As pet owners, we think of our furry friend(s) as a part of the family. We make time to interact with them and to care for their physical needs. But that doesn’t mean that our fur-babies don’t create extra work for us. One of those jobs, in particular, is dealing with their calls of nature. But now making this easier – especially for dog owners- is the in-ground pet waste disposal system.
While an assortment of pooper-scooper products has been around for a while the in-ground pet waste disposal system is a relative newcomer to the pet care world. Touted as a way to clean up dog waste efficiently and in an environmentally friendly way, the in-ground pet waste disposal system is quickly becoming a pet owner’s favorite way to deal with pet waste.
Did you know that one medium-size dog can produce as much as 500 pounds of poop a year? That’s a lot of plastic disposal bags! But having an in-ground pet waste disposal system significantly cuts down on how many you are using for Fido.
How Does an In-Ground Pet Waste Disposal System Work?
The in-ground pet waste disposal system works much like a miniature septic tank. They work with enzymes and water to break down the poop. Those components are then drained into your ground over a period of time. The soil works like a filtration system that purifies the decomposed waste, so you don’t have to be concerned about contamination.
Benefits of In-Ground Pet Waste Disposal Systems
· Simple set up– The Outdoor Makeover team can determine the ideal spot to install the in-ground pet waste disposal system in your yard, then will dig a hole for it. It is then filled with water, digesters are added and then you can dispose of your dog’s poop with the tool of your choice. No plastic bags needed!
· The Southern climate – The in-ground pet waste disposal system will work in any climate, but does especially well in areas with warm climates. This is because it causes the poop to breakdown more quickly. Georgia definitely meets the warm weather aspect!
· Safe for your lawn – Although safe for the environment, it should be noted that you don’t want it installed near a vegetable garden. Also, you don’t have to be concerned about the tank rusting over time as it is made galvanized steel.
· No More Plastic Bags! – No more buying plastic bags to dispose of waste with- just use a scooper tool and toss it in the tank.
The in-ground pet waste disposal system is a great way to make life with your pets even more enjoyable. If you are interested in adding this feature to your landscape, be sure to contact the Outdoor Makeover and Living Spaces team today.
