applicatie mba 4apra u, ieoa semi no. saone andY more particularly in connection with of thefaucet being broken away, as

faucet, whereby;` the fluids maf-Y be raised from one level to another, as or example in emptying tubs and other receptacles; an

the o ject .of my improvement is first, to provide a connection to the faucet which ma be easily and quicklj attached thereto, an1 when so attached thel ressure of the fluid itself will aid in hol ing the attachi ment onthe faucet' second, in providing means for a 'et of iuid 'within the attachyment which s allact as an ejector or e1eva-l tor in raising the fluid through connective tubing; and third, to arrange said injector or force producing tportion of the fixture in valvular form so at the fixture ma used both for withdrawing the fluidV rom the rece tacle and by turning said valvular portion or filling the receptacle, and thel in vention resides in the arrangement and com#v bination of the parts, as shown in this speci. cation and drawings and pointed out in the claims; 1 e i In the drawings Figure 1 is a vertical lengthwise sectiona view o f the fluid elevth tor attached to the faucet the mainlpshrtion own at line' Xv X in Fig. 7; and Fi 2 is a vertical crosswise sectional view-Q the fluid elevator at line Y Y 1n Fig. 1, each of the views showing the manner of attachment to thekfai'lc'et and the manner efforcin the fluidA in order to elevate the same. ig. y3

Fig. Lis-a front eevation of the fluid elevator showing the manner of control for the revoluble centrahpoi-tion. Fig. 5 'is .l I 'D ving 12 upon a side elevation of the faucet with the fluid elevator attached thereto, showing its tuhular connection to the lower receptacle in order to elevate the fluid therefrom. Fig. 6

is a sectional view of the threaded end of a faucet showing connection for receiving the fluid elevator thereon. Fi 7 is a vertical lengthwise sectional view o the fluid eleva-y tor with the central portion'turned so as to allow the fluid to pass through the same for filling receptacles.

4 Similar numerals refer to corresponding parts in the several views.

The tubular fluid connection or elevator consists of an lar tubular part` or parts which allows t e fluid to flow in liorlzontally and be forced out vertically or nearly so. In order to form an instantaneous and fluid tight connection for4 the elevator attachment to the end of the faucet the upper art of the casing 10 4of the elevator is ormed with a chamber 11- within which a circular rubber packing 1Q is provided which is bent back uplon itself so as to form the opening 13 wit in the rubber packing. The opening within the rubber packing 12 for the faucet end 14 is of such a ,size

'as to s ring upon and fit closely to the sides of the ower tubular 5nd ofY the faucet.- The chamber 11 is so formed that the fluid as admitted under pressure through faucet 14, will enter chamber 11 and flow u intojthe space 18, thereby pressing the rub ackthe' outer side of the and the inner side of the casing' 10, and forming a fluid 'tight connection, as w as a strong and instantaneous connection of the attachment lO'to the faucet,it onl being necessary to press the lower end o the faucet into the opening within the rubber packing 12. .The upper part 15 of the 'casing 10 is extended near y faucet so that the pa rcssed or forced out by t will be confined in againstthe sides of the Immediately below `and in line with the mouth of the faucet 14., a Vtubular projection 16 is made on the casing 10, leading to the cian not be e ui rassure place an pressed K to the outer side of-the aucet A ucet and casing.

sired to empty the water or other fluids. Above the tubular rojection 16 and in line therewith between aucet 14 and part`16, a small nozzle 17 is rovid'ed having an opening 18 therethrough in order to force a jet of luld down through the larger tube 16.

The casing 10 might be made in one part and attain my purpose, but is preferably made in two parts, as shown so that one part may turn within the other. Toward this end a tubular opening 19 is made within the part 10 and a second part 20 is revolubly mounted Within o ening 19, being securely attached therein y means of the projection 21 which extends out through the side of part 10 and nut 22, thereby holding the art 20 firmly in place and adjusting it to t e desired position as well as drawing it to a fluid ti ht joint between the two parts very muc after the manner which is common inthe construction of valves of different kinds.

The nozzle 17 is preferabl formed within part 20, extending towar the center of the same and in line with the opening 11 when the parts are assembled. A second opening 23 is provided in part 20 in line with opening 11', so thathole 23 may be turned into conjunction therewith as shown in 7, when it is desired to ll a receptacle. Part 20 is turned by means of a handle 24 attached thereto andl extending up between projecting'lugs 25 and 26 on part 10. The outer end of part 20 is drawn into tubular sha e suitable for the attachment of a hose 2 as shown in Fig. 5, which hose may extend to a receptacle 28 lower than the sink 29 into which it is desired to empty the fluid.

In order to start the siphonic elevation of the fluid the hose 27 should be filled with the uid. It is obvious that this is very easily accomplished byturning x Y as to bring o ning 23 inconjunction with o ening 11, ereby closing tube 16 and nozz e 17 and allowing the iiuid to ilow out thro h the hose 27, thereby said hose. Handle 24 can then be in antly turned back while the force from the faucet 14 is still turned on, thereb allowing the fluid under pressure to be orced through nozzle 17 creating la strong downward jet through tube 16 into sink 29, the force of the jet will cause the fluid to be drawn from the receptacle 28 and'forced out the tube 16 into tliesink, thereby emptying the rece tacle. It is obvious that when it is desire i to fill the receptacle the handle 24 may be turned as above described, allowing the fluid trzklflow out through 27 into thev e. In 8 is shown a double connection ,for attachment to two faucets to be in handle 24 so v in sai valve casing at right l.said tubular part having apl i cases where it is desired to mix two different uids for the admission of fluids of different einieratures, as for example, hot and cold u1 s. i

the ui elevator can be instantly pressed upon tubular end 31 or quickly removed therefrom, the savin of time in screwing on a hose or tube 27 eilig a large factor in promoting the work of a busy laundry or itchen.
