How to Retrieve an Item from a Drain
Featured Pro: Eric Stromer Category: Home Improvement Time: 1:29
ERIC STROMER: Hey, I’m Eric Stromer. Now, everybody’s dropped something down a drain before. And in this GMC Trade Secret, I’m going to show you some simple steps you can take to retrieve the items that you’ve dropped down your drain.
Now, here’s how to do it. It’s actually very simple. You just have to have a shop vac of some sort, something with a lot of suction. You take a simple panty hose out of the drawer, put it on the end of this hose, and then a rubber band around the outside of the hose to secure it in place so you don’t suck that back up into the hose as you do this.
Now, watch this. This is unbelievable – like magic.
Well, there it is – didn’t have to call a plumber; saved a ton of money.
Now, if that doesn’t work, there is another option. You can go underneath the sink and take off the P-trap. I’ll show you how to do that. Now, this is your P-trap. So if you can’t get it out with a vacuum coming from above, you can disassemble the P-trap below to reveal the contents and hopefully find what you’re looking for.
Ah, there it is. We staved off the need for a plumber yet again.
Retrieving something you lost down the drain is just that simple.
