WATER'AND' soAP s'AvINe DEVICE.

Application ffuemotober 29, 1927. serial No. 229,726. p

lo serve that which is now wasted. It is the object of my'invention to provide a novel means for attainlng this end..

The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing forming a part of thisV l application.

Fig. 1 of the drawing is a side elevation partly broken away and in section, showing my inventionV in connection with a kitchen sink. Y v 2o Y Fig. 2 is a view similar to Fig. l but illustrating the invention in connection with a sink and a bath tub above said sink.

Fig. 3 is a view similar to Figs. 1 and 2 but showing the invention in connectionwith a washing machine and a laundry tub.

In Figs. 1 and 2, theV numeral 4 denotes a kitchen sink, 5 has reference to the usual y stack or other pipe leading to the sewer, and 6 denotes the waste pipe from sink to stack, said waste. pipe embodying the usual trap 7.

Below the sink 4,'preferably in the basement, is al closed water-collecting tank 8.

.Leading to this tank from the trap 7, is a` water-conducting pipe 9 having a. cutoff valve 10. This pipe 9 communicates with the trap 7 at a pointl'l between the lowest point of the trap and the outlet end 12 of said trap. Hence, trap 7 seals both the "pipe 9 and the waste pipe 6 against escape of gas, and with the valve 10 open, allA water from the sink orthe like 4 will descend from the trap 7 through the pipe 9 andinto the tank 8, instead of flowing;r fo a level above the point 11 and discharging on through the waste pipe 6 to the stack or the like 5. However, as soon as the tank Sand the pipe'9 are entirely filled, the water from the sink or the like 4 will travelon through the waste pipe 6 and into the stack or other pipe 5.

Whenever it is desired that water shall not in an appropriate container (not shown) or a hose llmay be connected with `said spigot.

Vhen it is desired that theftank 8 shall receive waste water from a bath tub 15, the waste pipe 16 from said tub may be con nected with the pipe 9 as shown in Fig. 2. When this installation is used, waste water from the tub 15 Vand the sink or the like lf i will discharge into the tank 8 until the pipe 9 has been entirely filled after complete filling of the tank 8. Then, the kwaste water will travel on through the waste the sink 4L, to the stack 5.v

In Fig. 3, a washing machine 17 and a laundry tub 18 have been shown, having waste pipes provided with traps 19-20, said waste pipes leading to the stack 21. Piping pipe 6 of f 22 equipped with valves 23, leads from the waste pipes to a water-collecting tank 24,1

the upper ends ol this piping being connected with the traps 19-20 below their outlets, so thatV waste water will Vdischarge though said piping `into the tank 24 until piping and tank are full, and will thereafter travel on to the stack 21. shown on the tank V24C for draining water therefrom within the basement or the like, and a discharge pipe 26 is shown leadingV from said tank to the exterior of the building, permitting the water to be drawn out from the tank and used, for irrigating or other desired purposes. v i

I claim 1. In combination with a plumbing lixture, a stack, and a waste pipe from fixture to stack embodying a trap ,a closed water collecting tank below said trap, and piping leading from saidjtrap to said tank, said piping communicating with the trap at a point between said tixture and the outlet Si)` A Vspigot 25 is end of said trap, whereby water from the lixture will descend through said piping unt-il the tank and Vpiping are `full and will thereafter travel on through the waste pipe to the stack.

V2. In combination withv a plumbingxture, a stack, and a waste pipe from fixtureV to stack embodying a trap; a closed watercollecting tank below said trap,-and piping leading from said vtrap to said tank, said piping communicating with the trap at a point between the lowest point of said trap and the outlet end of said trap, whereby water from the Xture will descend through said piping until the tank and piping are full and will thereafter travel on through the wabte pipe to the stack, and whereby laid trap will seal both said Waste pipe and said piping against escape of gases.

In combination with a plumbing lixture, a stack, and a waste pipe from fixture to stack embodying a trap; a closed Watereolleetng tank below said trap, a Watereonducting pipe lea-ding from said trap to said tank, an additional plumbing fixture ahofey the first named fixture, and an additional water-eondueting pipe from said additional hxture to the iirst named waterconducting pipe, said first named waterconducting pipe communicating with said trap at a point between the first named lixiule and the outlet of said trap, whereby water from hoih fixtures will descend to Said tank until the latter and both of .said water conducting pipes are lull and will thereafter travel on to said stack.

ln testimony whereof I have hereunto affixed my signature.
