Feb. 8, 1944. v. A. HOFFMANN TOILET BOWL Filed Feb. 25, 1942 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Patented Feb. 8, 1944 U'NlTED STATES TENT OFFICE- 10 Claims.
This invention relates to an improved stack hung toilet bowland has for one of its principal objects the provision of means for economically producing a highly efficient and exceptionally sturdy device of the kind referred to.
Another and further important object of advantage and'importance resides in the provision of means for eliminating excessive operating noises.
Still another object of advantage and importance resides in the provision of means for directing floating objects away from the lip of the discharge opening when the device is operating.
A further object of advantage and importance resides in the provision of means for extending overflow and vent means from the bottom of the bowl to a discharge stack.
Another and still further object of importance is the provision of means for providing a refill chamber within a portion of the intake passageway.
A still further object of advantage and importance is the provision of means for flushing the lower end of the vent and overflow passage- Additional objects of advantage and importance will become apparent as the following detailed description progresses, reference being had to the accompanying drawings wherein l is a side elevational view of a stack hung toilet bowl which embodies the invention.
Fig. 2is a top plan view, with the seat and cover removed, of the structure shown in Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is a transverse vertical section taken on line 33 of Fig. 2, looking in the direction indicated by the arrows.
Fig. 4 is a similar vertical section of a slightly modified form of the invention.
Fig. 5 is a longitudinalvertical section taken on line 5 -5 of Fig, 4, parts thereof being broken away.
Fig. 6 is a vertical section taken on line 65 of Fig. 4, of a iragmental portion of the device looking in the direction indicated by the arrows.
As shown in the drawings:
The reference numeral It indicates generally the bowl of the improved device of this invention. In the preferred embodiment of the invention the bowl It is substantially oval in plan formation, as is best shown in Fig. 2.
Formed of the rear portion of the improved device of this invention is a vertically disposed attaching member iii. The attaching member I? is connected to the bowl it) by means of an intermediate member it as is best shown in Figs. 1 and 2.
Extending around the rim of the bowl H) and rearwardly through the intermediate member i l and thencerthrough the securing member i2 is an inletpassageway 56; The-end of the inlet passageway it which extends through the securing member i2 is adapted to be secured to a continuation l3 thereof as is best shown in Figs. 1 and 2.
A suitable gland 26 positioned on the continuation I8 is secured in position by the threaded rods This coupling functions to form a water tight joint between the passageway it and the continuation l8 thereof. However, any other suitable means such as packing cups or recesses may also be employed to obtain a tight joint.
Extending downwardly from the bottom of the bowl ill closely adjacent the rear end thereof, and thence rearwardly and upwardly through the intermediate member Hi and the attaching member 52 is a discharge passageway 25. The portion of the discharge passageway 24 here disclosed has its discharge end raised to elevate the lower end of the securing flange 12 to provide sufficient clearance above the floor. However, the discharge end of the passageway 24 is low enough to bring the entire jointbelow the normal water level or the bowl. The connection or joint between the discharge passageway 24 and a continuation secured thereto is water sealed. The discharge passageway 24 and a continuation associated therewith is more fully disclosed and its function described in my co -pending application Ser. No. 364,175, filed November 4, 1940, now matured into Patent No, 2,280,952.
The continuation of the discharge passageway 25 is maintained in position by threaded rods 255 operating in conjunction with the securing member 52 and the flange 28. The threaded rods 22 and 28 are provided with removable heads 21 in order that they may be employed in the limited space allowed between the rear end of the seat 23, the rear end of the bowl NJ, and the'front face of the securing member i2.
