Does the Kennel
Kit Work? -- An unsolicited comment:
Grant---This morning on his daily trek to the barn, my
returned to the house telling me I’d better get to the kennel,
“There’s water all over the place”. I opened the door and
was met with two to three inches of standing water, and
more water spewing from the pipe where the faucet was supposed
to be. The faucet had blown off of the water line in the
kennel from too much pressure. After shutting the water
off, putting the dogs out, and dragging all the sopping
wet blankets, rugs, and towels out the door, my husband
and I began sweeping water out the main door. After an hour
of sweeping, wet vacuuming and putting the fans back on,
our floors were completely dry and were ready to put the
dogs back on. I feel this is due to our using the Deep Seal
and Top Seal products we purchased from you. Now…off to
find a plumber. Pam Adams, KY
the Kennel Kit make concrete easy to clean?
Hi Grant---I just wanted to let you know that
all my Deep Seal is down now and I just received my second
order of Top Seal. I love this stuff and it is easy to apply!
The kennels that have been sealed with the Top Seal are
so easy to clean. I don't have to drag the pressure washer
around anymore, they now clean up easliy with a regular
garden hose and nozzle. I cant wait to get the remainder
of them done. Also want to say thanks for answering all
my questions, the fast shipping, and following up with me
on my progress. You have been a joy to do business with.

want to thank you for all of your information, education,
and advice on sealing and staining our kennel floors. We
couldn't be happier with the results! Not only do we get
many compliments from our customers, we've also had other
kennel owners in the area comment on the transformation
and the lack of odor. It really works! The liquid does not
soak into the floor; rather, it evaporates from the surface,
keeping bacteria and odors from taking over. I'm so glad
we found you and your products. You were very patient with
all of our many questions, and made the process easy to
understand. Worth every penny!
