How Does Invade Bio Drain Gel Work?

Invade Bio Drain is a probiotic drain gel cleaner, which means it contains live microorganisms. These microbe spores eat away organic buildup without needing harsh chemicals, such as Drano. Microbes activate when they contact organic material in drains. Over time, they feed on and break down this material.

The orange colored gel comes in a thick formula that easily coats drain walls. This is key to our next step.
