• Welcome

    Thank you for visiting varrecchia.com. My name is Ben Varrecchia and I have owned this domain and website since 2007. I haven\'t done much with it but would like this to be a place for Varrecchia\'s around the world to access. I believe the biggest benefit will be offering email addresses to Varrecchia\'s only. So anyone can have an email address like mine (ben@varrecchia.com). It looks pretty professional and you can all say you are a part owner of the site because that\'s what I envision. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas, please let me know.

In older U.S. models from the 1950s, the entire tub rolled out when the machine latch was opened, and loading/removing washable items was from the top, with the user reaching deep into the compartment f…

    • Toilet Functions

      A flush toilet disposes of our waste products by using water to send them through a drainpipe to another location. It is sometimes called a water closet, or WC. The picture below shows a typical toilet. The toilet bowl usually has a ring-shaped seat on top, which is covered by the lid when not in use. The handle'/button, is pressed to flush the toilet. The water used for flushing is stored in th…
