COPPER SULFATE has been the preferred root killer by plumbers and contractors for use on sewer lines and septic lines for decades. We sell pure Copper Sulfate Crystals EPA bag AND Cu-FOAM (6-foaming packets to be used with copper sulfate root killers).
Please read this entire page to better understand root intrusions in sewers, and the best way to treat the issue.
PROBLEM: After many years of research and field reports it is well known that roots usually penetrate and grow from the TOP of the sewer down. Sewer systems are designed for water to only flow on the bottom 1/4 of the sewer pipe. Other chemical treatments including regular copper sulfate use gravity and the water current to deliver the root killer to the troubled area. Good right? Well what about the roots that are above the waters path? Those will shortly be taking the place of the roots that are currently blocking the flow requiring more treatments more frequently.
SOLUTION: Cu-FOAM + COPPER SULFATE THE ABSOLUTE ANSWER FOR ROOT CONTROL.
Cu-FOAM and Copper Sulfate earn their stay in your home, because of its FOAMING action that delivers the COPPER SULFATE to roots above and below the water line saving your system from total root takeover and your wallet from unneccasary expenses.
NOW A PRODUCT DEVELOPED AND MANUFACTURED BY YOURS TRULY, Cu-FOAM IS A PROPRIETARY SAFE CHEMICAL BLEND THAT IS PACKAGED IN 6 WATER SOLUBLE PACKETS (1 treatment $25 contains 6-foaming packets).
- Simply add the recommended amount of copper sulfate to the toilet, also add 1 or 2 Cu-FOAM packets. Upon contact with water the packets start dissolving.
- FLUSH the TOILET IMMEDIATELY 1x for 1 packet and 2x if you added 2 packets (never flush more then 2x). Now that YOU'VE UNLEASHED THE "BEAST"
- This next step is VERY IMPORTANT to obtain the best results. However, it is NOT required to be effective. If possible let the entire sewer system sit unused for a period of at least 3 HOURS (longer is ok but that doesnt mean use less copper sulfate or fewer packets).
We recommend you do a treatment when your leave the house and it will not be occupied for 3 hours or at night when everyone is asleep.
ATTENTION: ALL 6 PACKETS MUST BE USED (no more than 1 or 2 packets per "cycle") WITHIN 6 DAYS TO COMPLETE ONE TREATMENT.
"Cu-FOAM NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT AS A FOAMING SNAKE. FILLING THE WHOLE SEWER DIAMETER WITH AN AMAZING AND SAFE FOAM THAT CARRIES THE COPPER SULFATE. SUCCESSFULY SEEKING OUT TO DEVOUR EVERY ROOT INSIDE THE SEWER. THIS IS WHERE OTHER PRODUCTS ARE FALLING SHORT, SELLING DANGEROUS CHEMICALS THAT CANT BE PRONOUNCED AND THEY DONT EVEN FOAM OR THEIR FOAMING PRODUCT IS WHIMPY AND SHOULDNT BE LABELED AS "FOAMING.""
