Cleaning Tips(Please follow cautions and instructions on the label carefully.)
SEWER TREATMENT FOR ROOT CONTROL
Roots of shrubbery and trees growing near sewer lines frequently penetrate pipes in search of moisture and nutrients. If not controlled, root hairs will grow in diameter and number causing tile breakage, gradual reduced flow, and sometimes complete stoppage. ROOT CLEAR is effective in keeping sewer lines free of roots. It is safe for drain systems and does not harm outdoor shrubbery or trees.
FOR HOUSEHOLD SEWERS
Use 2 to 6 lbs. of ROOT CLEAR twice yearly in spring and early fall. Apply ROOT CLEAR in toilet bowl near sewer line. Flush ½ lb. portions of ROOT CLEAR at a time or remove the clean-out plug and pour entire quantity of ROOT CLEAR directly into sewer line then flush with water. NOTE: Do not apply through sink or tub drains as it will corrode these metal drains.
SEPTIC TANKS & DRAIN FIELDS
ROOT CLEAR will precipitate in the septic tank and little will pass into the absorption drain field. TO TREAT DRAIN FIELD PIPES: Add 2 to 6 lbs. of ROOT CLEAR to distribution box located between the septic tank and the drain field. If distribution box does not have an opening, it is advisable to install a clean out plug opening into the outlet pipe, from the septic tank leading to the drain field, for effective clearing of drain field pipes. Note: Do not apply ROOT CLEAR through sink or tub drains as it will corrode these metal drains.
FOR COMPLETE STOPPAGE
Physically remove the root blockage and follow above instructions. Keep hands, face and children away from drains while using. Never use a plunger during or after use or take trap or pipes apart because chemicals may still be present if drain did not clear. Consult plumber.
