Roberts is the plumber who rescued a $75,000 diamond ring from a restaurantís waste line in January. Well, lightening struck again when Roberts received a call concerning a ring being flushed down another toilet in the Tempe area.
The home owner figured that as long as the drain system didn't have any water running through it.
This time it was a 4.5 carat sapphire ring, set with one carat diamonds at a private residence. Roberts used a small camera to locate the ring. Again he had to jackhammer up the floor to reach the waste line. Once he broke into the cast iron pipe he found the ring.
Roberts said he also suspects that more rings are lost to toilet flushings than reported.
"I've been getting calls since the story about me in January," he said. "I think more people lose rings this way and don't call a plumber because they think it's useless."
So if you drop something precious to you into the toilet and it gets flushed fret not, it can be recovered. Like Einstein said, "matter cannot be created or destroyed."
