Does caustic soda drain cleaner only really work with drains that are
blocked with fatty deposits or will it work with a drain that is
bathroom and washing machine only ?
I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet and replace a bit of an
80 year old drain from the back of my house as it is developing a
blocking characteristic. I have a feeling the problem lies under the
area where we park our cars and I reckon is due to compression of the
ground over the years which has probably broken one of the couplings,
but I clearly would rather not do it at this time of year and wonder
if a shot of caustic might help. Any comments?
Yes, I've had the rods down it but there's a 90 degree bend without a
rodding eye :>( and the only way to get at it's access cover is to
dig, fortunately not too far down, but I don't want to have to
continue digging !
