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!

    I've had excellent luck with lye. Using the whole bottle is the best way to attack the clog.

    My girlfriend's hair is always clogging the shower drain. I use something from Walmart called Instant Power Hair Clog. It's essentially concentrated lye. It works like a charm. I've used it 3 times over the course of the past 2 years.

    I lived in America for six years. I had several clogs. I've lived in Europe for 40 years total. Never had a clog. Never. European toilets and sinks etc have bigger diameter tubes. Perhaps why?

    Just a thought, love the video and your channel btw. Redo the test with a PVC pipe with an endcap secured with PVC cement to see how water tight the piping joints remain.

    No question is the foaming pipe cleaners, i do ever 6 months to keep crap from building up in pipes. Had kitchen remodelled and saw how grease build up in our pipe the diameter of pipe was less .5 inch after build up. Next time cut up the veggies and break outer skin is tough why they grow in dirt. Funny i remember when i was kid they sold something that used air pressure clear clogs.

    We in the UK get caustic soda, major bad stuff for your skin or eyes but put it down your drain mixed with some water, wait half hour and flush through, what ever was there will be gone.

    It would be interesting to see this test performed now with some of the new foaming style drain cleaners. I buy one from eBay that seems to work quite well with tree roots, plus we have used it in a shower drain with amazing results - I poured approximately 1 cup of the granules into a plugged drain (and forgot about it for about 2 hours) and had a clear running drain that is still clear months later.
