Default Coriolis Force

This is more for our members in the Southern Hemisphere, like Australia. I have a sump pit for water, and over the past several years, I have been watching which water the current in the pit develops when the pump is turned on. I understand that this means I have way too much time on my hands, and also that I have a very strange sense of curiosity. The pit is about 2 feet in diameter, and about 4 feet deep. So far, every time that I have watched it, the current has rotated in an anti-clockwise direction, as it would if it was being effected by the Coriolis Force.

Now, my question for our troops in the Southern Hemisphere is, does water is such a pit rotate in a clockwise direction?

I march to my own set of bagpipes. Caution: This individual thinks that studying logistics is FUN.

They that go down to the sea in ships,
that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the LORD,
and his wonders in the deep.
