RE: Resmed S10 water leak from humidifier
I recently replaced the HumidAir Humidifier in my ResMed AirSense 10 because one of the two hinge pins on the humidifier lid snapped off on the humidifier that originally came with the unit. I have had very good success with the A10 since I upgraded to it on June 3, 2015. When I first got the A10 I had some minor issues with water in the hose (with the humidifier setting anywhere over 5), so I purchased a ClimateLineAir heated hose and that took care of the water in the the tube issue. I did notice, before I started using the ClimateLineAir heated hose, that overnight, with the humidifier setting on 4 (which seemed to be the max setting before I would get water in the tube), the tank water level would drop 1 line below the MAX water level. When I started using the ClimateLineAir heated hose, overnight, with both the Climate Ctrl and Tube Temp. settings at Auto, the water level would drop 2 lines below the MAX water level. I was very happy with these results because I was suffering with a dry and blocked nose. However, after replacing the original humidifier, because of the damaged hinge pin issue with a "DISHWASHER SAFE" humidifier, overnight, with both the Climate Ctrl and Tube Temp. settings still set to Auto, the water level only dropped 1 line below the MAX water level, which is just not enough humidification for me. I realize I will probably have to monkey around with the Climate Ctrl and Tube Temp. settings to increase my humidification level to my comfort level. But, I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed this (less water usage) happening - when changing over to a "DISHWASHER SAFE" humidifier?

They only start leaking once the pressure is on and since it is from a weld you won't see any cracks. As for the amount of water used each night that can vary widely with the RH and temperature of the air from the room. Another problem the tanks have is there were several lots that had a manufacturing defect and they will make a whistling sound when the machine is in use.


This is correct!! I received my new unit this fall. In mid December I started noticing a couple drops leaking when I removed the reservoir every morning. After about a week it failed and dumped half a tank of water overnight onto my nightstand, ruining the top. It was the sonic weld that failed. I received a replacement from my supplier, and just last night the replacement tank blew out all at once at the same weld. Luckily I had just laid down to sleep and knew it happened.

What I believe may be happening is the weld fails because of the BiPap pressure fluctuations. My settings are something like 10/18. Basically, the full pressure blows into that chamber, and the chamber expands and contracts slightly like a lung. With my high pressures, I don't think the weld is strong enough and fails after many repeated pressure and temperature cycles. It seems to be a poor design, especially since the seam is below water level!

My supplier says I seem to be the only one having trouble, but I think my pressure settings may be higher than normal. Should last longer than 2 months though!

I agree. The tank should definitely last longer than 2 months.

Mine has been in use for almost a year now. Guess I should consider myself lucky.
