    Hey... watch it there! Will never catch me in CA again and it has been 35 years since I was there. But purple is my favorite color, even have a McMillan bench stock that is purple metal flake. My daughter shoots the purple 221 often and refers lovingly to it as the bowling ball with a barrel!

    It is pretty much drain cleaner. Just add Draino to water, and its much cheaper too. Lye, caustic soda, sodium hydroxide....its all the same.

    What is the drain problem and what types of pipe are involved? How old is the system? Septic or city sewer? Slow or stopped? All are need to knows before snaking a line of using a cleaner.

    I had some pretty consistent, with not the time or money to replace, the leaking hydraulic hoses on a tractor. Nothing else worked as well as Purple Power in cleaning the dripped/dropped hydraulic fluid off the blacktop drive and asphalt roadway. I found it to be a marvelous bargain!
    BEST wishes in your application!
