It’s empty in here!
I had been using litter champ for quite sometime.. but on 3rd one the flap broke AGAIN! Plus the actual company at one point said there was one year warranty, just the other day my husband was on the phone with a rep. from the actual company and said it's a 5 year warranty? Also would not replace mine only the part., and then the lid cracked. And this company never improved that flap.. Those springs are chintzy.. I will never buy these again or deal with this company.
I bought one of these and for some reason you have stopped selling the refills.. cant believe you are conning people into buying these and not supplying the refill bags. The bin itself is excellent value and I have had it many years without and issue.
I started with the Litter Locker. Thought that was great until.....I couldn't get a refill cartridges for a very long time. So I switched to the Litter Champ and thought that was even better BUT now I can't get the refill bags and the Litter Locker cartridges are back AFTER I ditched the Litter Locker. I did try and email asking when the product would be in stock. I never received a reply. So how about a bit of "customer service" Zooplus.ie and let me know when I can get a refill bag ?
Litter Champ is very useful. I use it for one midsized cat. No bad odour, which is what it promises. But I do like to change content at least once a week and it is not as economical as the manufacturer promises! My last bag lasted cca.40 days. Unfortunatelly there is currently nomore refill bags at this seller. I pay 2x more now at amazon then I did on zoohit, not sure if they will deliver the product again.
I keep this in my cupboard under the stairs out of the way and so do have an air freshener because it's an enclosed space. But there really is very little smell. I have 2 kittens and it seems to last 1 - 2 weeks before being full. It's very easy to change and this bundle pack works out economical as well. No more going out to the bin twice a day in all weathers, fab.
I’m just about to order my 3rd litter champ in 4 years after the spring in the lid keeps breaking , other than that I find it ok
Had the litter champ for ages now. It's still going strong. My only concern is that the replacement bags r very expensive. I use alot as I've got 6 cats so I've got 3 large litter boxes. Other than that great item
Bought the Litter Champ first and used for 3 cats. Read reviews on the Litter Locker II and thought I would give it a go as the Litter Champ could be a bit fiddly to empty. The Litter Locker II was terrible in cmparison. The replacement cartridges didnt fit properly, it was terrible to empty and was smaller all round so required emptying more frequently. The Litter champ is streaks ahead. When combined with OKO Clumping cat litter it lasts a week. I wont be changing away from this again.
Life just got a whole lot better after we purchased the Litter Champ. It looks smart & works so well. Convenient & no smells. I give the outside a clean about once a week and when I change the cassette (which lasts 3 - 4 months with 2 indoor cats) I give the entire unit a clean so it needs little maintenance. However, after a couple of years' use the flap has finally broken off completely despite careful use. This is a weakness which I think should be improved. Let's see if it now gets smelly.
I brought this bin after I changed from flushable litter to clumping clay. I hadn’t used it as I was just scooping into compostable bags. But I got it out to use as my friend was looking after my two boys for a week while we were on holiday. Bless her she’s really not a pet person (very germaphobe) so I though it might make the task of poop scooping a little more bareable for her. Which it was, I must admit I was sceptical of how well it would seal the smell for a week. But it did! 😀
Used this for years along with wood pellet litter (turns to sawdust) and it works brilliantly. Its way better than using with bags or trying to flush down the toilet. Have never noticed any smells but perhaps this is masked by the wood litter (it absorbs smells pretty well) or by regularly changing. The flap is narrow and sometimes you can spill but it depends on hte size of scoop and how much you are trying to shovel in. A small price to pay for its compact footprint.
Scoop is rubbish, too many holes, get another if you want to go that way. The snap shut top in the bin is fabulous. They have missed a trick with the bin top, domed would have allowed a perfume unit to be stuck on. The bin liners are good but I have found the smallest size of a well known manufacturer works better for me, then let it drop into the liner, which also works perfectly. I had a sometimes smelly room before now it smells wonderful. I could do with another downstairs really.
I've not had this product long but prefer it to the litter locker - this seems to have a larger capacity, is easier to remove the bag of litter through the door and should be easier to use or normal bin liner or similar if you run out of bags. Instructions provided were clear. To improve: - The colour is kind of cream/beige. I'd prefer if the whole thing was grey or proper white - The holes in the scoop are too big - It would be better if the hole for the litter opened when pedal was pressed
Used by 9 cats Room has 5 large litter boxes (storage boxes) Other litter boxes are available elsewhere Litter used is fine and scented Use my own litter scoop which is smaller Needs changing every two days Could do with lid staying up on its own I bring the trays to the bin For me this is great as I check the trays on a regular basis and this is the room the cats sleep in so makes litter tray patrol a lot easier! Scented litter keeps the smell down so no problems there.
