Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bud It works!
Used this product today on bathroom sink as water took 20 minutes to drain out. I only purchased this from Home Depot as it was a money back guarantee and expected to return it as I was skeptical about it doing as advertised. Followed the directions and the blockage was gone. Thanks for an effective product and huge timesaver.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MSquid Worked wonders...
I never bother to write reviews, but I felt I had to do this product justice and let others know that it solved my problem and did so quickly. My bathroom sink was horribly clogged - I'd run the water for 3 seconds and already my sink would start filling up. Poured half of the Drano bottle in and let it sit for an hour vs the 30 minutes in the instructions. Then ran hot water for 2 minutes straight. The foam from the liquid bubbled into the surface and stayed unexpectedly clogged for a while. But after letting that sit for half an hour and running the water again, the clog is now gone. Also love that Drano offers a money-back guarantee and stands behind their product.

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.

I always use this Max for slow moving sinks, but I had a nasty clog in the kitchen sink tonight that I felt would not be fixed with this. I first tried to plunge it, then had one of this $20 compressed air drain openers (wast of money), but either worked. I headed up to the Depot and figured I would get the only thing that has ever worked for me....this. poured the whole bottle in the sink that had about 5" of standing water in it, and within 20 minutes, it was gone. I always knew this was good stuff, but I really can't believe it took down that clog with that much water in the sink. Best stuff on the market!

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Arthur It worked great for my slow draining bathtub
I'm normally skeptical with chemical products like this. I grew up in a house where stuff like this was laughed at, promptly followed by my dad swearing up a storm as he spent a Saturday pushing a snake through the drain to clear the accumulations of showering from 5 people and 1 dog.
Just having bought a home and gifted with a slow draining bathtub from the previous owner, I felt the snake was in my destiny until I read the reviews for this product and decided to give it a try. My tub was slow draining, so I let the water run extra hot, filled it with an inch or two of water, then poured half the 42oz bottle into the drain. The water slowly drained, and I had feelings that I'd be using that snake. So, I waited 30 mins. Came back, and rinsed for about a minute with extra hot water. I decided that I'd repeat with the half that was left over. I did the same, and rinsed. I noticed the water seemed to be flowing better, but decided to hold back my joy until my shower this morning so I could tell for sure if there was a difference. This stuff worked great. The drain barely lets any water accumulate in the tub. looking forward to buying another bottle for my inherited slow draining bathroom sink. For the price of this product versus the alternatives, don't skimp and try to get away using half the bottle here and half the bottle there. Do two treatments on your problem. Problem solved and I can relax with the upcoming holidays and not be in the tub fishing a snake thru the drain.
