    Default Why Can't I Put Drano in The Toilet??

    There are chunks of pineapple clogging my toilet.

    Never mind why.

    I believe the clog is actually in the pipe, but i can't get the snake there and i'd rather not have to take the toilet off.
    You can flush it, and it drains almost completley in an hour or so.

    So why does the Drano can say "don't put in toilet?"

    Is there something else i could use that would break up pineapple easy?

    Why can't you use the snake? Have you tried a plunger?

    I believe it's the porcelain. I have used industrial strength cleaners and some of them say to not let it sit too long in the toilet, because it may crack the porcelain.

    I would assume it has to do with chemicals in drano and they don't want it blowing back and splashing you in the face as you watch it bubble or forgeting about it and it splashing your ass with caustic water.

    could also be because people put bleach down toilets and mix that with drano and you'd have a pretty nasty case of chlorine gas and some death!...just a guess
    personally i'd try a high preassure hose...but i'm not very sutble!

    Ok, how long would be to long?

    See i'm thinking if i was to add the drain cleaner to the toilet now while it's more or less empty, then flush it, and then it would drain with in an hour or so it might be ok.

    Plus i don't imagine i need to use alot, it's pineapple, shouldn't that deteriorate fairly easily?

    C'mon, Duke. REALLY?!?

    This IS the Links...we GOTTA know. Pineapple in and of itself isn't the question. We're all sitting here thinking, "HOW MUCH pineapple does it take to back up a sewer line?"

    I don't think mixing those chemicals with human waste is smart. I mean with the methane gas and everything...do you remember in Christmas Story when Cousin Eddy lights of the sewer?!? Yes, I know that's a movie, but there's a lot of weird shit in your pipes...

    Just call RotoRooter and be done with it.

    but doesn't toilet water and bath tub water end up in the same place?
    And it's ok to use drano in the tub.

    This is a tough decision.

    Generally speaking, Drano is only an issue with septic tanks. If you have city sewage, it should not be an issue, but it won' help much either.

    Try the plunger and continue with a snake.

    I'll keep at it with the plunger.
    I was just reading that dish soap followed shortly by hot water is good as well.

    With toilets, fluids (other than plunger (air)) or chemicals rarely open a blockage. If you called a plumber, they would use a snake. You'll get it.
