If you have a flush toilet, does the water go down the drain clockwise or counter-clockwise?

I'm listening to the Disney radio station and someone said some toilets drain one way or the other, depending where you live Shocked

Depending upon how the water is directed. The Coriolis effect has no effect on toilets or drains.

The Simpsons had an episode about this.

Anyway, Snopes says it's an urban legend...

We do have a place in NC where the water flows up hill. I don't know what kind of devices they use in their toilets. There are actually many of these anomilies around the world but ours is the most famous!

Thanks for putting that link to mysteryhill JP. Sounds like it would a fun place to visit. We have a hill around they call gravity hill. If you park your car at the bottom of the hill and put in neutral it will pull you back up the short side of the hill.

Did not mean to steer of course there. We don't flush here ain't no running water in the outhouse.

i think the clockwise counter-clockwise was in relation to being north or south of the equator?

could be wrong on that though.

Here's a list of other vortex spots in the US. There might be another one closer to you.
