But there's one thing I need to address here that comes from a genuine place of concern — and that is the unholy amount of water you keep stored in the toilet bowl. swagz😎✨🦋 @cocoawagner why is american toilet water so high 11:14 PM - 28 Jul 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @cocoawagner Now, I'm not the first Australian down the years to question this bizarre discovery — in fact, there are a multitude of issues when it comes to the everyday American toilet stall. Bec Shaw @Brocklesnitch Sorry America will never be great until they close the door gaps in their bathroom stalls and lower the toilet water level 12:59 AM - 16 Dec 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @Brocklesnitch Some Aussies have even suggested turning to the nation's political leaders to right this atrocious wrong. David Mack @davidmackau If I were American, I'd vote for whichever candidate supported a law banning ridiculously high toilet water levels.

Matthew T(h)urbo(n) @turbo1975 @Naquicious @cstribs @ImpSenatePod @CMWAshby I think we need to talk about American toilet bowls and their excessive water levels. All those American high school coming-of-age films where nerds get their heads dunked in the toilet... it just wouldn’t be possible in an Aussie dunny. 10:02 AM - 12 Nov 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @turbo1975 Imagine trying this in an Australian toilet. I mean, even my damn dog can't get his tongue to reach the water level. And, as this Australian pointed out, the American loos don't exactly cater to those who are...ahem...well-endowed.
