Patented Oct. 28 1930 UNITED: STATES PETER scnLUMBoHm or BERLIN, GERMANY 'BIDET' Application filed April 26, 1929, Serial No. 358,367, and in Germany Apiil 28, 1928.
Y My invention relates to a bidet combined with a rinsing appliance and provided with a partition for separating the space for the unconsumed or available rinsing liquid from the space for the reception of the consumed or used rinsing liquid.
The chief object of my invention is to provide a bidet of the stated type wherein the partition is so arranged and constructedas to be capable of automatic displacement or deformation during and upon consumption of the available rinsing liquid with the result that the space for thereception of the thus used liquid will correspondingly increase in size or as regards its capacity.
In describing the-invention in detail reference will be had to the accompanying drawings wherein like characters designate like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which Fig. 1 is a cross sectional View.
Fig. 2 is the same cross sectional view showing the displaced partition.
Fig. 3 is atop plan View of the bidet shown in Fig. l and in Fig. 2.
Referring more particularly to the drawings, 1 designates the bidet as an entirety comprising an air cushion and a bottom 2 attached thereto to form a basin as usual and provided with a filling opening equipped with a funnel-like mouth-piece 3. The bot. tom 2 and the partition 4, which is united with the bottom or with the air cushion, form a compartment for the reception of the rinsing liquid to be filled in through the said opening and mouth-piece 3 the latter having a female thread 5 for the threaded end of a hose 6 to be attached to the mouth-piece. The hose 6 is provided intermediate between its two ends as usual in syringes of this type, with a compressible rubber bulb 7 equipped with valves (not shown) of usual construction and acting as a pump, while the free end of the hose is provided with a canularor nozzle 8 for the rinsing purpose.
In operation the rinsing liquid 9 is discharged from the compartment constituted by the bottom 2 and the partition 4 through the hose 6 by manually compressing and releasing the bulb 7 so as to be ejected from the canula or nozzle 8. .The' more liquid is discharged in this way-the more will the partition 4 approach the bottom I2 whereby the size and volume of the said compartment will be reduced and that of the basin be correspondingly increased. Upon inspection and comparison of Fig. 1 and Fig; 2 it will be seen, that when the compartment is filled withliquid 9, see Fig. 1, and the bidet is in conditlonor prior to use,the partition 4 is expanded or raised a considerable distance apart from the bottom 2 and that when the bidet is used and the liquid is gradually discharged by thesyringe from the compartment to the basin, the partition will correspondingly collapse and approach the bottom 2 as shown in Fig. 2.
If the partition 4 were not constructed and arranged so'as'to be capable of collapsing due to automatic displacement, the size of the bidet would have to be about twice as 1 large and occupy about twice the volume or capacity shown. 1
Fig. 3 shows a valve 11 in the annular air cushionfor the inflating purpose.
The provision of the filling mouth-piece 3 in the bottom is of particular advantage in operation for, the reason that the hose will be filled with liquid at once and therefore no air will be supplied through the hose. Figs. 1-3 show only an example of the bidet. The bidet is preferably made of rubber and the partition is preferably made of the same material.
The bidet is put on a chair, see Fig. 1,.and therefore it is of particular advantage to bidet.
What I claim is:
- 1. In a bidet a partition forming together provide the mouth-piece 3 at the rim of the i 2. In a bidet a partition forming together 7 with the bottom a compartment for the clean rinsing liquid this partition being so attached and provided that it approaches the bottom on consumption of clean rinsing liquid thus enlarging the volume and capacity of the basin for the reception of the used liquid, a filling orifice being' provided in the bottom. i
In testimon whereof I affix my si nature.