Once you can get your head around the way the bags go into the bin, its an amazingly efficient system. Why someone said they smell I have no idea. I have been using the Litter Champ for two years and its simply brilliant. My only complaint is they don't sell the bags singly.
My cat litter was flushable but tracking was an issue so I switched to clumping clay. Very little tracking but no flushing so Litter Champ provided the solution. To keep odours at bay I bag & tie the waste, keep the lid locked (this makes a difference for some reason) and with each emptying I clean the bin inside and out with antibacterial spray to start afresh for another week or two. Very handy and none of my guests have even noticed it, so it's innocuous as well. Recommended.
It is so easy- it is tidy, it does not smell and it get emptied every other week on bin day- for two indoor cats that is fab because you ignore it the rest of the time. The children use it as a bathroom bin too and because it is clean and tidy it is fab. If you fancied making biodegradable bags I would have two- one for wee litter which can go in our garden waste bin and one for poo which can't and actually a third for kitchen waste!
The top slot to deposit the soiled litter is not big enough so if you have a fully-laden shovel, it spills everywhere and you end up picking bits off the floor. Despite utilising plastic bags (double bagging) the bin now smells after a couple of months.
I love mine albeit a little noisy when opening up to remove the bag. I move the litter tray closer to the Little Champ and I only remove the amount of bag that has litter in it allowing a bit extra so as it can be tied, knot the end of the roll for the next day use, occasionally if the cat litter tray has only had a little use then I will lock the Little Champ lid and leave until the next day.
I'm really glad I bought this -- I don't need to think about soiled litter at all, I just pop it in here. It's very easy to remove a full bag and get an empty one by pulling down another length of the bag tubing that comes with it. So far I have been using it for two months with one cat and I haven't yet had to put in another bag cartridge.
I brought this Litter Champ so that I could avoid taking our kitten's litter outside every time. I am relatively happy with it as it looks good, sits nicely in the corner of our bathroom, but the only thing is that when the trap opens; the smell welts through the air like decomposing bat. I kid you not! We have had this bin for a good few months now, and I wanted to give it a fair review. It must be noted that we do not put the litter in the bin directly; we place it in a bag first. I have also thought of ways to eliminate the smell by cleverly purchasing scented baby nappy sacks to put the litter in, but that doesn't help either. I am about to line the bottom with a scented draw liner but I don't have much hope that it would work, but it is worth a try. I must say, that despite this flaw, I do not regret buying it. I only just hold my breath for the miller second that the trap is open for. Other than that, the smell is contained very well in the bin. The bin liners are very easy to change; just read the instructions on the box and yay-presto! It's in. And I have calculated that we probably go through 1 bin liner every two to three months. I purchased the additional liners when I brought the bin (3 pack) and the bin comes with one liner anyway. That means, by the end of the year we should need to buy a few more. Not bad at all. It is easy to wipe clean, easy to use, and I kinder like the scoop that it comes with better than the scoops that I have purchased for our growing kitten, who is now 9 months old (sept/15) Good purchase, I would definitely recommend, I only wish the designer could come up with a solution to that 3 second woof of smell. That is the only reason I didn't give it a 5 star. (by the way, even changing it every day doesn't help, it just adds to the waste of plastic)
the material the bags are made of really stinks. I find it almost unbearable and I'm talking about unused bags. In principle, a good idea but needs to be looked at again
So pleased I bought this - its easy to use, keeps smells locked in.
There are a few problems with the litter champ: 1) there should be a handle to make it easier to pick up 2) the bag material has such a strong and unpleasant smell.Why is this? Otherwise a very useful item
Good concept but has flaws. Firstly I think the inner flap needs to have a spring or leaver to pull the flap downwards so that we don't need to manually open flap. Secondly the opening is too small for litter shovel, even the supplied one. However I do find that it keeps the odour down. Grace Murphy (06/08/15)
In so glad I bought this at first I was thinking that's a lot of money for a fancy bin, but it is well worth the money and it does keep the smell away! The internal bags last me a month with 3 cats. I empty weekly and they are quite strong too so holds well.
I bought this and as well as a new litter box and am really pleased with both - Litter Champ does what it says 'Locks smells in' and is very easy to use.
So I bought this over a year ago and have not looked back since! It's a great idea to have the house smelling great again! As soon as my two cats go, we use it to move their litter into it... But Here is the tip: when I collect the list I actually collect it in a small plastic bag (like the ones you use to freeze food in - bought from tesco) - close the bad and then put the page in size littler champion... Now It's super sealed and it will never smell, even if it's full to the bring with other bags! Like this it's very convenient and I empty it once every two weeks! Result!
