As every cat owner knows, cats are fairly low maintenance pets. Unlike dogs, cats don’t require walking for exercising and potty time, as well as training, frequent grooming, and a lot of attention, which are things that all dogs require daily. Furthermore, cats also don’t really need a ton of space to play around and explore. However, there are still a handful of responsibilities that come with owning a cat. Obviously, there’s keeping their food and water bowls clean and full either daily or every other day, as well as regularly keeping their nails trimmed to prevent them from overgrowing, and also keeping their hair brushed to ensure their skin and hair remain healthy. Then, there’s also cleaning their litter box daily to keep it clean, which is probably the least appealing responsibility of owning a cat. The solution is getting a smart automatic cat litter box, as these devices can automatically clean themselves after your cat goes potty, requiring owners to empty them just once a week in comparison to cleaning a standard litter box daily. If you like the sound of that, then have a look at the PETKIT PURAMAX.
The PETKIT PURAMAX is a smart automatic self-cleaning cat litter box that features a large 76L pod with enough space for cats to go potty comfortably, an innovative spiral structure that’s designed to keep your cat safe at all times, a high-end 360º safety system that accurately detects your cat’s presence and immediately stops the unit’s operation to ensure their safety, an automatic sifting system that efficiently removes waste and is compatible with all types of clumping litters, a premium odor control system integrated with an automatic odor eliminator spray that keeps unpleasant odors at bay and ensures a fresh litter box after each use, and an extra-large waste container that can store up to 15 days of cat waste and is also tightly sealed to prevent unpleasant odors from spreading, while also boasting a built-in control panel with 2 button controls and a digital display, Wi-Fi connectivity, plus in-App controls via the PETKIT App, including 4 different cleaning modes, and also a detailed log with different tracked health parameters related to your cat’s health.
With this smart self-cleaning cat litter box, you can say goodbye to the frustrations of keeping a traditional litter box clean.
Now, let’s have a more detailed look at the PETKIT PURAMAX, see how this smart automatic self-cleaning cat litter box is designed to work, and go over everything that it has to offer both you and your cat.
DESIGN & SPECS
Starting with the device’s size, the PETKIT PURAMAX comes at a decently compact size, measuring just 24.41 inches long by 21.65 inches wide by 20.87 inches tall, making it small enough to fit inside just about any corner of your home without having it take up a lot of floor space within the room where you install it at.
We’d also like to note that the unit is heavy enough to stay stable at all times, weighing approximately 3.5 lbs. (when empty; meaning without having any cat litter.
Moreover, this smart automatic self-cleaning cat litter box also sports an elegant and truly minimalist design, and its body comes in a gorgeous Matte White color with a smooth finish, all of which allows it to blend in quite well with the rest of your furniture indoors.
On top of that, the unit also packs a high-quality and ultra-durable construction, as its outer shell is built of high-grade TPU plastic.
Despite its somewhat compact form factor, the PETKIT PURAMAX integrates a fairly large pod that measures exactly 20.47 inches in diameter by 18.89 inches tall and has a total capacity of 76L, which makes its interior spacious enough for cats up to 18 lbs. to go potty comfortably.
Furthermore, this smart self-cleaning litter box also features a 100% safe design, boasting a large and low entrance located close enough to the floor that helps to keep the entrance to its pod opened at all times, essentially prevents cats from ever getting stuck when going into it or out of it, thus ensuring they always have a safe use of the litter box.
In addition to that, it also has an innovative spiral structure that’s designed to keep your cat safe at all times, including before (when going in), during (while inside), and after each use (when coming out of it).
Moving on to the unit’s internal components. Firstly, to further help keeping your cat safe while using this smart self-cleaning litter box, the PETKIT PURAMAX comes equipped with a high-end 360º safety system that’s powered by 11 high-precision weight sensors and infrared sensors which work together to accurately detect your cat’s presence.
As soon as your cat’s presence is identified by these sensors, the unit’s 360º safety system immediately forces the device to stop working in order to ensure your cat’s safety.
For its automatic self-cleaning function, the PURAMAX integrates an automatic sifting system that efficiently removes waste from your cat’s litter once they’re done going potty, and this system is only activated after your cat’s presence is no longer detected (meaning a few minutes after they leave).
Know that this smart self-cleaning litter box comes together with 3 different types of sifting trays that you can choose from to equip the unit’s litter drum with, including a new upgraded honeycomb sifting tray (used for sifting litter types composed by finer particles), a larger particle cat litter sifting tray (used for filtering litter types composed by larger particles), and a cat litter remover tray (used for entirely emptying the remaining litter within its litter drum onto its waste bin for an easy disposal of that remaining litter).
It’s also worth noting that the PURAMAX’s automatic sifting system is particularly designed to be compatible with all types of clumping litters, including mineral sand litter, bentonite litter, tofu cat litter, mixed cat litter, amongst other types of clumping litters.
In addition to everything already mentioned, this smart self-cleaning litter box also integrates a premium odor control system that’s equipped with an automatic odor eliminator spray (the PETKIT AIR Purifier Smart Spray) which not only helps to keep unpleasant odors at bay, but also ensures that the litter box’s interior remains clean and fresh after each time your cat uses it.
Lastly, integrated at the bottom-side of the litter box, there’s also an extra-large waste container which can store up to 15 days of cat waste. Note that the litter box’s waste container is also tightly sealed to prevent unpleasant odors from ever coming out and spreading.
Best of all, each unit also comes together with a high-performance, sticky-free cylinder mat built of a special fabric composed by a nylon oxford cloth material that’s resistant to scratches and a non-woven fabric material which makes the mat impermeable to urine and that also prevents soft faeces from sticking to the cat litter box.
INTERFACE / CONTROL PANEL
For controlling the litter box’s operation, the PETKIT PURAMAX boasts a built-in control panel equipped with just two (x2) button controls arranged in a simple and user-friendly layout, which consist of a Change Mode button (to cycle through the different cleaning modes) and an OK button (to select the current cleaning mode), plus a small built-in digital display that informs users about the cleaning mode that’s currently selected.
Below these button controls, there’s also a small latch that’s used to open the litter box’s waste container.
For establishing a wireless connection with the unit’s mobile App (the PETKIT App), this smart self-cleaning litter box boasts Wi-Fi connectivity (supporting only 2.4GHz networks).
THE SMARTPHONE COMPANION APP – The PETKIT App
Via the PETKIT App, users can configure the litter box’s operation and cleaning mode, as well as select between 4 different cleaning modes, including Auto Mode, Manual Mode, Timer Mode, and Empty Mode.
In addition, the PETKIT App also provides cat owners with a detailed log containing different tracked health parameters related to their cat’s health, such as your cat’s weight, the frequency which their uses the litter box, and the duration of each usage, all of which will give you an insight with reliable information of your cat’s health.
In sum, this smart automatic self-cleaning cat litter box provides cat owners with an elegant solution for their cat’s potty time, making that responsibility easier to take care of on a bi-weekly basis, while also helping owners to keep better track of their cat’s litter box habits and their overall health.
