I bought a product call Zymox today. http://www.lawsonproducts.com/webap...ROSOLS////DRUMMOND+CHEMICALS////SEWER+&+DRAIN

I filled a section of 1 1/2 ABS with a mix of Lard, Margarine and Dish soap. I cleared a small hole through it and poured through the recomended mix. It says to let the pipe sit for 6 hours before using again. I just now checked it after about 7 hours. There is still sludge in the line of course, but it has really made a difference in there. It really does seem to work. Time will tell for sure though, I plan on watching it through the weekend to see just how clean it gets things.

I recently started selling Bio-Clean. I have no doubt it works, both from others who have experimented and from a minor experiment I did myself. I plan to do more, like using a really hard grease-filled pipe to see if it clears it.

I think it works best when you've just cleared a drain and there's less to work with.

You're supposed to put it in just before bed and not use the drain for 6 - 8 hours. They recommend using it for five days, then once a month.

I sold a jar of Bio-Clean to one customer and they swore that the drain (which I had not cleaned) was running better the next morning.

Depending, I would say a good couple of months, and like "new".. won't happen. It itself is a bit slimy, but not bad. It will die without food, which is why you recharge the line once a month.

Bio Clean seems to be the best product out there

:thumbsup:Go to Statewide Supply dot com

Ask for their color photo literature on septics and grease traps

You guys won't believe what you see,,,

Hears the deal though;

You must get your Commercial clients i.e. restuarants to STOP using sanitizers in order for enzyme products to work,,[they'll kill the friendly bacteria]

If the do commit to a program,the stuff works great

The slime you see, is actually a slippery coat of enzyme build up. It's a good thing making it even harder for anything else to stick in the pipe.
I talked with the reps @ Bio-Clean, they said that although the product would not clear salts from a urinal, that once cleaned, if a treatment program were started that it would make it much more difficult for the salts to stick to the urinal or the drain line. Same is true of Bldg drains & sewers. Must not use Bleach, anti- bacterial soap= indescriminant killers of all bacteria both good and evil.:)
