Toilet having a pressurised water supply
The toilet bowel is designed to work in conjunction with a device regulator to control the flow of pressurised water, directly from mains pressure. The devise purpose is to regulate the flow into the bowl creating a venturi effect to evacuate waste and water from the bowl.
Using the above method reduces the amount of water used by the system and eliminates the need for a cistern.
A toilet comprising
- a toilet bowl having a water outlet,
- a first water supply conduit having at least one in the vacinity of the upper region of the bowl,
- a second water supply conduit having an outlet in a lower region of the bowl, the outlet of the second water supply conduit oriented to direct water passing therethrough towards the water outlet and against the surface of the bowl,
- a water inlet conduit adapted for connection to pressurised water supply and to channel water to said first and second water supply,
- a control device configured to operate said first and second flow regulators to control the flow of pressurised water in said first abd second water supply conduits to selectively deliver water from the pressurised water supply,
a) via the second water supply conduit to create a venturi effect to evcuate waste and water from the bowl; and
b) via the first water supply conduit to travel along the wall of the toilet bowl to thereby wash and refill the bowl
The device is operably connected to the flow regulators, such that when the control device is activated to flush the toilet, the control device is configured to operate the flow regulator so that:
a) water from the pressurised water supply enters the bowl via the first water supply for predetermined period of time,
b) water from the pressurised water supply enters the bowl via the second water supply conduit from the bottom outlet for a predetermined period of time;
c) water from the pressurised water supply then re-enters the bowl via the first water supply conduit for a predetermined period of time; and then
d) water supply to the bowl is shut off, until the control device is reactivated to flush the toilet
The water inlet conduit is adapeted for connection to a mains water supply having a water pressure of at least 30 PSI
The outlet in the vacinity of the upper region of the toilet bowl is/are positioned about the top of the bowl, such that water exiting the outlet or outlets travels around and down the walls of the bowl in a substantially clockwise or anti clockwise direction. The top outlet/oulets are configured to allow for water to be directed onto the top of the wall of the toilet.
The water exiting the second outlet does so through a tapered end portion, which increases the velocity of the water and directs it towards the water outlet of the toilet bowl at a point on the wall of the toilet bowl such that water and waste are sucked out of the bowl to leave the bowl empty
Problem this idea/invention addresses:
This invention relates to an improved toilet flushing system, reducing the amount of water required to remove waste.
