Application filed July 9,' 1927. Serial No. 204543.
This inventionrelates to drainage fittings and the object oi the invention is to provide a floor drain arranged so that seepage through the floor is carried into the drain tlms'prcventing any leakage between floors.
Another objectof the invention is to provide a floor drain in whichthe lead flashing is carried into the drain and .caulked in place so that any see-page through the floor or about the drain is carriedin-t-o the drain'outlet.
A further obj ect of the invention is to provide a flanged member having corrugations on the under surface thereon through which seepage is "adapted to flow, apertures being provided through which the seepage may pass into thedrain outlet.
- These objects and the several novel features of the invention "are hereinafter more .l'ul-ly described and claimed and the pre-' terred *form oil? construction by which these objects are attained 'iSshOWH in the accompanying drawing in -Which Fig. 1 is a. section through a 'floor drain embodying my invention.
Fig. 2 is a perspective View or the drain with the lead flashing removed.
Fig. is a perspective view of the-corrugated plate which is positioned on the lead flashing.
The drain comprises a cup shaped member 1 having an outwardly extending flange 3. The member 1 is provided with a shoulder 5 and an annular 'm'em-berfl is positioned on this shoulder as shown in Fig. 1. The mem- I her 6 is provided with an inwardly extend ing threaded flange 7 and a series of apertures 8 are provided through this flange as shown. A threaded sleeve 9 is threaded into the flange 7 and is provided with an enlarged upper end which is closed by the perforated plate 10. A plate 11 is threaded onto the sleeve 9 and a seepage ring 12 is positioned about the periphery of the plate 11. This drainage fitting is to be used for a drain in floors through whichseepage may occur such as a concrete floor in a shower bath or like construction. To prevent the seepage from passing through the floor a lead plate 13 is provided which extends outwardly to the edge of the floor. This plate is formed from sheet lead which is carried in over the flange 3 and downwardly into the space 14 between the member 6 and the wall of the cup shaped member 1. This space 14 is then filled with caulking in the ill thereof. This plate 11 is threaded tlQWIl- Wardly 'on the sleeve 9 to secure the lead plate between the "flange 3 and the member 11. /Vhen the concrete floor is laid the parts are in the position shown in Fig. 1. Should any o1v the water pass through the concrete floor or through cracks in the floor it passes over the lead plate 13 and through theseepage ring 12 and through the corrugations in the plate 11 and thence through the apertures 8 in the member 6 into the drain. By this arrangement the Water is prevented from passing througl'i to the floor below and all of the water which seeps through the floor is carried into the drain. For this purpose the edge of the "lead sheet or flashing is carried upwardly slightly above the floor level at the outer edges oil the floor.
From the foregoing description it becomes evident that the device is very simple and efficient "in operation; will not easily get out of order; will carry all seepage through the floor back into 'the drain, and "provides a device which accomplishes the objects described.
Having thus fully described my invention, its utility and mode of operatioIn-what 1 claim and desire to secure by Letters Patlar member and the lead flashing being filled with caulking to the top of the annular member a tubular member, a plate threaded onto under surface, the tubular member being threaded into the flange of the annular memher to bring the plate into contact with the lead flashing and a seepage ring positioned on the lead flashing about the periphery of the tubular member and having a corrugated threaded flange provided with a series the space between the annular member and flashing being filled with caulking to the top of the annular member, a tubular member threaded into the flange of the annular member and having a drain plate at the upper end, a plate threaded onto the-tubular member and having a corru ated under surface resting on the lead flashing and a seepagering positioned about the periphery ofthe said plate. u p
3. A dramage fitting comprising a cup shaped Inember'having an annular-shoulder,
' an annular member positioned on thesaid shoulder and having an inwardly extending apertures therethrough, alead flashing .extending into the cup shaped member between the annular memberand the wall of the cup shaped member, a tubular member threaded into the flange of the annular member, a
plate threaded ontojthe tubular member and having aradially corrugated under surface adapted to rest on the lead flashing and a seepage ring 1positionedabout the periphery of the said p ate.
4. In adrainage fitting, a cup shaped memher having a peripheral flange at the upper edge and an annular shoulder adjacentthe bottom,an annular member positioned on the shoulder, and having an inwardly exteiiding threaded flange provided with a series of apertures therethrough, a tubular member threaded into. the saidflange and formed at the upper end to provide a drainage inlet, a plate threaded ontothe: tubular member and provided with a corru ated under surface and a seepagering positioned about the periphery of said plate. I y
5. In a drainage fitting, a cup shapedmemher having an annular shoulder, an annular member positioned on the shoulder and having an inwardly extending threaded flange provided with a series of apertures therethrough, a tubular member threaded into the said flange, a plate threaded onthe tubular member and having acorrugated under surface and a seepage ring positioned about the periphery of the said plate, the upper end of the tubular member beingformed to provide a drainage inlet.
6. Ina drainage'fitting,a cup shaped meme.
her having a peripheral flange, an annular member supported thereby and having an inwardly extending threaded flange provided with a series of apertures therethrough a tubular member threaded into the flange, a-
plate threaded on the tubular member and contiguous to. said peripheral flange, said plate having a corrugatedunder surface pro- 'Vldlllg drainage grooves, thepsa d structure being adapted to bepositioned in a floor of self-hardening plastic material,and porous material sopositionedrelatlve to the plate as to )revent the plastic' material passing throng the draina e grooves, the upper end of the tubular mem er being formed to provide the drainage inlet. v u
