i would say about 22oz?

i dont know it takes alot of water and the water lasts about 4-7 minutes on the lowest pressure (0-3)

Medium pressure (4-7 and a half) lasts about 2-4 minutes

THIS IS ON FULL TANK

Highest pressure (8-10)
Lasts about 2-3 minutes.

I fill my water Waterpik with water and then I put a dash of 3% hydrogen peroxide in the Waterpik. The hydrogen peroxide clears bacteria from my mouth and prevents junk from growing inside the Waterpik.

If your Waterpik is already "yucky", you can put a little bleach and water inside and leave it for a few hours. Then just rinse it out. If you taste residual bleach. It won't cause you any harm in very dilute form.

The most common tip is made of plastic and can be cleaned or wiped if more than one person will use this. Users can also switch tips. The WP-100 includes 6 different tips.

My 8 year old LOVES this thing. If we had it years ago she might not have any caries!
