I've used sulfuric acid to make Nitric Acid. Very serious stuff, a force of nature that doesn't stop for human flesh.
Probably why it is hard to find on a consumer level.
I had a cheap landlord once I called him about a clogged drain, he stopped by and dropped off a qt of sulfuric acid. I did work.
Made me wonder if a person could crack open a car battery and pour the acid in the drain. What would a tweaker do ? lol
If you are have problems all over your house it could be the main house drain. The places I lived that had drain problems all had main septic line problems, both had tree roots that had grown in the main septic line.
When the water drains slower it has more time to settle and become clogged.
Normal places I just end up running the snake down the shower once every couple of years, I usually find a collection of long female hair.
