Everything About Cat Genie Self Washing Self Flushing Cat Box
The catgenie is a cat litter box, which is designed that it works like a good cat litter box and then flushes away like a regular toilet. It is self cleaning and self maintaining.
They claim that they are able to do this is by using permanent washable granules, Which are also dirt, germ and odor free. They also never need changing.
It works when the cat uses it, the urine passes through the washable granules to the holding area below , if its poop the holder pulls out the clumps where it gets pushed into reservoir, the poop then gets liquified and flushed out of the toilet.
Once it has been flushed a veterinarian approved sanitizing solution mixed with water cleans out the bowl for germs . While this process is going on the genie hand scrubs and sanitizes the bowl to remove any residual waste and cleans it completely.
After the cleaning when the granules are wet, it then turns on the blower which blow dries the granules for use. With this whole process they want to make sure you will never touch cat litter, or wash the bowl ever again.
To set up you will have to attach the t-adapter that it comes with to a cold water tap, then you screw the catgenie water hose and put the second end of it in the toilet.
