Using the SoClean 2 CPAP Sanitizing Machine
The CPAP Shop explains how the SoClean2 CPAP cleaner allows you to eliminate mask wipes and sanitize your CPAP equipment to be 99.9% bacteria-free!
The machine works with most CPAP machines and masks, and no water is needed. When you use the SoClean to sanitize your CPAP mask, tubing and reservoir, you do not have to disassemble the mask, tubing and humidifier. Instead of water, it uses activated oxygen to sanitize the mask, hose, and reservoir.
Using the SoClean 2
To do this, you simply connect the SoClean 2 to the back of your CPAP and place the mask inside the SoClean, with the tubing hooked to an adapter that is connected to your CPAP machine. Set the timer, and the SoClean makes a low humming sound for about 10 minutes until the cycle is finished.
SoClean 2 Uses Activated Oxygen to Clean
The machine works by pushing activated oxygen through the tubing and adapter, inside the reservoir of the CPAP machine, and then back to the SoClean 2 machine. The mask, tubing, and reservoir are cleaned along the way.
Activated oxygen kills bacteria, mold, virus, and fungus. When the machine adds a third atom of oxygen to the O2 oxygen that we breathe, it forms a new molecule of ozone (O3), otherwise known as activated oxygen, that destroys bacteria and viruses through oxidation.
After about two hours, the O3 reverts back into O2. The very first time you use your SoClean 2, you should pre-wash your mask, hose, and reservoir using the included Neutralizing Pre-Wash. Any time you add new equipment to your CPAP therapy, you should use the pre-wash on it.
How Often Should You Use Your SoClean2?
It is recommended that at a minimum, you clean your CPAP machine weekly. The SoClean2 can be used daily to help reduce bacteria build-up. SoClean 2 is so easy that you can increase your cleaning frequency to prevent illness and infection.
Maintaining Your SoClean2
To remove dust, you may wipe down the SoClean 2 with a damp cloth. The SoClean check valve assembly and filter cartridge should be replaced every 6 months. A reminder message on the display will appear after approximately 6 months, depending upon usage.
