  • Patent number: 10294647
    Abstract: A toilet seal for sealing between a plumbing fixture discharge and a waste drainpipe outlet is described. The toilet seal comprises a flange member having an inwardly extending flexible lip and one or more raised ridges defining an annular seal extending upwardly from an upper surface of the flange member. The toilet seal further includes a radiused wall extending downwardly from the flange member, which cooperates with the flange member to define a cavity for receiving a compressible member. The toilet seal further comprises a flexible sleeve extending downwardly from the radiused wall. Related methods are described.

  • Publication number: 20190136499
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to improved water closet flanges and methods for installing such water closet flanges. In one exemplary embodiment, an improved water closet flange apparatus includes an outer flange and a flexible conduit portion (i.e. sleeve) extending downwardly therefrom. The flexible sleeve has a sufficient degree of flexibility to accommodate connection between offset, misaligned, angled, or otherwise incongruous plumbing fixture discharges and waste drain pipe outlets. In one embodiment, the flexible sleeve includes at least one corrugated portion to aid the desired flexibility. An upper portion of the flexible sleeve may include an inwardly extending lip portion to accommodate the desired seal between the plumbing fixture discharge and the flange apparatus. Related methods for installing the disclosed flange apparatus between plumbing fixture discharges and waste drainpipes are also described.

  • Patent number: 10221555
    Abstract: A method of installing a drain fixture, the method comprising first installing a sub-floor plumbing system comprising a plumbing trap, a removable drain pipe, and a sleeve. Next, the method comprises connecting the plumbing trap and the removable drain pipe and sliding the sleeve over the removable drain pipe. Next, the method comprises building a flooring surface proximate to the plumbing trap, the removable drain pipe, and the sleeve. Then, the method comprises removing the removable drain pipe at least partly from the sleeve, cutting the removable drain pipe to the desired length, and re-inserting the removable drain pipe through the sleeve and into the plumbing trap.

  • Publication number: 20180155914
    Abstract: A pre-form for drain installation is provided. The pre-form comprises a cap portion, a bottom portion, and an outer portion. The cap portion defines an interior for receiving a top end of an upwardly extending drain pipe and is configured to cover an opening of the drain pipe. The bottom portion is detachedly coupled to the cap portion and comprises an aperture through which the drain pipe may pass so as to enable the bottom portion to slide along the length of the drain pipe. The outer portion is coupled to and extends upwardly from the bottom portion so as to define a perimeter for displacing concrete proximate to the drain pipe when inserted into a wet concrete flooring surface.
