Sewer-Heat is a high heat activated alkaline sewer line and drain opener

Fats, oils, and grease (FOG) from households, restaurants, food processing plants, and other grease generating establishments build up in sewer lines, leading to significant problems including backups, sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs), foul odors, and higher maintenance costs.

When Sewer-Heat is added to water in drain or sewer, it rapidly releases large amounts of heat and turbulence to liquefy, dissolve and loosen organic matter and other materials that clog drains and sewer lines.

    • Add 3 cups of cold water to the drain immediately.

    • If water boils out of drain, immediately add another cup of COLD water

    • After 10 minutes, flush the drain with plenty of cold water.

    Small Drains

    Follow the procedure above, but decrease the dosage to 2 tablespoons (1 scoop) and immediately add 1 cup of COLD water.

    Use of this drain opener generates considerable heat which may cause eruption of hazardous liquid contents. NEVER use a plunger with this product. Add slowly to the drain or manhole. Never look into drain after treating.

    Place a bucket or other deep container over the drain opening after treatment. Do not use it in combination with or directly after treatment with acid type drain openers, as it will react violently. Do not enter treated sewers until they have been thoroughly flushed out with water.
