I guess you never thought my head would be this close to one of these things. Well as my procedure says I am a really comedian.
Well, what we are going to talk about today those seriously are toilets and really how they work and it is important to know this because today toilet use only 1.6 gallons of water it actually flush all the waste away that is in the bowl.
This is business end where everything starts with a toilet. This is the tank and water as you know stored in here and that energy allows the toilet to flush when we flip the handle to open up that flunker valve and that water then exits that tank and goes down into the bowl. When the water leaves the tank, where does it go?
It starts its journey right here at the back of the bolt to this giant hole. These cover it up by the tank. The water rashes into this hole and it goes two places. It goes to a siphon jet whole which is at the bottom of the bowl. Also the waters start to empty out through holes underneath the rim of the bowl and that creates the circular motion inside the toilet that helps sanitize and clean the bowl.
Now where does all that waste and any of those kids toys go when you flash the toilet? Well, it starts right here. This is called the colon and that waste travels throughout a passage way here. It goes up, comes down. It goes over here and finally it exits that bottom of the toilet right through this hole.
Toilets 101, you can see why I am flush with excitement about toilets.
