Q. What maintenance is needed for the Aquapick AQ-350?
A - After completion of flossing run your Aquapick for a few seconds with no water in it. This helps flush any residual water from the piston and helps maintain your new Aquapick. We recommend using Aquapick Cleaning Tablets once every 2 months for normal New Zealand town supply water. For areas renowned to suffer from hard water or water high in calculus cleaning is recommended more regularly as is water supplied from bores or caught water systems (roof water).
Keep you Aquapick clean by using a clean white cloth every time after use, this will help ensure your unit lasts longer.

A . Bleeding is often caused by gums being inflamed, getting started may in some cases cause bleeding. If bleeding is caused floss twice a day until bleeding is not caused.
