MY KITCHEN SINK IS CLOGGED, CAN I USE DRANO?
Kitchen sinks tend to block due to food or residue that are placed down the drain. Homes with garbage disposals increase the risk of a blocked drains.
Drano is good for most of the PVC pipe, when they are not used often. We recommend that if your kitchen sink is completely blocked, without any signs of the water level dropping, DO NOT to use Drano. In most cases, if Drano is placed within a clogged pipe, the chemicals will burn the seals of your pipe causeing water damages.
