[Equipment] Cleaning Machines

Has anybody had any experience with any of the cleaning machines. I would like to know about the SoClean 2 - CPAP Cleaner and Sanitizer and the Hurricane CPAP Tubing Dryer. Do they do the job and are they worth the money.

Hi frankresmeds9,
I don't have the SoClean but I do have the Hurricane CPAP Dryer and I really like it. The heat that comes out of it isn't hot enough to hurt your CPAP parts. Of course, if you wanted to save money and if you have an older CPAP machine, you could use that to dry your hose and mask as well.

I am looking at some day getting the Hurricane but just can't justify the cost. With my machine, I can turn on the Mask Fit setting and let the machine run a bit. It does add to the overall hours the blower is used but doesn't affect your AHI number. Also doesn't help your compliance if you are still tracking that.

What do you think is in your machine that needs cleaned? The blower unit is an air mover that pulls in filtered air and pushes it through the humidifier and your hose and mask. The SoClean is an expensive device that uses an ozone generator, which is not particularly good for plastic and silicone parts. If you need that peace of mind, fine, but is there a problem that needs this solution? I would keep the mask and hose away from this as I have heard of users experiencing rapid deterioration and color change in those materials.

I have both the SoClean 2 and just got the Hurricane so I have not had a chance to use it.

There is nothing more convenient than the SoClean - just put your mask in there and it runs on a timer for 10 minutes. What I do not like about it (hence the purchase of the Hurricane) is the smell that it leaves in your equipment. If my hose and cushion deteriorate, so be it - but the smell is awful.

I heard good things about the Hurricane so I can't wait to use it. I probably will end up using a combination of the two.
