Waterpik Ultra FAILS AGAIN

I recently blogged about a grossly disappointing dental jet, the Interplak Dental Water Jet. It is a delight to post a highly positive review on the Waterpik Ultra. It is by far the best dental jet I have owned. It has a quality feel to it. You can turn it off and on without the thing sliding all over the counter. It has multiple pressure settings and a workable pause control. The piks easily insert and remove. That sounds picayune but the Interplak Dental Water Jet was a major effort to remove or insert the pik. If you are sharing a unit you will want to insert and remove the piks easily. My only criticism of the unit is that I wish they would have included 4 regular water piks instead of two. My compulsive personality would like to have a backup pik for myself and my spouse. This is a five star unit and worth every penny. I got mine at Amazon.  I have linked to it because I think it is a great product and I realize that sometimes my posts seem hypercritical.   This is one that I feel the manufacturer did a great job.

Update 11/4/12: This died yesterday. Why? The water feed hose cracked.  I purchased this March 10,2110.  I thus got approximately two years and seven months of service.  That isn't too bad except that this is the third Waterpik product that failed for the same reason... the hose!  Some how that makes me feel hosed! I can't be the only customer who has complained about the inability to replace the hose on a unit that works fine with the exception of the hole in the hose bathing everything is sight.   A $50.00 item should have a hose that lasts as long as the motor.  If their engineers can't figure out how to attach a higher quality hose then the should make it a consumable.   A consumable with easy installation would suffice.   Either solution would provide increased customer satisfaction rather than promoting a disgruntled blog post.
