Any bottle brush will do if it fits into the unit to do the job. If the bristles are polyester or another kind of plastic it will not absorb bacteria. Wash and rinse the brush well after use and don't use it for anything else.
I had the same problem for the longest time until today. I took a super soaker squirt gun (hand style with single pump on top) and shot it up the hole wear the water intake is for the pump (on the bottom of the white plastic part that has the trigger and water pump inside) while holding the trigger down to have the pump running, too. Did it a couple times for good measure. ;) When I tried it with the tank attached, it worked again. After that, I ran some rubbing alcohol through it to clean it up a bit but you could probably use hydrogen peroxide or distilled white vinegar as well. I'm guessing that the salt and baking soda mix eventually builds up and plugs it. Definitely plan on keeping the squirt gun handy in case it happens again. Hope this helps.
I just ran into the same problem after disassembling my waterpik. I have a problem with the device not pumping water once powered on. It siphons just fine with power off, so I'm puzzled as to why it quit working 1 use after not using it for a long time. I finally solved the switch problem at least: Before you attempt reassembling the top to the base, gently pry the switch cap prongs inwards until the cap pops loose. THEN assemble the top and base. Once done, align the switch cap with the internal plastic slide that activates the switch, and pop the cap into place. That should solve the issue.
Here is a tip that will explain how to adjust that pressure switch, there also are other tips attached to the bottom of this one that will answer other questions also...Water wells and water pumps are great but do take some maintenance...
