PetSafe® Sweep One™ Advanced Auto-Cleaning Litter Box System
$200 down the drain
Bought this "upgrade" after the nature's miracle box broke after a month. $200 down the drain. it pops and snaps and has finally broken having it less than 3 months. We are going back to the old fashion litter box. These expensive items look good on the box but are horribly crafted products. Save your money, don't buy this.

The clicking sound that it makes us scared. We stopped using it. The bookshelf works so much better. We always used the old litter box. We refuse to use the new one.

There is one major design flaw. There is a white plastic "rake guide" near the front of the box. The plastic guide rails are about 1/4" apart from each other. When my cats urinate on the rake guide, there is no room for the litter to properly clump, so instead, it turns into a cement like sludge and clogs up the rake guide. When the rake comes through and tries to clean, it gets stuck in the urine/litter cement and makes awful grinding and cracking noises (even worse at 3 am). After awhile, the motor wears out and the rake stops its upward motion, so no litter makes it into the dump bin. Same problem with each of the three replacements sent to me by the manufacturer. An automatic litter box should require attention once or twice a week, not multiple times per day if my cat happens to use the bathroom near the front of the litter box.

Breaks After a Month
We bought this product and within a month we had problems. The ramp to the hopper was getting clogged up and then if you're not there to clean it out (i.e. if you go on vacation hoping it will work for a week) the rake mechanism will break. This happened with two different units. Petsafe is good to deal with, but its just not worth the money. We used Tidy Cat Multi Cat clumping litter.
