Abstract: A shower holder for the removable attachment of a hand shower contains a sleeve element with a conical inner bore, the sleeve element laterally having a through longitudinal slot. This permits the lateral insertion of the shower tube, whilst the hand shower is slid in axially and fixed by clamping action.To improve the adhesion or reduce the insertion forces, the inner cone has an elastomeric material lining. The elastomeric material can be injected through the wall of the sleeve element, so as to form on the outside a ring element, which can be used for soundproofing purposes during locking.
Abstract: A coupling means for connecting two water-handling parts, more particularly rigid or flexible tubular elements, comprises a nipple element, a bush element and a coupling element. The coupling element is arranged on the nipple element or the bush element and movable relative thereto. For assembling the coupling means the nipple element is introduced linearly into the bush element, the coupling element moving by itself into the release position against the force of a spring. As soon as the nipple element is completely inserted, the spring forces the coupling element into a latched position in which the coupling is completed. In this latched position the coupling element can be turned further for adjusting an additional means.
Abstract: A connecting means for a water flow appliance, for example a hand shower, contains a connecting element connected to a water guide, for instance, a house water mains. Arranged in the connecting element is a sieve element which can be shifted between a sieve position, in which it acts a sieve, and a cleaning position in which it is possible to remove the particles retained in the sieve element. The sieve position is always assumed when a connection is made to the connecting means. When this connection is removed the sieve element can be translated into the cleaning position for example by water pressure. The water flow can be passed through said sieve element in the cleaning position preferably in the reverse direction so that said sieve element is back-washed.
Abstract: A shower head, for example, a hand shower contains in its interior a means with which the flow of the water leaving the shower head through a jet orifice can be modulated relatively slowly. The means for modulating the flow of water may be powered, more particularly, by a turbine wheel arranged in the interior of the shower head. When two arrays of jet orifices are provided for producing two different types of jet the means may be used for automatic changeover between the two types of jet. The invention provides a shower with which the user is showered by all types of jet possible with the aid of the shower without requiring him to make a change by hand.
Abstract: A sanitary fitting contains in a common basebody thereof a flow control valve and a thermostatic valve. The flow control valve contains a valve for the cold water and a valve for the hot water. These valves are arranged upstream of the thermostatic valve in the direction of flow. Both valves are actuated by a common control valve. In addition, the flow control valve may be used for selecting several outlets.
Abstract: A sanitary article, particularly a sanitary fitting or plumbing fitting, having a coated surface, in which on a coating face and/or below a coating face is provided at least one print image which color-contrasts with the coating.
Abstract: The invention relates to a sanitary hose, particularly a connecting hose for connecting a sanitary fitting to a water feed line. The hose has a flexible, at least single-layer hose body (10) and an encasing tube (14) surrounding it substantially over its entire length. The encasing tube (14) surrounds the hose body (10) in clearance-free manner and is displaceable relative thereto. The application of the encasing tube takes place by the reversible elastic expansion thereof in an apparatus set up for this purpose.
Abstract: A shower having a shower head and a jet disk with a plurality of jet exit openings contains a cleaning device, which within the shower head has for each jet exit opening a pin, which is insertable in and reextractable from the jet exit opening. For moving the pins of the cleaning device a turbine is provided, which is driven by the water flowing into the shower head.
Abstract: A shower head contains a shower head core with a connection to a water main and a cup-shaped jacket surrounding the core. The jacket only frees the jet disk connected to the core. For switching between two groups of jet exit openings a switching element is provided, which is rotatably located in the shower head core and is rotated by rotating the shower head jacket with respect to the still stationary core and jet disk.
Abstract: A sanitary valve contains a valve housing with a fixed control surface and a hot water intake. In the valve housing is provided a control element, which controls the water quantity leaving the valve. According to the invention the sanitary valve contains a scalding protection, which is arranged and constructed on the control element in such a way that on exceeding a predetermined temperature it reduces or prevents the passage of water through a hot water-carrying opening.
Abstract: A hand shower containing a shower head, a handle and a connection for the shower hose, has in the interior of its handle an insert part, which in the vicinity of its one end is connected to a line leading to the shower head and in the vicinity of its other end has the connection for the shower hose. The insert part can be used as a mounting support for different functional elements or can be part of different functional elements.
