It's probably your specific water interacting with the plastic that is causing the staining. My brother had his for 2 years (busted by nursing staff) without any staining. Same stuff you get. Staining doesn't change how it works, so I'd just use it. I don't know about the metal thing.

Notice that I'm on the ResMed and not Respironics:

I still have my original humidifier tub and at least 2 others. All in very good to excellent shape. Original tub is about a year old. Sorry, I cannot remember specific timing. Used mostly distilled grocery water and very irregular Dawn warm water soak & air dry. At least on the original. Others just waiting on the shelf.

"Also from that Snopes item, my favorite silly claim about Coke: "In many states the highway patrol carries two gallons of Coke in the truck to remove blood from the highway after a car accident.""

Well, yeah, of course cops don't do that.  It's the wrecker driver's job to clean up the roadway, not the cops.
There.  I said it.

I agree with the others.

If I saw rust on mine, I'd be inclined to toss it and get a new one. My insurance covers a new chamber every few (6?) months. They're also cheap enough on Amazon. (I know you're not in the USA, so your experience may be different.)

I keep mine clean by:
- dumping and rinsing it each morning.
- filling the bottom of it with vinegar (probably 1/4 cup), topping it off with water, and then dumping it about 15 minutes later
- periodically I wash it with dish soap
