The Water Pik had been recommended to me by my dental hygenist. It does what it claims, but is a bulky heavy cumbersome device. The motor always sounds as if it is barely coping, and it needs very frequent recharging. Apart from its bulk and weight, my main gripe is its unreliability. The first one I had lasted just three weeks before it abruptly stopped in mid-flow and no amount of recharging could revive it. Argos replaced it without quibble, but the second one lasted just 5 weeks before it stopped as abruptly as the first one. This time I obtained a refund from Argos as I no longer could trust this model to be reliable. I commented to my hygenist the next time I saw her that this device was a total lemon and she cheerfully said \"oh yes, they have a reputation for unreliability\". It would have been nice if she had mentioned that when recommending it to me!
