Water dispenser description
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
1. Field of the Invention
The present invention relates to cover devices for bottled water
2. Description of the Related Art
Bottled water devices typically provide a sight with poor aesthetics
and not infrequently these devices collect dust and other matter
floating in the environment. Users gathering around these devices
not infrequently lean against it or in other ways touch it thereby
increasing the chances for the transmission of diseases. Also, microorganisms'
development is minimized when the bottled water is not exposed to
There has been no prior cover for bottled water dispensers designed
to fulfill the functions of the one claimed here, including its
ready mounting to existing water dispensing apparatus, with the
added aesthetics and space for advertising announcements.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
It is one of the main objects of the present invention to provide
a cover for bottled water dispensers that can be readily installed
in most of the existing designs for such dispensers and that can
effectively prevent users from coming in contact with it and to
prevent the bottled water from exposure to sunlight.
It is another object of this invention to provide such a cover
that includes sufficient space that is suitable for the placing
of advertising or sponsor's messages.
It is still another object of this invention to provide such a
cover that can still readily show the amount of water left in the
It is yet another object of this present invention to provide such
a device that is inexpensive to manufacture and maintain while retaining
Further objects of the invention will be brought out in the following
part of the specification, wherein detailed description is for the
purpose of fully disclosing the invention without placing limitations
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
With the above and other related objects in view, the invention
consists in the details of construction and combination of parts
as will be more fully understood from the following description,
when read in conjunction with the accompanying drawings in which:
FIG. 1 represents an isometric view of the cover subject of the
present application mounted over a bottled water dispenser.
FIG. 2 shows a rear elevational view of a water dispenser and bottle
wherein the present invention has been installed.
DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT
Referring now to FIG. 1 where the present invention is generally
referred to with numeral 10 it can be observed that it basically
includes upper cover portion 20 and lower cover portion 40 and these
two portions cover substantially the entire structure of the dispenser
and bottle that it holds. Upper cover portion 20 is made out of
an opaque material that prevents the sun light to penetrate thereby
protecting the water inside the bottle.
Upper portion 20 has substantially the shape of a cylindrical sac
with cord member 22 at its opening. It is also possible to use an
elastic member or any other equivalent means for adjusting the opening
to fittingly follow the neck of the bottle being covered. Longitudinal
slot 24 is provided to permit a user to see the amount of water
left in the bottle in order to determine whether replacement i s
Lower portion 40 has substantially a rectangular shape that cooperatively
follows the shape of a typical bottled water dispenser D and it
includes elastic cord members 42 in the back that permit a snug
fit around dispenser D. Openings 43 permit cord member 42 through
in criss-crossed arrangement in the preferred embodiment. Opening
44 is provided at the front of dispenser D for ready access to the
water outlet valves V of dispenser D.
Side areas 46 48 and 49 are suitable for the display of any advertising
or message. The same is true for most of the surface of upper portion
20 which is only interrupted by longitudinal slot 24 that serves
the purpose of permitting users to determine the amount of water
left in the bottle and can be seen through the transparent window
27 that is preferably made out of a transparent flexible plastic
It is believed the foregoing description conveys the best understanding
of the objects and advantages of the present invention. Different
embodiments may be made of the inventive concept of this invention.
It is to be understood that all matter disclosed herein is to be
