RE: New guy here
Condensation will occur when the relative humidity exceeds the dew point...if you weren't a pilot I would have never said that. Smile

Decreasing the humidity setting, and/or increasing the heated hose in manual settings will solve the problem. Setting humidity and hose temperatures to auto will result in less humidity, but will also prevent condensation since the machine can detect relative humidity.

You could also pin a small blanket around the hose, as a hose warmer. Or thread it through a few pairs of old knee sox (cutting a hole for it). Etc.

Hahaha! Well played sir!

I will go to auto on the humidity and see if that helps.

Thanks again.

BadgoodDeb made an excellent point. Check into "Snugglehose" These are fleece hose covers that not only prevent condensation, but are a lot more comfortable for you. It's a lot nicer to feel soft fleece rub your face than a plastic hose! The come in zipper models which are easier to remove and install for cleaning, or slip-on covers. I have used these tube covers on heated hoses ever since I started this, and wouldn't go without.

Any advice on where to get a good chin strap? I keep waking up with air coming out my mouth and the chin strap that came with my mask isn't staying on properly. It is just one piece of cloth that doesn't stay put throughout the night.
