A month ago we had a slow drain in the shower which leaked water through the wall onto the LR floor and out from under the vanity. Plumber snaked out the roof vent and said to use single ply toilet paper. Now, a month later, the drain is slow and is leaking out from the wall again. I even used caustic professional pipe cleaner as was suggested by the plumber (m. acid) to no avail. Could it be toilet paper clogging up my vent stack? Kitchen and master bath are fine.
Drano and other brands say do not use in toilet, can this precaution be ignored if I drain the water in the tank and shut off the toilet valve? Thank you
A lot of liquid drain cleaners/uncloggers (like Drano or Liquid Plumber) specifically advise against using in toilets. I found two that don’t have any prohibitions against using in a toilet on the label, and state that they are “safe for plastic and metal pipes”. Does that mean that they can be used in a toilet?
