Indoor Potty for Dogs

I have always lived in apartments, and I've always had dogs, so I wanted to have a way of not having to take out my pup daily, particularly because when I go out to work, my elderly mother can't do it by herself. So, I had been using wee wee pads for the longest time, and then I started hearing about the indoor potty for dogs. There are many types, different brands, sizes, etc., but mostly, they are all the same. Some sort of tray to hold the urine drippings, and a patch of either real or artificial grass on top. I started with a beautiful setup called the Patio Park for over $200.00. It looked great, and the real grass looked incredible. My dog started using it almost immediately, but almost immediately as well, it started to stink. Changing the grass was messy and disgusting. Having the service that comes and changes the grass for you is too expensive and a luxury I don't need. So, I switched to artificial grass. It still stank, and it was still messy. So I sold that and went for the Pet-a-Potty, which costs from $200 to $1000! It worked better with the artificial grass, but emptying the container was an absolute disaster since it's shallower than I would have hoped. Maybe if I had a patio with a drain where I could hose everything off it would not have been that bad, but they promote these things for apartment "indoor" living. In short, I'm back to my wee wee pads. I buy them by the bulk in a medical supply online store, I put a washable rug underneath so I don't have to put them directly on the tile. The pads absorb the pee, I change them once or twice a day, and my balcony looks clean and there's no stink. I have used that setup inside as well, and the rubber lined rug ($15 in home depot, change them two or three times a year).
