One of the main contributors to Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSO’s) in the U.S. is root infiltration. Roots thrive in the nutrient rich environment of sanitary sewers. These roots enter through pipe joints, service connections, and deficiencies where they cause backups and pipe deterioration. Johnson Service can help you control root problems using the Vaporooter foam chemical system.
Contact herbicide kills roots... not the tree
Root growth inhibitor prevents re-growth
Foam insures treatment of entire pipe expanding into cracks, joints and services.
Foam prevents root growth from inside and outside the pipe.
Vaporooter is placed directly into the sewer main through our hydro-jet truck hose to ensure chemical contact with all roots.
