Description:

FIELD OF THE TECHNIQUE

This invention relates to a manual pump operated by water pressure, which is specially designed to de-block the congestion in lavatories, tubs and kitchen sinks commonly available in houses, offices and all kinds of residences.

INFRASTRUCTURE OF THE INVENTION

The manual pump, which is the subject of the invention devised on the basis of a simple vacuum manual pump used when there is congestion in sinks in general, has been re-designed in a manner rendering it more convenient, practical and safer by addressing the negative aspects of presently available manual pumps and lavatory de-blockers.

It is common knowledge that various chemicals and vacuum manual pumps are presently used to clean away waste sediments accumulating inside siphons as in drain hoses and pipes. Use of chemicals to de-block congested lavatories exposes risks for health and besides, it leads to environmental pollution. Such chemicals are poured into siphons by adding hot water into them so that they are more effective and toxic gases that may emit in such a situation pose high risks in view of the health of humans and creatures.

A simple vacuum manual pump is another popular method of de-blocking the congested lavatories. By positioning the manual pump in a manner ensuring that it covers the mouth of the lavatory, vacuum is created by applying pressure from above in an attempt to force blocking sediments inside siphon go down the drain. Dirt and sediments which cannot get out of drain come out of the holes on the lavatory. During pump vacuum, there may be back pressure due to siphon wastes and in such a situation, waste water may be splashed around making the clothes of people nearby dirty, which is something no desired at all. That is why the method of de-blocking congested siphons with chemicals is preferred in houses. Chemicals are not cheap products and their use should not be preferred or it must be minimum to the extent as may be necessary only as it poses high risks for human health and causes environmental pollution.

The subject invention created by us, which is a manual pump, is a product devised to deal with all the negative aspects mentioned above and it is specially designed for this purpose; thus, any congested drains can be de-blocked by forcing down sediments and wastes by using water pressure.

The most important feature of our invention is that wastes in siphons can be removed by pushing them away with pressurized water in a manual pump only without using any chemicals.

EXPLANATION OF THE INVENTION

The present invention has been designed to deal with the negative aspects mentioned above and it is ultimately targeted to create an economical manual pump, which is convenient for production and practical for use and capable of removing wastes without requiring use of any chemicals.

Therefore, the objective of the present invention is its capability of removing dirt during daily use without having to use chemicals.

Another objective of the invention to prevent waste water splashes that take place during cleaning.

Development of an economical and practical product may be cited yet another objective of the invention.

Yet another objective of the invention is to offer a product which protects environment and human health and is therefore preferred.

For this purpose, the manual pump, which is the subject of the invention, consists of: a pump body (3), a valve body (8) positioned under this pump body (3), valve cover (7), valve cover spring (6) and impermeability gasket (5) and it is easy to produce and practical for use and quite an economical product.

The subject invention is illustrated by the following figures in further detail.

The manual pump, which is the subject of the invention, incorporates: a pump body (3) having a cylindrical structure of bellows, a round water filling intake (1) located on top of this pump body (3) and billow flaps on sides (4) and in addition, there are a valve body (8) positioned under this pump body (3) and a valve cover (7) mounted to this valve main body (8) as well as a round shaped rubber impermeability gasket (5) providing impermeability by installing it between this valve body (8) and pump body (3) including a valve cover (7) and a valve cover spring (6) located under the pump body (3).

The operational method of the pump is as follows: Water is filled into the pump body (3) from the water filling intake (1); the pump top cover (2) is placed on the pump body and then firmly positioned on the siphon stamps in the sinks and lavatories; manual pressure is applied from top and the valve cover (7) is opened and during this operation, as the billow flaps (4) are under pressure, the water inside the pump body (3) penetrates inside from the lavatory intake with much pressure and this pressurized water enables any deposits of dirt and sediment to flow down the drain hose and pipes. During this operation, the impermeability gasket (5) prevents water from coming out of the location where the pump body (3) joins the valve body (8) due to ensuing pressure.
