I don't use it every night as I am trying to transition over to the Airfit P10 only because my DME can't get the Breeze for me and I am too lazy to get a script sent to another DME. I am a side sleeper and the Breeze is perfect for me. I rigged the Airfit hose to go up over the top of my head and for the most part it works. I kinda got long winded here but, the Breeze is not your problem.
It is all puzzling, but that's what the Tech guy (I had to really work at getting through to them because the frontline people don't want us to talk directly to them) told me. I told him I was having terrible problems and when I lifted my mask the water was spraying like a garden hose. He asked what mask and when I said a Breeze, he started laughing fits, and said "good luck" - that as Airsense 10 would cause major water "flooding" with a Breeze - obviously something other people had discovered and they knew about. I sent 2 different machines back to the big online seller and they said the machines were fine. But they only turn them on for a couple of hours - they don't test them with the masks we use for 8 or more hours. So they pronounced it "non-repaired" and shipped it back. So I have a $900 paperweight that I can use to water my garden if I put the Breeze on it. And yes, I know there are tons of people that use the Airsense 10 with climate control just fine with a bunch of different masks. My sense is that it is a little bit - maybe - because of the Breeze - but I think there is a machine problem. But I have met a brick wall because the president of the big online seller said he doesn't give a rat's behind and they are not going to do anything.
I have also tried manual humidity - maximum of 3 - but that still causes substantial regular rainout - enough to cause waking and choking and having the shake out the mask/hose all night. I had also asked the Tech about the inhale/exhale noises on the humidifier, and he said they knew some of the seals were bad and were correcting the problem. So the replacement Airsense 10 they sent had the humidifier bin that sealed properly. So I did get one problem fixed. I still have not decided whether to go all ballistic with the seller or just save the stress and get rid of the beast and move on. I did try it with a nasal mask and it was just a little rainout, but I can't sleep with anything but the Breeze - so lucky me - I pick the machine (at least the broken version) that doesn't work with it.
Just curious - have you tried using the Breeze with the climate control hose and auto humidity? That's where I get the tsunami of water - using manual settings just causes moderate rainout, but still too much water to sleep through the night. My room is at 69 degrees. My S9 has had no rainout for 6 years, but the ResMed geniuses built more humidity into the Airsense 10, and the Tech said he thought it was not a good idea, because many people have had some degree of problems with it - only a few as bad as mine, and the only severe ones he knew of were with the Breeze mask.
