G. E. ROHMER CONSTRUCTION OF SWIMMING POOL WATER SLIDES Filed March 30, 1925 I0 16 v F 14 2 1 Patented ,rNova 8; -1927.

UNITED STATES GABRIEL E. ROHMER, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

CONSTRUCTION OF SWIMMING-POOL WATER SLIDES.

Application filed March 30, 1825.

While I am aware that slides are used by bathers and swimmers, no apparatus has come to my attention which as a constant stream of water spraying the slide surface of the apparatus; therefore the object of the present invention is to provide a water slide, embodying means which will allow a relatively thin stream of water to constantly spray the sliding surface of the slide, the water spray furnishing the sliding means impinging the body of the bather in rapid downward sliding motion.

With these objects in view, my invention comprises the novel features, combinations and arrangements of parts, hereinafter more fully described, with reference to the accompanying drawings in whigh Figure (1) is a cross section elevation of a preferred type of my water slides. Figure (2), its plan view, while Figures (3 and 4) illustrate the water slide trough embodying a different method v of spraying the water on the sliding surface of the trough itself.

Similar reference numbers indicate corresponding parts throughout the different figures.

Figures (1 and 2) illustrate the cross section and plan view of a water slide built like a trough.

To facilitate the erection of the apparatus, the trough is preferably made in unit lengths (l23-4 and 5). The combination of those unit lengths being appropriately designed to form a sliding curved surface best adapted to impinge a sliding body in a rapid downward sliding motion.

The longitudinal sides (6 and 7) of the ater slide are curved inwardly, thus forming a trough of appropriate shape, adapted to act as a safety guide to the rapidly moving body of the bather.

The top section of the water slide (1), properly supported on top of the column (8). has an overflow water trough (9) running the full width of the apparatus. In this overflow water trough is cut a longitudinal opening (10). forming the outlet of the water stream spraying the sliding surface (11). At one side the pipe (12) is provided as means for bringing the water supply to the overflow trough, while the valve (13) affords means for regulating the intensity of the overflow.

The top sectionof the water slide (1) is also ptr ided with a flat surface (4), i113 Serial No. 19,390.

mediately adjacent to the water trough, but of a level relatively higher than the overflow outlet of the water trough; this flat surface acts as a darn for the overflow stream and is also intended as a. rest platform, enabling the bather to engage his body in the trough with the least possible exertion.

A platform (15) surrounded by the protecting rails (16), is arranged at the base of the water slide section (1) at a height conveniently calculated to enable the bather to easily overbalance his body into the sliding trough. while the ladder runs (17) permit access to the platform.

The sections (23 and 4) forming the runs of the water slide have rubber gaskets (18) bolted in-between the flange'joints (19) to insure the perfect waterproofing of the apparatus and the base (5) is provided with outlet means leading the water flow into the pipe (20) to a waste water outlet.

In order to promote an easy outgoing flow of the waste water, the base unit (5) has an inclined surface (21) leading to a fiat funnel shaped duct (22). This duct can also be used as an overflow for the water contained in the swimming pool (23) near which my water slides will preferably be erected.

In Figures (3 and 4), I have illustrated another embodiment of my invention showing a different method of spraying the sliding surface of my apparatus. In this case. the pipes (24) are located within each upper rounded edge (6 and 7) of the trough (25) and run the full length ofthe water slide. The holes (26) are conveniently located along the length of the pipes to furnish a well fed stream of water on the sliding surface (11).

I favor most particularly the type of construction illustrated in the drawings, making the whole structure self supporting through the flanges (19). thus eliminating structural shape frames commonly used in dry slides in childrens play grounds.

In Figure (1) I have illustrated how my water-slide is used by bathers; reference number (27) showing a bather'overbalancing himself over the top of the water slide, while reference number (28) illustrates another bather in the act of sliding down under the slippery action of the water stream discharged by the trough (9).

a I haveillu'strated two preferred and satis factory forms of my iuvenfiit ii; liiit it is eb= viousthat changes may bemade, and embodiments evolved which would still be within the-spiritaand scope thereof as defined i-nthe appended claims.

I claim:

1. In a water slide, in the form of a trough, an overflow duct atthe high point of said waterslide and means for draining the overflow water at the bottom of said water slide.

,2.,In a water slide, in the form of ,a trough, moans ;provided within eachupper dangitudinalledge of saidwvater slide-adapt- .ed to induce a water-stream on the sliding surface of said water slide, and .means for draining-said water stream at the'bot-tom. of said water slide.

3..A water slide built. in sections, overflowing means in the vupper section, inter- (mediate sections iformingthe run of said weater-slide: and a base section, said hasesec- ;tioni.having drainage means.

4. A water slide built-in sections, overflowing-n'ieans in the upper section, inter v-mediate-sections forming the run of said :waterslicle .andabase section having drain- .a gemean -eacih of said sections'being pro- Aiided with connecting flanges substantially strongenorgh to support the full Weight of said Water slide.

5-A1trough for a Water slide comprising a flat slidingportion, and 7 two .upward' por itions, saidaipiward ,portion being curved inwardly and afiordingsafety-guiding means I [for .bathers.

6. In-a water .slide on upper member having overflowing means for :a fluidflow :and 2a flat surface-above said overflowing-means, saidflat surtace acting asva dam for said stavtingvpointiorbathers.

8;,Inra water slide ouilt in sections, overflowing means in the upper section, means for regulating the intensity of the fluid flow,

intermediate sections forming the run of said fluid; flow and a base section;

9. In a water slide built in sections, overflowing means in the upper section, means for regulating theintensity of the fluid flow, intermediate sections forming the run of said fluid flow and a base section, said base section having drainage means.

10. In a water slide an upper member having overflowing vmeans for a fluid :flow, a flat surface above said overflowing means, said flat surface acting .asanover-balancing :and starting: point .forubathers and platform means adjacent said upper member.

11. Ina-\va ter slide an upper member. having overflowing means for a fluid flow, ,a flatsurface above .and adjacent said overflowing means, saidflat surface actin asan overbalancing and starting pointfor athers -and platform means adjacent said upper member, said platform meansbeinglocated below said overbalancingfla-t surface.

12. ,A-water slide comprising a trough. and a platform, means to induce a fluid flow along the entire sliding surface of said troiwli, means for regulating the intensity oft 1e rflow and means for evacuating the flow, said platform being adjacent to the .upper end-of the trough andacting as an overhalancingandstartmg, point for bathers.

13. Awater slide comprising a trough and a platform, means to induce:.a ffluid flow along the entire :sliding surface of said trough, means for regulating, localizing and draining said fluid flow, said platform being adjacent to the upper-end of the trough-and acting as an overbalaneingand starting point for hathers.
