Store bought chemical drain cleaners used chemical reactions to unclog drains. The chemical mixtures in these cleaners give off noxious fumes, which are unpleasant for everyone as well as pets. If one drain cleaner doesn’t work then the easiest step would be to try a different one, right? NO, when using these chemical drain cleaners, mixed chemicals can sometimes cause a cement like reaction. On the other hand if the chemicals being mixed are quick-tempered then that could cause an eruption in your drain. These chemical reactions are also very harsh on your porcelain, stainless steel, and aluminum bathroom fixtures. Some chemical combinations can cause corrosion and sometimes eat through the fixtures. Drain cleaners can also damage PVC, old or corroded pipes as well. This is an instance where a simple clogged drain could end up becoming a huge re-piping/ plumbing job.
