10' hose
Does anybody have experience with a 10' hose? I currently have a Slimline hose (approx 6'), am having a ClimateLine hose delivered today (approx 6'), but I am also very interested in the longer hose. (Darn near pulled the machine off the table last night!) ResMed doesn't make one of that length in any diameter, and I know there would be some pressure adjustments necessary to correctly compensate for the increased length (at least of comparable diameter hoses). I would like to hear experiences from any users, including the issue of the larger tube size versus the Slimline.

RE: 10' hose
I started with the SlimLine and now have the ClimateLine. Switching between the two, the S9 made its own adjustments. If you use any other, you have to tell the machine you changed.

As for longer, what the heck are you doing in your sleep? That's SIX FOOT of hose!

Just kidding. Seems long enough until it gets tangled around the pillow, under the handle and....

Hey, Paula02, I'm longer than the hose! :grin: And I REALLY don't want to pull the machine, with a full humidifier, off the table. Guess I have to look into other ways to secure it.

I am more investigating than I am seeking to acquire, at this point. My S9 settings only give an option of Slimline or Standard. So, either Standard refers to standard length and diameter, as I suspect, since Resmed doesn't make a longer hose, or it only refers to diameter and disregards length. The latter seems unlikely.

Anyway....

It wont matter how long your hose is, you will still pull it off! (Maybe an edit needed there Too-funny ) Ive had it wrapped round my neck, my arm and even my leg. Also Ive woken up with it in my bed, on the floor etc I doubt it would stop if it was longer, it has a mind of its own Big Grin

RE: 10' hose
Nearly all machines accommodate 6,8 & 10 feet hoses with no necessary adjustments I switch between a 8 (home) and a 10 footer (for travel) quite often. I travel often, so the 10 ft hose gives me a little xtra length in case of a farther distance to a elec receptacle.

RE: 10' hose
I've been using a 10' hose since 1998; I needed it because my machine sits under my bed and the hose runs up through the middle of the headboard and down my left side before doubling back to my nose. Supplier #1 on our list of online DMEs has a standard diameter hoses in all the standard lengths of hose for very reasonable prices.

That's good to know! I wasn't aware of longer hoses being so easy to find. A longer one for travel sounds like a good idea!

RE: 10' hose
One further thought regarding longer hose. It would be quite easy to connect two sections of 6' hose together and generate a 12' hose.

I would think so.. basic physics dictates that the pressure will be decreased at the end, the longer the tube. As to how much, someone more schooled in physics than I could help with the correct formula. Pretty sure some machines have settings for longer hoses also.
