WHAT IS VAPOROOTER?
VAPOROOTER is a combination of herbicides that are placed in sewer
lines as a foam for the purpose of eliminating roots and preventing further
destruction of sewer pipe caused by live tree roots. Only roots within the pipe
and a very short distance outside the pipe are effected. Trees and shrubs immediately
above ground are not harmed.
VAPOROOTER IS COMPOSED OF:
A herbicide which penetrates root cell walls, bursts them and causes
the root to die and decay.
A root growth inhibitor
which attaches to surface-active organic material
to inhibit further root cell division or growth for approximately three years.
A surfactant blend which strips away grease and slime from the roots
permitting penetration for the formulation into the root mass.
A foaming agent which provides a durable, fine-textured "vehicle"
to carry Vaporooter into maximum contact with all roots and pipe surfaces.
Optimum foam Quality and quantity are achieved with the Vaporooter
System for cost-effective control of your sewer root problems.
