  • 2. Description of Prior Art
  • The conventional toilet system in earlier application has been modified with new attachments such as the water sprayers and bidet systems. The attachments also include the plumbing fixtures such as the pipes and fittings for various connections as well as hoses for remote water supply. The water heaters are used for tempered water and valves are connected for control of water flow. The control boxes are located for the toilet users and the nozzles are placed around the toilet bowl. All of these applicable attachments are often visible too much, making the toilet system and attachments less attractive. Therefore, it is desirable to conceal, protect, or decorate these items in part or completely while affording convenience of easy access for installation, operation, and maintenance.
  • There is a toilet accessory for concealing toilet articles disclosed in U.S. Pat. No. 5,040,679 issued to Mary E. Rehmann, which include a decorative figure having an aperture in the lower end for receiving an upstanding rod mounted on a base. Another invention for disguising bathroom tissue rolls and plungers is disclosed in U.S. Pat No. 4,432,451 issued to Oneida O. Hooser. The accessories have been invented for covering toilet articles, but not for the toilet system and its attachments such as the plumbing fixtures, bidets, and sprayers, being substantially different in the purposes and structures. It is an object of the present invention to provide a covering apparatus for the toilet system and attachments partially or completely.
  • The covering apparatus is composed of one or more elements of cord, flat surface, and round surface, which can be assembled or infused individually or collectively with any fasteners and sealers. The-cord includes a wire, rope, or string, which can be used for attachment, connection, or decoration. The flat surface such as a board or panel and the round surface such as a convex or concave section can be used for concealing, masking, disguising, or decoration.

  • The covering apparatus is composed of one or more components of the support elements. The support elements include a base, a foot, a stand, a wheel, or foundation with or without using any kind of fasteners, sealers and hardware. The covering apparatus can be placed on the floor, attached to the toilet system, or hung to the wall or ceiling with a support element. It is further more object of the present invention to provide a covering apparatus having a support element attached to various environments.
  • The covering apparatus is composed of one or more elements of decorative figures. The decorative figure includes a nature such as a natural world or character, wherein the natural world implies scenery or environment and the character implies personality or sprit. The decorative figure also includes a geometric shape, a person, and an animal, wherein the person implies individual or group of people and the animal implies creature such as living thing or monster. Therefore, it is still further object of the present invention to provide a covering apparatus that includes a decorative element such as a nature, geometry, person, or animal figure.
  • The covering apparatus has facility having one or more elements of the toilet system and attachments placed or added on. The facility offers convenience for arrangement and operation of the toilet system and attachments. It also offers an auxiliary storage room for concealing bathroom items. For example, the facility of sprayer holder provides an easy way for placement of the sprayer and the hose rack affords arrangement of hose. Also, the facility makes it easy for operation of the components installed on the covering apparatus. For instance, the valve attached on the top covering apparatus offers a convenient way to control water supply for the sprayer user. Therefore, it is still further more object of the present invention to provide a covering apparatus having facility of the installation, operation, and arrangement of a part of the toilet system and attachments.