I love this. I have recently bought another to have downstairs for the emergency litter tray for my 2 x 22 yr old cats. It makes my life very easy and there is no smell. So as long as I empty the trays as soon as they are used there is no cat smell at all In my house. Love it!
I have owned a Litter Champ for about a year and I wouldn't be without it. It locks in smells (we put our clumping cat litter in swing bin liners first) then into the litter champ. Every fortnight it gets changed when we have our refuse collection. Couldn't be easier or more practical. So good in fact, we have one for our own bathroom. No more smelly bins!!
I don't quite understand how this is supposed to be "triple sealed". You still get a strong odour when depositing the waste into it. I need to put air freshener next to it to keep the room from smelling awful. It's certainly better than having to empty a bin every day, but I found it a bit disappointing after all the great reviews.
This product is decent for purpose: it stores the cat poop and eliminates odour to a relatively good extent, meaning less frequent runs to the trash disposal. I live in a small apartment on one of the upper floors so it is important that odours such as these are minimised as much as possible, otherwise they tend to pervade the entire flat, unless I intend to constantly run downstairs to dispose. At first, I was very pleased with this product because not having to run downstairs immediately after scooping is a great convenience. What I have found after a few weeks of owning this product, however, is that the bin itself and the bags, being made of plastic, have taken on the smell of the cat poo. This means that even if empty, the bin itself now smells highly unpleasant and the odour is starting to leach into the room that it is in. I have thought of placing a bowl of bicarb or silica crystals in the compartment to aid absorption of these odours but have yet to see how effective this will be. I think the product is an effective design but that it needs to be made of materials that do not absorb odours, such as metal. It would be useful to know if anyone else has found this happening too. Also, as stated by another reviewer, it is rather unpleasant when emptying and the smell lingers for a good while thereafter. Naturally this will also depend on how often you empty it. I tend to do this every few days. Unlike other users, I do NOT place the poo in a smaller bag before placing in the Litter Champ as I would like to reduce the amount of my household waste overall and it's also friendlier on my pocket. For an apartment, I still think this is one of the best solutions but I haven't used the other leading brand product to be able to comprehensively compare. Nonetheless, I know this has made my life much easier than placing the poo in a normal bin or having to run downstairs. If Litter Champ could be made in metal, I would not hesitate to purchase.
To go wiv the little champ bin.
I'm very impressed with this it makes a huge difference for me with 4 stinky moggies to cater for.i still bag the waste before dropping it in to the container and then on bin day it's so easy to open up cut off and dispose of the bag full of waste then simply tie it at the bottom ready to refill again.love it.just reordered the spare bags as it'll get used plenty.much nicer system for when I have pet sitter here too makes life easier all round.
I can understand why this product is so popular, it is perfect for my 9 cats and 1 kitten, it is so easy to use, no smell, no need to touch the item at all with your hands, just a simple foot peddle to press to open the lid, when it needs a good wipe I just set the lid to lock, then wipe clean, simple, my best buy in a long time.
We bought this for our 2 indoor kittens and it's been fantastic. You can put it pretty much anywhere in the house and as it locks in the smell so you'd never really know it was there - we did move it from the kitchen to the bathroom because there is a smell when emptying the bin, but only momentarily while it's open though you can't smell anything when it's closed. Great buy though, we definitely recommend it.
Bought this bin after recently adopting 2 kittens. As I live in an upstairs apartment, running up and down to the outside bin several times a day to ensure my apartment didn't smell like 'Crazy Cat Lady House' was very tiresome. I have been using this bin for 3 days now and I cannot believe how different things are! No odour, no mess! No tired legs for me! Highly recommended!!
This is one of the best value products for cat owners whose cats use litter trays, ever. I was slightly sceptical-especially at the relatively cheap price, but it's absolutely magic. Replacement cartridges last for ages (I change a the bag about once a week with two large British shorthair cats) and you must get at least 20 bags out of one cartridge. Clean, tidy, contains smells and saves endless trips to the outside bin. Such a simple idea, yet it works so well. Excellent.
I recently moved from a house with a garden into a 2nd floor flat - the Litter Champ has solved the problem of the smell of soiled litter - I cannot praise the product enough.
I have 4 indoor cats and this has been one of my best purchases for them to date. It is simple to put in the new bag and to remove the full one, and there is no smell whatsoever. The bag lasts approx a 5 days for me and the roll of replacements works out good value. The only thing that would make this perfect is if there was a strong handle on it for moving it between each litter tray, as it is quite heavy as it fills up.
