About the Waterpik Ultra Jet-is it personal or could be used by more than one person?

answer 1
More than one.I would order more tips from them.

 - sparks nv
answer 2
It comes with 6 different interchangeable tips/attachments, each one being different. I will assume that if each person does not use the other person's tip, AND the person is someone you regularly make out with anyways (aka, sharing mouth germs), then that's doable.

However, I would not recommend sharing with other members of the family. This is because when I've used it, water accumulating in my mouth will occasionally drip out of my mouth and onto the handle. I don't know what kinds of germs I am leaving behind on the handle into which the tips insert. But if the people are super strict about using clorox wipes on the handle after each use, I suppose it's possible to share the machine (not tips) with any family member??

Since it is coiled, I assume you're asking how far the coil will stretch before moving the actual machine. I was able to stretch it out about 28 inches comfortably.

In addition to this, if distance to outlet source is an issue, the actually cord extends up to around 50 inches.

Does not appear to be so. The permanent cord is that of U.S. outlets (sorry, not sure of electrical terminology) and the only reference to voltage is on the bottom of the machine (not in manual) which shows: 120 V, 60 Hz, 34 W. If you need further detail, the company's #'s are:
