Drain cleaners/openers - any advice or preference?
Posted by Jef on September 14, 2002 at 20:18:00:
After paying a plumber or renting a rodder to clear a drain myself, i've been told it is good to use a drain cleaner (ie, Draino, liquid plumber,etc) ever so often to keep the drains open and clean.

1)It sounds like good advice, does it really work?

2)Any preference of which products to use? (Liquid, crystals, or foam)?

3)How safe are the "industrial strength" products sold at hardware stores?

4) What about home made cleaners ie, bleach followed by hot water, or another one I've heard is baking soda and/or vinegar? (Is this mixture toxic?)

Hope this is not asking too much - thanks. Is there a website that might have the info.? Thanks.
