Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by For light clogs not heavy duty I have a plugged drain in my basement and I have no idea what it is plugged with. I have tried to use a hand snake and a grabber to no avail. I thought this gel would shake something loose down in the goose neck of the drain pipe. I followed the instructions to the “T”. I pulled water out of the drain so the gel could get right to work with no dilution by the water. Due to the goose neck I could not get all of the water out. I poured the gel in and let it stand the required length of time as stated in the instructions. After the time was up, I flushed the pipe with water and the plug was still firmly in place in the pipe. Sooo, I did it a second time and a third time but nothing loosened whatever is in the pipe goose neck. I guess if it was hair or soap scum it would blow it open but not knowing what is in the drain, the gel did not work. In all fairness the goose neck will not allow a snake or a grabber to reach what ever is in there, I had high hopes for a liquid product that could make that bend and work on the blockage. It might have, only time will tell, but I did not see one ounce of proof that this opened even a pin hole. Failed to open my drain. April 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works for Me Like many older guys, I’m getting a little thin on top and you can guess where it’s gone – into the shower drain! I recently noticed water pooling in my shower drain, and decided to try to clear it out before it became a catastrophe. I followed the directions for dispensing the Draino, waiting the requisite time (30 min) and pouring a couple gallons of hot water down the drain. Problem solved! Admittedly, I didn't wait until the drain was completely clogged to see if this product would work, but it did a fine job of restoring full flow capacity to my shower drain when used in a preventive manner. Highly recommend this product based on my experience. March 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Took care of my draining problem in a jiffy! I followed the instructions on the bottle exactly (thinking I might have to do more than one application), even to the extent I set the timer for the 30 minutes recommended to let the product work, and I have to say I was totally surprised to find that the impossible clog was taken care of without any problems. This was the easiest de-clog I have ever done, the drain runs absolutely perfectly now and I am very impressed. Just wished it came in a larger size. April 24, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Did nothing I had a blocked bathroom drain that would trickle down after an hour or so. I poured in the whole 42 ounce bottle and waited 2 hours, not the recommended 30 minutes. I followed the directions on the bottle. It did nothing to remove the block. No noticeable improvement whatsoever. The label says this is the Commercial Line product. No wonder plumbers are so busy. The bottle says it's guaranteed or it's free. The only thing I can find online is a PDF refund form that expired a year ago. March 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A great product! This product saves me so much money, time, hassles, phone calls, & online search! It does its magic in 5-10 minutes, and you pour a pot of hot water in. Then, you are done! I can't thank this product enough! I have them in stock all the time! March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The real deal After trying a plunger, a snake and another drain cleaner I gave up hope and thought that I'd have to take the pipe apart. As a last resort I tried Drano Gel and poured the whole bottle into the sink. I left for 10 minutes and came back and it was still sitting there. I gave up hope and went away. 20 minutes later, I came back and the gel was gone, I couldn't believe it! I poured a kettle of boiling down for good measure and the water drained perfectly. I was so excited that I went out and bought 2 other bottles for 2 other slow drains in my house. July 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent! Tub was stopped up for two days. Poured most of the bottle in, 20 minutes later ran the hot water, and nothing happened. A few minutes later, that wonderful gurgling sound and the tub drain was running smoothly! I like a product that works as described. December 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by drain cleaner easy to use but you have to use atleast half the bottle it does work pretty fast for a gel December 14, 2014
