Question by  Girl (26)

Does the toilet water really flush in the opposite direction in the Southern hemisphere?


Answer by  cpxi (191)

No, the idea that water swirls in the other direction in the opposite hemisphere is just an urban myth - the direction depends on the shape of the bowl.


Answer by  tamarawilhite (17883)

Yes. This is a result of the Coriolis Force. Due to this effect, hurricanes and tornadoes in the southern hemisphere also spin the opposite way.

No, this is a myth. The direction in which toilet water flushes does not depend on the hemisphere of its location.
