Cleaning brush problem

Cleaning brush problem
I bought a cleaning brush for about $10 from a company from China off of Walmart.com.  The brush head was only about an inch long instead of at least 6 inches from the picture online.  Anyone else had this problem?  I was thinking about buying another one off of Ebay, but it may happen again.  Anyone know of a good place to buy a cleaning brush that is really inexpensive?

RE: Cleaning brush problem
Yes, I too had the same issue a while back. I purchased one off of Ebay. Not only was the brush head short of what was advertised, the overall length was short as well. 

It was supposed to be long enough to clean the air hose. It was about a foot short.  Angry

Lesson learned......buyer beware.  Oh-jeez

Myself thinks a hose cleaning brush is overkill. The hose transmits moist air that is somewhat filtered via the inlet filter. I have soaked the heated hose in hot water and Dawn dish soap and rinsed in clear warm water. That seems good enough for me.

Yes, I too agree with you. I bought the cleaning brush for the hose early into my CPAP therapy. I still use it when I feel the need. I bought it when I was still using distilled water.  Wink

My provider says soaking in dish-liquid-soap and warm water is good enough. Brush is optional.
