RE: dreamstation humidifier and hose leak
I have the same problem. I took the humidifier lid seal out and washed it with dish soap and hot water and let dry. I also wiped down the inside lid to dry it. After the seal was dry I put it back in place and noticed that it had a tighter fit around the swivel clip. Not sure but I think some moisture worked its way between the swivel clip and seal causing a whistle sound. I did a mask test at 25cm and no whistle while turning the swivel. I'll see how it goes tonight. You might want to try it. Only takes a few minutes.
