The sewer drainage is important for any homeowner as it allows the out flow of waste water from the house to the sewer system of your home. We aim at adapting many precautionary measures to ensure that nothing clogs the drain and no sewer pipes get blocked.

About Vaporooter treatment

Vaporooter is nothing but a foam based herbicide chemical that can be applied to the drain pipes and sewer pipes to eliminate all sorts of trees and tree roots growing inside them. As it is an herbicide, it kills the plant parts growing inside the pipe but does not destroy the entire tree. The chemical only kills parts of the tree roots in sewer pipes where the foam has been applied and not the entire root, hence the garden tree can keep growing well. After killing the root, the foam adheres to the pipe wall for a long period of time which means if new roots grow after certain point of time they get killed as well, and thus any further growth is stopped. The small dead and dried roots can be manually cleaned easily from the pipelines.
