DANIEL J. REESE, 0F SCRANTON, PENNSYLVANIA. v
DRAIN-PIPE JEL USHEB.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed June 5, 1914. Serial No. 343,291.
Be it known that l, DANIEL J. REESE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Scranton, in the county of Lackawanna and State of Penns lvania, have invented a new and useful Drain-Pipe Flusher, of which the following is a specification.
The present invention appertains to a flushing device for the drain, waste and overflow pipes of sinks, wash bowls, bath tubs, and the like, and aims to provide a novel and improved appliance of that nature which is peculiarly adapted for cleaning or clearing out the outlet pipes of sinks, wash bowls, bath tubs and, the like.
Another object of the present invention is to provide a flushing device of unique construction, which is adapted for connectionwith a faucet, or other source of water, whereby the greasy matter, sediment, and other refuse within a drain or discharge .pipe may be washed out, the present device also being adapted to serve as a pump or suction device for dislodging any obstruction that tends to plug up the drain pipe.
A further object of the present invention .is to provide a flushing device, including novel means for creating a whirling motion of the stream of water, to facilitate the clearing of the drain pipe.
. It is also within the scopeof the present invention to provide a device of the nature specified, which will be comparatively simple, and inexpensive in construction, as well as being simple, practical, serviceable and eflicient in use.
With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed, can be made within the scope of what is claimed, without departing from the spirit of the invention.
The invention has been illustrated in its preferred embodiment in the accompanying drawing, wherein 2- Fe 1 IS a sectional view of the improved flushing device, the hose or flemble portion being broken away. Fig. 2 is a reduced View of the device as applied to a wash bowl. Fig. dis a cross section of the device, taken on the line 3 -3 of Fig. 1.
ln out the present invention,
rubber or other flexible material, and having its mm or margin provided with an inturned annular flange or lip 2 adapted to conform to the surface of a sink, wash bowl, bath tub, or the like, and to provide an effective seal or closure when the bell 1 is applied to a sink, wash bowl or the like, over-the drain Patented Sept. 15, 1914. I
there is provided a bell 1, constructed of is flared, as at 7, while the upper or butt end of the nozzle is provided with an annular enlarged and threaded portion 8 above the tubular or collar portion 3 of the bell. Disposedwithin .the nozzle 4, is a spiral or helical web or member 9 which is integral with a longitudinal or axial spindle or stem 10 disposed within the nozzle 4. The spiral member 9 is shaped to conform snugly to the interior of the nozzle 4, the lower end of the spiral member 9 and its stem 10 being slightly flared or enlarged, as at 11 within the flared mouth 7 of the nozzle 4, to cause the stream of water issuing from the nozzle 4 to spread.
In order to mount. the spiral member 9 within the nozzle 4, a flat ring 12, with which the upper end of the spiral member 9 is integral, 1S seated upon the upper end 8 of the nozzle 4, and is provided with the opening 13 above the upper end of the spiral member 9. The ring 12 is clamped or seated upon the upper end 8 of the nozzle 4 by means of a union or nut 14 having a lower threaded socket 15 threadedly engaging over the upper end of the nozzle and seating upon the ring 12. The union or nut 14 18 provided with an upstanding nipple 16, projecting away from the socket 15, and adapted to receive thereover, one end of a hose 1'3 of suitable length. The end of the hose 1'? is clamped upon the nipple 16, by 3 1. of a band 18 embracing the hose 1? about the nip 1e 16. The tubular or collar portion 3 of t e hell 1 is preferably clamped about the body portion of the nozzle 4 by me of a band 19 embracing the tubular portion 3.
The construction of the present flushing. device is such, that it is adapted for appli cation to various styles of sinks, wash basins, bath tubs, and other fixtures, to'clean out various sizes and shapes of drain, waste and overflow pipes. As an illustration of a particular application of the device, reference being had. to Fig. 2, the free end of the hose 17 may be applied to the faucet 20 of a wash bowl 21, and the rim or margin of the bell 1 is adapted to snugly fit the interior of the bowl 21 surrounding the drain outlet or pipe 22, it being observed that when the central tubular portion 3 of the bell 1 is pressed toward the bowl, the flange or lip 2 of the bell will be caused to'tightly fit the' bowl or basin 21 to eflect a perfect closure between the bell 1 and bowl. Now, when the faucet 20 is opened, to admit water into the hose 1?, the water being under pressure, will be forced through the nozzle 4 and into the drain pipe 22. The spiral member or drain pipe. By pressing the bell 1 down. wardly, the tip or mouth 7 of the nozzlemay be projected into the end of the drain pipe, the usual strainer or sieve havin been removed, whereby the action of the water within the drain pipe 22 will even be mo're efiective.
Another salient or cardinal feature of the present invention, resides in the fact that when the water hasbeen let into the hose 17,?
I I bell 1 and drain pipe 22, the faucet 20 may be closed, and then y reciprocating the central portion of the hell 1, a pumping or sucking action may be established thropgh 'with equal success and propriety to other fixtures, such as kitchen sinks, bath tubs, and the like, and is convenient and practical in its use, as well as being sanitary and simple.
Having thus described the invention,what is claimed as new is 1 1. In a deviceof the character described, a bell, a nozzle projectin thereinto, the nozzle being contracted a jacent its inner end and the inner endof the nozzle being fiared,'and a spiralmember mounted within the nozzle and conforming to the interior thereof, the inner end of the spiral member being flared within the flared inner end of the nozzle.
2. In a device of the character described, a
bell, a nozzle projecting thereinto, a spiral j member disposed within the nozzle and having a portion at its outer-end seating against the outer end of the nozzle, and means en member disposed within the nozzle and having a ring at its outer end seating agamst the outer endof the nozzle, and a socket nut threaded upon the outer end of the nozzle to clamp the said ring thereagainst, and hav-- ing a hose' attaching nipple.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as as hell, a nozzle projecting thereinto, a spiral my own, I have hereto afiixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
