Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2015135567A1] A modular water application device (10, 300) may include a main body (20, 110) graspable along a portion thereof by an operator, an operable member (30) and an applicator head (40). The main body (20, 110) may house a flow control assembly (50) configured to enable the device to execute a control function relative to flow of water through the device. The operable member (30) may be attachable to the main body (20, 110) to interface with the flow control assembly to alternately start and stop flow based on a position of the operable member (30). The applicator head (40) may be attachable to an outlet portion of the main body (20, 110) to apply water passing through the applicator head (40) based on an application characteristic of the applicator head (40). The main body (20, 110) may include a plurality of attachment portions (60) in addition to the outlet portion (24). The attachment portion may be configured to receive a rear panel (70) or front panel (72) having different functional or ergonomic characteristics.
