Is Zep Drain Care safe to use in a dishwasher to improve its drainage?

Made the mistake of using dishwashing liquid in my dishwasher. Didn't realize then that over time it thickens and clogs openings. Need some enzyme to eliminate it now.
Asked by: Doug
Zep Drain Care is not recommended for use inside a dishwasher drain.

Is Zep Drain Care safe to use on plumbing that includes a rubber boot?

The rubber boot is a coupler between PVC pipe and a metal pipe in the wall. Hose clamps seal each end of it. If it is not safe to use on rubber, then what do you recommend that I use instead?
Asked by: Doug
Zep Drain Care is a bacteria/enzyme based formulation. There is nothing in the product that would cause damage to rubber or PVC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stuff ever I have used this in my toilet, kitchen sink, and tub and it is the only stuff that unclogs every time. I kind of lucky I guess because all my pipes are connected which means if my toilet is completely clogged I can pour this down my sink and it comes up into my toilet so it always reaches the clog. I have to use whole container though and leave it for a day or two, and they don't have it at Walmart. Better than Rotor Router gel drain opener, Drano buildup remover, Lep professional strenth drain open, Rid-x, Roebic emergency care, plunger, and snake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ZEP DrainCare Liquid Build-up This is a great product. My toilet bowls never-ever clogged. In the directions - it says "Do not use for 6 Hours after pouring the powder and repeat the process for 3 days" but I use it just 1 day and leave it for 24 Hrs - it really does the magic. ThankYou for such a wonderful cleaning product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Amazingly - for the right issues It all depends upon the cause of the issue, folks. If you have roots or other things causing 'slowness' then there are other Zep products for those. Best of luck!! Here is our experience: We moved into a home in DC about three years, ago, (city water and sewer) and the previous owners had coat hangers and plungers near every drain. After trying numerous things, we found this and, will be darned if it does not work like magic. Every 4-6 months, we treat the beginning-to-slow drains and they move to 100%. Not sure, exactly, the issue, but we keep hair and other debris from the lines, and this stuff keeps things moving, without issue. This is not, really, intended for clogs, and the directions make it clear that you need to remove any hair or other solids, for this product. Home Depot pricing is about half of that on Amazon, so worth it to grab from here.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So-So I've seen little to no results using this. Have used as directed in bathroom, kitchen and basement sinks. Have used over several days (waiting overnight or at least 6 hours before running water), and can't say I see any difference. Water still going down slowly in all sinks.
