Doggie Porch Potty

Porch Potty Premium made of all weather resin wicker over a steel frame waters & rinses itself clean using the built-in pop up sprinklers. The gravity fed drain hose empties it automatically. If you don’t have a drain it comes with a catch basin that works for rinsing it off each day.

This works well if you have a water source nearby (like a garden hose). After picking up any solids, turn on the water & the two water jets pop up & spray the grass clean with over 3 gallons of water. The synthetic grass covers 8 sq ft of area (2’x4’) to accommodate dogs from 5/120 lbs.

Rinse 1 minute & the water soaks the grass area with 1” of water. The drain empties the water & urine down the 14 ft drain hose during the second minute. The hose directs the water & urine to your patio drain. In 2 minutes it cleans & rinses to leave a fresh odor free grass area. No soap or harsh chemicals are needed. If you don’t have a drain it comes with a catch basin that works for rinsing it off each day.

The water timer makes it automated. It connects to your hose bib, & turns the water on & off every day for exactly 1 minute.

This product has never been used. Premium Porch Potty, the water timer, 2 odor eliminators, synthetic grass & scented fire hydrant
