Vaporooter Kills Roots - Period

If you're in water and sewer management or contracting, you know how roots in your sanitary sewers are choking the life out of your system. For decades they've been filling up the pipes and now you're the one who has to deal with the blockages and overflows. You've tried cutting, which is time consuming, expensive and can actually make the problem worse. You've tried other chemicals or contractors, who don't get the job done either.


Scientific research and more than a hundred million feet of experience prove Vaporooter is the most effective way to rid your system of roots.

Effective chemical root control in sewer systems was considered next to impossible until fifty years ago, when scientific research discovered that a combination of metam sodium and dichlobenil make it possible.

Together, the two ingredients create a devastating one-two punch on roots. Metam sodium penetrates root cells, destroying the root on contact without harming the plants and trees above ground. Dichlobenil bonds to pipe walls, joints and cracks to prevent new growth from blocking pipes for years. Numerous studies have documented the effectiveness of Vaporooter when used in accordance with the label.


Jet Set Commander

If the Jet Set Commander had been around in the 60's you wouldn't have a root problem now. This state-of-the-art, patented technology has revolutionized root foaming. A touch screen controller makes root foaming as easy as pushing a button. The computerized system automatically mixes the two ingredients, foaming agent, water and air to deliver exactly the right amount of chemical in a dense foam that fills the pipe, coating every inch of every root.

The Jet Set Commander was designed to be retrofit onto virtually all major jet or combo trucks, and is available as optional equipment for Vactor, Vac-Con and Sewer Equipment of America units.

Application of Vaporooter is so easy that, typically, a two-person crew can treat sanitary sewers in a fraction of the time it would take a full crew to cut them.

With over 50 years of continuous use, Vaporooter has a proven track record of success. It all means your sewer system can last longer with fewer sewer repairs. Fewer blockages and overflows. Fewer fines. And fewer midnight calls and headaches. So stop cutting and recutting. Vaporooter kills and inhibits root growth for years with one simple application, guaranteed.

Sewer systems simply weren't designed to handle the amount of grease pouring in from restaurants, homeowners and industry. Regardless of their design, you're still expected to keep the pipes flowing, so the grease has got to go.

The BAD NEWS is that your system's pipe surfaces are porous, giving grease a foothold to hang on and accumulate. The GOOD NEWS is that scientifically formulated Grease Release blasts out grease all the way down to the pores where it clings. These are then filled with surfactants that slow future build-ups and enhance preventative maintenance programs by coating surfaces with a grease-repelling barrier that makes cleaning simpler, easier and more effective.


BioJet microbial surfactant is engineered to literally eat away grease, fats and oils in drain lines, sanitary sewers and lift stations.

BioJet's powerful surfactant contains bacteria that destroys all grease clinging to the inside walls of pipes, converting them into simple and safe water and carbon dioxide. Once the foam comes into contact with grease, BioJet's microbial action begins immediately. The product then creates a bacterial coating on the surface to suppress future buildup.

Other uses for BioJet include the reducing corrosion, removing foul odors, reducing the need for excessive pumping, preventing sewer overflows, and cutting the number of treatments required to maintain proper flow rates.

BioJet is recommended to provide initial cleaning or line preparation when using BioPlug CS or BioPlug L, and may also be used as part of a routine maintenance program.

BioJet foam is safe for drain lines and waste treatment systems. Contains no free enzymes or caustic/corrosive chemicals. BioJet is safe for the environment.


Halt the build-up of fats, oils and grease in wastewater systems with a simple, labor-free maintenance program using BioPlug. Grease, as well as sugars and starches, are stopped from forming continuously and automatically for 30 days at a time.


BioPlug is available in two unique formulations: BioPlug L for use in lift stations, and BioPlug CS for use in sewer lines. BioPlug products provide time-released bacteria and work without attention for up to 30 days. BioPlug CS is designed for use in sewer lines, suspended from the underside of manhole covers. As it floats it releases bacteria at a rate that matches the flow of water for peak control of fats, oils and grease.

BioPlug contains no enzymes, surfactants or chemicals, making it environmentally friendly. It fully eliminates grease and oils, leaving nothing behind for further treatment, making it the method of choice for municipalities and institutions across the country.
