[Equipment] ResMed Quiet Air Diffuser Vent F30

RE: ResMed Quiet Air Diffuser Vent F30
I'm pretty much in the same boat as Big Guy, with the exception of filter change intervals. Shockingly I change mine every other
month-ish. Anyway, back to the QuietAir elbow and filter, no blackened areas on either.

I'm not surprised you guys haven't seen discolored filters. Since you use the ResMed Airsense 10 Autoset, those filters are not very fine.

DreamStation, on the other hand, has a very fine filter that snaps onto the not fine filter. I see discoloration within weeks, if not sooner.

This leads me to wonder if DreamStation users might not get those black spots on their QuietAir diffusers.

The filters on the Resmed machine may not be as fine as those on the dreamstation but they should still catch much of the dirt seen in the diffuser packing. And even if that's incorrect, why are Resmed users not seeing any discoloration?

I wasn't sure about the discoloration in the QuietAir Diffusers.......until I did a side-by-side comparison of the one I'm currently using, to the two new ones I have.

All three appear to be identical.  Dont-know
