How Often Should I Clean the Filters?
- Clean the gray foam filter at least once every two weeks and replace it with a new one every six months. The white ultra-fine filter is disposable and should be replaced after 30 nights of use or sooner if it appears dirty. DO NOT clean the ultra-fine filter.
- Wash the gray foam filter in warm water with a mild detergent. Rinse thoroughly to remove all detergent residue. Never install a wet filter into the device; it should be completely dry before reinstalling it. If the foam or white filter is torn, replace it.
Caution: Dirty inlet filters may cause high operating temperatures that may affect device performance. Regularly examine the inlet filters as needed for integrity and cleanliness.
- Do not use solutions containing vinegar, bleach, chlorine, alcohol, aromatics, moisturizers, antibacterial agents or scented oils to clean any part of the system or air tubing. These solutions may cause damage and reduce the life of the product.
- Do not expose any part of the system or tubing to direct sunlight as it may deteriorate the product If any visible deterioration of a component is apparent (cracking, tears, etc.) the component should be discarded and replaced.
- Note: The headgear may be washed without being taken apart. The dye used in the headgear may run during the first wash
