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.

Answer: 
Your question is phrased a little ambiguously - I'm assuming you mean you have washed leaves and grass from the pet bed into a drain, not that you are planning to apply the product TO the pet bed. If it is the latter, do NOT apply this to a pet bed, it would dissolve the bedding and be highly toxic to your pet. I believe it would clear grass and leaves from a drain with no problem, just be sure to follow Read More

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.

My bathroom sink drains slowly; it seems to be partially clogged. Since this would bypass the partially clogged area, will it help drain the water faster?

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 220 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I'm SHOCKED that this actually worked! My bathtub was completely backed up. I was a little weary of using another liquid drainer after a previous product failed miserably, but I didn't want to keep hassling my apt mgr either. So thought I'd ask the Home Depot peeps for their recommendation and came home with this. After manually draining all the water from the tub with a bucket, I carefully poured this product down the drain. I was somewhat concerned that the 2 cups of drain opener would overflow onto my newly refinished tub and ruin the finish and so I slowly poured directly down the drain. I would've stopped before it overflowed out onto the tub, but to my surprise it all poured down. Waited the minimum 1 hour before carefully pouring hot water from the tap down the drain. Again, I poured slowly so that it wouldn't overflow. At first it didn't seem to want to flow, but after a couple minutes, I noticed the water slowly draining. I continued pouring hot tap water and all of a sudden I heard a pop, and the water just drained. SO HAPPY and SHOCKED that this actually worked!! And on the first try too. Now I have the rest of the drain opener for maintenance. I'm gonna tell everybody to use this! It was priced around the same as the other drainers, but definitely worked the best. January 4, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Plumber's secret not so secret. A sewer and drain tech by trade (rhymes with roto-scooter) and I carry this on my truck. No, it will not unstop your toilet. This is for tub, shower and sink drains, I have also used it successfully in reataurant floor drains. It eats away clogs of hair and grease (especially soap buildup). I have 3 daughters and a wife who all have long hair. I put this down our shower drain whenever it starts to slow and have never had to "snake" it in the 10 years we've lived here. Follow the instructions and rinse the drain with hot water before ahowering - it is a caustic chemical that will burn your skin. Thats why it works so well. March 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Finally a liquid product that works I have had a serious backup in my bathtub for some time. Well recently it got to the point where the water drains so slow it takes hours for the backtub to drain. I ended up trying a plunger and only forced the clog 15 feet down the pipe. I tried drano, liquid plumber, and max gels etc with no luck. I purchased a large bottle of this stuff and wow. Finally!!!!! I followed the other steps recommended as follows. With the pipes drained, I poored half the bottle in the drain and let it sit for 2 hours. I then boiled 2 large pots of water and pored them into the tube. This already made the drain 60% better but had some stuff logged. I then pored the rest of the bottle at 10pm and waited 8 hours until i woke up the next morning. Once again I boiled 2 large pots of water and pored it in the drain. BOOM BABY. 100% clog free. Ran the bathtub for like 15 minutes never backed up out of the pipe. This stuff is the real deal.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Did not work for me I had a clogged drain problem in the tube and sink for a bout a week.I bought 2 bottles pore them in both drains left it in overnight as instructed.pored 3 gallons of boiling water and the results were still the the same.clogged drain pipes!what a waste of money!! Im getting my refund!!! May 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Saved us $300+ I'm a contractor and I've been setting a house up to go on the market. Had a slow drain in the upstairs lav. I snaked it and vac'd it, and was ready to go start cutting galvanized pipe in the basement. As a last resort I tried this product. Poured it in, waited an hour, then poured in 3 gallons of hot hot water. Sat for 5 minutes and then boom! All the water rushed through the pipe and haven't had a problem since! Saved me lots of time and money. Highly recommended. April 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yep it worked. Hi. I followed directions by pouring approximately two cups of this stuff in the drain, letting it sit at least an hour (we left it overnight which is mentioned as 'best'), and ran hot water down the drain in the morning. Within seconds of the water turning hot the drain cleared. BTW there is no odor, the product has the consistency of a thickened broth, and the bottle is easy to open. The directions are visible though the font could be a bit bigger. April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing! I tried snaking and a zip it with no luck. I am skeptical of liquid drain openers, but my bathroom sink wouldn't drain at all and 2 cups of this cleared it completely in about 3 seconds. I was about to cut the plumbing under the house and install a cleanout. glad I didn't! March 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Stuff I bought this product and removed clog in just 1 cup of use. Also, Must for any kitchen drain where the cooking left over goes down and does not get cleaned 100%... Using this.. you will keep it clean, bacteria free and oder free... Just use it once or twice a year in all the bathroom and kitchen... April 3, 2016
