Direct Pour Method
The direct pour method only takes 2-3 minutes to apply and can be used on pipes with a diameter of 8 inches or less, which are too small for the FDU 300. The direct pour method can also be useful on larger-diameter pipes with extreme blockages in which the 300 applicator cannot be attached.
Treating small lines and service laterals (6-10 inches)
RootX Application Chart
Take the RootX bag out of the box and remove the tie separating the two chemicals.
Grasp both ends of the bag and rock it back and forth for about a minute to mix the two chemicals together. For RootX to work properly, the chemicals must be completely mixed, creating a uniform gray mixture throughout the bag.
Pour the mixed RootX chemical directly from the package into the upstream manhole or cleanout.
Immediately pour five gallons of water per pound of RootX used. The water will activate the root-killing foam.
The natural flow of the line carries the foam down the pipe, coating the roots and pipe walls. The RootX foam leaves a barrier on the pipe to prevent re-growth.
