IMPROVEMENT IN COMBINED WASH-STAND AND WATER-CLOSET.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 37,896, dated Marc-l1 17, 1863 To (LZZ whom, it may concern:
Be it known that I, SAMUEL BIssIcKs, of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Water Closet and Wash-Stand Combined 5 and I hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, making a part of this specification, and the letters of reference marked thereon, in which the same letter represent the same thing in each figure.
Figure l is an isometrical view of my improved water-closet and wash-stand.
A represents the case B, the Wash-bowl; C, the water-closet basin; D, thc cover thereof; E, the soil-pipe F, the connecting-swivel between the water-closet basin and the main soil-pipe Gr, the supply-pipe to the basin; H, the supply-pipe to the wash-bowl; I, the faucet; J, the bracket supporting the swivel and water-pipe K, the 'waste-pipe to the washbowl.
At L, in the supplypipe, is an ordinary shutoff valve, which lets water into the pipe leading to the wash-bowl when the water-closet basin is s wung in or out, but lets water into the water-closet basin only when it is swung out.
The operation of my improved water-closet and wash-stand is so manifest that no description is necessary. The wash-stand is used a's any ordinary bowl and water-cock.
To use the water-closet bowl, it is only necessary to swing it forward upon the swivel E, whereby the shut oi' valve at L is opened and. water flows continuously through pipe G into basin C, and thence by soil-pipe E and swivelpipe F to the main soil-pipe of the bowl. Re turning the water-closet basin C to its position when not in use shuts the valve at L, and stops the ow of the water.
Having thus described my improved washstand and water-closet combined, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
The combination and arrangement of the" stand A, or its equivalent, with the bowls B and C, faucet I, valve L, pipes G and E, and swivelF, substantially as described.
