EASY TAP, made up of chamber (6) inside of which is entrance flow (7) and exit flow (8) situated between (7) and (8) is ball with hole (9) with rubbers (10) on each side of ball with hole (9) on left side of central part of ball with hole (9) is an attached arm (11 ) which has constant direct contact with piston (12) on the opposite side of arm (11 ) it has constant direct contact with spring (17) which is at- tacted to body of faucet (1) CHARACTERISED due to the location of chamber (6) situated at the base of faucet (1) where button (13) screwed to piston (12) that crosses tube (14) which is inside lid with screw (15) that is screwed in side grooved entrance (5).



The present patent model of a utility, has the objective of model easy tap, for use in bathrooms and similar, which original cons truction was given with the aim to improve it ' s use and efficiency rega rding the similar existent ones.

There are already known faucets that have a tendancy to economize water through manual actuation of the flow and closure through gears, springs and levers.

Having in mind the wide use of this type of faucet, some drawbacks can be attributed to it, for example, in washing the face, before moving your hands back to the beak of the faucet, it is necessary for the user to make certain other movements besides cupping his hands beneath the beak of the facuet to the face and vice-versa.

Another drawback is, when you wash your hands, the delayed closure of the flow of water is unsatisfactory as the water does not flow precisely as and when it is required.

Another drawback is the quantitiy of water that is lost during the useage of these type of faucets.

Having in mind these problems and in the purpose of surpassing them, the solution was developed in easy tap, the object of the present patent, which consists of a button located in the under part of the faucet near to its base, this button upon being pressed with the tips of the fingers, will then manually and simultaneously cause depression of the arm of the piston located inside the tap to ma novere its connecting lever attached to a ball with hole through which upon being turned by its connecting lever will open the flow of water, during this process, water is being released into the cupped hands of

the user, upon release of button, all pieces as described will return to their original positions, driven by a spring, behind the lever which is fixed to the body of the faucet, thus closing the liberation of the flow, such a button solves three drawbacks: 1- Unescessary movements, the button to activate the tap, upon being pressed with the tips of fingers will simultaneously release flow of water into cupped hands thus preventing any other unescessary movements; 2- Instantaneous closure upon taking hands from button beneath tap; 3- Solving the problem of wasted water. The attached drawings show the arrangement in easy tap, the object of the present patent, in which;

Fig.1 illustrates a view in perspective of the mounted tap cut in half.

Fig.2 shows in detail the interior of the faucet and certain peices cut in half.

Fig.3 illustrates a view in perspective of the mounted tap as it would appear from the outside.

Fig.4 representes an outside view of the sequence of peices as they would be arranged from within the tap; In accordance with the attached illustrations the model of easy tap, the object of the present patent, consists of one tap 1 without an above/overhead opening, endowed with three circular inferior openings, being an entry of water 2, an exit of water 3 and an opening 4 that has in its interior behind the inner grooved entrance 5, chamber 6, as shown in (fig.2) inside chamber 6, between entry flow 7 and exit flow 8 will be placed ball with hole 9, in each side of ball 9, will be placed a rubber 10, and arm 11 will be fixed in ball with hole 9 near arm

11 in its left side will be a spring 17.

So, the form of actuation and closure of the flow is different from the taps we see in general use, upon pushing button 13 the attatched piston 12 is simultaneously pushed, causing arm 11 to slide o the left, opening the flow of water, upon removing tips of fingers from button 13 spring 17 will then move causing all pieces to return to original positions, closing the water flow.
