Some people still talk about the infamous Turkish toilet, despite the fact that flat toilets are common throughout Asia and the Baltics. Modern builds rarely have them unless requested but you will still find them in older builds. In some properties for sale in Turkey you will find they have both. What is the problem with the Turkish toilet or squat toilet? I really do not know other than for Europeans they are an unknown and not something they have experience in using. They might be a bit of a challenge at first but you do adapt to them, although for slightly older generation the actually ‘squatting’ is a physical problem. Easy to keep clean and once use to them you might even find you have a preference for them. In fact raised toilets could be found in Roman times but forget about privacy, if you visit any of the ruins of Roman civilisation, like Ephesus, you will find that using the toilet was a communal experience!
If while you are looking around for your property for sale in Turkey and you come across one of these take note of this tip. Remove mobile phones and other loose objects from pockets before using! If you know you are going to be travelling or viewing in the older areas, then it is also recommended you carry some toilet tissue and sanitary hand wash.
Another point to remember when you are searching for your property for sale in Turkey is that while the city’s drains may have been modernised, the drains of the property for sale in Turkey you are viewing might not have been. What this mean is no other waste, paper etc. can be flushed down the toilets without causing blockages as the plumbing would have been designed for the squat toilet and where water is used for cleaning so unprepared for toilet paper.
You will find in most of the modern property for sale in Turkey both new and renovated, that the European style commode toilet will be in situ. The range and styles is as wide as you will find in Europe, modern bathroom suites being very attractive and eco-friendly. Most new toilets will have a double flush in order to conserve water. Some you use by depressing the button to start the flush and then again to stop. In a public toilet you may see the sign, "Please help us save water! Push flush button twice," seems a bit contradictory until you understand the why of it.
