HOW TO SAVE YOUR JEWELRY FROM A SINK DRAIN
May 28, 2019

Have you ever got into a situation when your earring or wedding ring fell into a sink drain? Usually, it happens in the morning while you are washing your face or brushing your teeth, and it seems that this day just ruined and nothing can fix it. Well, you will be more than happy to know that you can take your little important things back easily by using a wet/dry vacuum and usual nylon tights. Although it probably will be better to choose an old one. If you got interested, so carefully read tips below proposed by Excellent Plumbing:

  1. Turn the water off to not let it run into a drain.
  2. Get under your sink to unclip the stopper bracket and remove the plunger rod.
  3. After that remove the sink drain stopper and replace the plunger rod, it will allow creating a suction.
  4. Take wet/dry vacuum cleaner, because you cannot use ordinary vacuum due to the danger of electric shock when in contact with water in the sink.
  5. Then you need to pull your old nylon tights on a vacuum cleaner tube and put it over the sink drain.
  6. Turn on your vacuum cleaner and wait for a couple of seconds.
  7. Then you can remove a cleaner tube from the drain, turn it off and get your jewelry from the tights.
  8. Put both stoppers to their original positions and turn the water on again.
  9. Your day is saved and everything is great again!
