Liquid drain unclogger questions

Does anyone know if liquid clog removers effective for clogs that are not in a trap but somewhere further in the drain.
Thanks, Alex

the farther away, the less effective because of dilution and pipe size getting bigger. let your sewer cleaning plumber know everything you've poured in there so you don't burn him.

Best $15.00 I ever spent. Have used it a couple of times myself and neighbors borrow it when they have a clogged drain.

    I agree it is a great tool, but I would add that hooking the hose to HOT water will work better than cold. Often grease is the cause of your clogged drain, especially if it is a kitchen drain. What really did the job for me after clearing the drain some using the tool, was to heat about 5 gallons of water to the boiling point and dump it into the partially cleared drain. The hotter water will remain hot by the time it reaches the clog.

Great tool. I've used them for years. They come in different sizes, so the OP should be sure to get the right size.

It works very good. Sometimes the thick one works good. Sometimes the thin one works good. It depends on what you have in the pipe. The crystal one that get very hot doesn't work well in my opinion becasue it doesn't go far.
But you need to ignore the instruction on the bottle. I usually pour the entire 1 gallon bottle to the drain. Flushing my hard-earned cash to the drain literally!!! I wait an hour or so, and then I will find a big pot and boil alot of boiling water, and pour hot boiling water to flush it... maybe 2 or 3 times.
