I had this same thing happen when I tried SweatScoop. It turned to cement at
the bottom of the litter pan. I had to get a hammer to get it out.

This is a horror story.  It's true.  My cats will tell you it is.  One day,
several years ago, I decided to purchase clumping litter.  In those days I
was using Traditional, a brand put out by HEB supermarket.  Traditional is a
white litter, not too much dust, at that time very inexpensive. Then I saw
HEB Scoopable.  It wasn't very expensive so I lugged a couple of bags home.
Now, the horror part comes when you realize that I knew nothing about
clumping litter except that it clumps when hit with something liquid.  So I
poured the same amount of clumping clay into the cat boxes as I had with the
ordinary stuff.  Sigh! Once in a while I should read directions.  The litter
clumped to the bottom of the box.  Solid.  Cement.  Mixed with cat piss.  I
had to take all the boxes out to the yard and use a hack saw to get the
litter out.  Finally, hammer, chisel and garden hose got the boxes back to
usable state.  Five hours wasted.  Cats giggling inside, waiting to see what
I would do next.  I read the directions.  Needed was at least three inches
of litter per box.  Ten boxes.  Five bags of cheap clumping clay.  Ah.  It
clumped.  Did not stick to the bottom of the box.  Each perfectly formed
clump weighed about three pounds.  Hernia time. I purchased 5 bags of
litter, each weighing 20 pounds.  I filled up about 10 boxes.  Used about 5
of the bags, give or take a few grains of sand.  Half a bag to a box.  That
would be about 10 pounds of clay per box.  After all was said and done, I
got over 24 pounds worth of clumps out of each box. I wish someone would
make litter out of silver dollars that would triple when hit with a liquid
substance.  Used up an entire roll of garbage bags.  Sanitation department
workers had to be hospitalized for hernias.  It was around that time that I
discovered Feline Pine.  The cats were a little startled at having to do
their thing on something that smelled like wood and rolled around like
marbles but they got the hang of it finally.  Some like to bat the pine
pellets all over the floor.  They especially like to bat them over to the
door so when I come into the room I step rolly-polly pellets and go skidding
into a wall.  Need a book on cat behavior modification.


Spay and Neuter your cats and dogs and your weird relatives and nasty
neighbors too!
