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

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.

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

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.

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.

Today I just use this to clean my bathtub drain. When I pour it into the drain, it splashes around the stainless sink circle where sealant is applied to seal the sink. Will it break down the sealant or caulk and cause my bathtub leaking?

Answer: 
Hair and grease drain opener should not damage the sealant or caulking. But if you are worried about it, you can put some vinegar on a paper towel and wipe where Hair and Grease touched. Vinegar neutralizes the active ingredients in the drain opener.

Answer: 
NOT TO MY EXPERIENCE...the stuff DOES what it needs to do and so far it is the BEST drain cleaner we have EVER USED !
A tip too...
FILL YOUR BATHTUB with HOT HOT water after letting the stuff sit in the drain OVERNIGHT and then pull the plug (be sure and STOPPER the DRAIN BEFORE you start to fill the tub with HOT water)...
It also helps to do this without drain cleaner once a month or so...

Answer: 
I don't know if I could answer your question as it all depends on the caulking type and manufacture. However I suggest that when ever something like this happens you rinse with cold water to dilute it and rinse. The caulking might be able to chemically resist this we don't really know until we try but this is best applied right into the drain hole

67.6 oz. Hair and Grease Drain Opener is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 283.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed After trying every single different type of Draino and not getting any results, I opted for something a little more extra strength. After reading all the positive reviews, I decided to give this a try (especially since it was so affordable) and it did not disappoint! I did as the directions instructed, left it sitting overnight and then ran hot water through it. All my hair, dog hair, all the gunk in there was gone and my tub drained immediately! Very pleased with my purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! I had a clogged bathroom sink and NOTHING worked! I used a snake, Draino max gel and pro strength Liquid Plumber... nothing. There was a sink full of standing water, no drainage at all. I bailed the water out and flushed and bailed to get rid of the other chemicals I used this according to directions still standing water. Dumped the rest of the bottle and still nothing after a few hours. I threw a pot of boiling water in the sink and went to bed. This morning the drain is completely clear and the drain works as it never has before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY A SOLUTION THAT WORKS My tub has been clogged and no matter what I tried nothing worked. I went on the home depot website to see if I find something different and came across this product and after reading all the reviews I decided to try it. I poured 2 cups down the drain as per the directions and I let it sit overnight. In the morning I poured boiling hot water in the drain and everything went down smoothly. This product definitely did its job and you can't go wrong with the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works wonders I used on bottle. Half or a little more than half in my sink and less than half in my tub. My tub was really backed up, not my sink. I didn't measure properly and thought I might have to go buy another bottle. I waited a few hours after I poured it in the drain. I then proceeded with hot water running for a while. Worked like a charm. I will definitely buy again and would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Try this first! The lavatory sink was backing up into the bathtub. Some of the plumbing in this house is 90 years old, and access to drain clean-outs is complicated. So before calling the plumber, and after reading the reviews for "Hair and Grease Drain Opener" on homedepot.com, I decided to give this product a try. Following the directions, I wore eye protection and gloves. I had two plastic cups ready to cover the drains. I put two cups of the liquid down the tub and one cup down the lav sink then covered the drains with the plastic cups. There was no odor and no sputtering. I must admit I was skeptical. Directions say to let sit overnight for best results, but I was impatient so after four hours I poured half a kettle of nearly boiling water in each drain. At first, no results. But in about a minute the tub drain started bubbling then whoosh! the water and muck was gone. I followed up with hot water from the tap, and now my drains are better than ever.
