      My wife thinks that her wedding ring may have gone down the Bath Tub drain. Underneath the tub (downstairs) there is a cylinder like catch (I think it is called a hair catch).

      How do I get this think open? I am guessing that I unscrew the bottom to the cylinder, but I dont know which way to turn it. I’ve tried using a pipewrench with a rubber mallet, put can’t seem to make this thing budge.

      Any Ideas?

      Thanks,

      I would try using a strong WET DRY Vacuum to suck it back rather then trying to force open an old trap
