One of the most common causes of sewer line blockages is tree roots invading the pipe. They sneak in through joints or cracks in the pipe looking for water and nutrients. Over time they grow, debris gets caught in them, and this leads to blockages and even backflow.

Some situations such as heavy root blockage will require mechanical removal of roots. Mechanical removal is an excellent short term solution. However, if the roots are cut and left untreated, they will eventually come back bigger and stronger. This process will eventually destroy a sewer line and require it to be excavated and replaced. RootX requires none of this. It is safe, simple, effective solution to pipeline root intrusion.
