I usually remove the urinal, scrape out the uric acid, and clean the lines with a cable. I never have trusted chemical cleaners.
It gets diluted when you flush it out, it's more for the crystals in the porcelain trap.

If u use sizzle. It needs time to work. Cover flush valve with bag the fumes will tarnish it. Then plunge out all the water u can pour half a bottle in the trap. Cover with bag that will prevent the fumes from filling the restroom. Let sit a few hours. Over nite is best.

I've had better luck by pulling off of wall, snaking out drain and placing urinal in a nearby mop sink and "boiling" out the urinal trap way using Calci-solve

Works the best for me. Then you can shake the urinal and find the loose change in it.

I wouldn't argue the best way is to remove the urinal, I only do about 1 or 2 a year for a regular client of mine who has one in his office. It is the kind that go all the way to the floor and is embedded in tile, removal is not an option. Again, I am a resi service guy so..... I'll shut up now.
