Parts of a toilet bowl
By : Janeyshaa

The Bowl

The bowl is the part where the person sits on.The seat rests on the rim of the bowl and is attached by two hinges. The bowl has as part of its design a molded siphon section that is "S"-shaped.When a large quantity of water enters the body of the bowl through either flushing or pouring from a bucket, the water quickly reaches the height of the siphon section and overflows into the siphon tube. The siphon section fills with water. This siphoning continues as long as there is water available to draw from. When all of the water has been siphoned from the bowl and it is empty, air enters the siphon tube, which breaks the suction and causes that gurgling sound that we hear at the end of a flush.

The Tank

The tank is a reservoir of water that is used to create the siphon action in the bowl. This reserve of water is accessed by depressing the flush lever on the outside of the tank, which is connected to a chain inside the tank. The other end of the chain is connected to the flush valve which includes a bulb, which is filled with air and fits snugly into place in the large discharge hole on the inside bottom of the tank. This is what stops water from exiting the tank. Normally, the weight of the water above the bulb keeps it pressed into place even though the air inside the bulb would normally make it buoyant. The chain pulls the front part of the flapper valve up out of its blocking position and it then floats, still hinged in place, above the hole
