Takeaway: Small tank, runs out quick, moderate pressure and cleaning, a bit noisy and messy.

You'll receive the main body of the water pik, two blue and two pink flosser tips, a power adapter, a microUSB charging cable, and an instruction manual. The tips are color coded so you can have two users. They simply snap into the top of the pump unit by pushing it into the hole on top. When attached, the tip can rotate 360 degrees. The unit's water tank reservoir is attached to the back of the unit and removable. It's clear so you can see the water level and has a small door near the bottom for filling. On the front, there's a small rubber plug that covers the charging port. This unit uses a custom USB cable so be sure not to lose it. After charging, remember to reinstall the rubber plug to protect the unit from water damage. There are three modes on this machine: normal, soft and pulse. I didn't find too much of a performance different between the modes though 'normal' has a bit higher pressure than 'soft' and 'pulse' appears to use the pressure of 'soft' in intervals. Filling the unit with water is pretty simple, but you have to tilt the unit to get the tank filled all the way. When you turn it on, it starts in the last mode it was in. It's not very loud when using it, but does make noise and it is very messy. The first time I used it water got everywhere. You'll want to keep your mouth nearly closed, but open enough for water to run out. I found it makes less of a mess when you're hunched over the sink or when used in the shower as the unit is fully waterproof (with the charge port cover installed). The tank only holds enough water for about 40-50 seconds of use regardless of what mode it's in, so it runs out pretty quickly. It works okay, but not as thoroughly as thread floss and you may need to refill the tank a few times in one session to clean all your teeth. While I like that it's wireless and portable, I would have preferred a bit higher pressure and a bigger tank. Unplugging the unit after charging will help preserve its battery life. When you're done with the unit you have to shake all the water out of the tank, run the nozzle dry, and store it with the door open so it won't get moldy/mildew inside.
