Default Re: Belling electric fire, all three bars work.

It helped your lateral thinking too. Although we dud have an inside WC, for baths we had the tin bath that dad used to have to carry upstairs on bath night. Mum used to fill with it water from the gas boiler, and emptying was bailing out using a large saucepan. After I learned about the syphon in physics at school, I used to empty it using the garden hose as a syphon, running it out of the window to discharge in the outside drain. My first practical application of science!
