TODAY’S PATENT- SYSTEM FOR PREVENTING TOILET OVERFLOWS
The System for preventing toilet overflow was invented by Howard Mankin (New York), Peter Chapman (Sechelt), Steve Kazemir (Coquitlam), Derek Pyner (N Delta) on the 25th of April, 2000 bearing patent number US6052841A.
This current invention is providing the system to restrict an overflow of a toilet bowl. The system contains a sensor fixed in a toilet bowl area top on normal water level. When the water is above the normal level, then it gives the signal that is warning through the sense of water level above set level. The system connects the plates to generate electricity to supply the sensor and warning alarm. Nowadays all wiring and fixation have been done inside the house, so system plates are set outside the house, and all wiring has been done inside. Thus electricity generates and supplies to a sensor and when the time arises it gives the warning to control the toilet bowl by flushing. There are four to five warning alarms for the period of three to five seconds each and the final remains longer time. It is also involving a valve connected to a water conduit for feeding the toilet bowl.
