Anybody remember the power of the flush? I do – sticks in my mind like a toothpick in the eye. Let me enlighten you oh dear readers……………..
The toilets on KBE were regular toilets, no magic parts in ‘em EXCEPT that by some strange quirk of design the cistern was elevated way way above the toilet itself by about 4-5 feet ( I am talking from experience of the 4 bed gas/electric houses by the way and specifically the downstairs water closet by the back door.) Pulling the string in one of these suckers was like releasing the whirlwind. The gurgle then massive flush with the power of a tsunami on overdrive was enough to make me scared as a 4 year old so much so that I hated using that toilet preferring to go upstairs. Even the ordinary toilets had a mighty flush and there was no danger of date marks on those bowls – clean enough to eat off. I am sure even bacteria could not have held on. Needless to say that Mr. Grey at the VG never sold a single toilet brush in all the years he was the shopkeeper.
