In response to Re: using enzymes to keep that shower drain clean
: i've sworn off the drano and am using a commercial enzyme solution (made by a company that makes the drano-type product) to clean the drain every so often. it says that they are safe for the pipes, but then again, why wouldn't they?

: does anyone know if this is a safe solution? thanks in advance.

Using chemicals to help keep a drain clear is literally pouring money down the drain. Some drain cleaners can actually damage piping, connections and fittings, depending on what is being used and the condition of the plumbing.
If the drain line becomes slow draining, hire a professional to snake and clean it. A good drain cleaning will last for years under normal conditions. Try to use a hair snare to help prevent clogs.
Good Luck. e-plumber
