[CPAP] ResMed A10 small particles in distilled water in humidifier tank
RE: ResMed A10 small particles in distilled water in humidifier tank
I'm using the same machine, GuitarRebel, and haven't noticed anything like flakes.  About the flakes- do they look like metal, plastic or anything else? I'd switch to a new tub and see what happens.  I clean everything with Dawn dish detergent, and scrub the tub interior. with a used filter screen because it's small and slightly abrasive. I've noticed a slight film appears on the tub interior.

One thing to be aware of is that distilled water is corrosive.  A quick Google search returned this:

Despite its benefits, distilled water is particularly corrosive. With no minerals to give the water pH balance, distilled water acts like a magnet, absorbing chemicals (phthalates and bisphenols) from plastics, nickel from stainless steel, aluminum from aluminum containers, and carbon dioxide from the air.   

So the flakes could be coming from many places, local air, cleaning sprays, dust. 

Try using tap water once or twice.

This is why im not sure if I should use a CPAP or just get jaw surgery. Almost seems easier to go through the recovery of bimax than maintaining a CPAP with an humidifier free of any nasty particles.
