This Helps With Cleaning...

Every morning I remove the reservoir, drain it, and wipe it dry with a Bounty paper towel. I take out the seal and turn it 90`so it keeps the reservoir open slightly to air out. I also disconnect the hose from the machine, disconnect the mask from the hose. This lets the hoses dry out.

I do that and use a forced air blower on hoses when they are visibly damp inside.

Works like a charm.

I disinfect now & then with thyme oil disinfecting wipes

It's a squirrel cage blower I made with some plastic parts and a 12 volt wall wart
power supply. I made a little air filter for it to keep vermin out too
