I had never checked out the innards of my machine, but the tub output goes directly into a very short tube that makes a right angle to mate with the hose. Other machines may be different, but that reinforces the comments that using tap water doesn't harm the machine (at least not Resmed A10 machines). Just keep an eye out for deposits in the tub and rinse with vinegar. I think I'll stick with distilled at home because I need it for the waterpik anyway, and there's no worry about scale. But I won't be carrying a jug of it with me on vacation.(08-13-2016, 10:52 PM)Jim Bronson Wrote: On a cautionary note, if you use tap water, and it clogs the machine internally, the manufacturer could deny a warranty claim.
If you begin to see mineral deposits in the tub, there are lots of products that will remove it. There's seldom any need to replace it.
Agree with most of your comment, but the only component that could be affected by mineral deposits is the humidifier tub.
