I don't know about this product specifically, but I believe that
several of the enzymatic drain openers contain enzymes from
Bacillus subtilis.  It is questionable whether adding
microorganisms are of any value because not very many would
survive the chemicals that normally go down the drain or are
stuck down there with the clog.
