Occasionally we get a call from a client who has lost a valuable piece of jewelry down the drain. The first step is to stop running water down this drain. For the most part, large jewelry won’t go past the point in the pipe called the “p-trap”.
If you feel confident and possess the right tools, you may be able to retrieve this item without the assistance of a plumber. Simply place a bucket under the trap (u-shaped pipe under your sink) to catch any water. Carefully loosen the nuts on either side of trap and slowly remove the pipe. Dump the contents of the trap into the bucket. If your lost item is not in the trap, it may still be able possible to retrieve it. Give Atomic a call, and we will be out as soon as we can to help.
