Tried out Zep Root Kill to help rid our drain pipe of roots. We did a video rooter and saw 3 spots where roots were in the pip before the mainline. We would have to rooter it once a year because the toilets, showers and sinks would get clogged [Learn more below].

After the drain cleaning, everything was fine until more roots grew. We tried other products on the market, but finally tried this Zep Inc products root kill, root killer. It actually worked and helped the situation. However, I guess the only way to really know is to do another video rooter, but as long as there are no clogs, I’m pretty happy.
I’ve heard that other products that foam up will rot your pipes and corrode the copper metal, so haven’t really tried those, but definitely tried other things. We tried shorter augers. We tried natural remedies and just crazy plunging. But it never worked. That’s why the Zep product was so impressive.
Another reason why we went this route is that our “clean out” (large drain pipe opening to mainline) is under the house and not easily accessible. We can a small exterior Drain pipe access, but it’s a 2″ inch pipe? So only the smaller snake can get in; which most plumbers only carry 25 to 50 foot lengths in that size. The root cutting tip that is on those are big enough to cut through roots, but a plumber I hired had a customized tip that worked. But for the most part, to use the heavy duty pipe clearing drain snake rooter machines, you need a big clean out pipe. That was our situation.
The main ingredient is Copper Sulfate Pentahydrate. The crystals are blue and the size of large salt grains. This is the 2lbs. bottle. I only used half the dosage. Since I’ve put the stuff down the drain, we haven’t had any backups. The roots seem to haven’t grown back. I put the date on the bottle because I read that you should do it twice a year. I definitely recommend you try this product if you have root problems in your pipes.
