Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Sept. 19, 1905.
Application filed October 18, 1904. Serial No. 229,040.
To fl/ZZl whom t may concern:
Be it known that I, DAVID D. LAMBERT, a citizen of the United States, residing at New Haven, in the county of New Haven and State of Connecticut, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Fountains, of which the following is a specification, taken in connection vwith the drawings which form a part thereof, and in which similar letters of reference represent like parts.
Figure 1 is a view in perspective, showing my invention in operation. Fig. 2 is a sectional view of the fountain proper; Fig. 3, a detail view of the cock adapted to be attached to the faucet; Fig. 4, a detail sectional view of the same.
In the drawings, A represents a fountain with a faucet attachment, consisting of the faucet-cock A', adjustable tube A2, and fountain proper, A3, as shown in Fig. l. I
The fountain proper, A3, consists of three hollow sections B, B', and B2, the three sections being secured at o and o' by screwthreads in well-known manner. The lower section B consists of an oval base-plate b2, provided near its lower edge with a series of perforations b3 for purposes more fully described hereinafter. The middle section B', which is adapted to be secured to sections B and B2, is provided with a laterally-extending nipple b, to which is adapted to be secured one end of the rubber tubing A2, said nipple being provided with an adjustable valve o to regulate the flow of water through Said fountain. The lower end of the middle section is adapted to be stopped with a removable cork or stopper for the purpose of cleaning, as more fully described hereinafter. The upper section B2 is provided at each end with a bulb o7 and bs, which act as reservoirs and -tend to retard the pressure of the flowof water through the fountain, while the bulb 198 being of spherical shape prevents the mouth or teeth of the user from being injured if the head is pushed down. The lower bulb 177 contains a shoulder b9, where it is adapted to be secured onto the middle section B', and on which is held a removable strainer 610, consisting of wiregauze or some other suitable material.
The iiexible tubing A2 is adapted to have one end secured to the laterally-extending nipple b4 of the fountain proper, A3, and the other 'end to a laterally-extending nipple a of the faucet-cock A'. Said faucet-cock A' consists of a screw-threaded coupling a,
adapted to be screwed on an ordinary faucet and a valve-socket a2, formed integral therewith, in which is adapted to be secured a twoiiow valve-plug a3, as shown in Figs. 3 and 4. The outer edge of said valve-socket a2 is cut away to form shoulders a4 and a5, adapted to come in contact with a laterally-extending lug, formed integral with said valve-plug a3 to limit the turning of the same.
In operation the faucet-cock A' is attached to the faucet in well-known manner and the fountain proper, A3, set upright in a bowl or sink, as desired, and shown in Fig. l. The
water is then turned on in the faucet, and if.
the operator desires to have it flow from the fountain the twoflow valve is turned at right angles with the faucet-cock, which permits the water to iiow through the tubing and upward through the fountain proper and through the upper bulb, the supply going through the fountain proper being governed by the valve in the laterally-extending nipple of middle section thereof. When the operator desires to draw water into the bowl or sink, the two-iiow valve is turned so as to be parallel with the faucet-cock, when the water will iiow from the lower end thereof into the sink, it thus being seen that the use of the fountain attached to the faucet does not interfere with the drawing of water for other purposes into the sink or otherwise. The stream of water as it flows from the upper bulb is of sufficient height to enable the person desiring to drink to place his mouth over the stream without touching the bulb. It will also be understood that to the ordinary faucet not havingthe screw-thread nozzle the tube `itself may be attached without using my faucet-cock. When it is desired to clean the fountain, the cork is withdrawn and the water forced downward through the opening of the upper bulb and out through the bottom of the base in well-known manner, while a more thorough cleansing of the fountain may be made by separating the sections and removing the gauze strainer.
I-Iaving now described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
l. Afountain consisting of a perforated oval base-section; an upright hollow post-section adapted to be screwed into said base-section; a second upright hollow post-section, having formed at its lower end a s herical-shaped screw-threaded bulb, adapted to be screwed onto the upper end of said first-mentioned IOO IIO
hollow post-section, and having formed at itsl upper end a second spherical-shaped bulb, with an orifice in the top thereof; a laterallyextending nipple formed integral with said first mentioned upright post section; and means for connecting said nipple to a watersupply, substantially as described.
2. In a fountain and its connection, the combination with an oval hollow base-section; of an upright hollow post -section adapted to be screwed into said base-section;
a removable plug adapted to fit in the bottoin of said post-section; a second hollow post-section having at its lower end a spherical-shaped screw-threaded bulb, adapted to be screwed onto the upper end of said firstmentioned hollow post-section, and having formed at its upper end a second sphericals'haped bulb, with an orifice in the top thereof; a strainer adapted to fit in said first- Inentioned bulb; a laterally-extending nipple formed integral with said first-mentioned hollow post-section, and a flexible tube one end Of which is adapted to be secured to said nipple and the other end thereof to a faucet, substantially as described.
In Witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand, at New Haven, in the county of New Haven, State of Connecticut, this 27th daltT of September, v1904.
DAVID D. LAMBERT.
