HydroFloss Troubleshooting Tips

One of the most common  (but still not very often) problems people call me about is the flow.  They notice that their HydroFloss "seems" to lose pressure over time.

Often times, this is actually not the case.   There are a few things you should try before giving up.

One is, believe it or not, to simply change the tip.   I have witnessed for myself that if you do not change the tip regularly enough,  it appears that the flow has slowed down.

But, this is not actually the case.  The tips do wear down.  They give a little and they are intentionally made a little soft for safety reasons.  

So, try changing your tip.  You can get regular jet tips (packages of four) -- here. 

I suggested this to one customer who was ready to buy a new pump for his Hydro Floss.  He called me back a few minutes later to tell me that changing the tip worked.

I have noticed the same thing.  If I wait to long before changing my regular tips, it appears that the Hydro Floss has slowed down.   But, as soon as I replace the tip, it is as strong as ever.

The wear on the tip changes the dynamics of the water flow somehow.  This is the best explanation I have.   But I do know that changing the tip has worked for me!

Tip:  your Hydro Floss should drain an entire tank in approximately 2 minutes and 10 seconds on the highest pressure setting.

The Hydro Floss is such a powerful tool for dental health that I do not minding changing tips at all.
