Yes I would use it for any home new or old plastic pipes no consers at all.
Metal pipes you need to check for seeps or leeks at the joints.

I don't know but would guess that your discharge line(s) are possibly PVC (which is what mine are) and it worked great for me. I had a blockage in my bathroom sink (behind the wall). After application and letting it sit for a full day (at least 24 hours) so that it had plenty of time to chemically reduce and break down the blockage, it did the job and the drain works as well as it did when it was new.

Incidentally, this was in the master bath; we also have a powder room downstairs and two full baths upstairs... a total of 7 sinks of which mine in the master was the only clog. Suggest you use a double dose and let it sit (work) for at least a full day as I did. Otherwise you'll literally just be dumping money down the drain. Read Less

Yes our Hair & Grease formula will work on your home. Sometimes older homes with cast iron pipes will have some corrosion in the pipes and the "gunk" could be holding the pipe together. Our product should get rid of the "gunk", and this could cause some leaks in your pipes. You might try a cup or two in one drain and see how it does, before using on the second drain.

Answer: 
Our house was built around the same time (late 60s) and we did not have any problem with this product. The active ingredient, sodium hydroxide, is very harmful to animals and plants, and may damage glass but has little effect on plastic and no effect on iron pipes.

Answer: 
use a snake first - chemical removers can be dangerous to use or snake the pipe while still full of drain cleaner. I always prefer to use mechanical means first - for hair , I like the the zip rods

I did not have to use a snake after using this product. My bathtub was clogged with hair and one cup did the trick. I did allow it to work for about 10 hours and then used very hot water (tea kettle amount) after using it.

Answer: 
Yes, I had a tough hair clog in my bathtub and it cleared the clog. When I tried to snake beforehand, nothing would come up (guess the clog was too far down), but there wasn't a need to snake after either. I used it at night around 11pm and at 6am flushed it with hot water. Tub is like new again.

Answer: 
No it only breaks down small particles of hair. If your drain is clumped with a year long amount of hair it must be removed by snaking the drain.

Answer: 
No it will not. But if take your time and follow the directions and pour at least 2 applications of this product it will work. YOU MUST USE BOILING HOT WATER TO FLUSH OUT THE DRAIN.
This is all I use now to maintain my drain system and it works me.

Answer: 
No, it is not a quick-acting "minutes" declogger (unless you have a very minor clog) - generally needs to sit for at least several hours up to overnight. It is, however, a FANTASTIC and EFFECTIVE declogger. I highly recommend this product, just be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions to the letter and allow it time to work its magic.

Answer: 
Hair & Grease Drain Opener is safe to use in a bathtub drain and a sink drain. It should not stain the tub or sink because the product should be left in the drain not in standing water. If you are worried about discoloration, you can put a light layer of Vaseline on any areas of concern before you use the drain opener.

Remove any standing water before using so that you can pour it directly into the drain, don't overfill or pour too quickly so you don't get a backup from the drain into the tub or sink.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 241 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Happy I wish I had bought this a year and a half ago when I first started having plumbing issues...I live in an upstairs apartment...my tub takes an hour to drain after a ten minute shower...much better then the 6 hours I had to wait at one time...my bathroom sink fills up when you wash your hands...that is only 2 minutes and takes 30 minutes to drain...the toilet backs up and drains extremely slow...and then the bowl never fills up once the waste goes down....after one day of use...nothing goes down the toilet that does not belong...we even make sure the lid is down to insure nothing accidentally falls in...we have to plunger the toilet everyday....it only takes one quick plunge without much strength to get it flowing...it's happening on a daily basis...I have used industrial strength and brand name everything even products for septic tanks...in the sinks and tub and even the toilets and put a hair catcher in the tub...and even made sure that any grease or oil from cooking is poured into glass jars and the pans wiped out with paper towel and put into the trash...even have cute little duck debris catchers on both sides of the kitchen sink...and yet I still have drain issues....I bought three bottles of the hair and grease drain opener...so if it worked I could give one to my sister and the other for myself since I live in an apartment...you never know how other people live or take care of their plumbing...I poured 3 cups in each drain...let it sit for an hour and rain hot water in each sink and tub at the same time for 15 minutes...and the tub which usually fills up half way up your ankles in 10 minutes...didn't fill up...whatever water did collect drained in a matter of 2 minutes or less...I'm still going to use my hair catcher in the tub and debris catcher in my kitchen sink....but this stuff definitely made a HUGE difference...you can't use it in the toilet...however, clearing the other drains I'm hoping will help prevent toilet issues...now that I have it working properly again...I would definitley recommend this product....don't waste your money on plumbers until you have tried this drain opener...a plumber is two hundred and up...and usually plumbing problems occur during the after hours when plumber rates are double...better to spend ten dollars on one bottle...then if you need to, then call a plumber... July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Was sceptical, now a believer! Had a slow draining tub that I couldn't plunge or snake anymore. Was ready to give in and call the plumber when saw all the reviews for this stuff. I've never seen draino or liquid plumber work, but this said money back guaranteed,so i said what the heck. Nine hours later I pour a pot of boiling water down the drain ready for it to back up. Went right down! Simply amazed! Worth every penny... July 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by THIS STUFF WORKS! 100% Recommended, my tub was clogged, everytime we took a shower it will get half way filled up with water, and we had to wait at least half hour for it to go down... I poured some of this magic stuff in...waited like 3 hours....boiled some hot water, threw it in... and wala! done deal. July 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible Waste of Money This did not work AT ALL! It promises to get through any grease clog. Not only did this stuff not fix my kitchen sink drain, it made it 10x worse. Spend a little more and get something that will actually deliver on it's guarantee, or else you run the risk of being in my shoes, and have to spend hundreds of dollars on a plumber. July 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great product Bath room sink drained VERY slow, saw all the positive reviews for this product and thought what the heck I'll try it and boy am I glad I did. Poured it in the drain and waited two hours, poured hot water in and like magic drain was open July 11, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It works! this product is amazing. We had a terrible clog in our bathroom shower you would have to turn off the water in the middle of the shower to let the water go down.
