How to clear a clog

A slow draining bathtub can make your family’s life miserable. Kelly from McHenry Illinois was so excited after CLR® Power Plumber® unclogged her drain that she broke into song!
“Thank you! I LITERALLY just sang the ‘Hallelujah Chorus.’ I was skeptical, but my tub drain was so bad and I already tried a ton of chemicals and a snake. I finally decided I’d have to give up and call a plumber when I saw CLR Power Plumber at Meijer and decided it didn’t hurt to try. That clog that I’ve easily spent at least $60 on, that made showers miserable for weeks, was gone in SECONDS. I’m so, so impressed. Again, thank you!”
A drain that doesn’t drain, isn’t a drain at all. If your tub or sink won’t empty out as quickly as it should, CLR Power Plumber can help you just like it helped Kelly.

How to Unclog a Drain

using CLR Power Plumber

  • Place a stopper in the drain
  • Fill tub or sink with 6–7 inches of water — enough to completely cover the CLR Power Plumber cap
  • Remove the stopper
  • Block the overflow with a damp sponge or cloth and hold firmly
  • Place the can’s cap over the drain opening and press firmly for 1 second
Always read label instructions before use. 
Repeat these steps if necessary. If the block is not cleared after the third attempt, contact a professional plumber.
For toilets, floor drains and garbage disposals, a Power Plumber Plunger Kit is needed.

Plumber in a Can

CLR Power Plumber clears almost all household clogged or sluggish drains in seconds without the use of harsh chemicals, acids or lye. It is safe to use on all sound plumbing and works on almost any clog including hair, grease, food and soap build-up.

The Compressed Gas Difference

CLR Power Plumber is different than other drain openers. Our product relies on compressed gas to clear drains. When the formula in the can is released and comes in contact with water in your drain, it expands rapidly creating a standing wave. Power Plumber uses the force of the water in your pipes to push the blockage through and clear the walls of your pipes. It’s strong enough to clear clogs up to 50 feet away!
