They say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, especially when it comes to drain care.

What are the correct instructions for this product? I see multiple different instructions listed...

Asked by RW December 2, 2020

Answer

This is an enzyme to dissolve soap scum. The problem is getting some through the P-trap to work on the pipes. It works slowly, so put in about 4 oz and use just enough water to flush into the pipe. Wait as long as you can, at least overnight and repeat many times until the flow gets better. For faster results, use strong lye or calcium carbonate drain cleaner to loosen the bulk of goop and then use the enzyme for periodic maintenance. If the pipe is really full of goop, you may need to use a metal snake for the first try.

Safe to run through a sump pump?

I suggest you contact the pump manufacturer to respond on this. That is also what the Zep people would likely suggest to you, although you could ask them for a response as well. This questions the effect of chemicals on pump parts and only the two manufacturers could tell you what the chemicals were and what their effect might be.

Will it help declog my washing machine drainage pipe?

Sink it is advertised as a drain cleaner, it should work. You can also try muriatic acid. Just don't breath the fumes or spill it anywhere. And stop the reaction by adding water to wash it down after about 5 minutes.

Does the stopper in the sink need to be removed to pour this into the drain?

Asked by Ann October 6, 2020

Answers

No. It pours just fine. You want to get the enzyme into the pipes beyond the trap to dissolve fat and soap that mats hair.

What happens if you add the drain defense and then don't flush with water?

Probably nothing. But I doubt the instructions want you to do that. If you use muriatic acid instead, you should flush it out with water after 5 minutes. Use caution

I recently purchased some from Home Depot, and the correct instructions on the back have been removed and replaced by two illustrations that tell you the wrong way to use it. The product is supposed to sit for 6 hours, and the instructions now just say to add an ounce of Zep and run warm water. Someone messed up. If you buy this, follow the instructions above, or look for them online. Using this the way they say on the bottle is just pouring money down the drain.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This ZEP 64 oz. Drain Care worked well but it is important to note that it is NOT a clog remover. I used this on on my wife's sink in our master bathroom. She always rinses her hair down the sink which slowly builds up and slows the drain. After running hot water for a couple of minutes, I poured 8 oz. of Drain Care down the drain, then followed that with 16 oz of hot water. It's best if you let it sit for about six hours. I let it sit the entire day while we were at work. The drain now flows with no backup at all. Drain Care works well just remember it's not for clogs but more for maintenance.
