Pet Zone(R) Smart Scoop(R) Automatic Litter Box Rated the Top Performer by
Independent Testing Agency
FAIRPORT HARBOR, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 04/10/14 -- The OurPet's
Company (OTCBB: OPCO), a leading proprietary pet supply company,
announces that Pet Zone(R) Smart Scoop(R) Automatic Litter Box has
received a first-place rating as the top performer among top-selling
automatic litter boxes after extensive review by a North American
independent testing agency.
"We are extremely proud of the results," said Dr. Steven Tsengas,
chief executive officer. "They confirmed that the enhancements we
made were positive for the lifestyle consumer to make cat ownership
easier and more convenient in the challenge of odor control, waste
collection and disposal."
Smart Scoop is a convenient feline waste management solution. Using a
built-in sensor, it detects when a cat uses the litter box, waits 15
minutes to give the litter time to clump, then begins its automatic
scooping cycle, which rakes the box clean of clumps and deposits them
into a contained waste unit that controls odor with a carbon zeolite
filter. The waste unit is lined with disposable no-touch bags. When
the waste unit is full, consumers simply remove the bag, tie it, and
toss it. Maintaining the litter box has never been easier!
Pet Zone engineers made technological enhancements to the Smart Scoop
system that include a refined motor unit for more reliable and
quieter performance, internal metal gears that won't break like
plastic gears in competing products, improved rake design, and
enhanced litter collection performance featuring a higher, angled
deflector that ensures clumps are deposited into the waste unit
rather than outside the pan.
The independent testing agency found Smart Scoop is 75% quieter than
other leading brands and is therefore unlikely to be distracting to
consumers or startling to cats. Additionally, the system was lauded
for its rugged and reliable power unit and its ability to scoop even
the heaviest clumps. The Smart Scoop, it was reported, saved
consumers money, too. Because the unit's "scoop and dispose" action
captures only waste and not clean litter, the agency reported that
Smart Scoop offered a "best value" proposition -- consumers can
easily save $199 per year on the cost of cat litter when compared
with the annual cost of operating competing automatic litter boxes.
Comments from a recently conducted nationwide consumer-testing panel
were favorable as well. A tester from Canton, OH, remarked, "The
clean-up is easy, my cats are using it with no issues, and the
self-cleaning helps keep my dogs from sniffing around!" Additional
panelists noted Smart Scoop's quiet operation, ease of use, odor
control, and convenient operation.
Smart Scoop accessories include replacement waste bags and carbon
filters along with Pet Zone Odor Control and No Stick Litter Box
Sprays. The Smart Scoop Automatic Litter Box, along with accessories,
can be purchased from Amazon.com.
