I got the same problem.

The black plastic is cracked inside ; no sulution except replacement.


I don't suppose silicone gasket cement would help... Or would it?

Waterpik is rather a good product, but fails with time (5 years max).

The Real Bev a écrit :
The symptom: the jet doesn't work and water leaks out the bottom.

The 5-minute fix: turn the unit over, release the hose going to the
jet, remove the two screws holding the hose to the housing, pull the
hose connection out and replace the o-ring. If you don't have a new
o-ring, move the old one around and put it back together. Temporary, of
course...
