Dry hose
#1
Dry hose
Hello,
I have just done my first monthly clean of my machine. Everything is fine except there are still beads of water all the way along the hose from the machine to the face mask. I washed it out with soapy water and rinsed well with cold water and hug it over the shower all yesterday and overnight but it still has beads of water in it.
I don't know if it would dry out as I use it or whether that would not be good for me. Can anyone help?
Best regards
Kathy

RE: Dry hose
It is pretty common to find droplets of water in the hose the day you wash it. I generally use it with droplets still in the hose. One thing that you can do it use the mask fit option to blow and dry out the hose (if I use this method I try to get some downward slope to help the process), it just adds time to the machine, however it does not effect your data.

RE: Dry hose
I hold it in the middle, amd swing it around and around a few times. It flings the droplets around my room, but I'm ok with that.

That doesn't get rid of all of it, but quite a lot.

I figure some droplets of water in there is ok, since humid air is going through it when I use it (with my humidifier).

RE: Dry hose
Thank you for that idea too! I also use a humidifier so your right there would be moisture in there anyway.

Won't hurt a thing to just use it. You're using a humidificator anyway that's doing the same exact thing.

RE: Dry hose
In the summer I hang my hose outside under our patio, not in the sunshine, after shaking it out well. In the colder weather it goes over a towel rack in the bathroom which has the furnace vent right underneath. I've never had water in my hose after cleaning.
