FILLING AND DRAINING DEVICE Filed June 4, 1929 IN VENTOR Patented a. 13, 1931.


FILLING AND DRAININQJJEVICVEGVT Applicationfiled Julie 19 9;;gas;gene i j i it The present invention relates to filling and draining devices and more particularly to the type in which an ejector is provided with two. faucet connectionstboth of which may be connected to tWo faucets when filling a receptacle, and one being connected with a faucet while the other acts as a discharge when draining a receptacle. An object of this invention is toprovide an outer splashv attachment for the faucet connection which acts as a discharge when drain ng a recepta cle. Another-object of the invention isto provide an attachment which will permit filling and draining devices of the class described to be employed as self starting siphon tubes. I

To these and other ends, the invention con'- sists of certain parts and combinations of parts all of which will be hereinafterv described: the novel features being pointed out in the appended claims.

'In the drawings: 1 Fig. 1 is a view showing the device mounted to drain a receptacle into a sink; the

' dotted lines showing the filling adjustment;

Fig. 2 is a view showing the device adjusted to act as a self starting siphon; and i Fig. 3 is an enlarged central section-of the ejector casing.

7 In" the illustrated'embodiment of the invention there is employed a casing having three arms 1, 2, and 3, the first being the intake for the ejector formed by a walll with a restricted opening 5 discharging into the 5 discharge arm 2 which, in this instance, is aligned with the ejector. The other arm 3 extends laterally from the casing between the discharge 2 thereof and the ejector so that 0 water passing through the ejector will draw water in'through the arm '3 to mix Wilthth} water passing from the ejector. The ejector arm 1 has a faucet connection connected thereto, in this'instancei, an inter 5 nally threaded collar 6 journalled on the arm forming the ejector. The discharge arm 2 also has a faucetjconnection connected therei to preferably iirithe form of a flexible tube having an internally threaded collar 8 jour nailed onits free end. To the arm 3 is convWILLIAM i-rscor'r, oF Rocmis'rEmn-Ew YORK"? nected a fiexi ble tube 9 whichispreferably b than the, tube 7 fi i grec pta l w eat-a connections; are secured to "two faucetsgand I thetubef9 is placed inth'e r'e ceptacleflp' tobe filled asshown in dotted linesin Fig} 1.

' herfr mfl ws n aheeepa e .p'Fo'ndr'aining a' receptacle the faucet con n e cting conne'cted iwithjthe arm 2 is :permi'tt'e' d. to lie the sink 111 while the .fa icetsj c tin m ans con ec ed with the ejector arm 1 is; connected toi a faucet; The

fill e 9 {is .placed' in a receptacle {101 The turning 'on fof the fauceti'causes thelWater 'pa ji'rl' jth fl h 1 h a ,s'c't'qfi w i a from -the '*receptacle .10 through f the, tube 9 and discharge such .water i with that "passing tliroughlthe ejector.intojthesink 11.

It has been iroimdwhamhewater dis- 'eiiar'ged threu iithe tube; 7; i'n draining are;

"sinkf and to T p rei'nerit action there i has 7 been provided f a r fantifsplash device which 'det t a y neb s i h fa ce comet- .ingcollar. this instance, this antisplash device .;crgmprises a g' cup I shaped member 12 formed of rubber and' having an'externally threaded nipple'13 atoneendfor'detachable connection with'the internallyfthreaded collar HSQ, .This fcup .shap ed;.member is placed over 'the'drain 14in the sink 11 and conducts the water to the drain without any splashing.

The cup shaped member 12 may also be employed for-creating a suction in the device -:for the purposeof using the deviceas a syphon. As, for instance, shown in Fig.2

for draining a receptacle 14 intoa receptacle 10 to close oflf' the ejector. Pressure on the bottom of thefreceptacle. 10 by'the cup12 creates a suction which will start water through the device and this. will continue so long' as the level in-the discharging recep ceiving receptacle 10. I

It will thus be seen that the flexible detachable cup has twofunctions in connection with" a device of'this kind It serves 7 When'so'used a screw plug 15 is .fitted intotheIinternally threaded collar 6 "9'0 tacle 14: is above the Water level of the re as an anti-splash device and also as a suction creating device for obtaining a siphonic action.

What I claim as my invention and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

1. The combination with an ejector, of two faucet connecting devices connected to the ejector, one at the intake end the other at the discharge end, a third conduit leading from the ejector at the discharge end and through which wate1may be drawn by Water passing through the ejector, of a suction device carrying means detachably interlocking with that faucet connecting device which gonnects with the discharge end of the ejecor.. I

2. The combination with an ejector hav ing a faucet connecting device connected to the intake thereof, and two fluid conductors connected to the ejector on the discharge side thereof, one of said conductorshaving its inner end so disposed with reference to the ejectorthat the liquid is drawn therethrough and discharged through the other conductor,

a faucet connecting device connected to the free end of the discharging conductor, and

a cup shaped device having a device detachabiy but rigidly interlocking with the second mentioned faucet connecting device, said cup 39 shaped device heingadapted to be held by suction over the drain of a sink, whereby the water is forcedunder pressure through the drain to prevent clogging of the same.

'3. The combination with an ejector having a faucet connecting device connected to the intake thereof, and two fluid conductors connected .t'othe ejector on the discharge side thereof, one ofsaidfconductors having its inner end so disposed with reference to. the

49 ejector that the liquid is drawn therethrough and discharged through the other conductor,

a closing device for the ejector detach-ably interlocking with the faucet connecting device, and .a flexible cup shaped suction member rigidly connected to the free end of the discharging conductor. 7 v
