The ClearRoot product is a special formula that when it meets water, the ingredients create a root killing foam that leaves a coating on the roots and pipe wall. This not only kills the roots but prevents regrowth for a period. Unlike other products, ClearRoot reaches the top of the pipe where 90% of the root intrusion occurs.
If roots can fully grow into a pipe, it can require mechanical cutting to remove them. Utilizing only mechanical removal of roots can be expensive, hard on your pipes and encourage aggressive root growth. By utilizing an annual ClearRoot maintenance program through Cleanflow Environmental Solutions, you will save money.
The ClearRoot formula has been killing roots for 20 + years. The active ingredient in ClearRoot is the aquatic herbicide Dichlobenil which is used to control weed growth in residential flower beds and aquatic environments. The ClearRoot formula also contains surfactants and de-greasing agents that strip away the grime and grease on roots, allowing the Dichlobenil to penetrate to root cells.
