Drain Gel

Get rid of drain flies fast with Drain Gel drain fly treatment. Drain Gel is a concentrated biological product specifically designed to treat organic matter build-up in sinks, drains and garbage disposals where drain flies harbor and reproduce. Each quart treats approximately two drains.

Treating drain fly problems with ordinary drain cleaners, hot water, detergents, bleach, or ammonia is ineffective. The most effective solution is the use of a highly concentrated biological product with specially selected bacteria strains. Drain Gel’s new formula contains MGD (Microbial Grease Degrader), a unique Bacillus strain that breaks down complex grease molecules. American Bio-Systems Drain Gel is highly concentrated and can be used directly in drains or in non-drain areas such as sinks, drain grates, and floors.

Product Documents

How Drain Gel Works

DrainGel's formulation incorporates specialized microorganisms in combination with biological support ingredients and essential growth factors. This unique formulation promotes improved performance in degradation of organic materials. The unique bacillus bacteria strain MGD (Microbial Grease Degrader) immediately multiplies and starts digesting organic waste upon application, breaking down long chain fatty acids, the primary component of problem grease. Drain Gel controls foul odors by inhibiting the normal biological production of odor-causing compounds such as hydrogen sulfide and rancid fatty acids that result from septic or anaerobic environments.

Target Pests

Organic buildup in drains that is the breeding site for odors, drain flies and fruit flies

PESTS CONTROLLED WITH DRAIN GEL: Odors, surface and drain scum, organic buildup

Target Uses of Drain Gel

Drain Gel removes hard to reach organic matter from drains where drain flies breed. This specially formulated product is made to cling to the inside of drains and pipes so that it may continue working for several hours instead of just draining away like other products. Drain Gel will also get rid of rank odors from drains and improve flow in slow drains. Drain Gel is safe for all types of plumbing and is non-toxic, non-pathogenic and non-caustic so you can use it with peace of mind.

ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Natural bacteria

Drain Gel Application Instructions

PREPARATION: If drain is not regularly used, moisten drain by pouring 1-2 gallons of warm water into drain. For all applications, apply product at time of lowest drain use, ideally at end of day after the use of all cleaning and sanitation products has been completed.

START UP: Add four ounces to each drain in area. Apply around edge of drain, attempting to coat sides of drain. Repeat dosage daily as necessary, usually for 5-7 days.

FOR MAINTENANCE: Apply four ounces per drain every one to two weeks.

*Always read the product label completely before use.

Each quart (32 oz.) bottle yields 8 drain treatments. Each gallon (128 oz.) yields 32 drain treatments.

Standard Application Rates:

*Apply 4 oz. per drain per application

Drain Gel is for use in the following areas:

No use site restrictions. Intended for use in drains and similar surfaces in kitchens where organic buildup occurs.


For non-drain areas: Remove loose and heavy surface organic matter from area before application. Spray area liberally until wet. Repeat application daily as necessary until organic material has been removed, usually for 5-7 days. Do not fog into air or apply to air moving equipment that may atomize product. For maintenance, spray area every one to two weeks, adjusting frequency based on results.


Drain Gel is not intended for outdoor use.

    5 of 5 stars  Great results!
    By Carrie on 01/13/2007

    Had fruit flies for 5 months that I could NOT get rid of. I used Drain Gel once and overnight the flies were gone, just like that. The directions on the bottle say to use up to two weeks for best results, and I probably should have kept using it for safe measure, but one night worth of this stuff in all our drains took care of the problem. I haven't seen a single fly for 3 months.

    5 of 5 stars  Drain-gel: Worked for me
    By R in Kentucky on 05/02/2010

    Had drain fly problem in my apartment for several months. Used sticky strips (collected lots of flies), used bleach in drains (had no effect) covered all drains when not in use, still had flies (no idea how they got past the covers). In desperation, decided to try this stuff. Put about one cup down kitchen and bathroom drains for two nights. No more flies. It's been almost two weeks now, still no flies.

    3 of 5 stars  It worked but
    By Susan on 09/13/2008

    I ordered the Drain Gel and used it in all my drains for 5 days, just like the directions say to do. They were completely gone until about 4 weeks later, the moth flies were back. I would look for something that gets rid of them and keeps them away for longer than 1 month.

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    In some environments such as restaurant kitchens where heavy and constant food prep is done, re-infestation may be inevitable. In these cases, the product label recommends to use 4 oz of drain gel every 2-3 weeks to maintain control.

    We had a real problem with drain flies at our home in Arkansas. It is our vacation home and it was a real chore to deal with these pests each time we arrived. I found Drain Gel online and gave it a try. It worked like magic and all the flies are gone. It is a relief to have a product on hand if the problem starts up in the future.

