Not All Zeolites are Recommended for Artificial Grass
Zeolite is known for odor reducing capabilities in artificial turf. Zeolite is a negatively charged honey-combed molecular structure which absorbs liquid like a magnet and prevents ammonia from forming a gas which is the main cause of smell. It is one of the revolutionary upgrade to the artificial grass dog urine odor problems.
Zeolite has been used in synthetic turf since 2004 with positive and negative results.
Positive Results: The zeolite used helped control the urine odors.
Negative Results: The zeolite used had negative components which caused drainage issues and you had to use more pounds per square foot than the synthetic turf would allow. This brought the idea of using zeolite under the turf which brought more issues. When zeolite was placed under the turf, it didn't have the ability to absorb the urine and caused the urine gases to escape.
There are zeolite brands which do not have these same negative results with purity levels high enough to work on the artificial grass as infill.
All zeolites have their own specific DNA which is made out of volcano ash from the earth. Most volcano ash landed on top of mountain sides or desert landscape which mixed with chemical and biological components of the environment. Specific zeolites approved for artificial grass applications are made from volcano ash that has landed in water millions of years ago and has a purity of 97+ percent. This purity rate is the key component in the odor reducing productivity & drainage abilities of artificial turf.
Difference between zeolite and other infills for synthetic turf
Zeolite is different than other infills because zeolite infill will absorb liquid & pull any gases towards itself. It holds the gases until sodium ion (Na+) in rain water releases the magnetivity and the force of heavy rainfall will flush out the bacteria, forcing it through the turf into the ground. Other infills are solid and don't have the same abilities.
Important Information you need to know:
It is best not to water your turf from a garden hose when using zeolite for animal urine control because the hose water will be encapsulated in the zeolite granule not urine.
What zeolite company do I trust?
Because we are a non-bias website, it is up to the consumer to find a zeolite product which has been approved by several turf manufacturers and has the State of California Proposition 65 awareness seal. The zeolite must not have foreign specs of different colored sand. Pure zeolite is mostly one color. Some turf dealers change brand names of zeolite products. Don't trust zeolite packaged in plain white bags with just a logo. Make sure your sales person knows where the zeolite is processed from. It is a costly mistake if you choose the wrong product.
