Thrift hot water activated drain cleaner. A product that liquefies hair and grease in less than 60 seconds!

Hot water activates Thrift’s dry, odorless crystals. Within 60 seconds the drain is clear – even on the most difficult drain blockage. Thrift is also great for sewer lines, grease traps and septic systems.

THRIFT’s non-acid formula will not harm fine fixtures, porcelain, chrome trim, polished brass, plastic or metal pipes.

SMALL DRAINS: When fixtures begin to drain slowly, it is usually due to the build up of grease, hair, soap scum or bath oils. To prevent complete stoppage, let HOT water run to warm lines. Add one cup of Thrift directly into drain opening. Let hot water run until all chemical is dissolved (use approximately 2 cups of hot water to a cup of Thrift). Let stand one minute then flush with HOT water. To keep drains working properly, add 1/2 to 1 cup of Thrift once a month. If drain is completely stopped up, use a cable to open drain to allow water to flow then add Thrift as directed above, to ensure a proper working drain.

GREASE TRAPS: A regular treatment of 2 lbs. of Thrift for each 100 gallons of capacity will greatly reduce the costly pumping and cleaning of your grease trap by keeping the grease and suspended solids in a liquid form, allowing your grease trap to function properly. Thrift may be applied at any drain leading to grease trap. Pour in dry and follow with enough HOT water to dissolve all chemical. Allow Thrift to stand in grease traps as long as possible, overnight for maximum results.

SEPTIC TANKS: Thrift has no equal when it comes to maintaining a septic system and keeping it in proper working condition. To prevent costly pumping expense, use 6 lbs. of Thrift to treat a 500-gallon capacity septic tank. Pour Thrift along with very hot water down sink or tub drain (Not in Toilet), and continue to run hot water for a minute after all Thrift is down drain. Add 6 lbs. of Thrift once a year to prevent the build up of grease, and solid waste. This will ensure a proper working drain field and prevent costly repair or replacement. Proven effective and satisfying professionals for over 40 years.

SEWERS: For slow-draining 4-inch sewer lines, use 6 lbs. of Thrift, a proven heat-producing formula that will liquefy grease and solid waste. For lines 60 feet and longer, a second application may be required. Thrift may be applied directly into sewer or opening leading to sewer. Add enough HOT water to dissolve all of the dry chemical. The use of 6 lbs. of Thrift once a year thereafter will usually keep the line clear and in a sanitary working condition.


Keep face away from fumes and do not allow Thrift to come in contact with skin, eyes, mucous membranes, clothing, aluminum, floors or paint, etc. NOTE: Do not use in disposals, toilet bowls or urinals. Do not mix with other chemicals or drain cleaners.
