Uh Oh There Goes My Ring Again
Updated: Oct 23, 2019
If you have read our post “Retrieve Your Valuables” then you may have become an expert on retrieving lost items from the trap located under your sink. However, you may not feel too confident and possibly even go into a mode of sheer panic if your ring fell down your shower drain. Here are a few tricks you can use in order to retrieve your lost item.
1) Don’t panic and immediately turn off the water (* You don’t want the water to push the ring further down)
2) If you have a wet/dry vacuum or shop vac try sucking up the ring(or other piece of jewelry)
3) Don’t have a vacuum use anything hooked shape such as a wire coat hanger or fishing line and try to retrieve it.
4) Another option will be a magnet. If your jewelry has iron in it you may be able to use a string and magnet.
Give these helpful tricks a try in the event your ring or jewelry falls into the shower drain, and if you are unsuccessful don’t sweat it.
