Doggie Dooley 3000 Septic-Tank-Style Pet-Waste Disposal System Reviews

Review by Christin M. De Meo:

IF YOU FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY, THIS IS QUITE A JOB, BUT WELL WORTH IT! I INSTALLED 2 OF THE GALVANIZED STEEL ROUND TYPE…TOOK ABOUT 4 HOURS EACH WITH A FEW ‘BODY STRETCHING’ BREAKS. DEFINITELY GET A HEAVY-DUTY BRANCH/ROOT CUTTER…IF YOU ARE NEAR TO LARGE TREES, YOU WILL INEVITABLY COME UPON LARGE ROOTS. I WENT A BIT DEEPER BY 3-5 INCHES IN ORDER TO LINE THE BOTTOM WITH 2-3 INCHES OF ROUNDED BEACH STONE AS WAS TOLD IS DONE WITH REGULAR SEPTIC TANK INSTALLATIONS. I USED THE ‘AS SEEN ON TV’ AUGER FOR DIGGING AFTER GETTING 2 FEET IN USING A STANDARD SHOVEL. THE AUGER ATTACHES TO A STANDARD POWER DRILL AND IS ALSO SOLD AT CVS PHARMACY STORES (.99). IN ORDER TO REMOVE THE LOOSE DIRT AFTER GOING ABOUT 3FT. DOWN, YOU DEFINITELY NEED A POST DIGGER FOR ‘LOOSE’ DIRT REMOVAL. GET A GOOD ONE, OTHERWISE YOU’LL BE WORKING FOREVER TO GET THE LOOSE DIRT OUT FROM A VERY DEEP HOLE! USING THE SHOVEL AFTER 3FT. WILL CAUSE THE WIDTH OF THE HOLE TO GO BEYOND THE 14 INCHES AS THE HANDLE WILL RUB AGAINST THE SIDES OF THE HOLE. IF THIS HAPPENS, WHICH DID HAPPEN TO ME WITH MY FIRST INSTALLATION, YOU CAN STILL SECURE THE SEPTIC TANK BY PLACING (9) 12″X6″X2″ PAVER STONES (.69 EA. AT HOME IMPROVEMENT STORES)IN THE SHAPE OF A SUNBURST LENGTHWISE FROM THE HOLE EDGE OUTWARD TO DECREASE THE WIDTH ACCORDING TO HOW MUCH YOU OVERSIZED. AFTER PLACING THE TANK, FURTHER SECURE BY FIRST FILLING THE SPACES BETWEEN THE PAVERS WITH DIRT UP TO THE PAVER LEVEL (YOU’LL HAVE PLENTY OF DIRT)THEN PLACE MORE PAVER STONES BETWEEN THE SPACES OF THE FIRST SET, AGAIN IN A LENGTHWISE SUNBURST FASHION AND RIGHT UP AGAINST THE SIDE OF THE LID, AGAIN FILLING THE SPACES WITH DIRT. LAST, MAKE A CIRCLE WITH ADDITIONAL PAVERS WIDTHWISE AROUND THE TOP OUTERMOST EDGES OF THE SECOND SET OF PAVERS. I ALSO DID A SECOND OUTER CIRCLE OF PAVERS ON TOP OF THE FIRST SET PLACING OVER THE JOININGS OF THE FIRST PAVER CIRCLE…MY PAVERS WERE 10 POUNDS EACH, SO THAT EVEN WHEN MY MY 3 70+ POUND SHEPHARDS AND SIBERIAN HUSKY STEPPED ON THE CONTAINER, IT REMAINED SECURE AS I KNEW THEY WOULD DEFINITELY EXPLORE. I DID THIS SET-UP WITH MY SECOND INSTALLATION EVEN THOUGH I DIDN’T OVERSIZE THE HOLE, AS IT NOT ONLY SECURED THE CONTAINER BUT ALSO MADE THE DOG PEN LOOK MUCH NICER ALONG WITH PUSHING MORE DIRT AROUND THE EDGES AND ADDING SOME NEW RUBBERIZED MULCH AND A SMALL TENT COVER OVER EACH TANK SINCE WE’VE HAD LOTS OF RAIN LATELY IN NJ. SEE MY PICS!

THIS PRODUCT IS A GOD-SEND…NOT ONLY FOR ME & MY NEIGHBORS, BUT FOR THE TRASH COLLECTORS AS WELL AS THE ENVIRONMENT! HEY, YA KNOW WHAT KERMIT OUR LITTLE MUPPET FROG FRIEND WOULD SAY, “GO GREEN!” LOL

BEST BLESSINGS TO ALL! (Especially to ‘Man’s Best Friend’!)

