The Nuclear Option for Drain Flies!
Since moving into this house, we've fought drain flies for at least a year-and-a-half. Countless Internet hours to identify and investigate drain flies, an airborne plague never seen before during six decades in other homes. Finally found these aerial gremlins actually live and breed inside drains.

Weapons of war?

Swatters, rolled magazines, hand smashes, indoor bug zapper, tubs of boiling water, gallon of horticultural vinegar with boxes of baking soda, special-purpose drain brush, bleach, and gel drain cleaner. Flies still flying!

Started by cleaning all seven bed and bathroom drains with other products. This reduced invaders, but didn't stop them. Then found some congregated in the laundry room and added the washing machine drain to the battle theater.

Some of these drains had straight pipes much longer than the 22" drain brush. Took the bathroom sink drains apart (PCV unscrewed and later reinstalled by hand), gave 'em a good inside scrubbing. Got a good look at the viscous black goo that DFs love. This proved that the brush couldn't remove 100% of goo within its reach, and didn’t affect out-of-its-reach goo.

After reassembling newly cleaned sink drains, assaulted the master bath shower drain and washing machine drain. Gel cleaner reduced fly numbers, but didn't land a knockout punch. Never sure that gel coated 100% of drain interior surfaces.

HOT SPOT TO THE RESCUE! This wonder produce covers 100% of drain interiors. The next few days will prove whether or not we've vanquished the scourge!

(May you and yours stay safe and healthy as COVID-19 continues to rampage.)

a little slow but effective.
I was disappointed at first because it seemed to be ineffective after a week or so. When I called and talked to one of the technical guys they told me to be patient and let this stuff work. BINGO! About two weeks in it was as if someone flipped a switch and the flies vanished!
I highly recommend this product and this company!

Works great!
This product works great and is easy to use. 1 can goes a long ways. You have to stay on top of it though or the problem will keep coming back. Those pesky drain flies sure are some persistent little buggers. I have the solution now though, it's called Hot Spot !!!

No Luck
Tried three cans and no luck. Called and the guy told me that it takes a long time before it works. Used up the three cans as directed and the flies were still there. When to the Home Depot and bought some Zep Drain Care for $9.98 and did the drains for four days as directed and it worked Great. Kind of expensive for three cans anyway at $15.00.

I was confounded by these bad boys until I found DIY and Rockwell Labs. In my older house, I have about 6 drains and the result was instant and they stayed away. I know I have an issue to the sewer and they are coming from a subterranean location. After the prescribed initial treatment only 4 oz of the BioDrain in each drain a month did it. Now after a year of great performance, I am coming back to expand the elimination. I have every confidence that they will help me succeed in phase two.

Awesome Product
I used this product in conjunction with the invade bio treatment and I have not seen any drain flies. I am now one happy camper

Couldn't be happier to find a product that does what it says it will do!
After a few applications of Hotspot in my basement drain, I'm no longer seeing sewer flies. I had been having a problem with them for over a year. So happy!!! Great product!!!

Instant Relief for Drain Flies!
For the past year we've had what I thought were clothes moths in our master bathroom. Put cedar blocks in my wife's closet, and in the ceiling vent fan, to no avail. Then I did an internet search on "bathroom moths" to find out they weren't moths at all, but rather drain flies. Ordered 2 cans of Hot Spot, and 2 applications later, NO MORE DRAIN FLIES IN THE BATHROOM!!! Fast shipping, easy application, and it took care of our problem. What's not to like?

Works Great !!!
After realizing we had a "drain fly" problem instead of a "fruit fly" problem i could finally go after the source. I ordered 3 cans and have used just over 1 can and our problem has come to an end. 1 can treated 6 drains many many times. It took a few weeks of multiple treatments but the nuisance is now gone. Great product and very easy to use!

It works!
Get at least four cans and use it for 10 days and then every other day for 5 more applications and then once a week. It works!
I do not work for these guys, but with two bathrooms, shower, three sinks, two bathtubs and a shower it is easy to go through two cans in 10 days.
