I was thinking that the idea was they put the plug in to keep the water from draining and mix the water right there at the basin?

Actually it is because we invented hot water - you will note that all pipe thread sizes in the US follow even to this day UK standards (BSP) . You will also note that the hot tap is always on the left , and that the wash hand basin is mounted at cock height. A rubber plug is provided to prevent the water running away , and to allow the user the convenience of a copious quantity of water, without excessive waste.

Possibly somewhat confusing for an Indonesian , but to obtain warm water, simply add some cold water to the basin then add hot water to the basin until the desired temperature is obtained . Always add hot water to cold to prevent thermal shock damaging the glaze .

To allow the water to drain away simply remove the plug from the hole in the bottom.

Well clearly the rest of it was fucking confusing.

I mean, how many times have you had a local look at you like you just dropped out of a tree because for suggest something strange like replacing the sump plug before filling the car back up with oil....

For me, still easier to use one single tap in the middle of basin which you can turn to the left if you want hot water, turn to the right if you want cold and stand still in the middle if you want warm. So when your basin is dirty you dont need to worry to have warm water in your hand!

Never see those double tap in Indo anyway...only in UK! shitfan
