What is the difference between your drain opener and your drain maintainer?
Our drain openers are dual hydroxide caustic blends that are designed to unclog drains by dissolving hair and grease. Our drain maintainers are bio-enzymatic products that are designed to improve slow drains, remove bad smells and pests like fruit flies, and improve functionality of grease traps, septic tanks and holding tank systems.

Drain chemicals can cause severe burns and blindness. Always wear protective safety goggles and long rubber gloves when using and working on drainpipes that remain clogged and contain drain chemicals.
A Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is designed to provide both workers and emergency personnel with the proper procedures for handling or working with a particular substance.
Clogs are caused by build-up clogging material on pipe’s lateral section.
On a regular basis, clean out strainers and stoppers in your bathtub or sink.
Pour grease into a can and toss it in the trash versus pouring it down the drain.
Don’t dump chemicals, such as paint thinner, or materials like hot wax down the drain.
Keep kitchen plumbing clog-free by not putting food particles with stringy or fibrous consistency, such as celery, banana peels and potato skins, down the drain.
Clogs are caused by buildup in the lateral section of the pipe or in the trap. This drain clogging material (hair, soap, grease, and toothpaste) attach to the inside walls of the pipe until the drain is completely clogged. Use a drain opener to remove all drain clogging material so your drain will function properly.
The longer you leave the drain opener in the drain, the more it will dissolve buildup.
For the first application, use 2-4 cups. If this does not clear the clog, use more product.
If possible, leave product in drain overnight and flush with hot water in the morning.
To clear sewer line clogs, add Main Line Cleaner to the closest point between the house and sewer line.
For garbage disposals, add 2 tablespoons of Septic System Treatment weekly to remove odors and keep the drain functioning properly.

“I just wanted to let you know, this stuff (Heavy Duty Drain Opener) really works. I was very skeptical, as other products did not. So, when I saw your 100% guarantee, I bought it, tried and it worked just as said. Thank you so very much!”
