[Equipment]  LONG Climateline hose
#1
Question 
I would like to try a Climateline hose but they only come in 6-foot lengths. To reach my head, I need a hose that is at least 8-feet long. Can the Climateline hoses be hooked together (in series)?

Nope. I just checked on the hose and only one end has the power connection and the other end is just a tube so there is no way to transfer the power. However, I see no reason why you couldn't use a short pigtail at the end to make up the two feet you need extra..... Just a thought.
If everyone thinks alike, then someone isn't thinking.

I use the wisp nasal mask and it comes with a hose that attaches to the climate line tube and extends the length. Not sure if your nasal pillows has that or not.

If you do use a non-heated hose for an extender hose you might want to have a "hose cozy" or something to help keep the air in the hose warm.

A hose cozy can be bought, made from polar fleece or a sweater sleeve or a leg warmer or sock with the toe cut out. Just make sure it is light weight so it does not drag the hose down.

I've used a hose cozy on my standard hoses for several years! I'm just toying with the idea of getting a Climateline hose to see if I'd sleep any better with warmer air being blown into my nose. Given the logistics of my machine location relevant to my head, I need a hose that is at least 8' long - preferably 10' long.
