 400-foot mainline in 30 minutes or less. The patented RootX formula foams on contact with water to reach the top of the pipe where 90 percent of roots are. Dead roots decay over time, restoring your pipes to their full capacity. RootX kills roots using the aquatic herbicide Dichlobenil. It’s non-caustic, non-fumigating and non-systemic, and it contains no diquat dibromide, copper sulfate or metam sodium. RootX will not harm pipes, wastewater treatment operations or above-ground vegetation. RootX is registered for use in all 50 states as well as Canada, and it’s classified as a General Use product by the Environmental Protection Agency. In addition, RootX carries the signal word CAUTION, the lowest chemical hazard rating according to the ISO 3864-2 standard for hazard severity panels. RootX has a 10-year track record in municipal applications of all sizes and in cities of all sizes. 800.844.4974, www.rootx.com
