A question about toilets

Post by WeeWorld » Wed Nov 28, 2018 4:22 pm

I have noticed that "pumping" the toilet handle results in a more effective flush than just giving it a single turn.
Why is this?

OK, should have googled, seems to be just a question of more water flowing into the bowl which creates greater suction.

It’s because your arm is as weak as your mind. Someone had to say it. You’re welcome.

I was getting ready for a night out in Memphis about 10 years ago when I managed to block the bog in my hotel room. In my haste, I compounded my misfortune by snapping the chain off when i tried a supplemental, extra-hard flush.

Reception duly sent up someone very promptly, dressed in blue overalls and carrying a plunger the size of those pepper-mills you used to get in an Italian restaurant.

He headed off to the bathroom and, following a bit of splashing around, I heard him say "Oh man...."

He re-appeared, ashen-faced, and confirmed "I've gotta get you guys a new room".

Brad Paisley - Ode de Toilet (The Toilet Song)

She says not to buy her flowers
Or big expensive gifts
She says she don't want jewlery
And she doesn't need another dress
If I want to show her how much I adore her
The best way that I've found
Is to make sure when I'm finished
I put that toilet seat down

We've been to counseling
To try and see the ways we could improve
This thing between us
And different ways to show each other "I love you"
Forget about those getaway vacations
To romantic coastal towns
If you want to say "I love you"
Then put that toilet seat down

'Cause in the middle of the night
It's cold and it's dark
And when I hear my name in vain
I know I haven't done my part
She just wants me to support her
And the best way that I've found
So with a gentle hand and a loving touch
I put that toilet seat down

I know it's kind of funny
You can teach a little puppy
But it's very hard to train a grown man
When I'm all about my buisiness
And the path of least resistance
She's the one that suffers in the end

In the middle of the night
It's cold and it's dark
And when I hear my name in vain
I know I haven't done my part
She just wants me to support her
And the best way that I've found
So with a gentle hand and a loving touch
I put that toilet seat down
Down, down

Was going to say Lionel was probably unlucky to get a room after Elvis had chopped off a few large logs the previous day. Famed not just for his singing but rumoured to have shared a ton of burger meat per month.
