      need to rinse out your water pik every 6-7 days or more often with pure water as the Listerine ingredients may erode some of the plastic elements in the waterpik.  I also use a teaspoon or so of Hydrogen peroxide mixed in with a plentitude of water - it chemically helps to neutralize some bacteria.  It is essential to flush to water pik out with pure water afterwards - and also with the listerine/H2O mix to maintain the integrity of the
    Water Pik plastic and other components.   Good Oral Health to All   (P.S.  Use Either listerine Or Hyd. Peroxide with the water Mixture - Not Both)

      My spouse swears by his water pik. English healthcare is generally pretty good, but for dental work...well, the English have a reputation for bad teeth for a reason....Anyway, one day the water pik went off randomly spraying the wall with Listerine. I only knew it was happening because the smell travelled downstairs. That was a MESS.
