We have recently laid latex artificial grass & the seller suggested we use PE-51 to eliminate pet urine smells – we had considered the Zeo-fill stuff made by the same people but turns out the pile of the grass is too short to allow the infill of this product. (Unfortunately we didn’t know that before ordering) So really wanted to know how this works & how often we would need to use etc. The area we have is about 17 SM & we have two dogs.

First of all latex is not pet frendly it absorbs dog urine and once dry will really smells, 2nd company’s like to sell short plie artificial grass around 26mm because its low in face weight and more profit can be made from the sale. I would ask the seller how can they sell latex backed grass and call it pet friendly. Pet friendly grass is only made from the polyurethane backed artificial grass and your also right zeo-fill can not go in to a low face weight product. Using PE-51 will eliminate pet urine smells but only to around 65% but it will help you. For first time application use 150ml of PE-51 and put in watering can, Fully fill the can with water and water your garden, Let set for 30 minutes. Do this 3 times every 30 mins. Then routine maintenance every 14 days 75ml.
