Question heated hose
I have vpap s with hi5 / heated hose also . I under stand that with the heated hose the temp on the machine is self regulating. But mine stays at 80 degrees, opr where ever I set it. thats ok but I run out of water on nights that is lower humidity. I must have my machine set wrong some where? where should I check & what should it be set at so the heated hose works correctly? Dont-know
Thank You

RE: heated hose
if temp set at 80F (auto mode) the temp displayed on the screen doesn't change but the climate control adjust humidity level of 80% relative humidity and protect against rainout.

manual mode gives more flexibility but without rainout protection

the higher setting and mouth leak can use more water

What Zonk said plus, you may need to go to manual mode with a lower humidity setting when the relative humidity is really low in your house.

Your VPAP's higher pressure combined with the larger 22mm ClimateLine hose means you're moving a much larger volume of air AND water molecules through the humidifier than those of us using a regular S9 CPAP with a 15mm ClimateLine hose at a lower pressure, so, you're using more water at the same humidifier setting than a regular S9 CPAP would use even if they're set to an identical temperature and humidity level.

You're going to have to play with the humidity setting to figure-out where it needs to be to last an entire night without running out of water, the hose temperature setting is to keep the hose warm enough so that the cooler ambient air temperature won't cause condensation inside the hose aka rainout.

Oh man, thanks for warning me. I requested a ClimateLine hose because of experience with rainout (which took some time to diagnose, all the connections to the machine, the mask, etc until I finally found the problem) so that's very important to me. I haven't received it yet - still awaiting the government funding but it's coming. I'd hate to do something to defeat the purpose.
