Some people believe that the Coriolis force affects the flow of water down the drain in sinks, bathtubs or toilet bowls. Unfortunately, the Coriolis force is too weak to affect in those cases. The direction of rotation in draining sinks and toilets is determined by the any small asymmetry of the shape of the drain.

But if you have enough amount of water and you could eliminate side effects than you will be able to see Coriolis Effect.
