Toilet bowl cleaners

My wife came home with pkg. of "Ty-D-Bol" crystals.

This stuff contains "Cetrimonium Bromide" 0.5 %

I read somewhere here that Toilet Bowl cleaners are not all created equal, and can etch away toilet parts,etc.

Anybody have a comment about this?

Thanks

What out knowing what the manufactor of you toilet says the only safe thing is not to use anything in the tank, get the ones that go into the bowl.

Without knowing what the directions say for your toilet I can't say if you should use them or not; if you use them and the inside of your toilet fails you know they shouldn't be in there, your call.

Our leases prohibit any product being placed in the tank, as the bleach in the tablets wrecks the rubber in the flapper and leads to leaks. Don't know whether the product you have contains bleach....
