R-D really works

By Paul

from Arlington, Virginia

Verified Buyer

Comments about <em>2lb. R-D (root destroyer)</em>:

I have a very old sewer system that is prone to root invasion from nearby trees. I used to have to have Roto-Rooter come out every couple of years to clear the system out because it would backup. I have been using R-D for about 10 years three times a year and have never had a sewer backup since. This stuff really works!

Necessary product for clear sewer lines

By Bobby K

Verified Buyer

Comments about <em>2lb. R-D (root destroyer)</em>:

We have a root problem with our sewer line. Root destroyer which is copper sulfate crystals desolves the roots. Just one 1/2 pound once every three months does the trick!

I assume it's working, in main pipe

By Phyllis

Comments about <em>2lb. R-D (root destroyer)</em>:

I got a recommendation from my pipe line guy to throw 1 lb of R-D once a month between Sept thru March. I hope it's working!! I love the fact that I could order it on line and have it delivered to my door.

R-D root destroyer

By Tani

from Vista, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about <em>2lb. R-D (root destroyer)</em>:

I treat my drain line with R-D every six months because I have a tree near the line whose roots have entered the line in the past. I have had the roots cut out by a professional plumber, and now use R-D on schedule. I have not had any more root problems since I had the roots removed and started using R-D. The cost of the R-D is well worth not having to pay a rooter service to clean out the line.

Easy to use, keeps the lines clear

By Pam the gardener

from Pittsburgh, PA

Verified Buyer

Comments about <em>2lb. R-D (root destroyer)</em>:

Used to need a plumber to clean out our pipes yearly. Now, I use this product twice a year. Easy to use. Put in the clean-outs before going to bed. I was glad to be able to order a case of it so that it will be on hand six months from now when it will be time to use again. No problems with pipes since we started to use it.

RD2 root destroyer

By Shar

from Colorado

Verified Buyer

Comments about <em>2lb. R-D (root destroyer)</em>:

Love this product. Since I have a back yard completely surrounded by lilacs, I use this product to keep the roots at bay. It works great and have been using it for years. It does not kill the vegetation on the surface ground.

I have used this for 3 yrs now and love it. I was told I needed to replace my whole main drain. Friend recommended Hercules Root Destroyer. I saved thousands so far by not needing to replace anything.I use it twice a year and have had no plumbing problems for three years!!!

    Q:

    Is the root destroyer always poured down the toilet?
    Asked on 3/3/2014 by warden85 from Manchester, NH

      A:

      Yes, R-D must be poured into the toilet, never into sinks, tubs, or other drains.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Root Destroyer is poured into one of the traps on your waste system where the large cupric sulfate crystals slowly dissolve over time.

    Q:

    how quickly does it work on very slow drains
    Asked on 2/12/2014 by frustrated homeowner from daytona florida

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      The manufacturer recommends that you apply the product at times of low line usage so it has time to travel from the drain to the roots.

      A:

      I ended up replacing all the sewer pipes, and wish I did it from the start
      of the problems.

      I used the entire 2 pounds for treatment. And I'll use another 2 pounds in six months. Doesn't pay to skimp. ****@***.***

      A:

      Read the package insert. It says to use the whole 2 lb. every 6 months. I
      put the R-D in my sewer cleanout and follow it with a the same 2-lb
      container full of water. I do this on a weekend when I know I won't be home,
      so showers and toilet flushing won't wash it away.

      A:

      A 2 pound container is used once, poured slowly at intervals in the toiliet, but only have to do this twice a year. It kept mine open and lilac branches cleared for a long, long time.

      I would professionally have it cleaned out first then use the RD2
      twice a year to keep it cleaned of roots.

      It could take several days for roots to absorb the decaying. The manufacturer recommends that you apply the product at times of low line usage.
