FAQs about Vaporooter and Sewer Root Control
WHY DO I HAVE TO KILL THE ROOTS?
IS IT SAFE?
Vaporooter is a chemical that is safe for use in septic and sewer systems. It is non-systemic in nature, which means that it will not damage tree or vegetation surrounding the roots it is applied to.
DOES IT ACTUALLY WORK?
- Emulsifiers work to remove anything that would inhibit the Vaporooter from coming into direct contact with the roots.
- A highly effective herbicide comes in contact with the roots and kills them both inside and outside the pipes.
- A growth retardant remains on the roots to inhibit the roots from coming back into your system for up to three years.
