What's the construction of the hose?

Soft or stif (hard) rubber/plastic?

answer 1
It's a stiffer plastic that is coiled. It is able to extend due to this coiling. It is not a rubber like, say a rubber gasket or those rubber pencil cushions (sorry, can't think of better examples just now).

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.

answer 3
It's not going to give you whiter teeth. As to bad breath or mouth odor, that depends on the source of your bad breath. If your bad breath is due to gastro-esophageal problems like acid reflux disease, then absolutely not. If the bad breath is due to general growth on/between teeth or on tongue, then it will probably HELP (NOT eliminate), so long as you floss & brush as well. FYI, this machine does NOT replace flossing!

Perhaps if you use a mouthwash instead of water. I just use water since the product's job of flossing your teeth is it's primary objective and it does it well. With water it *does not* kill bad breath and whiten teeth.

yes, it does help with bad breath , for 2 reasons,, one it gets the food out from between the teeth so it doesn't decay, and it gives you healthy gums, second,, you can put mouth wash in the tank and that really does the job, because it gets the wash in between all your teeth to kill the germs that cause bad breath.

This is a water version of a flosser. You'll still want to brush your teeth (following dentist instructions) with the use of this product. My dentist recommended using an electric toothbrush to keep them extra clean once you have crowns or implants. I have a few crowns and I love using this in addition to brushing and regular flossing (once or twice a week) because it gets between the gum line and my crowns better than my toothbrush or regular floss ever could.

My WP-100 says 14 watts on the bottom. I don’t know if Waterpik makes a model for 220 volts.

Converters are easy to obtain. The converter needs to be able to handle a 14 watt load. That is pretty small. The electric plug on my WP-100 is for North America. 110-120 Volts.
