I would give THIS product 2 stars because there is some serious price gouging going on here. Save yourself about $65 and get a water pik, which is what this thing is. Seriously. Nothing more, and in fact I noticed that the water pik company has started adding sinus adaptors with some of their kits.
BUT, considering what this unit has saved me from, I am compelled to give a high score here.
I know for a fact that using this thing multiple times a day EVEN IN THE START/MIDDLE of a sinus infection, can get rid of it. You have to be dilligent though and do it EVERY day, several times a day (at least twice probably), for several days though. And that is a pain, but it's either that or the inevitable antibiotics which I try to avoid. And with this bad boy, I can avoid that more than half the time I feel an infection coming on.
Also, here's a tip to save further money. Don't pay for the little pre mixed packets...mix your own and save a lot of money. The ingredients are literally salt and baking soda. The "higher end" packets come with Xylitol (which I swear by for sinuses, and highly recommend you use it when you rinse), which is so easy to just buy these days. You can buy a big packet of Xlitol sweetener for about $6 I think and add it to your rinse.Read more ›
That being said, it is, without a doubt, the cheapest piece of junk I have ever owned. And I've owned FOUR of these puppies. I've never had one last more than a year, and yes I follow all the instructions, using distilled water and flushing the system out after use. At $100 a pop, that gets expensive.
They inevitably start leaking all over the place, and once that happens, the motor burn-out will occur shortly after. I never would have bought more than 2 if I wasn't so desparate for it.
There appear to be other nasal irrigators on the market now. I have not tried them, but after throwing $400 at the Grossan over the last 4 years, I am going to try something different.
So to sum it, it works well, but is almost guaranteed to fail on you with any kind of regular use. Be prepared.
The pump mechanism (piston, cylinder, and eccentric drive) is entirely plastic, is not a sealed design, and fails from lack of lubrication. First, the piston and cylinder wear to the point that water leaks out during operation and splatters all over the inside of the unit. The motor rusts and mildew grows all over the inside. The eccentric that drives the piston (also plastic) loses its grease and develops play due to sliding wear. Ultimately, the friction overcomes the torque of the motor and it won't start.
The telltale sign of failure is that water starts to leak out the bottom. Once this happens, it means you have mold inside and the unit will seize. I generally get several more months of use out of it after this happens, but all three of my Hydro-Pulses have suffered the same fate.
I have been able to extend the life somewhat by opening the bottom (T15 tamper-resistant Torx driver required), meticulously cleaning the mold and grease, and re-lubing the eccentric mechanism. However, I question the wisdom of using this in my sinuses at this stage because the whole inside of the unit is filled with splattered grease and mold and the pump's unsealed design.
UPDATE 12/2015: In 2013 I bought a Waterpik WP100 to replace this. I took the Pik-Pocket tip, which I don't use, and drilled out the inlet restriction to about 1/8". I then sanded off the taper of the discharge tip so that restriction through the attachment was minimized. I was able to manhandle my Grossan sinus tip onto it. This has been a reliable solution for over two years without leaks or loss of performance or adjustability. I highly recommend this route if you are tired of replacing Grossan units. The WP900 uses the same attachment system.
