Self-cleaning cat litter: how it works

Generally one self-cleaning cat litter requires a simple installation in which it is necessary to provide an inlet for cold water, on the wall, as if it were a washing machine or taps, and then also a power outlet is needed.

When the animal does its needs, the liquid goes away from the grains to the bottom, in the base of the self-cleaning cat litter, and there everything is washed. There are litter boxes equipped with real cleaning "hands" that take the feces and bring them into the pump where they dissolve.
Then there is one sanitizing cartridge which is used to clean the grains and their container from germs and odors in order to restore the situation, complete with a fan to dry them so they are ready for a new test. Meanwhile, the dirty water already used in washing and the feces liquefied they are discharged into the toilet, in the house drain.
