At least in the marketing copy, it reads:
"THRIFT's non-acid formula will not harm fine fixtures, porcelain, chrome trim, polished brass, plastic or metal pipes."
and now click on the MSDS sheet link on that page. Here let me post if for you. MSDS for Thrift non acid cleaner
which btw is the same link Redwood gave.
Now read halfway down the page posting it just in case:
CHEMICAL NAME: Sodium Hydroxide
CHEMICAL FAMILY: Caustic Soda
CHEMICAL FORMULA: NaOH
Yes it is not an acid, but a caustic Soda, its the other extreme on the PH scale. It is just as bad as any acid out there. What makes it worse is people will try an acid then try this and there will be a violent reaction. I tell everyone I know stay away from chemical drain cleaners, and what ever you do, DO NOT MIX DRAIN CLEANERS
If the first one you tried does not work, STOP RIGHT THERE, and call in a professional and inform them what product you used.
