Accessories for Less?
Being that I'm new on here, I'm not sure I'm posting this in the right place but here's my question/issue...
I'm currently w/out health ins. & I need to replace pretty much everything but the machine! The canister thing that holds the water might be okay to keep (does anyone know of a way to clean it out really well?) but the all the tubing & the nasal pillow should really be replaced. I don't have much to spend so I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good place to get these supplies for cheap? I worry about continuing to use several year old accessories, no matter how well I think I clean them out! Any help is greatly appreciated Smile

Hello and welcome. Take a look at this list and check out No. 2. I have never used them seeing as I am in Australia but I have heard excellent reports. Am sure others will be able to help you out too. Good luck

Supplier #1 on the list is also very reasonable for _PAP supplies. I used them for years, until i ran into problems with Medicare. Sad

Hoses are cheap on eBay ($10 or less). You will want to change your filter, too. Those are also cheap on eBay.

RE: Accessories for Less?
Tell us exactly what type of mask and the size of the pillows...just maybe -someone has some unused ones laying around that they don't need anymore and you may be able to negotiate. Maybe even filters also.
