What is Synthetic K9Grass™?
K9Grass™ is the first artificial grass developed specifically for your dog potty! It has the following properties that make it the perfect synthetic grass surface for the Pet Patio Potty™:
- Knitted mesh backing with exclusive flow-through™ technology assures the best drainage possible.
- Antimicrobial (AlphaSan) incorporated into grass blades helps reduce growth of microorganisms and the associated development of odor.
- Short dense blade structure.
- Cleanable and durable.
- Superior to other synthetic turf products having perforated plastic backing. These products tend to hold more urine and develop odor more quickly.
When used in the Pet Patio Potty™, the odor control properties of the K9Grass™ coupled with the odor-absorbing litter below the dog potty grass surface provide the cleanest, safest, and most odor-free environment possible. K9Grass™ pieces need to be cleaned every 1 to 2 weeks depending on frequency of use. Cleaning can be accomplished by soaking the grass pieces in a tub, basin or bucket of dilute sanitizing or bleach solution. Because of the mesh backing, K9Grass™ pieces may shrink slightly when exposed directly to the sun or when cleaned. Many clients choose to purchase a second set of dog potty grass so they have a clean, dry set while the other set is being cleaned.
