Which Drain Opener is the Best? Let's Find Out!

  • Published on: 01 July 2019
  • Clogged drains happen at the worst possible times. So, which type of drain opener works best to unclog drains quickly? Will these products cause damage to plumbing? Drano, Liquid Plumr, Lye, Sulfuric Acid (Clobber), Roebic (enzymes/bacteria), Muriatic Acid, and Drain Sticks are put to the test for effectiveness of hair, grease, solids, paper towels, and vegetables. The results are very interesting with certain products working very well on hair and grease while others work better on other types of clogs. Hope you enjoy the video!

    So have I been fucking up by not mixing it with water to start out? Instructions on draino and liquid plumber say to just pour bottle in drain and wait 15 to 30 minutes then apply hot water after to wash out

    Really surprised how well the lye worked against hair. Also, I'm pretty sure the lye against the bacon grease left you with a layer of soap, not grease. 😆

    I haven't clogged a drain in a while but if u have a badly stained toilet bowl some acidic toilet cleaner works great and thats just hydrochloric acid in gel form. It really did great, most of it u barely had to scrub at all. Not a single spot was left and regular cleaner barely did anything.

    Hey project farm I hope you are well. What do you think about engine degreasers. I've had my best luck with purple power. Maybe a test on different surfaces that are under the hood, will it ruin rubber seals... Etc thanks.

    I keep thinking about how sulfuric acid would absolutely eat the natural items then I remember it's not lab grade like I use. Much lower concentration is less affective and a lot slower.Piranha solution would be the best drain cleaner if pipes were made of glass 🤣

    Most sink traps hold very little water. When you put the drain cleaners in by their directions, your resultant solution would likely be very strong. Ex.: drain pipe and trap are about 18"×1.5" so about 1/2 gallon of water. Adding a quart of declogger would result in a 2/1 water to declogger ratio. The lye/bleach cleaners are also heavier than plain water, so even if your sink had a few gallons of water in them, the declogger sinks to the bottom without too much dilution - as you are not supposed to agitate the water and some products recommend bailing excess water from the sink before application. As you stated, NEVER mix the acids with the bases(LYE/BLEACH).Great channel.

    Good video. Although normally when I use drain openers I just fully send it and pour til I fill the pipe. One its stronger and two I'm not gonna use the bottle again . Keep up the good work

    I have always used a lye based product called blue monster drain banger, you can literally hear your pipes boiling when you pour it in. I would like to see it compared to regular lye. It’s quite expensive but available through online supply stores.

    After last week's fish tank cleaner incident, I feel compelled to point out none of these products are approved for clogged eustachian tubes or sinuses.

    Liquid plumer is ment to be poured into a pipe, it doesnt dissolve things, it pushes them down the pipeline. Look up will it clog by vat19.

    I now start out with 1/2 cup baking soda stuffed into the drain (can't be any standing water) then pour 1/2 cup of vinegar into it and cover the drain for about 15 minutes. Then pour a pot of boiling water afterwards. I had to do it twice and I poked around with a chopstick. It worked and I didn't damage our aerobic septic system.

    Your drain opener tests are worthless! These products should not be on the market. Sorry yo say most people think that if a little is good, a lot will be better. They poor a whole bottle down the drain and it eats up the basket strainer, now you have all of this toxic material all over the inside of the sink cabinet and onto the kitchen floor and your drain is still stopped up. They then call a plumber and he smells all of these toxic chemicals and informs the customer that they will now all be charged to replace the snake cable because the chemicals they put down the drain will crystalize the spring steel cable. As a service plumbing contractor for many years, I would tell people safe ways that were usually more effective than chemicals. Many of those that tried my solutions called back and thanked me because it worked. There are stoppages that are so severe that nothing but a snake will solve the problem. Your drain opener test as worthless as tits on a bore hog. Your test have nothing to do with real life drain problems. You do not mention the problems they cause in septic tanks and sewer processing plants. When you made this video, you had your head up your ass!

    Was a little worried for you using the hydrochloride and muriatic acid on that galvanized fitting inside. Very toxic fumes are released since the zinc in the galvanizing reacts violently with the hydrochloride acid. Seemed like small enough amounts to cause no harm though. Love the video as it confirmed everything I’ve always thought about drain cleaners.

    you will never encounter steel pipe for a drain line. all of these are perfectly fine for cast iron. if you have galvanized steel plumbing for your drain, move or redo your plumping. that's why you are getting clogs. do not use clobber if you have a thin, plastic p-trap (not schedule 40) or stainless trap. it will melt right through it. that's why it says "not for home use." it's fine for use with brass and sch. 40 pvc traps.

    Some of these things I knew, from years of experience, but seeing how effective the chemicals were on certain types of clogs was pretty eye opening. Thanks!
