The use of Zep Crystal Heat Drain Opener for anything other than a drain opener is NOT recommended. The combination of ingredients used in this product could cause serious damage if used directly on the skin.

Answer: 
If you're serious about doing this, you must not. Read the directions. Think about it for a second; if you're thinking about leaving your house for 24 hours, how safe can it be?

2 lb. Crystal Heat Drain Opener is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Melted pipe Poured it in bathroom sink let sit for 5 minutes and ran water through it for a few minutes after. A couple of days later I realize I had a hole burned through the s-trap and water had just been draining on the towels under the sink. Had a huge mess to clean up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleared a clog nothing else could! I had a nasty clog in a pipe in my basement that of course drained my laundry tub and kitchen sink out to the rest of the drains in the house. We have been trying everything for almost 2 months and nothing worked, not even a 25' snake. I was just about to give in and call a plumber (sick of doing dishes in the tub and laundry at a family member's house) when we tried Crystal Heat. It smoked and fizzed and took multiple applications to get to the clog so far down the pipe, but it worked! We were shocked to run water this morning to check and not have it back up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best way to clear a drain. I'm going back a few years, but there was a product called Red Devil Lye that was available at the grocery store. It was very inexpensive and did a great job. Well, I heard that Lye (Sodium Hydroxide NaOH), is used to make illegal drugs, so Red Devil Lye is no longer on grocers shelves. I was glad to find Crystal Heat at Home Depot. I read the label and yes, this is NaOH. My tenant had a clogged drain, so I did my usual routine. First, I open the window. If possible, I run hot water down the drain (if it's slow) and get the pipes nice and hot. I then pour the drain cleaner in - about a couple teaspoons, but I don't measure. I then leave the room and close the door. 10-15 minutes later, I come back in and listen to the drain. If it's still hissing and smoking, I leave for another 10-15 minutes. When there is no more noise, I run hot water down the drain and see if it cleared. If it's still clogged, I repeat. Normally, it takes about 2-3 tries and I usually do one extra to make sure the drains are really clean. Note that the directions on the container say to run cold water, not hot. If you use my method, NEVER look down the drain and after dumping the cleaner down the drain, get out of the room. You can also leave a plastic margarine tub cover over the drain. This is caustic chemicals, so you need to use extreme caution.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the old days I used these crystals in the amount recommended in a plastic trap pipe under the kitchen sink, same one I always have to snake clear. In the past I have held a flashlight to the backside and it would be dark so I know that it was all greased and gooey , I would use a small snake like tool and flush a couple of gallons of boiled water down. BUT This chemical heated like boiling water and lasted ten+ minutes until I flushed it down with boiling water again, flashlight allowed the trap to be translucent (clean), It loosened or ate all the sludge away from the pipe walls. YES cover the drain when it is working, do not shake canister first, do not use eating silverware to measure and pour, do not make powder dust so keep it close to your work and open two windows a crack on opposite ends of the room for the fumes. This reminds me of the old Draino crystal’s in the shake can (years ago) Well 30 more use’s should last years for this retail price. DO NOT BREATHE any of this. 4 Stars

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great and fast! We've tried Draino and other products with poor results. This stuff opens the drains quick. You can even hear it as soon as you pour it in.
