So, I could say I saw this coming, but I was testing how long it would last before my construction ocd kicked in. Using linoleum has been working, but its time to replace it with something better. Laminate. I used linoleum on our poop board, because its what "everyone was using". Well, after six months of scraping most every day, it finally tore, and is driving me crazy. I stripped off the linoleum and am putting laminate on our poop board. Why? 1. Perfectly hard suface. The drywall scraper wont cut, scratch, rip it. 2. Perfectly smooth. Making it easier to scrap with no textured contour to hold poop in. 3. Durable. Linoleum is plastic covering paper basically, it tears easily. Esspecially when wet. Laminate is far more durable then linoleum, and water has no effect on it. Which is why it is the cheepest material used on kitchen counters. Thus, a large drywall scraper scraping poop on a laminate covered poop board is ideal, and will not get damaged over time. The scraper I use daily. PDZ. Since posting our coop, and taking second place in the 2014 coop contest, countless people have mentioned pdz to me. I completely understand the point of it. We have cats that use a littler box. So why not use pdz you ask? It costs money. Scrapeing poop is free.
