Thank You! I’m glad I’m not the ONLY one to have considered this!
As a chronic sinus sufferer I LOVE my NielMed Sinus Rinse canister.
You fill this thing with salt packets, then warm water, and squeeze out your nose.
It’s nearly a divine experience for someone who is completely clogged.
Do this, then shoot some Nasal Spray Decongestant up there and it’s AMAZING!
I even tried the standard NetiPot first, but my sinuses get so congested the water wouldn’t even go through. I needed the pressure of the sinus rinse to even get through the junk in my nose.
My idea in concert with the above xkcd.com cartoon was to make a large vat of the salt water mix like NeilMed has, then hook up an aquarium pump to have a nice, continuous stream of wonderfully cleansing warm water flowing through my pained sinuses.
Everyone tells me I’m nuts, but whoever drew the above for xkcd.com totally understands where I’m coming from!
I started searching to see if any one else had used a powered sinus rinse and I found one!
The Hydro Pulse Sinus Powered Irrigation System. I haven’t used this or even heard of it before now, but it looks pretty cool!
