H5i humidifier issues
#11
Now you've got me wondering about the humidifier, Zonk. I'm using the Climateline. Before I go to sleep after some warmup time, the hot plate feels fairly warm, but in the morning, it is cold. I fill the tank to about that lowest line on the yellow indicator, and in the morning most but not all of the water is gone. That's been fairly consistent.
Guess I need to go into the clinical settings to understand the manual vs auto modes. I'm behind you folks, since right now all I've noticed is that before I connect the Climateline, there is main screen access to setting the humidity level, but that disappears from the main screen menu after the Climateline has been connected. Is that because it goes to auto with the Climateline hooked up?

I'd like to try a Climateline, but they don't make them 10' long and anything less than that won't reach. I wonder if you can couple two Climateline hoses together. Unsure

Dawei - Yeah, no humidity with climateline on "auto". Go into clinical and set to "patient" or "manual" to put the rain drop (i.e. humidity control) out on main screen.

PollCat- Climatelines won't connect end to end. The end that hooks to humidifier has pin conductors for the heating element that runs up the line twists to lock in and line up. Probably wouldn't allow enough juice to be drawn to run two if you figured out a way to hotwire two together.

not possible because of the electrical coil wires
maybe you can use some garden hose connectors Dielaughing

Yes, when you hook up the Climateline (in Auto mode), the machine shifts to a temperature selection. The humidity you set before you attached the hose doesn't mean anything (in Auto mode).

If you go into the Clinician setup area you can change it from Auto to either Manual or Patient. If you set it to Patient, you can change from Auto to Manual in the normal setup area. In Manual mode you can set both the humidifier level and hose temperature, but lose the rainout protection.

I played with mine back and forth for months before I hit the "sweet" spot. Worth the work in comfort!

I bought a hose "Snuggy" at the CPAP store. It's a long flannel cover that fits over the hose, and has Velcro on the ends to hold it in place. I was going to go to the Climateline hose (I have an S9 with a H5i), but they said try the Snuggy, and it works fine.

I have been reading of problems with the newer H5i's, where they tick at night.
