1) BIGGEST issue, tracking. The granules track all over the house. This seems to increase with time, this is because their cleaning solution is sticky and it builds up over time until you take the whole thing apart and rinse it down.
2) Clogs. This is the "three beep" error. I get poop clogged somewhere in the unit or drainage line and I have to blow it out with some canned air.
3) Dirty sensor. This also causes the "three beep" error ("the unit isn't draining").
4) It's a pain in the *ss to have to tear the unit down and scrub and rinse the whole thing every 4-6 months if you want to keep the unit running smoothly.
This all changed with the RESET DEVICES. I was the first to use an EEPROM programmer and later one of CatMan's devices. I have been refilling for over a year now, and ALL of these problems have been eliminated by switching from whatever their "sani solution" is to SIMPLE SOLUTION EXTREME. I use it straight (undiluted) in the cartridge.
After over a year of using SIMPLE SOLUTION EXTREME, I opened the unit because their stupid cheap lock pin on the arm broke and I had to replace it. When I opened the unit up, the layer of fine brown poop that is typically coating the bottom of the unit under the bowl in 4-6 months time was NOT THERE! If I feel the granules, the typical stickiness is also NOT THERE. There are NO odors, I have not had ONE clog, and my sensor is still going without needing cleaned.
And NO, I have not had the SIMPLE SOLUTION EXTREME "dissolve" or "dry out" any tubes or seals or have any of the silicone cartridge nipples leak from repeated use. Don't believe that crap, it's all a ruse to get you to not use the reset devices.
So I recommend to everyone to SKIP this new stupid "CatGenie 120" that is really just a ploy by CatGenie to make it so you can no longer refill cartridges. (There is NOTHING new and improved on the unit's function, just some minor changes to the firmware like the cat activation to make it seem like you are getting more when you are really not, it isn't worth it by being FORCED to use that sticky messy "sani solution".)
I also want to condemn CatGenie for their illegal harassment of the reset device makers (directly) and their customers (indirectly). I don't know what to advise customers who want to switch to SIMPLE SOLUTION EXTREME as CatGenie illegally forced reset device makers off the net. All I can say is try as hard as you can to find one of these devices SOMEWHERE.
Also be sure if you want to emulate my experience to get SIMPLE SOLUTION EXTREME, not just the regular SIMPLE SOLUTION.
