  • Drain Maintenance

    Would the regular use of Drain-O, say once a month, be a good idea in the bathroom sink and tub drains? Brass drain and overflow, brass p-trap and copper (yes, copper) DWV.

      Re: Drain Maintenance

      to be blunt NO it is not. it eats at pipes and when you get a problem it will cost you more to have it fixed in the long run. it is also not good for the enviroment as well. i'm NOT a tree hugger.
      that is like saying i know that small wire is rated at only 5 amps max, but every once in a while i will run it at 20 amps. and before you know it...... you know the rest
      the only dumb question is the one that is not asked!

          Funny you should say that.
          Lady says it all the time.
          Maybe I am all that.

                  bleach is much cheaper and will cut the grease, hair and soap.

                    Your copper drains will naturally stay clean as copper is antibacterial.
                    The only thing you have to worry about are your traps getting slow.
                    Run into your basement and flick your copper drain pipes...
                    TINNNNNNNG.Means nice and clean.
                    Hell I saw a copper kitchen sink waste 30' long and flat as a board yesterday.
                    The old codger had been there since the 60's,never a problem with it!

                        Not any older than the neighbors who's pipes are in great condition showing many more years of service.

                        They were put in around 1970.

                        If the homeowner would have addressed the problem like others in his neighborhood and mechanically cleared the line he would have been in a lot better shape.

                        I'm going to see a lot more of these.
