I popped this today. Chicago has got a bunch of rain lately. I went on the roof during a frickin' monsoon. The rain actually hurt my face it was blowing sideways up on that roof. I went to their warehouse and replaced a pinched and cracked poly line feeding a coffee vending machine. Illegal in Chicago, I might add, then when the rain stopped, I went back to the main factory and got on the roof. There was about 6" of water. Now the sun was beating down and it was hot and steamy! When we cleared the drain, the suction was so loud, it hurt. But, I made their day. i am going back next week to open up 5 more clogged roof drains.

shop foreman came to "help" me unstop a roof drain when i was a wee little apprentice-3 story bldg- he pulls the cleanout plug on the ground floor- i learned a lot that day. he didnt want to go on top of the roof and get wet.he said this is how he always does it. half a second later i watched him frantically trying to screw the plug back in. he was also famous for saying "it aint going nowhere". not sure if he is still alive or employed.---great pictures. thanks for the memory!!

No, toilets tend to flush the other direction to due to the coriolis effect.

They can spin clockwise or counterclockwise depending on which way the water enters the bowl.

Does it still spin that same way in the Southern Hemisphere?
