Got Roots? Goodbee Plumbing Has RootX!

One issue with pipes that many homeowners in the area are aware of is root intrusion.  St. Tammany Parish has many beautiful trees, all of which have roots that can cause damage to plumbing, leading to broken or blocked pipes.  Goodbee Plumbing in Covington can administer RootX, a treatment that offers an alternative to completely changing a line that is intruded upon by roots.


RootX is a foaming treatment made of components that are environmentally friendly.  The RootX website states:  “RootX kills roots using the aquatic herbicide Dichlobenil.  It’s non-caustic, non-fumigating, and non-systemic, and it contains no diquat dibromide, copper sulfate or metam sodium.  RootX will not harm pipes, septic systems or above-ground vegetation.”
Once RootX is applied to your sewer line, septic system or storm pipe, the treatment kills the roots and solidifies in the pipe.  This prevents any new growth from penetrating the pipe for up to twelve months.
