Chemical Root Killer

Sewer Line Tree Root intrusion is the single most destructive element that can affect your drainage system. 
Tree roots can completely destroy a sewer or septic system if Left untreated. As tissue and other materials travel down the drain they can become trapped in the root mass and cause for a complete blockage of your drainage system. Mechanical root cutters do a good job at creating a path for water and waste to escape once a drain has backed up but they do not remove the remaining roots that caused the problem in the first place.

The Use of a Chemical Root Killer can Solve Root Intrusion Problems for up to a Year.
