When I was about 12yrs (1939) I had gone to a drs office about once a month to have my nasal passages washed. I would lay on my back with head hanging over end and he would fill my nose with a solution . he then would place a glass tube with a ball shape on the end and a hose running to a water faucet on my nostril , I would repeatedly say "CAKE CAKE ...." while he suctiond out the water.This was repeated several times. and the relief was great. My question is is the 'neti pot' technique or the vacuum flush better . If the vacuum technique is better (my wife would do the implementation) where would one find the equipment ?

I'm not sure were to find that equipment. You may want to talk to your doctor and verify that it is still a good idea for you.

You may want to check ebay. They have almost everything.
