Marine Digest-It, though it is not intended for use in shower lines, is a great solution for cleaning drain / sanitation lines and sumps that can become clogged or run slowly due to backups from soap, shampoos, greases, and oils.
Please Note: Marine Digest-It will not eat hair. However, the reason why hair clogs drains is because grease or grime from soaps, shampoos, and body oils, collects along the walls of drain lines and catches hair as it runs down the pipe, thus clogging the line. Marine Digest-It rapidly digests the contaminates on the pipe walls eliminating the debris, leaving nothing for the hair to cling to so it can simply wash away.
Often a line will run slowly because hair has attached itself to the drain cover, plunger, or stopper in your sink or tub. Simply pull the hair off to allow the water to drain normally.
If there is still no sign of improvement, the hair may need to be removed manually. We recommend using a small drain cleaning tool to remove large amounts of hair, like this one. Once the hair is removed, the bacteria will be able to eat away anything that the hair might stick to.
Absolutely! Marine Digest-It's highly concentrated, non-toxic, blend of safe bacteria contain no harsh chemicals or scary additives. That means no possibility of harm to your family, your pets, or the environment.
