Insecticide – The reason for not during down insecticide is quite logical as it can damage the environment and can find its way back into the water system. Additionally pouring insecticide down the drainage happens to be illegal as well.
Hot water- This may come as a surprise as it should work and should kill them. One needs to take into account that cockroaches are used to these kinds of environments as they have the habit of going into sewerage systems. When you pour down hot water, the least it will do is irritate them. Because it is so hard to tell how deep they really are, water may not even reach them until it has cooled down making it very ineffective. Another issue with this is that your drain has a lot of grease buildup already because of the fats and oils. When you pour down hot water it will just cause the fats to melt and essentially push down the grease and will just clog the system.
Scaling chemicals – Chemicals that are meant to decompose calcium and mineral buildup may actually do more damage and weaken your pipes.
