does water swirl the other way in different hemisphere

have you ever notice the swirl in the toilet when you flush it? if you are in the northern hemisphere then you will notice that the water swirls anti-clockwise which is correct because of the rotation of the earth

but in the southern hemisphere the swirl rotates clockwise because of the earths rotation

then comes another question what if you are in 0 degree latitude. the answer is that the water will not swirl at all, it will just fall down
