My folks installed that turf and never had a problem except when I would vacuum the dirt off of it, the black granules, which are designed to separate the blades, got sucked away.

You can replace those with sand my guy said. I will have a bunch left over if you want them.

They are rubber pieces and you mix them with sand. You can use straight sand and it will feel cooler but will be slightly more maintenance.

I bought the best they had on the market which will be replaced by the new best next week I'm sure.

Of course no one will warranty the install which us usually the pain part. I bet they would do whatever possible not to warranty the grass.
