One my young kids managed to put a small screwdriver down the bathroom drain. It now at the bottom of the PVC trap , horizontal to the floor.

I can open the trap and feel it but I can only move forwrd or backward it small amount

My plan is to leave there and open the trap every so often to clean and junk

Is this an Ok idea? I am open any suggestions

Go to Sears, buy a WET DRY VACUUM 5 HP on sale hold the hose over the drain inlet.

Place a rag over the over flow opening.

TURN on the vacuum suck out the screw driver SMACK the kids hand and when the child gets an allowance back charge them for the Wet dry plus interest
