Normally the drain is clogged by grease and the hot water mixed with the chemicals in liquid plumbr will unclog the grease build up in the pipes and allow the water to flow through the pipes again. The hotter the water the faster it will unclog.

This is the same/similar reaction that you will get if you pour baking soda in your drain and then add white vinegar as it will start a reaction between the two products but you then need to pour hot water on top to finish the cleaning.

This is a good way to keep your drains clean and not have to use liquid plumber.
This should be done about once a month but always try to not pour any type oil or grease down the drain.
You can also use this type of cleaning solution in your bathroom drains.
Just be careful when using hot water.

The Hot water activates the chemical and cuts through buildup by using hot water( cold water takes longer and just puddles).
