Description:

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

[0001] The present invention relates to stools; and particularly to a stool detergent releasing device, wherein the detergent mixing with water in the water storage tank with a predetermined ratio.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0002] Generally, stools are easily polluted by dirt so as to emit foul smell, especially in some corners of the stools. To clean the dirt from the stool is a difficult work. Thereby, users place detergent blocks in the stool water storage tank. The detergent block can resolve in the water gradually so as to mix with the water, which can prevent the stool to be polluted and emit fragrant odor.

[0003] However, a time period is necessary to resolve the detergent block. If the stool is used frequently in a short time period, the amount of the detergent in the water is too small, it can not be effectively functioned. If the stool is seldom used, too much detergent will resolve in the water storage tank so as to induce the waste of the detergent. Thereby, the prior art detergent block is not a proper way for removing the dirt and foul odor from the stool.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0004] Accordingly, the primary object of the present invention is to provide a stool detergent releasing device which comprises detergent releasing device installed within a water storage tank. The detergent releasing device is installed with a seat. The seat is communicable to the water storage tank. An upper interior of the seat is installed with a detergent container for receiving detergent; and a bottom of the seat having a ballcock. When the stool is flushed; the ballcock descends with level of water in the water storage tank so that the detergent flows out from a bottom of the detergent container. When level of water in the water storage tank rises, the ballcock rises to resist against bottom of the seat so as to stop the drainage of the detergent. Thus the detergent mixes with water in the water storage tank with a predetermined ratio.

[0005] Another object of the present invention is to provide a stool detergent releasing device, wherein the seat is a lattice frame; a top opening of the frame is a positioning ring having inner threads; an inserting plate containing an inserted groove is formed at a back side of the frame; the hanger is inserted into the inserted groove.

[0006] A further object of the present invention is to provide a stool detergent releasing device, wherein one end of the detergent container has a cylinder; one end of the cylinder has an outlet; an interior of the outlet has a rubber plug; the rubber plug has a central through hole and a flow guide movably installed in the central through hole; a lower end of the central through hole has a tapered hole having a large opening at an outside end; one end of the flow guide is formed as a tapered buckling end for being positioned in the tapered hole; a lower end of the buckling end has a seal for sealing the tapered hole and thus the rubber plug is sealed.

[0007] The various objects and advantages of the present invention will be more readily understood from the following detailed description when read in conjunction with the appended drawing.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

[0013] Referring to FIGS. 1 to 5, the present invention is a detergent releasing device B installed in the water storage tank A of a stool (referring to FIG. 1). The detergent releasing device B is mainly formed by a hanger 10, a seat 20, a detergent container 30 and a ballcock 40.

[0014] The hanger 10 is a banding plate and has a hanging groove 11 and an inserting portion 12. By the hanging groove 11, the hanger 10 can be suspended to the wall A1 of the water storage tank A.

[0015] The seat 20 is a lattice frame 21. A top opening of the frame 21 is a positioning ring 22 having inner thread 221. An inserting plate 23 containing an inserted groove 230 is formed at a backside of the frame 21. The hanger 10 can be inserted into the inserted groove 23.

[0016] One end of the detergent container 30 has a cylinder 31. One end of the cylinder 31 has an outlet 32. A distal end of the cylinder 31 is formed with a thread 310 at an outer periphery of the cylinder 31. The thread 310 can be engaged with the retaining ring 22 of the seat 20. An interior of the outlet 32 has a rubber plug 33. The rubber plug 33 has a central through hole 330 and a flow guide 34 movably installed in the central through hole 330. A lower end of the central through hole 330 has a tapered hole 331 having a large opening at an outside end. One end of the flow guide 34 is formed as a tapered buckling end 341 for being positioned in the tapered hole 331. A lower end of the buckling end 341 has a seal 341 for sealing the tapered hole 331 and thus the rubber plug 33 is sealed. The rod body of the flow guide 34 has a helical flow guiding groove 342 so that the detergent in an interior of the detergent container 30 can drain out from the flow guiding groove 342. The flow guide 34 may slide upwards due to an upward force. The seal 341 at the bottom of the flow guide 34 will seal the tapered hole 331 of the central through hole 330 of the rubber plug 33 for preventing the detergent from drainage.

[0017] The ballcock 40 is installed in a bottom of the frame 21 of the seat 20. By the buoyancy of the water in the water storage tank A, the ballcock 40 moves upwards to resist against the flow guide 34 (referring to FIG. 4) so as to seal the seal central through hole 330.

[0018] By the detergent releasing device B, after flushing, the ballcock 40 descends and the flow guide 34 slides downwards so that the detergent drains out. When water in an interior of the water storage tank A rises to a predetermined height, the ballcock 40 rises and the flow guide 34 slides upwards so that the detergent stops draining. Thereby, the water in the water storage tank A can be mixed with the detergent of a predetermined amount.

[0019] Since the inserting portion 12 of the hanger 10 is tightly and movably engaged to the inserting groove 231 of the inserting plate 23 of the seat 20. By adjusting the height of the seat 20 in the water storage tank A, the ballcock 40 resists against the flow guide 34 so as to adjust the draining time period of the detergent. That is, the amount of the detergent for adjusting the detergent is at a proper condition. Thereby, insufficient of detergent can be avoided so as to have an optimum mixing condition.

[0020] Moreover, the detergent container 30 and seat 20 are screwedly connected. When the detergent in the detergent container 30 is used up, the detergent container 30 can be updated directly.

[0021] The advantages of the present invention will be described herein.

[0022] The detergent in the stool can be mixed to the water storage tank with a sufficient amount.

[0023] The filling amount of the detergent can be adjusted by adjusting the height of the seat by sliding the seat along the hanger.

[0024] By the helical flow guiding groove, the detergent flows along a helical path and then the draining rate of the detergent is steady. Moreover, by the ballcock, the releasing time of the detergent is controllable to have an optimum effect.

[0025] The detergent container can be updated conveniently.

[0026] The present invention is thus described, it will be obvious that the same may be varied in many ways. Such variations are not to be regarded as a departure from the spirit and scope of the present invention, and all such modifications as would be obvious to one skilled in the art are intended to be included within the scope of the following claims.
