SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 718,932, dated January 20, 1903.
i Application filed November 13,1902. Serial No. 131,261. (No model.)
To @ZZ whom, it may concern,.-
Be it known that I, BENJAMIN F. HUDsoN, a citizen of the United States,residing at Rockport, in the county of Aransas and State of Texas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Stock-Watering Pools; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to stock-watering pools; and it consists of a pool composed of a plurality of sheet-metal sections which are suitably secured together to form water-tight joints, said sections being of a suitable length and height to constitute the wall of the pool and permit a portion of the said wall to be embedded in the earth a suitable distance to prevent seepage and allow the upper edge of the wall to project a suitable distance above the surface of the earth, so that stock can approach the pool from any side and drink from the same without difficulty, the surface of the earth forming the bottom of the pool.
The object of my invention is the production of a portable stock-watering pool the Wall of which can be transported from place to place and readily set up and which when in position will hold the water and prevent leakage and form a convenient approach to the pool by the stock and egress therefrom.
A further object of my invention is the production of a pool, preferably from sections of sheet metal, of a height and length to produce a pool of any desired dimensions and which sections are designed to be secured together in such manner as to not only hold the water, but also to enable the pool to be readily transported to another location.
Another object of my invention is the construction of a stock-watering pool in which the surface of the earth forms the bottom of the pool and in which the wall of the pool is composed of sheet metal, a portion of the wall being embedded in the earth a suitable distance and the upper portion projecting above the surface of the earth.
My invention also consists in certain other novel constructions, combinations, and arrangements of parts, as will be hereinafter fully described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is a perspective view of a watering-pool constructed in accordance with my invention. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of a portion of the pool, showing two sections of the Wall of the pool. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of one of the sections constituting the wall of the pool. Fig. 4t is a top plan or edge View of two sections, showing one means for securing the sections together.
Several methods are now in vogue for watering stock, such as the employment of an elevated cypress or galvanized-iron tank and piping leading from said tank to troughs suitably located about the ranch or farm, another method being to build a circular dam and collecting Water in the same and drawing the water from said dam to troughs, and still another method is to make an excavation and drive the stock into the same, all of which methods are open to serious objections which it is not necessary to discuss. My invention is designed to overcome these objections and secu re for the ranchman or stock-raiser a pool which is simple in its construction and operation, which can be produced at slight cost, which can be readily set up, and which Will enable stock of different sizes to readily approach the pool and drink from the same without liability of getting into or falling into said pool or the water becoming contaminated in any Way.
1 in the drawings represents the wall of the pool, which preferably consists of a plurality of sections 2 2, which sections are preferably constructed of sheet metal of a height, say, preferably about thirty-six inches and of a length according to the size of the pool to be constructed. These sections are preferably overlapped and secured together in any suitable manner to secure a Water-tight joint and to resist the outward pressure of the water contained in the pool. In bringing the ends of the sections together the ends of each section are preferably alternately brought inside and outside of the next adjoining section. One manner 0f securing the ends of the sections together is shown in Fig. 4 of the drawings, in which the sections are secured together by a bolt and nut 3, a suitable packing, as 4, being preferably placed in between the ends of the sections, and I preferably employ inaddition thereto a compressible washer, as 5, which is applied to the inside of the tank between the head of the bolt and the inner surface of the tank, so that the joints will be self-sealed when the nut is fully tightened up. I do not Wish, however, to limit myself to an overlapped joint or any particular means of securing the water-tight joint; but this is one practical means and is the one preferred by me. By this construction and arrangement the sections can be readily put together and as readily disconnected when desired and conveniently transported to another location.
The essential featureof my invention consists in constructing a pool of sheet-metal sections, a portion of the height of Whichsay about one half-is embedded in the ground and the other portion projecting above the surface of the ground, and in having the surface of the ground forming the bottom of the pool. This construction differs Widely from an ordinary embankment of earth thrown up, as is obvious, and also from a wall constructed of stonework or masonry, for the reason that in such latter construction, in order to have the Wall of sufficient strength, it would have to be made so thick that small stock, and, in fact, all stock, would be prevented from gaining access to the Watering-tan k, especiallyif the Water was low, and in addition to this in some sections of the countryit would be practically impossible to secure sufficient rocks and stone for this purpose, and, furthermore, the expense Would be much greater than with my device, and a stone Wall cannot be said to be portable in the sense that my wall is portable. It also differs Widely from a tank constructed of staves, for the reason that staves shrink When exposed to the sun and the water leaks through the openings, and where staves are set in the 'ground they also soon decay and the tank falls to pieces.
In order to retain the water within the pool, I form a coating of mud or clay, as at 8, in the bottom of said pool by stirring up the earth and mixing it with water and allowing it to settle, which I have found by experience forms a complete seal against the escape of the water.
In order to prevent stock from falling into the poolv or from Walking into the same, I provide a suitable fence or guard, as 6, as
1. A stock-watering pool, composed of a v plurality of sheet-metal sections of suitable length and height, the sections being embedded in the earth a suitable distance and with the upper portion of the sections projecting above the surface of the earth, the surface of the earth inclosed by the sections forming the bottom of the pool, substantially as described.
2. A portable stock-watering pool, composed of a plurality of sections of suitable height and length and suitably secured together to form Water-tight joints, the sections being embedded in the earth but with the upper edge of the sections projecting above the surface of the earth, the surface of the earth forming the bottom ofthe pool, and the means for securing the sections of the pool together being designed to be removed so that the tank can be knocked down and transported in an unassembled condition, substantially as described.
3. A portable stock-watering pool, comprising in its construction a plurality of sheetmetal sections having their edges overlapping one another and secured together to form a circular tank by means of abolt and nut, and a suitable packing and a compression-washer so as to form water-tight joints, y
the lower portion of the sections being embedded in the earth and the upper sections thereof projecting above the surface of the earth, the surface of the earth forming the bottom of the pool, substantially as described.
4. A stock-watering pool composed of a plurality of sheet-metal sections secured together to form water-tight joints, the lower portion of the sections being embedded in the earth, and the upper portions projecting above the surface of the earth, the surface of the earth constituting the bottom of the pool, and a layer of puddled earth on top of the surface of the ground within the inclosure of the pool, substantially as described.
In'testimony whereof I hereunto affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
BENJAMIN F. HUDSON.
