    Katiejay,
    You might want to post this request on the North Coast Thread rather than New Members/Technical help. Perhaps the Mods will move if for you.

    Sorry - cant help other wise.

    Olly and the Team

    While you are waiting for someone that can help here in the DR. You might research getting a replacement unit or parts via mail in case you have to default to that. Good luck.

    You might try using his machine with the power supply going through a regulator first, or a good quality UPS. I had all sorts of bother at first here until I got the house on a supply regulator (10Kw load). Just a suggestion.

    My hose got a leak on one trip. I called the company and within a week a new hose arrived in the mail. My question is .....CPAP machines need distilled water which is getting difficult to use. The distilled water for batteries has additives which make it unhealthy for the machines. Is demineralized water acceptable?

    That's what we buy - Aqua Orbis demineralized water. No problems.

    Thanks that is a big help. It is carried by a nearby pharmacy. The actual medical distilled water is getting expensive and has to be special ordered and the last time it took two weeks to arrive at the pharmacy. Out of desperation, I used the demineralized water and it was Aqua Orbis. I hope you get your problem solved but thanks for answering my question. You made my life easier.
