Hi my name is Robert......

Does this toy have any metal on it??? IF so I would try and get a long magnet that you can run down the pipe and see if you can get it. It would be better to try and get it out of the pipe before it falls into the tank. How big is the toy? It might pass out the discharge valve if it was small enough the valve opening at the discharge should be 3" round. Robert

many auto parts stores have the magnet on a flex type line. Also they have grabber tools.....
