Damsall in distress?


When I do an orientation, I refer to my coworkers and peers as my 'work family'.

In many ways, they are very much a type of family to me. I see them 40 hours a week, which ends up being more than I see my own family.

I vent to them when I am angry and I listen to them when they need to talk....

We look out for each other.

So, it was no surprise to me when I asked one of my coworkers which type of drain cleaner worked the best... And ended up with about 10 coworkers all scrutinizing my clogged drain and offering assistance and advice to get it cleared.

Now, I am no shrinking violet and I have been on my own for a long time now... I have taken care of a clog before...

But it did make me chuckle to see such concern over a clogged drain.

Just like a regular family, everyone had their own suggestion on how I should handle the situation. And, just like my own family, I ignored it all and did what I wanted to do anyway.

When it was all said and done, I still didn't get an answer to my original question.

Which drain cleaner worked the best?

Happy Monday!

    Quoting GhostofH:
    I agree with Drano Gel. Used it many a time myself always with great success. However IF it is hair that is clogging the drain, it's always best to try and remove as much as you can as it is usually just clogged at the trap area. Just my two cents....
It was definitely a hair clog... I tried to get as much out as I could, which usually works. If all else fails... I can usually just call the complex handiman. I try not to whenever possible as I find him sketchy.

    hoping the Damsall found the answer and did it work?
I used Liquid Plumber, it worked like a charm!

    I like the Drano Gel pour it in , let set for 15 min and flush it with a kettle of boiling water.I have found it will get almost anything out and the boiling water does a fine job of rinsing the crud away.
    Just another thought for you to file away with the work family's

    Have a good day, be safe..

QUOTING: I hadn't heard the dish soap one... would that work on a hair clog? Good to know for the future, just in case.

for about a dollars worth of soap,
its worth a try before you use force or chemicals.
lubrication seep into it might loosen it.

but if you have an in-drain stopper mechanism
and its wrapped around that, maybe not.

    ive always wondered why they dont sell the crystals anymore. I think the brand was Drano....a small can of crystals. That was always reliable....you could hear them fizz up and crackle n pop in the drain. No longer anywhere. I just use the gel Drano now...
    glad u got ur solution Ms Damsel ~~
Now that you mention it... I remember those crystals. It seemed like they were under every sink and in every basement when I was a kid growing up. You're right, didn't see them yesterday when I was trying to decide what to get.

    like CharlesD6996 says,
    depends a lot where and what the clog is.


    a simple and safe way to start
    is a HUGE squirt of dish soap (like half a small bottle!)
    and some time.
    sometimes the extra lube will do the trick,
    if not, then move on to something else,
    like the baking soda/vinegar one.

    worth a try before going to harsher chemicals.

    if youre plunging, make sure you have the right type of plunger.
    theres the flange type made especially for toilets.
    and the flat type made specifically for sinks.

    Cutious, why do you ask them, if you just "ignore it all and do what you want to do anyway"? Just curious, not trying irtitate.
I asked one person what product I should buy, Liquid Plumber or Drano. Not how to snake my drain, how to take it apart, or how to install a hair trap. I can call a handyman for all that.

    Old but reliable one is pour baking soda in first followed by vinegar. The soda fizzes and creates a pressure to push the clog.
I will try this if it ever happens again.

    I like Drano. I hate my work family, they make me want to run away.
My last job was like that, they were a bunch of selfish shit heads. I got called to cover some kind of shift on nearly every day off I had. They would get pissed if I said no, I had plans.

    Well, I guess it depends on where the clog is and what you think it might be? If it is a hair clog in the bathroom (sink or shower) you may be better off snaking it than using drain cleaner. For a grease clog, I use Drano Max Gel. It will work on hair clogs too.
Hair clog in my tub.... Got it out with Liquid Plumber because it was cheapest. I could have called the handy man to do it, but he creeps me out and don't want him in my apartment alone.
