  • Patent number: 9376794
    Abstract: A simple and inexpensive plastic assembly snaps over the rim of a toilet bowl. The deodorizer/disinfecting embodiment container hangs outside the toilet bowl. It is supported by a rim clamp inside the toilet bowl. One model simply clips on clips off for disposable use. Other models have a container with a refillable top. An adjustable exit tube nut adjusts to various different toilet rims. When the user sits on the toilet seat, a diaphragm is compressed which forces air into the container and deodorant/disinfectant into the toilet bowl. The diaphragm needs to be made of neoprene or any flexible material with sufficient memory to return to its original non compressed shape after compression.

  • Patent number: 8122522
    Abstract: The invention relates to metering dispensers for release of a product into a WC bowl of a toilet, comprising a fixing region which is constructed in order to fix the metering dispenser in the region of the toilet, in particular under a WC lid, and a storage container for accommodating the product. Such metering dispensers have the problem that the product can be metered only inaccurately and not very variably. This problem is solved according to the invention in that the storage container is constructed for accommodation of pre-portioned products and a delivery device which is constructed in order to deliver at least one pre-portioned product from the storage container into the WC bowl is provided.

  • Patent number: 8079094
    Abstract: A dispenser discharging antibacterial, self-drying disinfectant solution is suspended from an inside wall of a public rest facility stall to transport the solution through a length of tubing to an inlet port at a rear or side surface of a non-porous and non-absorbent toilet seat in filling a hollow therein below an opening in the top surface of the seat in introducing the disinfectant solution to be spread about the top surface in cleansing it of any generally sexually transmitted germs, viruses and bacteria that might be present.

  • Publication number: 20100269247
    Abstract: A water jet injector for a sanitary self-cleaning toilet seat device includes a foothold having a connector to connect with an external duct; a pipe installed at the front edge of the foothold and having two chambers; and two jet pipes each installed in its corresponding chamber and having a nozzle provided at the top edge of the jet pipe with a water outlet. The jet pipes are movable to and fro to clean the contaminated parts of the user's body with the cleaning water jet. Besides, a shade is stretched out of the pipe to cover the top edges of said nozzles so as to prevent the nozzles from being dirted by the soil and the user's body from being wetted by the residual water in the pipes.

  • Patent number: 7727465
    Abstract: A system and method for extracting active elemental iodine from the contact of water with stored crystal iodine and for introducing the extracted elemental iodine into a water supply line and/or otherwise making the extracted elemental iodine available for an intended use. The system operates by allowing a portion of the water entering from a water supply line to be redirected to a first housing where it makes contact with stored crystal iodine causing to extract active elemental iodine. The iodinized water leaves the first housing and enters a second housing where it makes contact additional stored crystal iodine to help stabilize the elemental iodine concentration. The system can be designed to provide the elemental iodine in more than one potency concentration through the use of a metering valve and different travel routes for the elemental iodine out of the second housing.

  • Patent number: 6745417
    Abstract: A toilet stool capable of using comfortably without cleaning is provided. The toilet stool comprises a main body 10, a seat 11, a cover 12, injection means 41 and 42, and a control means. The main body 10 can preserve stool temporarily therein. The seat 11 is formed on the main body 10. The cover 12 performs opening and closing operations by rotating about a horizontal axis with respect to the main body 10. The injection means 41 and 42 perform a cleaning operation by injecting pressure liquid for cleaning. The control means causes the injection means 41 and 42 to perform the cleaning operation on the condition that the cover is closed.

  • Patent number: 6622315
    Abstract: A toilet bowl deodorizing, disinfecting and washing apparatus. In one variation, the apparatus includes a flexible enclosure that contains a bellows, a high-pressure reservoir, a liquid reservoir, and a plurality of nozzles. The bellows, liquid reservoir, and nozzles are selectively placed in fluid communication with the high-pressure reservoir. In use, the flexible enclosure is disposed beneath a toilet seat (or is itself a toilet seat). Deodorizing/disinfecting/washing liquid, which is contained in the liquid reservoir, is admitted to the high-pressure reservoir. When a person sits on the flexible enclosure, the bellows compresses air that is admitted to the high-pressure reservoir, thereby pressurizing the deodorizing/disinfecting/washing liquid that is contained therein. As the person gets off the flexible enclosure, the high-pressure reservoir is connected to the nozzles such that pressurized deodorizing/disinfecting/washing liquid is dispensed.

  • Patent number: 6582668
    Abstract: A buoyant dispensing device for dispensing a material into a body of water. An inner receptacle contains the material and has apertures to permit the material to escape therefrom. A housing having an outer receptacle houses the inner receptacle therein and has corresponding apertures. The inner and outer receptacles are rotatable and fixable with respect to one another to enable a varying degree of overlap between the apertures to control the amount of material dispensed therethrough. Vanes circumscribe the receptacles and corresponding spokes and guard rings interconnect the receptacles and the vanes and keep the receptacles spaced a predetermined distance from other objects. The vanes absorb an impulse force from the body of water and impart the impulse force to the receptacles in the form of a rotational reaction force whereby the dispensing device rotationally and linearly displaces itself within the body of water.

  • Patent number: 6330723
    Abstract: A compressible, air freshening toilet seat adapted for being secured to a toilet bowl includes a cushioning top layer, a rigid bottom layer, an inner periphery, an outer periphery, a compressible chamber, and a plurality of receptacle structures. The top layer is formed of a resilient, cushioning material. The bottom layer has sufficient rigidity for supporting a body weight of a user, and is fixedly attached to the top layer about the peripheries. The chamber is enclosed and defined by the top layer, the bottom layer, and the peripheries. Each of the receptacle structures has an open first end with a retaining lip, and is defined at a predetermined location within the top layer or the bottom layer. Each of the receptacle structures is dimensioned and configured for receiving and removably containing an air freshening element and for permitting a sufficient amount of air freshening agent from the air freshening element to be directed into the atmosphere.

  • Patent number: 5383237
    Abstract: A new and improved toilet seat deodorizer apparatus includes a flexible, resilient air pump assembly shaped substantially in the form of a toilet seat, a connector assembly for connecting the air pump assembly to a toilet bowl, and an odor dispenser assembly connected to the air pump assembly. The odor dispenser assembly includes a first screened end in direct communication with air contained within the flexible, resilient air pump assembly and includes a second screened end in direct communication with air which is outside the air pump assembly and the odor dispenser assembly. When a person sits upon the flexible, resilient air pump assembly, a quantity of air is pumped from inside the air pump assembly, through the odor dispenser assembly, to outside the odor dispenser assembly to room air in the room in which the toilet is located. Rigid support members are connected to the flexible, resilient air pump assembly for supporting the air pump assembly a predetermined spaced distance from the toilet bowl.
