I have 1 toilet and maybe 3 sinks that needs some assistance getting un-clogged.
What I'm not sure about is, using a Drano type product.
What if the Drano doesn't work ? Then the person using the snake or unbolting pipes, has to deal with not only sewage, but sewage with Lye (or acid) mixed in.
That seems like a real bad situation for whoever has to face it.
I asked a guy at the gym and we talked and agreed, I could always wear a welding mask if I have to work on the drain when it has a caustic substance mixed in. Safety glasses always fog up on me.
They sell dilute Drano type products at the $ store.
Do any IC Mag members with experience fixing plumbing problems have strong feelings about using Caustic substances like Drano ?
Good to use, bad to use, favorite product, any guidance would be appreciated.
You guys are my front line for home improvement !
I'm trying to not call a plumber, but if I do call a plumber I would rather not hand them a sh-t situation with difficult substances involved.
I admit I'm being kind of generic when I say "Drano". Reading the labels, most of them are alkaline, and a few are acidic.
