This invention relates to improvements for terial which'acts' as a sealing gasket between
water closets and more particularly to a toilet seat
that is ventilated to remove obnoxious fumes or
odors "from a toilet bowl while in use; and the
5
invention consists of certain novel improvements
in the details of construction and combination
of the component parts thereof.
.
' The inventiontogether with its objects and
advantages will be‘ best understood from a study
10
of the following description taken inconnection
with the accompanying drawings wherein?
\ gure 1 is a side elevational view of a water
the seat 9 and the top edge of the bowl 5. Thus
it will be seen that with the seat 9 in lowered
position or in a position of rest on the bowl 5 5 ’
substantially ‘a sealed joint is provided between
the bowl and its seat.
‘ For the remaining portion of its width the bot
tom l2 of the seat 9 isprovided with slots or air
holes l5 and extending from the back of the seat 10
9 is a conduit pipe section I6. The conduit pipe
section. l?‘is connected through the medium of a
union I8 with a pipe section l9 that is provided
closet illustrating'the application of the inven - with a pair of integral branches 20 that straddle

Referring to the drawings by reference numer
als it will .be'seen that 5 indicates generally a
conventional toilet bowl; 6, the ?ush tank; ‘I the
pipe connecting the tank 6 with the bowl 5 and
8 a hollow walllstructure.
In accordance with the present invention there
is provided for the bowl 5 a seat Q'and a lid or
seat cover In.
'
The seat Sand lid In are hingedly connected
together and hingedly mounted at the rear of
the toilet bowl 5 through the medium of a pair
of conventional hinges II.
In accordance with the present invention the
toilet seat 9 which may be constructed of any

A pipe section '2! isiprovided with a pair of
branches 22 complemental to the pipe branches
20 and branches 22 are connected with branches
20 through 'the medium of unions 23 disposed at
opposite sides of the pipe ‘I.

Connected with the pipe section 2| as at 24 is a
relatively short pipe section 25 one end of which
is formed into a substantial spherical or ball 26
that has a working fit within a-socket 21 pro
vided on one end of an intake pipe 28.
.

Pipe 28 extends through the wall 8 and is
connected at one end as at 29 to the intake side
of a casing 30-.

Leading upwardly through the wall 8 and connected with the outlet side of the casing 30 is an 30
exhaust or discharge pipe 5|.

Casing 30 is concealed. within the wall 8 as
shown in Figure 1 and arranged within the case
ing is a fan 32 driven from‘ an electric motor or
other suitable source of power 33 also arranged.35
within the casing 30 as-clearly shown in Figure 4.
It will be. seen that by providing the ball joint
connection 26, 21v between the pipe sections 25
and 28 seat 9 will be free to. swing on the hinges
_H to either raised' or lowered position, optionally. 40
In connection with the above it will be noted
that the under side l2 of the toilet. seat is of
suitable material is hollow as best shown in Fig- - materially greater width than the top edge or rim
