~ clogged drain ~

13 April 2002

ari and i went out, had dinner, bought 4 Gundam DVDs and Liquid Plumber for my totally-clogged bathtub drain.

what do you use for clogged drain? Drano? Liquid Plumber? i tried both, many times…. Drano used to work like magic, but this time, i can’t get my bathtub drain unclogged with it. 3 bottles of Drano in a month and the level of water stays the same. this time, i’m getting the 2 bottles of Liquid Plumber which i plan to use all this weekend. according to their commercial, they’re “thougher than Drano”.

if this doesn’t work either, i think i have to get a Real Plumber.

update at midnight: 1 bottle is gone (it’s 2 usage). the water flow is as slow was it was a day before.

hope your drain is flowing now… if not, try this advice from my plumber:
first pour half a bottle of Drano, let it sit for two hours. then pour approx one liter of hot boiling water (volume of a water kettle). careful please! wait ten minutes. hopefully that will solve the problem.

good luck!

your site is neat! i’m gonna look around more now!

just stumbled upon this site while searching the Net for advice about unclogging drains, of all things. my girlfriend’s shower drain is slow, even after a full bottle of ‘professional strengh’ drano. I saw that tip from April 2002 about following up the drain cleanser with a liter of boiling water, which seemed to work well for you initially… is that still working?

oops, i’m about 5 months late on the reply, no? oh well. but anyway, yes, it still works wonderfully. lucy rocks :)
