Now don't get me started on Al u min num
"rowt". its a "rowt"er not a "root"er
Route = root
Rout (as in "a disorganised retreat") = rowt
And router = rowter.
To me anyway.
(<-- australian btw)
To be perfectly honest, I say both and it depends on who I am around lol. Root when I respect the people I am with or giving a speech, Rowt with a more comfortable atmosphere.
I do both, depending on who I am talking to.
And thus I give you: MALE contraception!
To the few people that say Americans pronounce it rowt, I have to disagree. I was born & raised here, so was everybody I know sans like 4 people. We all pronounce it root. Every single one of us. Though, we all pronounce router as rowter. It's kinda funny.

I say it 'rowt', but it seems that both are perfectly acceptable.
But it's fading away from my mind
There's another "me" waiting behind
"we are en-root to-"
"the best rowt is-"
Both of them are used and are very popular, but if any of you call something a "rooter" or say you're "rerooting" to me in person, I am going to laugh at you.
“Root”. Haven’t ever heard anyone say “Rowt”.
