stood that changes in UNITED S WILLIAM U. GRIFFITHS, OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA.
FLUSH-TANK FOR WATER-CLOSET APPARATUS.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, WILLIAM U. GRIF- FITI-IS, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Philadelphia, in the county of Philadelphia and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Flush-Tanks for Water- Closet Apparatus, of which the following is a specification. 7
My invention relates to improvements in flush tanks for flushing water closet hoppers and the like, and it has for. its object tov provide an improved construction of meansfor starting the siphonic action of a siphon situated in the flush tank.
A further object of my invention is to provide a construction which is simple and therefore may be economically manufactured, and one which also is efficient and positive in its action.
In the accompanying drawing I have illustrated one form of a convenient embodiment of my invention, but it will be underthe details of construction may be made within the scope of the claim without departing from the same.
In the drawing I have shown a water closet apparatus embodying my invention, the flush tank and a portion of the adjacent mechanism being shown in-vertical longitudinal section, while the water closet bowl or hopper and other associated mechanism are shown in side elevation.
Referring to the drawing, 1 designates a water closet hopper or bowl and 2 a valve mechanism for controlling the flow of water from the source of supply through a pipe 3 to the flush tank 4:. The valvemechanism is controlled by means of a vertical rod 5 op.- erated by the seat 6 when the "latter is depressed. The seat is normally held in raised position, as shown in the drawings, by means of a weighted arm or lever 7, the rear end of which is adapted to bear against and raise or lift a vertical rod'8 when the seat is depressed downwardly upon the upper edge of the water closet bowl. The rod 8 is guided in its vertical movements in a well known manner. The upper end of the rod 8 projects into a chamber 9 formed at the lower end of the long leg of a1 siphon 10. The siphon is situated in the flush tank 4 in the usual and known manner.
11v designates a chamber or receptacle which is situated in the chamber 9 and is Specification of Letters Patent.
secured in position by means of screws 12,.
one only of which is shown, which engage a flange 13 formed upon the siphon structure. The screws 12 extend through flanges lL upon the outer edge of the receptacle or chamber .11. The bottom of the receptacle or chamber is provided with an opening 14, while the top is provided with an opening 15; The opening 14 is adapted to be closed lows: Then the seat 6 is depressed, it contacts with the upper end of the rod 5 to position the valves in the mechanism 2 so as to permit water to flow into the tank 4; and fill the same. At the same time, the rod 8 is moved upwardly, its upper end contacting with the valve 16 to cause the same to close theopening 14c. Simultaneously, the opening 15 is opened. Consequently when the water has reached a level in the tank which is above the plane of the top of the receptacle or chamber 11, water flows into the latter through the opening 15 to fill the same. When the seat 6 returns to the position illustrated in the drawing, the rod 8 drops down into the position also illustrated in the said drawing, permitting the valve 16 to open the opening 14, and simultaneously closing the opening 15. The water which has been collected in the receptacle or chamber 11 flows out through the opening 14:. The quantity of water in the receptacle or chamber 11 is suflicient to start siphonic action. The result is that the water is dis- Iatented June 8, 1915.

- siphon 10 and the flush tank pipe 2-0 into the water closet hopper or bowl, in the usual manner, to flush and cleanse the same.
I claim In a flushing apparatus for water closets, the combination of a siphon having an enlarged portion constituting a part of its longer leg, said siphon being situated in a flush tank, a receptacle situated in the enlargedportion of the said siphon, the top and bottom of the said receptacle each having an opening therethrough, the opening in the top communicating with the flush tank and the opening in the bottom communieating with the longer leg of said siphon, in testimony that I claim the'foregoing valves for closing the said openings, means as my invention, I have hereunto signed my extending through the said receptacle and narne this 20th day of August, A. D. 1913.
