Description

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

The present invention relates to the field of washing apparatus, in particular a washing apparatus being used as both dishwasher and basin.

2. Description of the Related Art

Water sinks are necessary of each modern kitchen, and a dishwasher is becoming the basic equipment as well. People who have experience of using a dishwasher would definitely realize that tableware of each meal is not constant enough to occupy even one tier of the dishwasher fully, while most of the dishwashers on the market would have two tiers of washing sectors. As a result, the large volume of empty space brings a problem of water wasting in operation, and unreasonable energy consumption is also emerged because of the high water pressure required. A conventional water sink can only be used in food washing and dish washing manually, but not able to perform any task as an automatic dish washer.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The present invention tends to provide a washing apparatus being capable of both water sink and dishwasher. The present invention comprises two water sinks. These two water sinks can be used as a basin when they are stacked, wherein a plate rack is configured in an interspace between said two water sinks. Alternatively these two water sinks can be used as a dishwasher when their openings are dosed oppositely each other, whereby they form an enclosed space for dishwashing.

Therefore the present invention adopts the following technical solution.

A washing apparatus comprises a first water sink and a second water sink, wherein the depth of second water sink is greater than that of the first water sink, such that an interspace there between is formed when they are stacked. Second outlet is configured in the second water sink, and a water spray mechanism is disposed at the bottom of the second water sink, the water spray mechanism comprises a nozzle towards the interspace.

Further, First outlet is configured in the first water sink; the first outlet is linked to the second outlet by a connector.

Further, a foldable plate rack is configured in the interspace.

Further, the water spray mechanism comprises a motor, a water pump connected with the motor and an electric net valve to turn a water inlet on/off.

Further, an electric outlet valve is configured in the second outlet.

Compared with the prior art, the present invention provides the following benefits:

The present invention provides a washing apparatus being capable of both water sink and dishwasher. The present invention comprises two water sinks. These two water sinks can be used as a basin when they are stacked, wherein a plate rack is configured in an interspace between said two water sinks. Alternatively these two water sinks can be used as a high water pressure washing apparatus, to be a dishwasher, when their openings are closed oppositely each other, whereby they form an enclosed space. The present invention costs low water and electric consumption, and is environment-friendly.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PRESENTLY PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

A preferred embodiment of the present invention will be described hereinafter with referenced to the drawings:

LIST OF REFERENCE CHARACTERS

01—First Water Sink;

02—Second Water Sink;

03—Motor;

04—Water Pump;

05—Electric Outlet Valve;

06—Second Outlet;

07—Water Inlet Pipe;

08—Electric net Valve;

09—Pate rack;

10—Water Spray Nozzle;

11—First Outlet;

12—Manual Outlet Valve.

Referring to FIG. 1, the washing apparatus of the present invention comprises a first water sink 01 and a second water sink 02, wherein the depth of the second water sink 02 is greater than that of the first water sink 01. Consequently, the first water sink 01 can be stacked on the second water sink 02, whereby an interspace is formed between the first water sink 01 and the second water sink 02. A plate rack 09 for holding tableware is installed in the interspace. Moreover, the plate rack 09 features a foldable structure, such that this plate rack 09 can be folded into the interspace between the first water sink 01 and the second water sink 02, when the first and second water sinks are stacked. Alternatively, the plate rack 09 would bounce back to a certain shape spontaneously, which is able to carry dishes, when the first water sink 01 is separated with the second water sink 02.

The first water sink 01 is equipped with a first outlet 11, and the second water sink 02 is equipped with a second outlet 06, wherein the first outlet 11 is linked to the second outlet 06 by a connector. When the first and second water sinks are stacked, the water in the first water sink could be drained from the second outlet 06 through the connector.

Referring to FIGS. 2, 3 and 4, a water spray mechanism disposed at the bottom of the second water sink 02 comprises a motor 03, a water pump 04, an electric outlet valve 05, a second outlet 06, a net pipe 07 and an electric net valve 08. When the dishes are placed on the plate rack 09 properly, the first water sink 01 can then be overturned on top of the second water sink 02 so that a closed space within them is formed. Before washing starts, the manual outlet valve 12 should be switched off in order to prevent water from discharging. Meanwhile, the motor 03 is connected to the water pump 04, in the purpose of driving the water from the inlet pipe 07 to the water spray nozzle 10 towards the dishes inside the closed space. When washing finishes, the electric outlet valve 05 will be working, and the water in the second water sink 02 can be discharged through the second outlet 06.

The present invention has been described with reference to the particular illustrative embodiment above; however it is not to be restricted by this embodiment but only by the appended claims. If any changes or modifications belong to the claims and the equivalent technical concept range of the present invention, they do fall into the legal protection scope.
