OMG now DME are selling SoClean
I can’t believe what I just saw on Facebook from my DME. Guess they don’t care that ozone ruins the seals. 

Note I was going to include a screenshot from my phone but keep getting file to big. Don’t know how becouse there no way to make it smaller than already is.

I wonder how long until it becomes reimbursable by Medicare?

When it becomes medically necessary and is prescribed by physicians...never.

Screenshots or photos from your phone have gotten really big due to high resolution screens. My iPhone 8 Plus screenshots are 1242x2208 and 2.72 MB. The limit on Apnea Board is 1-MB, which will handle lower resolutions.  Anything over 1080 width is too large and needs to be resized, and 800x600 is just fine on the forum.  There are many free apps (I use "Image Size') that will resize your screenshots and photos and save a smaller image.  800  x 1422 is still huge and cuts the image to 355 kb, and a more appropriate size 400x711 is only 110 kb.  Looks like I need to do some wiki work with images.

Ok the alert said 700kb and I’m also using an iPhone. Actually iPhone 8 Plus. And I just tried emailing my self the screenshot which gives me a pop up in the mail app showing the size and option to send it smaller. WOW actual size 3.6 MB. Well one way around it now is I can email the image to my self and tell the system to send medium which puts it under 700 KB.

Robert, that will work for the screenshot, but consider getting the Image Size app or something similar. It lets you control the final output much better. I'll admit, your email method is what I used for a while.

After two months of every-night use, my APAP system is still pristine and working fine with nothing other than my SoClean machine (also used daily) and occasional exterior wipe of the gel pillows.

What evidence do you have that ozone ruins the seals in my setup?

RE: OMG now DME are selling SoClean
My Doctor said that in the past with the old model S9, the seals would degrade. if you have a newer machine, don't worry. Rumors expand as they age.

It is not logical for a company to have been selling for so long if it damages the only thing it is to be used for.
