DrainStix Scam Review – Why Some Say It’s a Scam!

Why are consumers saying DrainStix is a scam? Find out more in our honest and factual review.

DrainStix (DrainStix.com) is a consumer product that is said to eliminate clogged and smelly drains once and for all.

Each DrainStix is said to last all year long and are backed by a 100% guarantee.

DrainStix does not seem to have made their way into local retailers and is available for purchase online for the time being.

To find out more regarding whether DrainStix can help your clogged sinks AND why consumers are asserting that DrainStix is a scam, we invite you to read our unbiased review.

What is DrainStix?

DrainStix is a household consumer good that allegedly eliminates clogged and smelly drains.

A slim, 6 inch stick, DrainStix is heavily concentrated and offers a slow-release of concentrated enzymes to eliminate backups, clogs and odors.

In addition to helping your drains remain free-flowing, DrainStix is also promoted as an option to consider to save money on plumbers and drain snakes while the enzymes in their DrainStix do the work for you.

As we have previously mentioned, DrainStix does not seem to be that popular of a consumer good since they don’t appear to have broken their way into local retailers while they possess a minimum presence on the web.

How does DrainStix Work?

DrainStixs are engineered with a super concentrated assortment of enzymes that are said to break down oil, mildew, grease and excess food wastes while deodorizing and keeping your drains odor-free.

Each DrainStix lasts around a month so they recommend replacing your DrainStixs monthly.

During the time of writing this review, DrainStix was allegedly offering 50% off their DrainStix packages but they have also been running these same promotions since 2018 it appears.

  • 1 Pack of DrainStix – $12.95
  • 2 Packs of DrainStix – $24.60
  • 3 Packs of DrainStix – $34.96
  • 4 Packs of DrainStix – $44.03
  • 5 Packs of DrainStix – $51.80

We believe each pack comes with a dozen DrainStixs, 1 for each month of the year.

DrainStix.com does not provide information on who their manufacturers may be.

Who is Behind DrainStix?

DrainStix does not openly make their corporate entity known.

Since DrainStix has their site structured as a sale funnel page, DrainStix.com does not have an Origin or About Us page which makes finding information regarding their overseeing entities difficult.

Their contact page includes the following contact information:

Email: support@mydrainstix.com

Telephone: 1 (844) 738-5986 available Monday – Friday 7a.m. to 5 p.m. MST.

3rd Party Fulfillment House

10450 N Airport Rd
Hayden, Idaho 83835

In order to find reference to an overseeing entity we had to browse their Terms & Conditions, where DrainStix Inc. appears to be the disclosed overseeing entity.

According to the Better Business Bureau, Drain Stix reflected a BBB Rating of D+.

Last but not least, DrainStix appears to have Facebook, although they haven’t appeared active since August 9th, 2018.

DrainStix Reviews

DrainStix does not reflect much of a presence on the net.

We investigating into DrainStix we were only able to find 1 relevant review with consumer feedback.

Shared below are a couple of reviews we found at ReviewOPedia.com.

“I never received my order!!! Ordered Nov. 28th 2018 and your phone number is disconnected!!!! WTF!!! Someone better call me asap!!!”

“DrainStix do not dissolve, but leave behind a rubbery expanded stick which helps to clog the drain. The company indicates that the product gets rid of clogs and completely cleans the drains. If that were actually true, stop and think about how long it takes for brand new drains to clog up, and then think about their recommendation that you keep putting these in every month. Personally, it took nearly 15 years for the drains to need some attention in my new house. Many users of this product have had severe clogs and pulled out a number of these expanded rubbery stick aiding the clog, and relieving their pocket book of cash.”

Another consumer commented beneath the last testimonial above on January 9th, 2019 stating that the toll free number of DrainStix was out of service.

Domain Insight

DrainStix.com was a privately registered domain that was created on May 9th, 2018 through the NameCheap, Inc registrar.

According to SimilarWeb, DrainStix.com reflected a global rank of 869,945 with a US rank of 219,000 as of March 1st, 2019.

What we found interesting detailed in the market intelligence report would be how 96.67% of DrainStix traffic, which isn’t much, stems from referral based sources.

Among the top referral based sites referring site visitors to DrainStix would be neathometips.com and eayhomemag.com.

Is DrainStix.com Consumer Trustworthy?

If you consider the fact that during the time of writing this review that DrainStix reflected nothing but unsatisfactory consumer experiences, is not well-known and not publicly available in local retailers then you’d likely reach the conclusion that we did, which would be that DrainStix does not appear trustworthy.

DrainStix Scam Review

The main issue that we have regarding DrainStix stems from their lack of transparency.

In order to find their corporate entity, we had to scour their site while as a whole DrainStix appears relatively unknown amongst consumers within the United States.

To add, consumers have reported an inability to reach out with the operators behind DrainStix.

Until more consumer feedback can be amassed regarding DrainStix, we do not advise consumers to put their trust and hard-earned money with DrainStix.com.

Outcome: DrainStix doesn’t appear Trustworthy!

    I purchased two packages of DrainStix – when they arrived, all but one stik was broken. I contacted customer service by e-mail to ask if I could use them broken like that, they said yes. So, I went ahead and put them in my two slow-running drains. There has been absolutely no improvement whatsoever in these two slow-running drains. Accordingly, I have no choice but to believe that the DrainStix people are selling a product that does not perform as they say it will. Steer clear!

  2. Lyn

    In the beginning of this ad it says Drainstix are $13. When I go to purchase, I am told $12.95 is 50% off! Reallly? I would love to try this product but refuse to purchase from a company that engages in false, or at the very least, misleading advertising. Would have purchased it for the $12.95 had I not been promised 50% off of $13 earlier. And funny, but their comment area on the order form will not allow a negative review. In looking further, I found them at Walmart for $5.99!

  3. Patricia Reece

    Simply did not work at all! Ordered two packages and one was all broken! Don’t buy them bacause they do not work! Sould have read reviews before I spent my money!! I would mark it as spam!!

  4. Mary

    My bath tube clog is still there . I had cleaned out hair with my fingers. Used another drainstix which my drain still got clog. The water did turn a pretty blue , but who wants back up blue water.
    Return policy is not good. Customer service on phone,poor. I did get email telling me they will refund 65% of cost.

  5. Stacy Foster

    I ordered a single pack to try these to see if they would in fact address my slow drain problems. Like another person who made a comment I received an open package and all the sticks were broken, some pieces as small as 3/4″. I tried to email customer service, but my email came back as undeliverable because their mailbox is full. I’m so glad I only ordered 1 package because after reading further I will most likely just throw them away and chalk it up to “fool me once… “

  6. Violet

    I ordered two packages, and one package arrived open as if old, and all the sticks were out of the package. Most of the stixs were broken in pieces which wouldn’t be good to put down the drain. I will email them and see how they handle this. Will keep you updated.

    If consumers, would get under their vanities and cabinets, they can locate the plunger that makes the sink plug go up and down. Thru examination, they can disconnect this plunger and pull the sink plug from the sink drain. Get a long wire, put it down the drain, clean out any hair or clogging particles. Then use an old tooth brush, scrape your pipe drain sides…. Now get back under the vanity or sink and put the disconnected pieces back together. Your problem should be solved….. until next time.

    I saw the reviews on ReviewOPedia.com before I came to this website. Part of the problem on ReviewOPedia.com is that the phone number they have for Drainstix is wrong. The number you have on this site seems to be the right one.
