Questions about this article

30/10/2012 - No the DSI will not dissolve the wax just by pouring it down the sink trap, it would need to be scrubbed as well. You may need something more powerful such as Hydrochloric acid. Be best to consult a plumber or plumbing supplies on how much to use and also the correct acid / cleaner to use.
