If anyone is thinking about buying the corded one, have a look at these instead:

https://www.amazon.ca/Oral-Breeze-Quick ... 000H68J2S/
https://www.banggood.com/Dental-SPA-Ora ... rehouse=CN
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Nicefee ... 49255.html
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2016-Ne ... 91461.html

I shelved my corded waterpik after buying the above.

1. No reservoir to refill
2. No noisy motor to listen to.
3. Doesn't have to be plugged into the wall, you can use it on a faucet that's not near a electrical outlet.
4. Doesn't take up counter space.
5. Super small to stow away, the whole thing fits in your typical small ziploc sandwich bag. All of the above are smaller than both the cordless and corded waterpik.

Overall, the products above are FAR superior compared to the waterpik concept.

The only reason why you would get the cordless Waterpik is if you travel a lot, and if you don't, then's no point of getting the cordless Waterpik.

I'd recommend the corded one if you'll be using it at home. Sometimes I'll fill it a certain amount and it's not enough then I get lazy to refill and just rinse. It has taught me to fill it up a bit more and empty after each use. I feel like this one would get me into bad habits of going "good enough"
Uh, yeah, I'd like to speak to a Mr. Tabooger, first name Ollie.

Why is it a pain to refill?

I don't mind if it's not too bad. I am more concerned with the battery.

Costco has this version for $80 or $90, can't remember exactly the price so don't quote me on it and it's currently not on costco.ca: https://www.amazon.com/Waterpik-Waterfl ... B01GR1HY86

I have this for one bathroom: https://www.amazon.ca/Oral-Breeze-Quick ... 000H68J2S/ I bought this first to try out this idea.

Then I bought another one for another bathroom: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2016-Ne ... 91461.html

I like the aliexpress one more, it comes with more tips and you can fine tune the pressure stream by using the metal lever, so convenient and you can spend 10 minutes or as long as you want without having to refill anything. I use it after almost every meal at home to flush out anything that might stick to your gum or in between your teeth (vegetables, fruit bits, nut bits, etc).

The amazon one has a quick release to easily remove it so it's easier to put it away, although I never use the quick release feature as just leave it on at the faucet at all times.

Both of these are easier to clean than the waterpik, just hose down the tip like a toothbrush and you're done, no reservior to empty or clean and no outlet to unplug.

I had one of these and they provide no where near the pressure you need to floss your teeth. These tickled my gum lines more than flossing them

Are your gums actually cleaned by this faucet pik? For example do you notice erm... debris getting out?
If you try traditional flossing after using the faucet pik, you can see if the pik truly did a good job cleaning.

Thanks for asking - was thinking the same thing. I love my Gentle Glide floss bought in a multi-pak from Costco. Is so easy to get everything super clean. I wonder about the effectiveness and if it could be too harsh for gums for some.

I also believe in this product, the corded one that is. It has enough water to floss the front and back sides of my teeth with just a little left over to cover the areas that need a bit more attention.

Like a user mentioned earlier in this thread. My hygienist has noticed a lot of improvement on my teeth and gums. I was on the verge of gum loss and this product has helped stabilize it.

I was not very proactive in my flossing meaning a few times a week and I still have those bad habits now.

Then you probably have a faulty one with the very wide tip that lowered the water stream or you probably didn't know how to use it. I will say the amazon "oral breeze"'s pressure is lower than the aliexpress one as the aliexpress's dental spa's tip is a lot smaller than the Oral Breeze's tip, which results in a higher water pressure. You need to turn on your tab on the max if you want super high pressure. The pressure on both of the oral irrigators are more than enough to cut my gums. But, if I had to buy it all over again, I wouldn't bother with the amazon one or the waterpik.

I have the waterpik and these oral irrigators. The waterpik is collecting dust and hasn't seen a drop of water in the reservoir after I started using the faucet type. That's my personal preference and my experience. You're free to buy both and decide which one you like. The water pressure is adjustable on the aliexpress one via two ways, 1) the built in metal lever, and 2) your faucet lever. Turn on the faucet lever to max and you will have tons of adjustment on the irrigator's water stream pressure. If 1 is at max and 2 is at low or off then of course you won't have water.

The main thing I really didn't like about the waterpik is that the noise was really irritating, and it took up counter space. The thing I don't like about the faucet type is the tip you get might have too large of an opening, this means you have to turn the water faucet on high, that's mostly quality control issue from the vendor you're buying from.

On a side note, the corded waterpik is mostly a North American product as the countertop surface in North American bathrooms are larger to hold the corded waterpik, the cordless Waterpik or the faucet type is a lot more popular than the corded one in Europe or countries where the bathroom sink is just a sink without a countertop or with very little countertop space.

The faucet pik may have its advantages, but there is one problem - it is not clinically proven, unlike the Waterpik.
Waterpik has been proven effective in numerous clinical studies. And we know what water pressure (psi) is required, and we also know that the pulsing action of the water jet is essential in achieving the effectiveness shown in those studies.

Faucet pik may be similar, but you cannot assume it is equally as effective as Waterpik without clinical studies.
First its water pressure is unknown, and dependent on your main water pressure. You need at least 50-90psi as used in clinical studies. OTOH, Waterpik has consistent and known water pressure.
Faucet pik also does not have pulsing jet, and this could impact on its effectiveness.
And that's why you need the reservoir, electricity and noisy motor.

I am sure Faucet Pik would be better than not flossing. But I doubt it has the same effectiveness of Waterpik - until proven otherwise.
