 Safe Alkaline Drain Cleaner


ORPHEUS is the safer alternative to hydrochloric or sulphuric acid drain cleaners.

ORPHEUS is the safer alternative to sulphuric or hydrochloric acid based drain cleaners - but equally as effective. Unlike hydrochloric or sulphuric acid drain cleaners, it will not damage surfaces or pipework, and will not give off harsh fumes when used. ORPHEUS is a widely used drain cleaner, currently being used in industry, nursing homes, hospitals, clubs, pubs, restaurants, schools, colleges, local councils and more.

Currently used by Network Rail: We have been using uric xtreme for about two years now in both public and employee urinals and blockages are a thing of the past. We have recently started using the alkaline drain unblocker which has proved a remarkable success. I would recommend these products to anyone on industrial or commercial premises as their use has saved a lot in man hours worked. Nigel Chant - Network Rail - 5th June 2019

How to use ORPHEUS.

Use neat from the container. CLEARING A BLOCKAGE: Slowly pour 500 mls to 1 litre into the blocked pipework via the sink plughole, basin plughole or shower tray inlet - and leave for 20 to 30 minutes. Repeat if necessary. When clear flush with approximately 5 litres of clean (hot if possible) water. PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE: Using ORPHEUS regularly will keep pipes clean, hygienic and free-flowing. Pour 250 mls of ORPHEUS into the pipework via the sink plughole, basin plughole or shower tray inlet - and flush with approximately 1 litre of clean hot water. Do this once per month (or as required) in sinks, basins and shower trays etc.

    Orpheus was recommended to us by Chemassist for a trial last year, this proved to be very successful in both public and employee areas. We have introduced its application on a regular basis under a Planned Preventative Maintenance regime. We get food and fat washed from plates, hair, chewing gum and tissue in sink outlets plus a few unmentionables! It has reduced our maintenance time, the cost of which far outweighs the cost of the product. Excellent Product.
