      Sorry that Thomas Crapper myth is just that.. a MYTH

      The real Thomas crapper was an engineer in England. “Toilets” that flushed were around over a 1,000 years before he was born.

      Contact Plumbing Mechanical publications and ask about the History of plumbing.

      Steven YOU blokes are amazing to get the vortex to flow opposite then ours AND knowing you do upside down roofing is very impressive.

      Actually I did a few upside down roofs where the insulation was held down by river rocks ( Tamco roofing systems etc with KMM for the flashing)

      I think it is amazing to find a country that has “plumbers” doing roofing as I happen to be the only LMP here as far as I know with an extensive roofing back ground.

      What is so good about actually KNOWING several trades and being duly licensd in each is It helps us professionals find leaks easier.

      Thank you Mate for answering the above comment. Sylvan

      Steven thisXXX goes without saying YOU folks did develope the proper way of doing it.

      Amazing what we penal colonies did once we got away from England holding us back.

      Look at Canada the BEST trained plumbers in the World are from there.
