The PermaFlow Never Clog Drain - Lost Jewelry Retrieval Made Easy

By on Sunday, January 17, 2010 8 Comments

When I was a child, my mother lost her pearl earrings down the bathroom sink drain.

Just think if she had the transparent PermaFLOW Never-Clog Drainshe could not only see if they were still stuck in the pipe, it could also have helped her retrieve them. Pity the patented design wasn't invented back then!

The unit is "engineered to increase turbulence to propel debris and minimize potential build-up." As it is also transparent, you will be able to keep an eye on the state of the drain.

Got a clog? Just turn the integrated wiper and the blockage is gone. No chemicals, no expensive plumbing bills. It fits standard drains and there are adapters for older types. No wonder it is an award winning, environmentally friendly design.

Back to the lost jewelry bit. If you see that you've lost your ring, you can use the wiper to lift up your precious piece enough so you can use a hook, coat hanger or some other tool to retrieve it.  Watch this video which shows you how a small toy car is retrieved from the trap. How much does this miracle device cost? Just $20. I want at least one!

But if you accidentally flushed jewelry down the toilet, you're out of luck unless you had the resources of this lady whose $70,000 diamond ring fell off her hand when she was in a restaurant bathroom.

  1. You know Pearl this is a great guess would be a woman designed this!!!!!! :0)

    I would like one as well!


  2. I have clicked over here several times today and have been fascinated by this design, I don't know why, but it is somehow aesthetically pleasing as well as functional! :)

    So glad you got the book!! :)

  3. I must admit I liked the video. The sound of all that gurgling water was soothing!

  4. So I would have proof that my son really does rinse all those hairs down the sink? Sold!

  5. I've seen this device advertised on TV. It seems to be a marvelous invention. So far I've not dropped my ring down the drain but I have been known to drop beads. Usually my hubby acts as plumber and disconnects the U trap for me. Most of the time luck has been on my side and the bead or beads will be resting in the trap awaiting their rescuer. For $20 the PermaFlow is a pretty good deal.

  6. Pearl just had to make a comment on lost jewelry. My daughters 2 carat wedding ring fell into the bathroom sink drain. They took the pipe off but didnt find it so just excepted that it was lost. Well about 5 yrs. later they were renovating the bathroom to sell the house. One of the men from their church seen the sink off to the side of the yard and told my son in law he ought to break it up because just maybe the ring could be caught in the overflow of the sink. He did it and there it was caught in the narrow part of the overflow. She wasn't home at the time and when she got back he asked for her hand and put it on her finger and she started crying that how could he ever find one just like her original and he said its because it is the Original and thats the rest of the story.

    Have a great day,Doris

  7. That is a wonderful story, Doris. Love the happy ending!
