    will do .... Maureen read up on the process they use to sterilize the system and says its valid .... bottom line is it can't hurt .... I don't know if my sinus issues are related but if they grow less or go away, that will be worth a great deal

      I have been a Bipap user for a number of years. Used to be pretty accurate on a number of CPAP forums and many of the SocCean users were sensitive to the ozone that this system uses to kill germs. I personally don't believe that the machine is necessary as I have never had any issues since I began using mine about 5 years ago but this experience may not work for everyone. I clean my water tank once in awhile and use distilled water and wash my mask cushion daily to remove oil but that is about it. I have used the same hose (without cleaning) for about 3-4 years. In fact, the SoClean seemed to have more detractors than proponents but I have no personal experience.

          after 4 nights of use, I can tell a difference .... that being I don't have anywhere near as much trouble with my sinuses .... no need of nose spray to be able to breathe .... no need for overnight sinus meds .... its been a long time since I could last say that .... those results are clear .... in thinking about it, I can think of 2 possible causes .... one being its possible I am somewhat allergic to the disinfectant Maureen has been using .... the other that the disinfectant wasn't completely taking care of the bugs .... in either case, using the machine has generated positive results

            The only problem I have when getting up in the morning is the sinus drainage. I carry around a handful of paper towels for abt an hour and then all is well.

              wouldn't you know it, just before I start using the SoClean machine I start coming down with a cold .... well, about two weeks later, the cold is breaking up .... even with this cold, I can tell my sinuses are in better shape and I contribute that to the machine .... in addition, Maureen is enjoying not having to spend time messing with sanitizing the hoses and nose pillows .... as a side note, Maureen says we are saving $10 or so a month having to buy the sanitizing solution .... granted, that ain't much but it will buy a few gallons of diesel

                UPDATE :

                I've now been using the SoClean machine for 2 months .... my sinus problems are all but gone .... with using the SoClean machine being the only change made during that time, I credit it with the sinus improvement .... prior to using the machine we had to manually clean/sterilize my mask and hose daily .... doing so has been totally eliminated .... with the SoClean, the CPAP's water reservoir is only cleaned manually every 3 or 4 weeks .... bottom line, the SoClean machine appears to living up to its promise
