  • Publication number: 20190127131
    Abstract: A fluid delivery system for selectively dispensing a material includes a container with a top wall in which an opening is formed, a bottom wall, and at least one container side wall extending between the top wall and the bottom wall defining a cavity for storing the material, as well as a surface cleaning apparatus including a receiver configured to couple with the container. The receiver includes at least one receiver fluid inlet, at least one receiver fluid outlet and a locking mechanism.

  • Patent number: 10252409
    Abstract: A magnetic cleaner distributes ferromagnetic cleaning particles to a surface to agglomerate dirt and dust, agitates the cleaning particles on the surface so that dirt particles adhere to the cleaning particles, and collects the dirt laden cleaning particles. A dispenser for holding and dispensing the ferromagnetic cleaning particles, an agitator to agitate the ferromagnetic particles on the surface, a magnetic collector for picking up ferromagnetic cleaning particles from the surface, and a dirt cup for collecting the ferromagnetic cleaning particles picked up by the collector are provided by the cleaner.

  • Patent number: 10189614
    Abstract: A cap for closing an opening in a container, the container having a top wall in which the opening is formed, a bottom wall, and at least one container side wall extending between the top wall and the bottom wall defining a cavity for storing a material for dispensing through the cap includes an end face having at least one fluid inlet adapted to allow air to flow through the cap and at least one fluid outlet, separate from the at least one fluid inlet, adapted to allow liquid to flow through the cap, a side wall extending from the end face, and a retaining element provided on at least a portion of the side wall.

  • Publication number: 20180229255
    Abstract: A surface cleaning apparatus includes a liquid delivery system for storing cleaning liquid and delivering the cleaning liquid to the surface to be cleaned, and an indicator system that is operably coupled with the liquid delivery system to indicate an operational status to the user operating the surface cleaning apparatus. The indicator system can include a light emitter that illuminates when an operational status is detected. The light emitter can illuminate a supply container configured to store cleaning liquid.

  • Publication number: 20180168419
    Abstract: A surface cleaning apparatus is provided with a primary fluid distributor and an auxiliary fluid distributor. Each distributor can have a separate and independent flow control actuator. The flow control actuator for the auxiliary fluid distributor is operably coupled with a push-push flow control mechanism, where push-push flow control mechanism has a push on/push off configuration such that pushing the auxiliary flow control actuator once starts fluid flow from the auxiliary fluid distributor and subsequently pushing the auxiliary flow control actuator again stops fluid flow from the auxiliary fluid distributor.
