Drain cleaners dissolve hair, grease and maybe vegatable peels. They aren't magic. They won't clear roots that have worked their way in.

I'm thinking along the lines of 'get off the whiskey'.

Somehow, I'm think that strong, black coffee might do more good. :-)

Plain ol' Red Devil Lye works as well as anything.

I think Costa Rica comes next. That will give you all a break from my vanities.

As bugs go, CR wins a prize. Their bugs a not all that small.

I've had great luck with the compressed freon in a can (Power Plumber).

Wonder how it gets past the greeny weeny's.

Actually, Freon's in lots of products these days.

Even those inhalers all the weezers suck on.

Very weird.

If we don't hear a story about the dog very soon, I'm gonna be a little curious as to JUST WHAT is clogging that drain.

I recently had a clogged bathroom sink. I used Liquid Plumber. Worked great.

A gallon of boiling water works but is a little dangerous to carry around and tends to splash. Swimming pool acid works great but is hard to find now. The Works (you might have to search for it) uses hydrochloric acid and works well on clogs that have come back again and again.

Does Costa Rica have an extradition treaty with the U.S.?

The dog has decided that he owns the house, the cars, me, and everything else.

He may be right about that.

I think the U.S. has to waive capital punishment. ;)

Please tell me you don't own property there.

I recently used one of the foaming ones in my tub (I can't remember if it was Liquid Plumber or Drano brand, I think it came in a copper-colored bottle) and it worked great.
