I returned the air mini. Too much money for something that creates such violent reactions. I think they know about this problem. The only suggestion that I can make is wash the hose everyday. That’s hard when traveling but then I washed it prior to using it.
I am not aware of this in my area but I will investigate it. Has the manufacturer agreed to the use of RO instead of Distilled Water?
That's very interesting. I am not aware of this in my area but I will investigate it. Again, thank you.
I don't have the reverse osmosis system in my house. I understand what you say about using soap and water to get rid of the vinegar smell but I can't tolerate it to use it at all. I do use Distilled water as per the instructions. I guess my goal at this point is to find a way not to have to clean everything every day since sometimes I am traveling which makes it difficult to let dry but it is what it is. Thanks for the suggestions. Very appreciated.
I appreciate the response but I can't handle the smell of vinegar and I am allergic to Dawn but do use another dish soap to wash. I am sure vinegar probably does a good job if you can handle the smell.
I did not have a problem with the Airsense until after 2 years. I was told to increase the moisture level which I have done. I don't think that is the answer. With all new equipment for the Airsense 10 I find that I have to rinse the tubing at most in 2 days. I am washing the water reservoir every day. It's really a pain in the neck but I do it. After the Air Mini I bought a Transcend 360 mini cpap for travel. It does have a water reservoir. I have the very same problem. It is really bizarre. I had no problems for many months and then it began to create a major problem as well. This is crazy. The runny nose can last up to 3 days. And I can sneeze 10 times in a row. It's not always this bad, but can be. I know I really need to use it but I am very unhappy. Also, I was told that I would wake up very rested and that has never happened. I still have events at night but not usually more than 4 or 5 per hour which is a huge difference from before.
I purchased an airmini over a year ago. Did not have a problem. I only use it when away from home so not very much. Lately I wake up sneezing like crazy. Nose starts running and this can go on for 1-3 days. I have tried everything including the humidex plus disc for some supposed humidity. New filter, hose, mask etc. even bought a small travel cpap cleaner which seemed to help at first. I have an air sense 10 for home with no problems. This is absolutely terrible. The company, Resmed, tells me they never heard of this problem and I don’t believe them. I have found others online with similar complaints. This was very expensive and I don’t want to just trash it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
