Does The Hydro Floss Ionize Water?

Question:  Does The Hydro Floss Ionize Water? Answer:  No, the Hydro Floss does not ionize water molecules.  However, it does place a charge on minerals in the water.  This is why you always want to use tap or spring water in your HydroFloss.  Never use distilled water because it is devoid of minerals.   If you are using RO (reverse osmosis) water, check with your RO device maker, but my understanding is that it removes most if not all of the minerals. This makes RO water a poor choice for your HydroFloss You can get your new HydroFloss here:  https://toothygrins.net/products/hydro-floss-oral-irrigator-new-generation