    1 of 5 stars  Did not work on drain/phorid flies
    By Kris in Chicago on 06/04/2017

    No issues at all with the customer service or delivery time (as I paid extra for 2 day shipping), but this was expensive and did not work for drain flies/phorid flies at all.

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    We apologize you are not seeing the expected results. However, Drain Gel only eliminates the built up debri inside the drain it self. Completely eliminating the drain flies/ phorid flies is a two step process. First, you use the drain gel to clean the drain and you can use that once a week to help maintain a clean drain. This takes away their breeding grounds. Second, you will need a pyrethrin aerosol spray to get rid of the adult flies. You use this spray as a space spray. Which is spraying the aerosol into the air instead of directly onto a surface. This will only work on the flies that are out during the application because this application does not leave behind a residual. What is left over from the space spray you can use as a spot treatment or direct treatment for the ones that weren't present during the space spray. We also have kit for the drain flies that contains all that you will need to eliminate them: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/drain-fly-kit-p-1052.html. Please read our Drain Fly Guide so you can implement a control program that will be very effective. This guide will teach you how to inspect drains and other areas that may be infested and how to best use the product you are using: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/drain-fly-identification-guide-a-515.html.

    Thank you for your comments! We are sorry that you are not satisfied with the results from the Drain Gel.

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    Thank you for your comments! If you have already identified the drains where flies are breeding, then it is possible you may just need to continue treating with a drain gel, or you may need additional cleaning and/or products to help speed up your treatment. Our Drain Fly Treatment Guide has additional tips and product recommendations to help you identify the breeding sites and eliminate a population effectively.

QDoes Drain Gel work in the toilet bowl?
I have drain flies hatching in the toilet bowl. I see the instructions call for coating the sides of the drain to eliminate buildups of grease, etc. How do you apply Drain Gel in the toilet bowl?

AYou will usually see drain flies developing in a toilet only if the toilet is not used very often. Drain Gel probably won't be the best product to use in your situation. You can turn the water off to the toilet and flush it so that the bowl and the tank are empty. Thoroughly scrub both, paying special attention to the area under the lip of the bowl and the tank. Scrubbing and cleaning these areas will help eliminate the decaying organic matter that these flies need to breed and develop in. While the toilet is drained you can apply Invade Hot Shot Foam to the tank and the bowl and let it sit overnight to clean all of the cracks and crevices that you may not be able to clean properly. Invade Hot Shot would be a good choice because it will expand to cover all of the surfaces you need to treat. This may need to be repeated a few times before you get rid of all of the gunk that can build up over time. All drains in the infested room should be treated with either Invade Hot Shot or with Drain Gel.

QWill Drain Gel help eliminate roaches coming up the drain, or should I use a roach pesticide?
I'm on a septic system also. Can Roaches live in septic tanks and then make their way up the drains?


No, Drain Gel will not treat plumbing lines for roaches. It is designed to treat the organic matter that builds up in your drains over time that leads to drain flies. Roaches can live in a septic tank, and can come up through the plumbing lines and make their way through the drains. However, you would not be able to use an insecticide in the actual drains. There is a product called Gentrol Aerosol IGR that is an insect growth regulator that stops the reproductive cycle in roaches that can be used in drains. Keep in mind, too, that roaches often just fall into or crawl in sinks because of the water there and do not actually come up through the drains. Please take a few moments to review our Roach Treatment Guide for more tips.

QDoes Drain Gel have an expiration date?
I purchased 2 one gallon bottles of Drain Gel last year. I had half a bottle left over that I am using before I purchase a new bottle. It is not as thick as it was last year. Is it better to use fresh Drain Gel? Does it expire?


Drain Gel has a shelf life of several years when stored at room temperature out of direct heat or freezing temperatures.

QIs drain gel appropriate to use in aquarium pump and filter tubing?
I am servicing an aquarium system that has tubing that is inaccessible due to the construction of the system. They are complaining of persistent low pH in the water, and I suspect bacterial growth in the tubing is affecting the water quality. Is drain gel safe and appropriate to use in this context, or is there another product that can be used?

AWe have contacted the manufacturer and they said that they do not recommend using their drain gel in aquariums and they advised that you seek advise from a professional that deals in aquariums to find what they would use in this situation. We apologize that we could not offer more help in this situation.

QWould Drain Gel work for my drains at home to treat sand flies?
I have sand flies breeding in my drains. I've had the bug tested, and it is in fact a sand fly. I'm currently pouring bleach down my drains, it helps, but I need something that does stick, and not wash away the next day.

ADrain gel would be a great option for you! Drain Gel is a concentrated biological product specifically designed to treat organic matter build-up in sinks, drains and garbage disposals  Each quart treats approximately two drains.