Formed in the portion of the intake passageway it which extends through the intermediate.
portion id of the device isrefill recess 3?. The refill recess 38 is preferably formed by offsetting a portion of the floor of the pasageway 16, as is best shown in Figs. 1 and 5. The passageway 56 may be contracted as at ll to lessen the volume and pressure of water passing therethrough. This lessening of volume and pressure tends to eliminate noise as the water is discharged through the outlets it into the bowl W.-
Extending downwardly from the intake passageway it through the rear lip of its discharge opening is a passageway 32. When in operation the passageway 32 functions to direct a stream of water against the flow of water being discharged from thebowl to create a vortex. Floating'residue and the like is thus carried downwardly and prevented fromcontacting or adhering'to the rearlip ofthe discharge opening. Th
passageway 32 .isipreierably positioned, .as-isbest.
shown in Fig. 5, to direct water under full pressure and volume into the bowl l0.
Extending from the discharge passageway 24 upwardly and rearwardly through the securing member i2 is a siphon breaker vent passageway 34. The vent passageway 34 is adapted to be connected to a stack in the manner disclosed in the patent above referred to. The vent 34 provides a means for conveying air from the stack into the passageway .24 closely adjacent the bowl in. The admission of air at this point below the water level breaks the siphon action before the water in the bowl is lowered sufficiently to break the seal. Consequently, air from the roomside cannot enter the passageway to break the siphon action. This maintenance of the water seal between the bowl and the discharge passageway prevents any noise of operation from passing from the discharge passageway into the bowl.
Extending from the discharge passageway 2 rearwardly and upwardly through securing memher I! is an overflow passageway 36. The overflow passageway 36 is adapted to be extended to a stack in the manner shown and disclosed in the patent above referred to. The lower end of the overflow passageway 36 is preferably connected to the discharge passageway 2d at a point directly beneath its opening into the bowl I0, as is best shown in Figs. 1, 2, and 3.
Where it is so desired the discharge ends of the passageways extending through the attaching member I 2 may be secured to their respective continuations by any suitable means such as separate cups and gaskets or the like. Or a single perforated gasket may be utilized to provide a water tight joint between opposing faces of the attaching membe l2 and a securing plate.
Extending downwardly from the bottom of the refill chamber 30 is a pair of refill passageways 38, 38. The lower ends of the refill passageway 38 may terminate one in the vent passageway 34 and the other in the overflow passageway 36, as is best shown in Fig. 3. Each refill passageway 38 during operation of the device directs a flow of water through the lower end of the passageway with which it is associated. This action tends to remove from the passageway any residue which may have entered prior to the flushing operation.
In the slightly modified form of the invention shown in Figs. 4, 5, and 6, vent and overflow facilities are obtained through a single passageway 40. Also the modified form of the invention shows a single refill passageway 38 extending from the refill chamber 38 into the passageway 30. The action of the elements in the modified form of the invention are precisely the same as in the preferred embodiment.
It will be apparent from the foregoing that herein is provided an improved device which when discontinuing, the siphon action of the flushing operation draws the siphon breaking air from the stack instead of from the room. This manner of breaking the siphon seal eliminates the gurgling sound invariably present in conventional toilet bowls.
Furthermore, it will be apparent that the improved device of this invention is constructed with an overflow element which reduces to a minimum the danger of the bowl overflowing on account of obstructions in the discharge passageway. Moreover, it is to be noted that a portion of the flushing water is directed through the lower end of the overflow passageway thus preventing obstructions or foreign matter from entering therein. However, the overflow passageway operates as such only when the discharge passageway is clogged up or inoperative.
It is also to be noted that the improved device of this invention provides a means for preventing floating matter or the like from clinging or adhering to the lip at the rear edge of the discharge opening. During the flushing operation water is directed from the lip outwardly toward the center of the bowl and across the upper portion of the discharge opening. The conflicting currents set up a rotative movement or whirl which quickly submerges all floating matter and conveys it through the discharge passageway.
It will also be apparent to those skilled in the art to which the improved device of this invention appertains that numerous changes and alterations in construction and design may be made without departing from the spirit, or scope of the invention. Accordingly, the patent granted hereon is not to be limited to the preferred embodiment here shown or in any other manner except as is necessitated by the terminology of the appended claims when given the range of equivalents to which they may be entitled.
