I have an inground pool that my skimmer line is clogged I dogged up the lines to follow where they went and when I use the snake it seems like from the skimmer a foot-and-a-half is the only distance I can go with the snake when I used to sneak from the filter to the skimmer I go beyond 12 ft my question is can I use this instant power grease and hair opener as a liquid drainer to clear out whatever is clogging the skimmer line of this tube to unclog it.

We would recommend feeding an electrician's fish tape through the lines to try and loosen up the debris. You can also try a drain cleaning water bladder. The bladder goes on the end of the hose. When you stick the bladder in the pipe and turn on the hose, the bladder expands and blows out the line.