UPDATE TIP!!! AUGUST 2, 2009

SAVE LOTS OF $$$ BY JUST BUYING REGULAR SEPTIC TANK ENZYMES…

CAME UPON A 3LB BAG OF SEPTI-TANK PROFESSIONAL STRENGTH SEPTIC TREATMENT FOR .99 AT HOME DEPOT BY ACCIDENT…READ THE LABEL ABOUT BREAKING DOWN WASTES WITH NATURAL BIODEGRADABLE ENZYMES, SO I THOUGHT IT WAS WORTH A TRY. I’VE BEEN USING IT FOR 2 WEEKS NOW…LOOKS THE SAME AS THE ‘RIP-OFF’ WASTE TERMINATOR BRAND…ONLY HAVE TO USE 1 TABLESPOON IN EACH TANK WEEKLY FOR 3 DOGS AND FLUSH WITH THE WATER HOSE (APPROX. 2 GALS)EVERY OTHER DAY AND SEEMS TO WORK FASTER AND BETTER! IF I COME UP WITH ANYTHING ELSE I’LL BE SURE TO POST AGAIN! ENJOY AND GOD BLESS! CMD

Review by J. R. Pearson:

I’ve been using this product for about 5 weeks and am completely satisfied. I had some concerns about the durability of the pyramid shaped model so I went with the galvanized steel model even though I only have 1 large breed dog. This model also came fully assembled and ready for the ground. The free scooper that was supposed to come with it was not included, so I was gyped there. The lid is hinged and opens easily but also will stay open for you which is great. I took some shortcuts on installation that have not affected operation. 1st, I started using a post hole digger but quickly went to the shovel. Don’t buy the diggers just for this job-they are not essential. I also didn’t dig the full 4 feet recommended. If you have good drainage, its not needed in my opinion. I dug deep enough to house the unit with an additional 8-12 inches of clearance and have experienced no problems. You’ll want to install this near the end of your water hoses reach away from the house. It doesn’t reek too bad until you open the door and flush the system with the hose. Thats when that liquified poop stirs up. I add stool about every other day and flush the system weekly. The enzyme has lasted this long(5 wks.) with half a bag left and I am pretty liberal with it. Buying the extra bucket of enzyme is inevitable.

Green Light Organic Bioganic Home & Garden Insect Contol Spray – 24 oz Spray #80224

A unique blend of plant oils approved by the FDA as food additives. Nonselective insect killer. Effective on most insects including ants, aphids, caterpillars, centipedes, chinch bugs, cockroaches, crickets, earwigs, fleas, flies, gnats, grasshoppers, millipedes, mites, mosquitoes, pillbugs (sow bugs), scale, spiders, ticks, whiteflies, and many more. Non harmful to plants. Can be used on vegetables, ornamentals, lawns and entire landscape. Product provides residual repellent effect for up to 30 days. May be applied to edible plants up to the day of harvest. Safe around children, pets and wildlife. The active ingredients in these Green Light Products are unique, patented formulations made from plant oils and other ingredients widely used as food and cosmetic additives. These plant oils kill insects by blocking specific neural pathways that don’t exist within mammals or birds. These plant oils attack the Octopamine neuro-receptors. Octopamine is a key insect neurotransmitter that regulates insect movement, behavior, and metabolism. The blockage of the receptor activity prevents the transmission of the Octopamine signals which leads to certain characteristic signs of toxicity such as excitation, hyperextension in the hind legs and abdomen, followed by immobilization and/or knocks down, followed by death. This process will begin immediately. Mortality can occur within minutes of application, but may take hours depending on the type of insect pest and concentration of product that contacts the insect directly. Bioganic can be used up to the day of harvest on vegetables and other edible plants.

I bought this product to battle aphids on my house plant. It sounds really great in description, but unfortunately my aphids couldn’t care less for it. I think they actually enjoyed it 🙂 So I had to go back to the real pesticides.

Starfrit Alternative Eco Pan 9.5 Inch Fry Pan Reviews

Review by John Fritz:

The non-stick properties are very good and I assume are a reliably non-toxic alternative to teflon-type products. One caveat I have is to treat the surface very gingerly. After only the first use I did notice a small, but deep, chip in the cooking surface. The cooking surface is black and the chip revealed a white pock mark. I used the utensil as advised with no cutting etc. within the pan. The only conclusion I came up with is that the chip occured during storage with other pots and pans in a cabinet I have dedicated to this purpose. Since then I store it on top of the stove after cleaning with no other utensils inside, on the cooking surface. No more scratches. I was disappointed to read that the warranty does not cover what the manufacturer calls “superficial” damage to the cooking surface. Be careful. If the pan continues in its’ current state for the normal life expectency of a pan I guess the extra care needed is worth the price of avoiding the toxicity of tradtional non-stick surfaces. Eggs slide right out without a spatula.

Review by Deborah Miserez:

The pan came damaged, a bit out of round. It wasn’t damaged intransit to me since the box was in excellent condition. So it was damaged before it was shipped to me. I kept the pan since it didn’t affect the cooking ability, it is a wonderful pan. I can cook with much less oil and it cleans up so easy…
