If you run the machine without the humidifier the air will just jet out the side instead of going through the hose. Unless you have the block off plate.



Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.

That there is a design "bug" not a feature.

I dump the water daily. Have excellent tap water and good pipes. I refill with boiled tap water. I wash the humidifier tub, mask, and hose weekly. The hose I just rinse thoroughly. I air dry them all.
