Troubleshooting common problems


If water does not flow out of the outgoing nostril (after giving it about 10 seconds to do so), before concluding there is a nasal blockage, check the following:

  • Relax in the nose and facial area.

  • Check that the end of the nose cone is not pushed against the inside of the nose thereby blocking water coming out of the pot. Align the spout in a straight line with the nostril passage, and don�t push it in too hard.

  • Check that the pot is tilted enough for the water to flow down towards the nose.

  • Check that you are not sniffing the water backwards towards the throat.

  • Check that the water is not leaking out of the ingoing nostril.

  • Check that the water is not too cold, since cold-water contracts the nasal passages.
