In response to Re: hj - toilet clogged with roots - another question
That is hard to say, although the roots seem to have a sixth sense when it comes to water, and might be able to penetrate it also.

: : Not likely since I have had the problem with drains that were cemented into the floor during construction. The roots are very persistent.

: : : hj,

: : : Do you think that sealing the toilet flange to the concrete floor would prevent the roots from entering the drain?

: : : I've been thinking that after I flood the area with root killer and do a good clean-up that sealing the flange to the concrete would work.
: : Just not sure what to seal with. Would it have to be flexible, like a silicone or can it be hard like epoxy?

: : : What do you think?

: : : Thanks,
: : : Greg

: Last question: Do you think the UltraSeal would prevent the roots from getting in? Should be better than the wax seal - I think.
