    Hi Guys,

    What would you recommend as the best/ favourite drain cleaner for clearing domestic drains and is it a different one for commercial ones?

    I know that a snake is probably the first item to go to but what really gets rid of fat, soap and/or hair (gag) from slow draining systems?

    Thanks and Regards

    I always advise soda crystals and use them myself at home. Follow the instructions on the pack - i.e. make a solution, don't put them down dry.

    I like one shot but it's so strong and could cause serious damage to pipe systems or skin.

    One shot but beware its acid based and turns chrome black but shifts a blockage
