Someone hooked up the hot water supply to the toilet instead of the cold water supply- or your water heater is back drawing hot water through to the toilet from a cold water inlet (supply)

Homes are residential and take less of a pounding compared to the constant use of commercial toilets in office buildings. Commercial toilets are built way stronger and usually have to be sized according to handicap rules in the city where they are installed. They also take a 1" water supply compared to a 1/2" supply for a house toilet.

if you have water to the rest of the house and its the toilets only then either someone has turned off the valves under the toilets or the fill valves have both failed at the same time. [not very likely!!] cant be much of anything else.

Yes. My parents had 2 out of the 3 Crane toilet tanks in our house break. One broke while we were gone for the weekend and it flooded our house because it kept trying to refill itself. Crane recognized that there's a defect in the tanks from toilets from the mid 80s. However, they never did a recall on them. Instead they wait until the tank breaks and they'll replace the tank if you contact them.

Everything from the toilets goes into holding tanks under the toilet and get emptied by special trucks each time the aircraft lands.

Usually, but only a very minimal amount of water or solution. The holding tanks have limits on what they can hold before spilling over.

Not any more. In the far past, you simply went over the side. Then toilets were put in and they flushed into the sea. Now they flush into holding tanks. Many ships have specialized systems that dry things out and burns the waste. Others have bacteria, like a septic tank, that process the waste. Others pump the tanks in port into the sewage systems.

Gravity can 'bring' water down into the house.

The contents of the toilets in an airplane are stored in tanks until the airplane lands and are then extracted into tankers. These then dispose of the contents into the sewage systems at the airports.

There are special toilets designed just for this reason. They have holding tanks built into them with pumps to pump the waste up to the level of the sewer lines.

In the major wars of WW1, WW2, Korea and Vietnam. Smaller short term wars such as the 6 day October '67 war, Yom Kipper War, and India-Pakistani Wars also used tanks which were purchased from other nations; as they didn't build their own tanks during those times.

CHICOM Type 59 medium tanks look indentical to Soviet T54/T55 tanks...but were cheaper to produce, and more affordable for nations to buy; these tanks were heavily exported to nations in the 1970's & 1980's.

They should insulate their house before they insulate their hot water tanks because if the house might be cold they would want to turn on their heater and heat the house. If their heater is on with the water tank that would take up alot of energy.

Until very recently, the system was to let it drop on the tracks. Now it is collected in tanks, just the way they do with airplanes.
