WATER-TANK.

Specification cf Letters Patent.

Patented Dec. 18, 1906.

Application filed Maroh 13, 1906. Seria1No. 305,751.

Be it known that I, CHARLES WILLMS, a citizen 0f thc United States, residing in the city 0'f Baltimore, State 01 Maryland, have invented ccrtain new and uscful Improve- 1nents in "ater-Tanks, 0f which the f 0110W- ing is a specification.

My invention relates especially t0 Watertanks 0f the dass used in connection Wih watcr-closets o1 urinals. Such tanks hzwe heretofore usually bcen 1nade 0f cast metal, which are bulky, curnbcrsome, and unattractive in appearance, 01 cf wood lined With sheet met a1, which are not durable 01 always sanitary, as the varnished Wo0d often be comes stained, 0r if the 1netal lining leaks the wood absorbs watcr.

T hc object cf my invention is t0 providc a light durable tank that may be manufactured economically, may be kept pcrfeczly clean, and Which Will at 2111 times present an attractive appearance.

Thc furniture and fittings in bath-rooms and other toilet-rooms are now t0 a vcry large extent cnameled, thc advantages 0f Which 2uc well known but the tanks are I1OW ahnost universally made cf W00d. I have devised a tank constructed cf metal and enamelcd which possesscs in addition so the usual requisitcs the advantages incideno t0 enmnele-d Ware.

In carrying out my invention I form the water-containing tank cf thin shect metal und enamel it or c0ver it inside and 0ut with vitreous enamel. Such a tank possesscs the advantages above na1ned, but is apt so swcat *ol. e., moisturc Will condensc 011 its exterior and Will either drop 01 run down 011 the Walls 01 objects bclow it 0r in thc casc 01" lowdown tanks Will be rubbed 0fl' by occupants cf the water-closet. F0r this reason 1 prcvide whar. I call a condensation-collector, Which is also enzuneled and receivcs and delivers such water 0f condensation t0 the clcset-bowl.

Thc condcnsationcollector is arrangcd a suitable distance from the tank in oraler t0 leavc an nir-space around it t0 thus prcvcnt condensation 011 ehe outside cf the. collector. Couplings are employcd for clamping ehe tank t0 the condensaon-collector, and the inlct-pipc and thc dischargc-pipe are 0011- nectcd With these couplings. A branch pipc cxtends fro1n thc fiush-water-discharge pipe to the condensation-collcctor and conveys therefrorn any watcr wbich accurnulates therein. Preferably water overflows from the tank thrcugh openings in thc upper porti0n thereof 01 over the t0p, the usual overfloW-pipe being thus dispensed with, and the afterflow-water is conveyed by a pipe frorn the ba11-cock t0 thc space between 'h6 tank and ehe condensation-collecto'r and fiows 01113 through the brauch pipc cf the flush-waterdischarge pipe above referred 110-.

Other features 0f he invention Will be hereinafter more particularly described.

In Ehe accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view cf a lowdown fiushingtank ernbodying rny improvements. Fig. 2 is a pcrspective view 0f the cover of the tank detached. Fig. 3 is a perspectivc view of the tank with the c0ver rcmoved lookingfrom ehe rcar. Fig. 4 is a bottom plan view 0f the cover. Fig. 5 shows a transverse scction 0f the cover 0n the 1ine 5 5 0f Fig. 4. Fig. 6 is a dcnail view in perspcctive, showing particu- 1arly 110W the cover is fitted 00 the condensati0n-collector and 110W it is secured thereto. Fig. 7 shows a vertical transverse secoion through ehe water-co'ntaining tank and illustrates particularly h0W ehe fiush-valve-operating lever is connected therewith. Fig. 8 is a view, 011 an enlarged scale and in scction, showing how the water-containing tank is enameled. Fig. 9 shows 0n enlarged sca1e and in vertical section thc water-containing tank, the condensation-collector and cover assembled, and io also shows ehe mechanism within the tank f0r supplying water thereto and discharging it therefrom. Fig. 10 is a view in perspective and 0n an enlarged scale cf the connection bctween the discharge-pipe cf thc water-containing tank and thc co'ndensation-collector whereby the water cf condensation, water overflowing from the water-containing tank, and the aftcrflowwater may be conveycd fr01n the condensation-collector t0 the discharge-pipe. Fig. 11 is a t0p plan view 0f 011e of the co1iplings employed for connccting the condensation-collcctor With its outlet-pipc.

The water-containing tank A is preferably made from a single piece of sheet metal, such as shect-stecl, and without searn. Thc rim a is formed in the 1nanner clearly shown in Figs. 7 and 8 by bending the material outwardly and downwardly and causing the bent-over portion 0f the metal 130 stand out from the body portion 0f the tank a space a the closebbowl. The conneccion Q is always open, it contains 110 valve 0f any kind, and is free from all obstruction. Its capacity is sufficient to immediately carry ofl any water that passes 130 the condensation-collector, whether it be fr01n condensation, overflow, 0r afterflow fron1 the pipe n or whether water accumulates fr01n all three 0f these sources ab once.

I have described. 1ny invention as ernbodi@d in apparatus which I have found t0 be entirely pracicable and which is the best way now known t01ne of carrying out nny invention. Some parts may be used in conneetion with other parts diflering in construction from those herein iliustrated and described.

' 1 d0 n0t herein claim, broadly, a flush-tank in combination with a case in which it is c0ntained and f10n1 which it is slightiy separated and a flush pipe opening inclependently ino each of said case and tank eIemen-ts, 1101 a flush-tank within a case, ehe case being const'ructed to take ehe overflow from the tank, and a 'flush-pipe in comrnunication with the case and opening into ehe tank, as such subjectnnatter is clairned in my ear]ier applications, Serial N0. 27 3,929, filed August 12,1905,and Serial N0. 286,002, fi1ed November 6, 1905.
