I actually love this

published

I was not sure if it was waterproof when I got it but when I bought the product it was advertised as waterproof anyway I did not use it for awhile because of this concern but as of lately I am using it in the shower which makes the whole process 100% easier I love it, the only thing I wish was different would be the whole to fill was bigger.

Purchased in March 2019 at Catch for $119.00.

Love it

published

Best thing I ever purchased. Thought regular floss was doing the trick. I was very wrong. This has 5 different nozzles for hard to reach areas. Have to use with warm water due to sensitivity.

Amazing, couldn't live without it!

published

My gums are so much better for using this product! when I don't use it for a few days I get sore gums and my dentist always assumes I'm flossing, but my gaps are too close to floss properly so this is my only option. I',m very happy with this product. It lasted 3 years before needing a new battery (it's not possible to replace them) and i'm now on my 2nd waterpik. The battery model is very convenient and I have taken it overseas with me a number of times.

Water great pik!

published

This is one of those rare product types that amazes me every time I use it and makes me wonder how I lived without it for so long. Sooooo much quicker and simpler to use than dental floss that I now use it up to three times a day instead of the three times a year I'd use dental floss and I spit out a mouthful of tiny food fragments instead of spitting blood! Being cordless is great and I am still on the first charge after 2 weeks use. The only potential future negative is that the switches are a bit flimsy, so I fear for its longevity, but otherwise it is great so far.

I love it

I really like this product! Easy to use and also wireless. Make me feel my teeth so clean after using it. Even though I brought the most expensive phillip sonicare toothbursh, I can still see stuff coming out after using the water flosser ( and I knew I should use it before brushing my teeth

Never had one before, and never going back to normal floss.

published

No longer need to use finicky floss material. This thing is so easy. Pressure it provides is enough to remove most stuff stuck between teeth. Charges easily. Its a little tricky getting used to how to hold it at the right angle so you dont spill water down your front, but after a few goes, its simple.

Great for those who are dental floss challenged

published

I've never got the hang of flossing with dental floss or dental picks. Flossing with water is genius. I believe that the investment in this machine will save me on dental cleaning costs in the future as a preventative measure.

Now I have one that works well!

published

I was so upset with this product when I first purchased one. I whinged but I put up with a product that was ok at first but terrible after the first 3-4 months I tolerated it until it died. What was I thinking?
I finally woke up to myself and used my warranty and was sent another Waterpik Cordless Plus Water Flosser WP450.
WOW! What a difference! I have had no problems with and am super happy with my flosser. I need it as I have some implants and this flosser plus brushing keeps them spotless.
PS. If you have problems with charging clean the connectors with a small cotton bud and alcohol . Dry Steel wool works really too and is easier to get into the small spaces
Thumbs up

Bought it don’t use it often

published

If you want to knock the plague off your teeth this is the product for you. Despite being squirted in the face more times than I can count it does do an okay job at cleaning. However I don’t use it often and is pretty pricey. Wouldn’t recommend

Great

published

Great for my kids braces, eliminates the half an hour they would usually spend trying to floss in between all of the hardware. Lol! Needs to be refilled quite often, but what else could you expect. Do not regret buying this product and works well for normal flossing also.

Great product initially but it does not last

Very disappointed

published

Does an OK job. But having previously used another brand (left the house when a daughter moved out) this product is so disappointing. Very messy, just floods your mouth with water. Better off using the garden hose.

Disappointed

published

We have been loving our Waterpik [second one as the first died after a few months]. However, now this one has almost died. It hasn't even been 12 months and it is grunting and groaning. We have cleaned with white vinegar as per instructions but that hasn't stopped it from failing. Disappointed.

Can't test this product prior to buying it

published

Due to hygiene and health issues we can't try this product other then buying it and hope for good.

Spent good money on this - used only a handful of times, with the need to floss after.

Doesn't do the job as described. Built quality feels like this product should cost $25 not $100.
Perhaps some people find it useful, mine is collecting dust.


Good when it works

published

The Waterpik certainly helps my arthritic hands to keep my gums healthier. The downside of the design is having to press a tiny button to release the attachments. My greatest disappointment is that the battery is so erratic. I haven't worked out whether it's better to use the charger daily or not when at first once a week was fine. Actually this week like the Grandfather Clock - it stopped short never to go again.
I'm thinking of looking for an alternative product that's as effective but not so expensive in case it's also problematic.


Does its job, but very poor quality for the price

published

I paid $99 AUD for the product, I expected something that had a better design, feel and quality. Product just seems unnecessarily big and more importantly, cheap. Cheap plastic, button functions and charging station. I have an electric toothbrush that I only paid $40 for which has been designed and built much better.

Additionally, even at the highest pressure setting, I feel like it doesn't have enough power to really give me a clean mouth feeling.
It's a great idea, but execution still needs a LOT of work.

Battery issue

published

This is or was a great product. Unfortunately after 6 months though the product barely works due to what appears to be a battery issue. After reading other reviews, this seems to be a common problem. Simply, it no longer works because it doesn't seem to charge, you can charge for 12 hours and may squeeze about 10 seconds usage before it dies again! I may look at replacing the battery pack, but in all honesty, if this is a common problems, the company should fix it before selling it. Cheers

Why is the water pressure in my Waterpik so low - even though it is fully charged? It barely works.

There is a pressure setting on the front. Try that.

Tried it, doesn't make any difference.

Hi! My Waterpik WP-450 has a two-pin charging connector, one circular, the other, larger one, a D-shape. Can anyone please tell me which is the positive pin? Thanks in advance.

Hi. I am just another Waterpik user like you9 but I’m wondering if perhaps your connectors are dirty ; the two gold prongs at the base of the flosser that you plug your charger cable into. You can clean these with alcohol, like Isocol, on a cotton bud. I’ve also used small pieces of dry steel wool to polish them up. Make sure you blow out any loose debris left behind.
If its not the connectors it is probably the battery and you will need to contact Waterpik in your area to see if it’s replaceable.
Good luck!
