VAPOROOTER is a combination of herbicides that are placd 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 affected. Trees and shrubs immediately above ground are not harmed.
VAPOROOTER is composed of:
An 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 materials 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 of 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.
Recognized by EPA as an effective root control method. According to EPA 600/2-77-017a, Vaporooter is the "only acceptable method of chemical control" and "no other method of chemical control approaches the effectiveness found in Vaporooter".
