Toilet issues


I'm curios why you can't use regular drain cleaners on your toilet?

Toilet issues


Bad for the pipes, if you have a septic system it will kill the good bacterier that's breaking down the soilds, they almost never unplug a stopage.
It makes it unsafe for anyone having to open up the clean out or snaking the drain to really clean out what ever is stopping the flow.

alot of drain cleaners will remove the glazing off the surface making it rough then paper and solids get stuck...causing a clog.. and damaging the commode...ben sr.....don't use them...
