Application Process:
In order to have the most effective application of Roto-Rooter® Waste Digestant, it is important to have the drain lines clear of any waste or debris. In the case of septic drain fields, all lines leading to and throughout the field must be open and free-flowing. The fastest and most complete results are obtained when the product can enter the soil pores quickly and evenly. Therefore, any solid blockage in the drain lines would greatly reduce the short-term effectiveness of the product. The most effective way to remove blockages from all drain field lines is to use water jetting. Roto-Rooter® Waste Digestant in dry form must first be activated by mixing approximately one pound with one gallon of warm water(55°F to 85°F). Allow the mixture to stand for at least 30 minutes, but not more than four hours, before application. It is not important that the product be completely dissolved. The mixture should be stirred frequently. Roto-Rooter® Waste Digestant can be applied under pressure or by pouring the mixture directly into the drain field lines or cesspool system.
