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".

NEW DIGITAL JET-SET COMMANDER

If the Jet Set Commander had been around in the 60's you wouldn't have a root problem now. This state-of-the-art, patented technology has revolutionized root foaming. A touch screen controller makes root foaming as easy as pushing a button. The computerized system automatically mixes the two ingredients, foaming agent, water and air to deliver exactly the right amount of chemical in a dense foam that fills the pipe, coating every inch of every root.

The Jet Set Commander was designed to be retrofit onto virtually all major jet or combo trucks, and is available as optional equipment for Vactor, Vac-Con and Sewer Equipment of America units.

Application of Vaporooter is so easy that, typically, a two-person crew can treat sanitary sewers in a fraction of the time it would take a full crew to cut them.
