When taking shower and someone flushes toilet at same time the water in shower is scalding hot?

When you take a shower, you're mixing a combination of hot and cold water to make a comfortable temperature for the shower water. A toilet draws only off the cold water system. In older or poorly designed plumbing systems, when you flush the toilet, the cold water is pulled by toilet, so the water coming through the shower is only drawing from the hot water tank.

Why would my toilet bowl empty out?

A toilet that slowly looses all of the water out of the tank or bowl when it has not been used for a log time is experiencing a condition that renders the toilet almost unusable. When you flush a toilet, the water in both the tank and the bowl empty out, only to be immediately replenished with fresh water.

When you flush the toilet the shower water gets hot why?

Code allows your plumber to supply three fixtures using 1/2 tubing. In most bathrooms, you only have three fixtures (tub/toilet/lavatory). So most plumbers only run 1/2 pipe to supply the bathroom. Code allows this. Personally, I find this layout a little short-sighted.Anyways - when someone flushes, the toilet requires water to refill. Which means your shower is now sharing that water supply with the toilet as the toilet refills. What I love best is when you re-adjust the shower valve...then the toilet quits filling...and you scald yourself. Lots of fun there.Your problem is caused by poor plumbing (my opinion) or if you are in an older home, galvanized pipes tend to corrode from the inside which only makes the condition worse.If you like to do things yourself, carry over a 3/4 line and pull 1/2 take-offs for each fixture and the problem will be solved.In a straight : When you shower you are using both hot and cold at the same time and when you flush the toilet you are causing the homes cold water to be guided more through the toilet line including the cold water that you are using from the shower line.:If a few words, water pressure and flow are inversely related. The more flow you have, the less the water pressure. Since the toilet and shower are connected to the same water supply line, when there is flow into the toilet, it takes away from the shower. Since cold water is used to supply the toilet, it takes away from the cold water flow to the shower. With the same amount of hot water flowing, the temperature of the water in the shower will get hotter.

If you flush a live goldfish down the toilet can it swim back up?

Actually No, a Goldfish cannot swim back up the toilet. The construction of the trap (the "hole" in the bottom of the fixture) prevents water from backing up into the toilet (see links for a picture). the only way this might be possible is if the toilet is clogged. (the water can't go down the drain and overflows)

Can snails live in a toilet?

Only if you feed them and have water circulation. If you flush the toilet often or use it for it's main purpose, the snails will probably be flushed away or poisoned. If you clean the toilet bowl and they are living there they will be killed. They can, however, probably live in the tank of the toilet, considering that the water circulates. With no source of food, though, they will die. ~Wigglerthefish Fish Help Forum
