In response to Re: Roots in the drain pipe
You would have to kill the roots outside the pipe to do any good, and there is no good way to do that. Removing the tree is not a solution, since the roots will still grow for 20 years as long as there is a water supply. Since the roots have already invaded the pipe, the best, and only long term, solution is to replace the pipe.

: I have already spent a fortune to clean up the roots which cause clog every year. Does anyone know a good chemical to stop roots invading the inside the drain pipe? We are in the 21st century and I believe (hope) that there is something to cure the problem. or is removing the tree the only solution here??
