    Yes agree with the chemical option but not usally a quick job if waste pipe is collecting numerous urinals,needs dosing & flushing a few times normally which takes time.Hope its not in a pub where they will be queueing for a p--s.:D

    I seem to get a few of these in pubs, i reckon word has got round that I will tackle anything! I do it in the morning, not when customers are around. The only way is to get stuck in, if there are no access points, then you'll have to cut the pipes and put some in. I use one of those skinny flexi rods that come in a little drum and can be spun with a handle. You can put chemicals down it, but if its completely blocked they'll never do the job. I charge double time for anything sewage connected

    Not cleared one before, would caustic soda not be a option, and if it's urinals, may I ask what it is blocked with!?!?

    Forgot to say, be very careful with it. All the old plumbers used it years ago. it will shift anything, but try not to breath the fumes it can burn the lining of your hooter!

    Go to B and Poo, get a couple of bottles of 'One shot'.
    This is mild sulphuric acid. Be very, very careful, it burns like *. Wear gloves and goggles.

    The best thing by far for urine crystals, been using it for years.
