 The Coriolis effect had virtually nothing to do with the direction that water turns as it flows down a plughole, which a reasonable inspection will show you can go in either direction in either hemisphere. The Coriolis force is a very weak force and only has a large impact on a large or long scale. Any asymmetry in your sink, even if very slight, will determine the direction of rotation around the plughole and completely dominate the Coriolis effect. The Coriolis effect had virtually nothing to do with the direction that water turns as it flows down a plughole, which a reasonable inspection will show you can go in either direction in either hemisphere.
