RE: 10' hose
I think I read somewhere in my Respronics literature that any hose longer then 10' would require a slight bump-up in pressure.

RE: 10' hose
i don't think there is a significant difference between 6 and 10 feet. now if the machine is 100 feet away in the garage, it might be different. the industry standard is 6 feet. i think if 10 foot hoses made a significant difference they would be required to come with pressure warnings. something tells me they are not hooking up a 6 foot hose and humidifier to test pressure out of the cpap at the factory final inspection station. i think when 14 comes out the end of the machine it is assumed that 14 is at the end of the humifier and hose as well. somebody needs to go to an on-line seller that sells 10 foot hoses and ask their chat line about it or call the dme they got it from.

If CPAP machine in garage then have to use the garden hose and with the garden hose comes out the air compressor but not sure if the Quattro can handle such extreme high pressure
On second thought I,ll stick with my climate line
The climate line slightly longer than the slim line

RE: 10' hose
I thank all who have responded to my initial query. I am now comfortable with the idea that I can use a 10' hose without making any pressure changes. I also have gotten some ideas for using that extra length, such as in travel. I have not yet traveled with CPAP, so that was not yet on my radar.

RE: 10' hose
Hotel rooms are getting really bad for their lack of outlets. When we were going back and forth from here to PA a few weeks ago, It was a nightly challenge of playing the game "Where is it this time?"

Almost always either way across the room or behind the bed. The clock got unplugged the most. We figured it was in an 'always on' outlet.

It was also frightening to see the number of multi-power strips in a single outlet.

RE: 10' hose
You could do a simple test with a ping pong ball and a plastic bottle. Disconnect your mask and stick a ball in the plastic bottle with its bottom cut off put you hose end on the neck of the bottle and see how much pressure is required to lift the ball out of the bottle, then try it again with a longer hose and see how much difference there is. A real mythbuster experimentBigwink

OK - now you have me confused again (and don't say that is a simple thing!) Have you done this experiment with a 10' hose? My wife doesn't let me use sharp utensils anymore, so cutting out the bottom of a bottle would be a real challenge.:grin:

Then use a huge funnel and a cannon ball. Add some explosives for effect.

Would I have to wait until the 4th of July? Or would it be like a show I recently saw on TV where they were blowing up anvils - really BIG anvils - to see how high (I guess) they could make them go? Maybe CPAP is not going to be as dull as I originally expected!!

I have used it to clean out a delicate part of a computer bit.

And to dry a keyboard.
