Many people assume that if an over the counter drain cleaning product is poured down a clogged drain that the drain is safe and unclogged forever. This can be true in some cases, like on a minor clog in the shower. However if you have a large clog in your plumbing system, an over the counter drain cleaning product can be bad. It can also be bad if pour the solution in your toilet or if you have plastic pipes in your home. The cleaning product can eat away at porcelain and plastic, which is something you definitely don’t want happening to your home’s plumbing system!
