Liquid plumber recommendations

Recommended Posts

The shower is the worst place to use chemicals. If you have a traditional tub, you might have to get rid of the whole thing with all the damage it can cause. They are generally assembled with dissimilar metals such as bronze or brass and steel controls. Go in your basement and take a look. And they are soldered together. If it fails, every thing you see connected to your tub is gone. The drain, the connection to the drain line, the tub control, all the shit behind it, all gone. Snake it.

Trying the good old snake method, it's a pain in the ass but what isn't. First go round I got nothing, second I got a little crap, I need to do it a third time. The snake will not go any farther to I tighten the cable and start cranking it and pushing forward which helps get it going, but I have to go down farther. I must of atleast gone down 15' and got nothing major.

Very unusual for a shower/tub drain to be 15 feet long, usually it's a couple feet from the drain to the 3 inch waste stack. I usually tie the tub into the 3" right before the toilet to wet vent the toilet with the tub vent. I know you probably have no idea what I'm saying lol. Mark your snake with a piece of tape when you get it all the way in. The pull it out of the drain without pushing it back into the drum so you can measure it. You may think you're feeding out 15 feet but maybe not actually happening. If you're close to me I will loan you my power auger with auto feed. It's like a FA Daniel Defense AR of power snakes lol. I never use it anymore because I despise drain cleaning with a passion. I would rather go on food stamps before snaking drains for a living...

I have a septic tank so I steer away from harsh chemicals I had a clogged drain and poured a box of baking soda in then half bottle of vinegar and then held the plunger over the open drain hole to make a tight seal and it worked!

Acidic chemical drain cleaners don't harm septic tank bacteria. But bleach, and anti bacterial soaps do.

Thanks deerslayer that's unfortunate because I work in the Healthcare field and strictly use antibacterial soap! Guess I'm gonna have to switch it up thanks for the tip!

Well I work in the Plumbing heating and AC field. I do wear gloves while touching existing plumbing waste piping, but there have been times I've gotten covered in people piss and shit before. I use antibacterial wipes in those situations. Good alternative to antibacterial soap down your drains. I'm exposed to so many microbes every day I'm probably immune to a lot of things. I haven't been sick in years, can't remember the last time I had a cold or the flu actually...

    • Looks like the insider billionaires and others selling back in November-December timed it perfectly.
    • This market makes no sense, even before the recent volatility. Up is down, left is right, black is white, dogs are cats. I follow the market and the business news every day, and it's totally nuts. It makes my head hurt. Since there apparently isn't going to be any additional "injections" by Uncle Sugar, which kept the market propped up the past two years, the sugar high has burned off.... you know what happens after that....
    • This is a brand new, never used or installed set of high-quality  Wood AK stocks for Milled receivers finished in Ishmash Red. It is not refinished wood.  In addition to 7.62  it will also fit milled receivers for 5.56AK.  It is not designed for stamped receivers. It comes with new screws that you will use, if you are upgrading for a polymer-type stock set, do not use those screws.  It is fabricated to the look of  Soviet classic wood furniture circa 1960's and designed to fit milled receivers. It will fit older as well as new milled receivers, for example,  it will fit any Arsenal Style Milled receiver. It is possible that very minor fitting with a file may be required depending on your receiver. Note: Finish on all stock pieces absolutely matches. Due to lighting and camera angle it may not appear so in every picture, but they match. Free Ship. $375 First I will take it and also PM me wins Zelle, Money Order of Check Steve
    • Things could get fugly soon.  Especially if Russia decides to have a "minor incursion" into Ukraine sometime soon. Fasten your seat belts.  We may be in for some turbulence ahead.
    • Defense Distributed at it again. You have another opportunity to build your own. Enter the Ghost Gunner 3 The Ghost Gunner 3 is a 3 Axis CNC machine that can take a metal block and create a lower receiver in a relatively short period. You can then assemble that lower into a completed firearm without it being registered.  Since the only part needed to create these homemade firearms is a block of metal (pictured below), it would be entirely impossible for the ATF to regulate these without an act of congress.  While the anti-gun politicians pat themselves on the back for "stopping the proliferation of privately made firearms," Defense Distributed was hard at work crafting a tool that empowers citizens to expand their 2nd amendment rights and makes regulation irrelevant.  I was ecstatic to see the Ghost Gunner 3 here at SHOT Show in Las Vegas this week, and I'm excited to see what Defense Distributed does next.  https://www.zerohedge.com/political/impossible-regulate-ghost-gunner-introduces-new-0-receiver
