Title: OUTLET VALVE FOR A FLUSH TANK AND FLUSH TANK HAVING AN OUTLET VALVE
Abstract:
The invention relates to an outlet valve (1) for a sanitary flush tank (30), in particular a flush-mounted flush tank, comprising a valve housing (4) and a valve body (7), which is guided in the valve housing and is designed as an overflow tube and has a seal (8) associated with a valve seat (9), wherein the valve body (7) is provided with at least one pulling tab (2, 3) for lifting the valve body (7) and with a buoyant body (10). In order to be able to install such an outlet valve more easily in a flush tank, in particular a flush-mounted flush tank, and to be able to remove such an outlet valve from the flush tank more easily in case of maintenance or repair, the valve housing (4) according to the invention is provided with a spacer (26) at the upper end of the valve housing for orienting and fastening the outlet valve (1) in the flush tank (30), wherein the pulling tab (2) is pivotably connected to the valve body (7) and the spacer (26) has an abutment (26.9) associated with the pulling tab (2), which abutment acts as a pivot point for the pulling tab (2) such that the pulling tab (2) can be moved from an upright position to a folded-over position and the valve body (7) connected to the pulling tab (2) is lifted with respect to the valve seat (9) in the folded-over position of the pulling tab (2).
