ResMed Climateline Hose - Cleaning
The ResMed Climateline Hose is 1.9 meters in length. The tube cleaning brush I purchased from [commercial DME link removed] is 1.5 meters in length.

For a normal hose this is not a problem because you use the brush from one end of the tube and then use it from the other end thereby covering the entire tube length with overlap

The ResMed Climateline Hose has a right angle fitting on one end which makes it impossible to insert the brush from that end. As a result I can clean only 1.5 meters of a 1.9 meter hose

Any suggestions?

RE: ResMed Climateline Hose - Cleaning
Although I don't have one of these yet, I have read that others just clean it well like the slimline hose in warm soapy (dawn dish soap) water, rinse well and hang to dry.

Personally when I get mine, I will probably want to use a blow dryer on cool for several minutes at the electrical connection end just for peace of mind. Funny enough, I asked my DME about them and how to clean them. She had no idea and told me to let her know what I learned!!!!

This is exactly how I have cleaned mine with zero issues.

RE: ResMed Climateline Hose - Cleaning
That how I wash mine too, also hook mask end of the hose into the hot water tap and rinse well
I've some spares, but haven't unpacked yet, like to use the same one until fall apart, pricey around here and insurance does not pay for them

I'm sure someone did mention, they use air compressor for drying but haven't got one in the tool shed

Piston driven compressors that are often found in shops carry a small amount of compressor oil in the output. I wouldn't dry my hose with one.

RE: ResMed Climateline Hose - Cleaning
As someone else posted in the forum awhile back, if you use humidity there is no need to fully dry the hose since it will be wet soon after turning it on. I drip dry mine and whatever residual just stays there until I hook it up and turn it on. No issues to date.

RE: ResMed Climateline Hose - Cleaning
If you have some kind of gunk in your hose, then you need to use something. I used to have to clean out thick aquarium hoses which often had an algae buildup. I had a piece of steel in a small pouch attached to a cord which was then attached to a towel that will fit through the hose (tea towels worked great for this). Then you hold up the hose, and let the steel with the cord fall through to the other end of the hose. Soak for 15-20 minutes. Then gently pull the towel through. It dislodged most of the gunk. Sometimes I had to do it twice or use a terry cloth strip.

For MOST of us, just soaking it and running the water through is sufficient to clean it, but hey, different environments.

Bad design I know. I was able to compress the accordion hose enough to scrub the last bit. I bough 2 of the cleaning brushes, and both are too short.

RE: ResMed Climateline Hose - Cleaning
I must be an oddball.
I simply replace my heated hoses every year or two and don't worry about cleaning.
I also practice the 5 second rule if I drop a bit of food.
I figure you need a few germs to keep your immune system on its toes.
