Steps Mo Deck gets really good reviews. I have used a slip plate graphite spray paint. You can usually find it in farm supply stores. They use it in grain wagons etc.

If you are going to use a snake in a toilet, use some 1 1/2" pvc and a 45° st. elbow to get the snake into the toilet far enough so that any scratching, or staining from a rusty snake can't be seen.
