Having problems with my toilet flush and have just managed to get sprayed by the water in the toilet cistern. I'm a bit ocd so just wanted reassurance...it's clean water right? Where does that water come from exactly?!
Whitecherry, I think that may have been coincidence. Unless you have a separate grey water recycling for flushing your Lou - and you would know if so - water for flushing is the same as water from the tap.
However, if at any point something dodgy has taken up residence in the cistern itself - if a cat's somehow dropped in a dead mouse for example (although how they'd get the lid up I don't know) - then yes, in that case, there might be enough bacteria to cause concern.
Oh good, sounds fine. It looks and smells clean, and no sign of a dead mouse. It's just that it sprayed out onto me, and even though it wasn't much, was wondering if it warranted a shower and having to wash my hair!
It's not even the stomach bug that would frighten me. I find toilets in general a bit yuckky (I clean mine thoroughly daily) and for example, always put the lid down to flush because I imagine fine mists of toilet water jumping out and contaminating everything!
