RE: Nasty Smell?!
And I thought dog farts piped straight to your nose, undiluted, under pressure was bad.

Yeah. That's kind of disturbing. Run it for a long time? YHGOTBKM. New machine if so. At the very least it needs to be opened up just to see what's there. I guess you'd have to cork the end of the hose when not using it to eliminate the opssibility.

Lolol no joke! I'm going to take it into the suppliers store tomorrow. Honestly, I haven't used it since this happened, and I really need it. It just gives me the creeps.

Hello, neighbor!

I can't imagine doing without my cpap. I hope you get your problem resolved soon. Spraying regularly may not be a bad idea. I know from personal experience that when moving from a situation like yours, the little pests tend to move with you. In our case we ended up contracting with an exterminator for a year to get rid of them.

I use FlashPAP to load data from a FlashAir III wifi sd card in my machine to my computer and display it with SleepyHead .

Hi! I've actually seen a few from the move, so pest control is scheduled to come out next week and treat.
