Waterpik Aquarius Professional Water Flosser Features
There are many features to like about the Waterpik Aquarius Professional Water Flosser, which include:
With the Aquarius you get to control the pressure setting up to a maximum of 10. This allows you to choose whether you want the jet stream of water to be fairly thin, which is advisable for children, or more powerful for adults.
For those with sensitive gums, it is a good idea to start with a lower setting and see how your gums feel the following day before upping it a notch or two. Of course, the higher the pressure, the easier it will be to get the debris out.
Easy On/Off Switch
It also has an easy to use on-off water control button on the handle where you start or stop the water flow. The water reservoir capacity should last over 90 seconds. Plus it has a one-minute timer with a 30-second pacer to ensure you floss properly.
Of course the key feature is the two modes. One is the Hydro-Pulse Massage Mode that does exactly what it says. It massages the gums through customized water pulsation and also helps to improve circulation. The other is the Floss Mode, which helps to increase plague removal from the teeth. Both of these modes come with a cool LED mode indicator light.
Device Color Options
Just to make the Waterpik Aquarius Professional Water Flosser seem even cooler, you have four different color options to choose from. These are:
- Pearly White,
- Vibrant Teal,
- Brilliant Black, and
- Radiant Pink.
All come with a suave satin chrome finish so it doesn’t have that cheap look.
Waterpik Aquarius Water Flosser Cons
As it is a counter top water flosser, some have found it quite big. So be aware you may need to ensure you adequate space on your bathroom vanity before you buy.
It can be a little difficult to move around while you are flossing as the cord isn’t the longest so you constantly need to make sure you don’t venture too far away from the base and the electrical cord.
Although it claims to be quieter than previous Waterpik models, it’s still pretty loud so don’t for a minute think you will be able to quietly go about your business while someone sleeps in the room next to you.
Some users have mentioned that the on-off button can be awkward to manage due to it being on the handle (however we think that is the most logical place for it.
The tip storage compartment is only big enough for two tips. So if you are sharing it with more than one person you’ll just have to have a container for the othe tips.
What’s Included In The Package
In the package you will get the water flosser main base, handle device, water reservoir and water hose. You also get seven tips, which are:
- 3 x Classic Jet Tips,
- 1 x Orthodontic Tip,
