 Before Buying an Electric Flosser consider these factors:

A mains powered model is normally designed for use in one place only near a mains power wall outlet -on a bench and is not portable. They have a more powerful motor and can be used repeatedly without worrying about going flat. The water storage tank size is larger (Higher Water Capacity). The water jet pressure is higher and have more preset pressure settings.

Cordless Rechargeable:
Cordless rechargeable electric flossers offer the convenience of being able to be taken with you anywhere in the house or even on vacation as they do not have a fixed power cord. The cord is used to recharge the battery on rechargeable models. The water tank storage sizes are smaller than mains powered models and require refilling after every use.

Rechargeable battery models are generally more expensive than models that take disposable batteries as they can be recharged over and over. Their initial purchase price is higher than non rechargeable models but this cost is initially rather than over time as batteries do not need to purchased again when the unit goes flat. Plug it into the charger again for the next use.

Tank Size:
The water storage tank size is the largest on the mains powered models. Cordless models have smaller storage tanks so the unit can be held while using the unit. The storage size is normally large enough for a single use then requires refilling. If more cleaning time is required the tank will need to be refilled again. If flossing is performed at home only then a bench top mains powered model is recommended.

With modern manufacturing all products are supplied with an owners warranty. The extent of this warranty will vary with each manufacturer. the standard warranty period is normally 12 months. Check with the manufacturer of the water flosser for their specific limitations of warranty and warranty period. Some manufactures are confident of their workmanship and offer 3 years warranty.


The main criteria that must be established is what power source is required for your electric flosser.

There are three main types that are available. They are listed below.
