Scoopfree Product description
The unit is a fully automated litter box solution which will keep your cats sand box cleaning demands well in order so you are not tied into cleaning your cats litter trey on a daily basis. It’s a set and forget system that has got all customers talking about its great features.
The unit was even proudly supported by Animal Planets being one of the best litter boxes on the market.
How does the ScoopFree work?
The unit works in conjunction with specially designed litter trays that fit flawlessly with in the units litter area. The crystal litter used for the prefilled litter tray is used to soak up the moisture of cat urine and effectively stops urine odor in its tracks. The cats feces are also affected by the crystal litter, soaking up the moisture and drying out the feces which insures there is minimal odor.
Once the cat has done his business the advanced optical light sensor system located on the ScoopFree is activated which detects the use of the waste box.
After the 20 minute delay period is finished the rake mechanism is engaged for scooping up the dirty litter and feces into the purple covered waste container to complete the cleaning phase, stopping the manifestation of contamination to the unused litter. The rake then retracts back to its normal idle stationary position running back over the litter, smoothing out the litter as it returns.
How to set up the ScoopFree?
The unit is so easy to setup a child can do it, the unit is made up of 3 main parts that need to be assembled.
