"We had Global Syn Turf installed about 5 weeks ago. We were told it was manufactured in California, Georgia, and Florida. In fact, it is made in China. The problem we have is multicolored striping. We followed the procedure that was spelled out in the written warranty and encountered extremely rude responses from everyone we spoke to.
