I went to a home years ago while working for a "Rooter Co." to see about retrieving a $1500.00 necklace that the lady had accidentally knocked off of the counter into the commode as it flushed.
I told her it would be $300 for the first hour, $150 for each additional hour , to possibly snag it with a pigtail attachment on cable while watching on camera with no guarantee that we would be able to retrieve it. Even if we could retrieve it, it may come out damaged. Or we could locate with video and dig it up.
She said "That's O.K., I'll just get my boyfriend to buy me another one"
If Mr Rooter had to dig down125 ft in the bathroom, he is real fast..
At least Rick does have a video.
I found a few rings over the years, my last ring job the lady new it went in the toilet,, i ended up going in the man hole in the alley with my cable up to the clout by the house and tied a rag onto my cable head [dont got no fancy camera] and pulled it back into the manhole
No ring I felt if it was their i would have got it.
Went back in the bathroom and found it behind the vanity toekick
dont remember the cost less than 200$ and did get 100$ tip

Shame on Mr. Rooter. I could've figured out an easier way to remove a ring from 8' of pipe than jackhammering and cutting out the pipe. They could've gotten that with a micro and a couple extensions, and done it a whole heck of a lot cheaper than $5200
