This is so much easier than getting a wrench, unscrewing two joints, and simply emptying the pipe's contents into a bucket!

Now all I have to do is hop in the car, drive to a hardware store, buy a wet/dry shop vac, come back home, steal someone's pantyhose (I hate that word and I hate their existence, for the record), and voila! So easy! Thanks handyman douchebag.

"In this case it's a wet/dry shop vac, but any vacuum cleaner, I would imagine, will do."

No it won't. Do not do that. There's a reason "wet/dry" is part of the name. If you drop your wedding ring down the drain and whip out your Hoover, you're going to be in for a very sad time.

ok guise, i think i've been 4channing it foar too long. when i saw the title "How to get dropped items back without taking apart the sink" with transvestite in the tags, i honestly thought this was going to be about what to do if ur bein a tranny and u drop ur ballz buffalo bill style and they get all stuck up in ur insidez. i was all ready to go with the nsfw tag and everything. funny thing is, wet/dry suck 'em out would probly still work as a solution.

I agree with your dislike for pantyhose, as well. For instance, these two scenarios involving an attempt at roleplay during an average day after work:

"Take off yer pantyhose, lady."
"No way, pervert!"
"I hate it when you call me a pervert, honey."

"Drop yer panties, lady."
"Okay, sir!"
"Yeah, I like when you call me sir."

In one scenario, the woman (your wife, girlfriend, or secretary) is coming home from work (or is at work if it's your secretary) and doesn't want to mess around. Pantyhose is for work, not play.

In the second scenario, the woman is in a more casual state, wearing panties, rather than the full hose, and will enjoy it if you tell her to drop them.

However, there is one additional scenario (the best one, imo):

"Drop yer panties, baby."
"I don't have any panties to drop."
"Oh, snap!"

This is my own justification for disliking pantyhose and in return disliking the word itself.

Pantyhose: bad
Panties: good
No panties: excellent

.... or your wedding ring that you took off in a fit of anger, then later realized you probably should get back if you ever want to see your children again.

Thank you vacuum science!

*Melodramatic. A regular vacuum could work, you just have to let the sink dry out. And at no point is this guy a douchebag, or maybe the Glenn Beck videos are causing me to set the bar too high.

Im pretty sure that using a wrench and a bucket is much easier and overall better.

Lets examine the facts shall we:

1) You do not have to go buy a vac.
2) Taking off the pipes allows you to empty your pipes as well.
3) You do not destroy a pair of pantyhose (k, maybe thats not a con)
4) Using simple tools is much safer then operating heavy machinery

(these are really shitty facts)

I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be a good idea to still use a contact lens THAT YOU FISHED OUT OF THE FUCKING DRAIN.


I'm pretty sure you would wash the contact before YOU PUT IT IN YOUR FUCKING EYE.

Melodramatic? Just let the sink dry out? I think "just let the sink dry out" would be a pretty damn important step! A step he leaves out. He recommends a more involved way of retrieving a lost item as an EASIER way, making it seem simple. In fact, it's a BIGGER pain in the ass. Moreover, he recommends doing something that will destroy your vacuum and may cause fire or injury. That, my friend, makes him a douche. (I avoid all Glenn Beck videos though, so maybe my standards are lower than the average sifter.)

Also, how long do you need to wait for the water to evaporate? I would imagine a long time. Just let the sink dry out. Just don't use the sink for 2 days. Crikey.

Wrench, bucket, 5 minutes. That's all you need for this job.

Months. The trap, strangely enough, traps water in the pipe. This trick will suck air from your roof vents through the trap, pulling along all the water in the trap, and anything else in the drain that is not dense/small enough to stay down there when a rush of water goes by. Seriously, don't do it unless you have a wet/dry.

AeroMechanical says...

I haven't emptied my trap in a while, and I recall dropping a few things down there though I can't remember what they are anymore.

Quick warning for anyone though. Never ever use your shop vac anywhere near a sewer drain. Those ones in the basement floor are trouble. That's very very bad. It takes a long time and is very unpleasant to clean out your vacuum, you have to buy a new filter, and the basement will be uninhabitable for a while and possibly explode.

Anyways, I think the pantyhose might be a fine enough mesh to keep water out though, so maybe you could use a normal vacuum cleaner.

Addendum: I agree that it's probably easier to just use a wrench. Getting out the shopvac, plugging it in, finding some hosiery, and then putting it all away again probably takes longer anyways.
