[Equipment] Filter Change!
#1
I didn't feel like digging out my old thread about filter changing time so I just made a new one.

So, like, change your filter because if you are like me, it is shoo nasty.

Paula -- how long has that been in use?
You win the prize -- dirtiest PAP filter.

First prize, 1 week in Oregon; second prize: two weeks.

And, BTW -- today is filter change day for me too.

Yeeoowie! I think that Zonk must be right. My filter has been in since the middle of August and does not look anything like yours.

I live in an old house. Wood floors, high ceilings. In the summer we keep our windows open and we have fans running in every room. We have dogs (3) and cats (2). In the winter we run a pellet wood stove. No soot like a regular wood stove but we have fans running to circulate the heat. I could vacuum every day and never defeat the dust, pollen, fuzz, etc.

That image was from last year I think? Can't remember. I tossed my current one and couldn't find it to take a pic of it. I change my filters once a month but that one had been in for about 6 weeks if I remember right.

Hey, hold up there! I have my web feet and I just might step in the multitudinous puddles around here and splash you! Grin!!

Yes, we live in the Liquid Sunshine state, Oregon. My hubby would agree with you and both of us can hardly wait to be full-time RVers and be snow birds in a drier climate during the winter. Not TOO dry, but drier.
Evpraxia in the Pacific Northwest USA
Diagnosed: 44 AHI when supine, O2 down to 82%
Treated since 20 Sept 2014:: 0.7 AHI, Settings 7-15, EPR on Full Time at Level 3
Better living through CPAP/APAP machines!

Then you're in the same state as Retired_Guy. I have friends of 50 years in Portland. So, I get to take a shot at Oregon once in a while.
A state with no sales tax -- outstanding.

I'm afraid to even look at my filter now that I see this....
If everyone thinks alike, then someone isn't thinking.
Everyone knows something, together we could know everything.
