Although beware of getting too much, lye can be used to make meth, so it is regulated... don't want to raise any red flags... ;-)
Now a strong word of CAUTION ......this stuff is not for the average DIY guy, this has a STRONG reaction when you first pour some into the drain. Rubber gloves & protective eye wear a MUST, DO NOT take chances with your vision or skin or you may be burned or blinded - SERIOUSLY. Next piece of advice have a giant glob of crumbled up paper toweling ready to shield the violent reaction that happens almost instantly. This is like a a mini volcano erupting and you need to be prepared or you will have a mess on your sink & counter top to deal with. Not looking to put fear into anyone, but this serious stuff that can cause serious harm if your not careful. Also hold your breath as you pour it in and turn your head away as the eruption begins as not to inhale the toxic flumes.
Bottomline, very happy with the product and will use again for sure, just be careful when using it and DO NOT skip any of the cautions (gloves,glasses, ball of paper towels) and you will fine. A plumber would charge 100+ to do what this stuff does for under 10, just be smart and cautious.
Unscrewed my pop up drain with a flat head screw driver and to my horror there was all types of hair and black sludge in there. I had already been running hot water before I unscrewed it so I just start pouring the 1 cup in (after protective gear just in case). It started dissolving a bit and I ran a little hot water as I poured. When it was all done I blasted the hot water in the tub. It drained fairly well but could be better.
This time I poured the remainder but only drizzle hot water enough to hear it sizzling and dropping down into the drain until it was gone. Waited a minute or two then ran the water on all the way hot and when I tell you it looked like a new drain!! The pipes were literally white again. Granted the sides were still gross but anywhere that stuff touched was completely clean.
I ran the shower for about ten minutes and no stoppage occurred. It usually would get backed up within the first couple minutes. This stuff is great and definitely saved a call to a plumber.
Every 6 months or so the drain in the washbasin my wife uses will become clogged with hair. I removed the trap, snake it clean, and its good for another 6 months.
A friend suggested this product, and I was skeptical. I've tried every possible chemical drain cleaner in the past, and I've never had little more success than a slightly improved flow. I always end up having to remove the trap to do a thorough job.
Based on my friends recommendation I gave this a try. I was literally amazed. It works amazingly. As per the instructions, I ran the hot tap for a minute (watching frustratedly as it very slowly drained past the clogged pipes). I added half a cup of this drain opener, and slowly ran the hot tap until the powder had dissolved and flowed in to the lines. I waited a minute, then ran the tap again. I'm not exaggerating, the line was instantly clear.
Forget expensive drain cleaners and foaming drain cleaners. This is what you need. I'll never use anything else.
Oh, and it is safe for septic systems too.

A waste of hard earned money. I can't believe I fell for this crap.
