Hello, ladies & gentlemen.
Just looking for some assistance...
I recently bought a secondhand Resmed Autoset S9, which works fine.
However, I have a problem with the the H5i Stainless Steel Water Tub at the bottom (Resmed Part#: 36800). It gets filled with water & then gets inserted into the Autoset's H5i Humidifier.
It has a very tiny, microscopic hole, from water corrosion. This means it leaks water onto the base plate of the Vaporiser, which is bad.
Is it possible to block this hole, using gaffer tape or anything else? Solder?
I don't want to spend $100 AUS for a complete new water chamber just for this hole!
Can I buy JUST the stainless steel base somewhere for $20 or less?
Are there any other solutions anyone can think of?

I wouldn't use anything on the water chamber to repair a hole; if the repair doesn't hold and it ruins the humidifier, it will be a whole lot more expensive than a new water chamber. The chamber you speak of (the bottom part) is more than half of the chamber as all that is left would be the top. I have never heard of anyone selling the bottom part of the chamber only.
I would recommend looking at the suppliers at the top of the page and see what they cost in the US. Hopefully not $100 and there are some that sends to other countries.
Just my opinion.
WELCOME! to the forum.!
You can get the stainless steel water chamber without buying the whole humidifier.
Hang in there for more responses to your post and much success to you with your CPAP therapy.
