what happens if Drano Max Gel doesn't work? For minor clogs caused by fats, grease or soapy buildups, there's an effective solution. To start, wait while all the standing water drains from the fixture, then do the following: Pour half a cup of baking soda into the drain. After 5 minutes, pour a cup of vinegar into the drain.

Consequently, can you leave Drano Max Gel in overnight?

You can use Drano® Clog Removers to unclog a kitchen sink, bathroom sink, shower or clogged bathtub, but DO NOT use them in toilets. Apply Drano® Max Build-Up Remover overnight or before you go to work, then wait 6 to 8 hours before running warm (not hot) water down treated drains or flushing treated toilets.

How do I get rid of standing water in my yard?

Build a creek bed to direct water away from a low spot in your yard. Or if the slope of the ground permits it, use a creek bed to drain a low spot. Start by making a swale-essentially a gentle, shallow drainage ditch. Then line it with gravel or stones and add interest with boulders, a bridge or plantings.
