1st cleaning - tough time drying climate line hose -
I have a longish climate line hose which I just cleaned for the first time 3 hours ago. After rinsing it well and twirling it around to try to get as much water as I could, I left it hanging for 2 hours. It's much to long to swing the entire hose.

When I checked it, there were large drops of water still inside. I decided to try to speed this up a little as I didn't want to try drying it before bed.

I hooked it back up, turned the humidifier to OFF (the humidifier is empty but slightly wet), and ran mask fit. Mask fit auto shuts off after a few mins and I don't see much in the want of progress on the drops.

I turned the temp up to 85 but that doesn't seem to make a difference.

Any suggestions or am I just not being patient enough?

My hose never completely dries before I turn in for the night. I hook it up and run the machine to let the big drops work out. After that I think the rest just evaporates as I use it. I think you'll be fine.

Next time, clean it early in the morning, then it has more time to dry. Mine isn't completely dry either, so I just hook it up and let the blower run for awhile.
You can also purchase a spare hose and alternate them.

When you let the machine run to dry out a hose, it is not counted toward compliant hours since there's no one there breathing.

Most of us just hook it up and let it run for a while after it has hung up all day. Any drops left over rarely are an issue.

Thanks. Looks like I hit the panic (for lack of a better word) button too soon. I just kept running mask fit over and over again. It looks like it finally dried out.

I wont tell you how long it took to clean everything. I was trying to be very careful and fastidious. I think about it now and I'm like..."Really?" LOL

Ahh the joys of being a newbie.

RE: 1st cleaning - tough time drying climate line hose -
The obvious question here is why do you need the hose to be dry? You're going to be pushing humidified air through the hose and a little extra moisture is not going to cause any real issues unless your head is below the level of your machine. If that is the real issue, then let the machine blow out the excess moisture before going to bed or lower the machine to be below your head's level.

Hi rogue01,

I only wash the tub and humidifier lid gasket and hose when I get a round tuit, but every morning after dumping the water I dry the outside of the tub and return the tub to the machine and run the Warm Up cycle, which drys out the chamber and lid gasket and hose well, so no mold grows anywhere.

The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.

If it matters a lot to you to have dry equipment and if money is no object, you can get one of those Hurricane cpap equipment dryers. It's somewhere in the $150 neighborhood. For that kind of money, I think I would 3D print an adapter for my wife's hair dryer and just run it on cold for a few minutes. hmm... maybe I could crowdfund it... Thinking-about

Yuk, The thought of burnt hair smell in my CPAP stuff doesn't sound good.

Letting the machine run (With Autostart off) to dry the equipment does add to your blower hours though. I just use the machine and it drys itself while wearing it.
