The root killers are not a fast acting solution. There are better at stopping the roots from entering the pipe than getting rid of them once they are a problem. You need a plumber with a snake to auger out the roots and clean the pipe. The using the chemicals may, or may not, slow them down.

: Read the positing on slow drain. My situation is very similar. However, House is 55 years old. Last night running dishwasher and washing maching. Water backed up into the two tubs and three toilets. However, the water level in the toilets was higher than in the tubs. This is the second time in 2 weeks. Last time used ZEP Drain Care Enzyme product in concentration recommended for grease traps. Two days later used Root Killer Copper Sulfate Pentahydrate. With a second occurrance of the problem I'm at a loss. I've used the enzyme last night and again today. I did discover there is hair in one tub. 07/31/2003 - 2355
