Our house was built in 1953. The pipes are 64 years old – if there are even pipes still down there! The owner is waiting for his daughter to graduate high school (1 more year) and then will demolish it and rebuild.
Every 5 or 6 months the plumber has to come out and clear the drains, we are getting to that point now. In between when we get a clog I buy whatever brand of drain cleaner is on sale and pour it down. And it ALWAYS works. I pour a bottle down, let it sit over night, run some hot water in the am, clog gone. Well this time Duane said no I couldn’t do it because it doesn’t work. I asked him if I should just call the plumber then and he said he didn’t know. But he couldn’t leave it there, instead he said in front of my parents that I “need to stop waisting money”. I was so mad at him. (He thinks that because I don’t work it’s his money. But that is a WHOLE different blog post … or two).
I poured the the stuff down the drain and guess what it worked. We are clog free.
