  • Patent number: 11021682
    Abstract: The drain-unclogging straw is a chemical device. The drain-unclogging straw comprises a drain clearing device and a domestic DWV system. The domestic DWV system further comprises a drain. The drain contains biochemically-generated material that inhibits the flow of wastewater through the drain. The drain clearing device is a chemical device that is formed as a kit. The drain clearing device breaks the biochemically-generated material down into components that will flow through the drain. The drain clearing device comprises a straw and a chemical compound. The chemical compound is in a solid phase. The straw contains the chemical compound. The straw is placed directly in the drain. Once in the drain, the straw dissolves such that the chemical compound is released into the drain. The chemical compound chemically interacts with the biochemically-generated material such that the biochemically-generated material is broken down.
