I assume you mean the water is hot when you flush it. If so the toilet has been plumbed into the hot water system when it should be plumbed into the cold. That happened to me once I thought the toilet was going through menopause, However as it turned out however the hot flushes turned out to be a hot water pipe being connected rather then a cold water pipe.

Yes, this does work rather well, however, you need to ensure that the water is very hot before adding oxyclean to the toilet. I generally pre-warm the toilet bowl slowly by adding several buckets of hot water to the bowl over about a 15 minute time period.

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.

It is not more hot water flowing, it is less cold water flowing. Less cold water in the mix makes the resultant water hotter. Less cold water flows because half (guesstimate) of the available cold water is now diverted to fill the toilet.

What is that experiment with the two bowls with hot and warm water?

There is one bowl of hot water and one bowl of cold water and one bowl of warm water. You place one hand in the hot and one hand in the cold for approx. 30 seconds and then place your hands in the warm water and that hand that was in the hot water will feel cold and the hand that was in the cold water will feel hot. This is because the nerves have gotten used to the temperature and therefore have to adjust again to return to normal. Thanks! That helps a lot! I knew I had done it before but I couldn't remember what it was!
