A plumber found a wedding ring when he was sent to fix a pub sink

Swansea bar owner thinks he may be able to prevent a marriage from going down the plug hole after a wedding ring was discovered in the u-bend of his sink.

Jason Hole, who owns That Place in the Marina, believes the owner of the ring may have faced some difficult questions when he returned home without it.

The ring was found when a plumber carried out work on a damaged sink last week, but could have ended up down the swannee anytime over the last 19 months, since the bar opened.

Swansea bar owner thinks he may be able to prevent a marriage from going down the plug hole after a wedding ring was discovered in the u-bend of his sink.

Jason Hole, who owns That Place in the Marina, believes the owner of the ring may have faced some difficult questions when he returned home without it.

The ring was found when a plumber carried out work on a damaged sink last week, but could have ended up down the swannee anytime over the last 19 months, since the bar opened.

In an effort to find its rightful owner the landlord advertised the find on Facebook and got over 1,000 shares in under two days.

The rightful owner must know what is inscribed inside the ring.

Mr Hole said: “We had a stag party in last weekend which got a bit rowdy and there was some damage to the sink in the mens’ toilets. The plumber came out to have a look at the leak and took the u-bend off and when he emptied it out what he thought was a little bolt fell out, but it wasn’t… it was someone’s wedding ring.

“We have been open for 19 months – there wasn’t a bar here before that – so it could belong to anyone who came here over the last 19 months.

“I decided to put it on Facebook and it had something like 1,000 shares in under two days.

“Anyone could say that it’s theirs, I have already had a couple of people message me trying to claim it, saying it could be mine or their husband’s, but it has an inscription which is quite unique.”

Speculating over the problem of someone explaining a lost ring to their better half, he said: “Someone could have ended up in trouble going home to their Mrs without their wedding ring but it appears to have been an honest mistake; they have just dropped it down the plug hole in the sink. It’s a push button sink and someone had taken the top of the push button off, so the gap was quite big.

“No one has ever said, ‘I’ve just dropped my wedding ring down the sink, so they might have been quite drunk when they did it and not noticed… until they got home!”

Chris Hole, from Pro-Plumbing, who found the ring, added: “I thought that it was part of the tap first of all. I didn’t think it was a wedding ring until I picked it up and saw that there was an engraving on it.

“I gave it to Jason when I realised what it was and he said that he would put it on Facebook.

 

“I’ve been a plumber for 14 years and have never found a ring like this before but I don’t do much work in pubs.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if the guy who lost it came in for some stick from his wife; she probably accused him of playing away.”
