I realise the schedule is not actually prescriptive, but do people really change a mask or hose after three months or a humidifier tub after six months? If so - why? Do they physically wear out, or is it to avoid fungal buildup and infection?
I tend to hang onto stuff as long as it is serviceable and not just replace it for the heck of it.
