Bidet — a fixture with a hot and cold water supply intended for genital and perineal hygiene. Blowout action — a means of flushing a water closet whereby a jet of water directed at the bowl outlet opening pushes the bowl contents into the upleg, over the weir, and into the gravity drainage system. Blowout bowl — a non-siphonic water closet bowl with an integral flushing rim, a trap at the rear of the bowl, and a visible or concealed jet that operates with a blowout action. China — Non-vitreous china — ceramic material in which porosity results in a water absorption of between 0.5 and 1 5.0% of the original weight of the dry specimen (see Clause 6.1 ). Vitreous china — ceramic material fired at a high temperature to form a non-porous body with a maximum water absorption of 0.5% of the original weight of the dry specimen (see Clause 6.1 ). Critical level (CL) — the highest water level of a fixture at which back siphonage will not occur. Defect — Blister (large) — a hollow raised portion of the glazed surface of a fixture with a dimension greater than 3 mm (0.1 3 in). Bubble — a raised portion of the glazed surface of a fixture or a sand speck whose largest dimension is less than 1 mm (0.04 in). Crack — a fracture in the glaze or the body of a fixture, but not a dunt or a craze. Craze (crazing) — fine cracks in the surface finish. Discoloration — a coloured spot with a dimension greater than 6 mm (0.25 in) or specks or spots in sufficient number that a change in colour is produced. Dull or eggshell finish — a dead, flat, slightly matted, undeveloped glaze or semi-glazed finish with numerous very fine pinholes. Note: Dull or eggshell finish is not to be confused with a satin or matte finish used for decorative purposes. Dunt — a hairline fracture extending through the body of a fixture and caused by strains during manufacturing.
Fitting — a device that controls and guides the flow of water. Note: See ASME A112.18.1/CAN/CSA-B125.1 and CAN/CSA-B125.3 for definitions of specific types of fittings. Fixture — a device that receives water, waste matter, or both and directs these substances into a drainage system. Flood level — the level at which water will overflow a fixture. Flush cycle — the complete operating sequence of a water closet or urinal in emptying its contents, cleaning its inside surfaces, and refilling the water seal. Flushing device — a device for delivering water into a water closet bowl or urinal. Flush tank — a vessel that stores a predetermined quantity of water and includes a flushing device to discharge water (plus some through-flow from the water supply line) into a water closet bowl or urinal. Note: A common type of flush tank is a wall-hung vessel or a vessel close-coupled with the water closet bowl that is fitted with a fill valve and flush valve. Flush valve — a valve for discharging water from a flush tank into a water closet bowl or urinal. Pressurized flushing device — a flushing device that is employed in non-gravity flushing systems and uses the water supply to create a pressurized discharge to flush fixtures. Note: Flushometer tanks, flushometer valves, and electronically controlled pressurized devices are examples of pressurized flushing devices (see CAN/CSA-B125.3 and ASSE 1037). Flushometer tank — a flushing device that effectively enlarges the water supply pipe immediately before the water closet bowl or urinal by being integrated within an accumulator vessel affixed and adjacent to the fixture inlet. Flushometer valve — a flushing device attached to a pressurized water supply pipe that, when actuated, opens the pipe for direct flow into the fixture at a rate and in a quantity that enables proper operation of the fixture. The valve then gradually closes to provide trap reseal in the fixture and avoid water hammer.
