*Are any of the Drano like products worth
trying?


Not no, Hell NO!
Strong alkali can do a number on the trap glazing. The glazing on the
better grade toilets is there to keep the turd velocity as high as
possible. Acid is safe to use, don't experiment.

So what do you do with the left over acid?


Actually, I used my pool acid to acid wash-out toilet rim passages.

As of today, I do not own any.

Default Sluggish Toilet

The original poster said the toilet was sluggish, and he used a plunger. If
you don't know how to use a plunger or snake, that's your mental deficiency.
You can find out, with or without reading about the use of acid. Your
choice. If you can read what I wrote. I doubt it.

Read the post below of the how to use the acid and then tell me how
exactly you would utilize a plunger or snake to clear the internal flush
water passages in the toilet.

Again, the only reference to using acid was in the context of using it
to clear the internal flush water passages where a plunger or a snake
has no applicability. Go back and re-read the thread and see if you can
improve your reading comprehension.
