Make sure you're not filling the tank too high.

Fill to the green line in the pic, not the red line. (Yellow is good too since most do not use a full tank in one night)

Not over-filling, something else going. Might be a good idea for a piece of mind, to get another S9 Autoset

I have been using the AirSense 10 with climateline hose for about 6 months and have not experienced any problems with humidification

Fantastic RG! I would be curious to know what your setting are for the hose and humidity and what the humidity environment is in your sleep environment. Thanks.

Tube Temperature 29 degrees centigrade, Humidity setting 6. I can not measure the humidity in my sleeping area but I estimate that the humidity is average or slightly below average.

I noticed that your pressure settings are relatively low. Is there a story behind this?

Its likely you haven't experienced any issues with humidity because your room humidity is lower than average. As for my pressure range there is no story. It's all the pressure required to treat my condition. My AHI is averaging now .38

When you look at your data on ResScan does your operating pressure reach your upper limit

I keep mine at 26 degrees Celsius and 4. Always. No problems. I go through a tank in 12 hours.

Absolutely it does. But I decided I wanted to control the machine and not have the machine control me. When the machine controlled me it would go to pressures at infrequent times that were actually making me feel worse - too much pressure led to post nasal drip and increased central apneas. So, to make sure I'm treated and I feel good I keep the machine from going too high. Having said that, I think 7 would be my highest setting I would go to. If h AHI scores were not good I would increase the pressure but that is not the case. My scores are good and I am able to obtain perfect scores on this setting. A couple of times per month as well.
