You would think today’s cartoon has nothing to do with Australia. But you would be wrong. In an effort to conserve water, dual flush toilets have been installed in a whole bunch of places including all the hotels we stayed in. Some, unfortunately, didn’t work as well as others.
For the uninformed, a dual flush toilet has two buttons. One that is a half flush for liquids and the other a full flush for solids. The problem is that in several situations the half flush wasn’t enough to actually flush everything down so it required another push. Usually the second push was the full flush button just to ensure there was no yellow in the bowl. So instead of using half the amount of water to flush, you end up using 50% more than a typical sing flush toilet.
Or maybe it was just operator error.
