Ozone and Bacteria; Why CPAP Hydration Fluid and SoClean are Complementary

I’m sure most of you have heard of ozone in relation to its presence in the Earth’s atmosphere. But, did you know ozone is also a very good disinfectant for microbial growth like bacteria, mold and some fungus? You can learn more about ozone and how it destroys bacteria in this Link.

Because ozone is such a great disinfectant, many companies have started utilizing the sanitizing properties to fight bacterial outbreaks. When looking at the CPAP industry, two companies are utilizing ozone in order to fight and keep cpap machines clean. Both Aireon Therapeutics and SoClean are utilizing ozone as their proprietary sanitizing ingredient. Aireon Therapeutics uses ozone as the final step in the purification process of CPAP Hydration Fluid and SoClean utilizes the gas to clean hydration chambers, masks and tubes in their cleaning process.

This utilization of ozone makes CPAP Hydration Fluid and the SoClean system the perfect complement of CPAP essentials for fighting bacteria outbreaks. The purity of CPAP Hydration Fluid reduces the chance bacteria, molds or fungus can grow on any of your cpap equipment and SoClean decimates anything that could be potentially harmful. The combination is truly exceptional at killing and preventing any outbreaks or contamination of your cpap machine, thus keeping you safe and healthy. Try this combination today!


Can Daily CPAP Use Be Convenient?

We hear all the time how inconvenient it is to use Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machines daily.  We hear problems from users that range from feelings of claustrophobia wearing the mask to complaints of the necessary daily cleaning.  The cleaning is necessary because moist, warm environment of the hydration tank, hose and mask are the idea environment for microbial invaders like bacterial and mold to grow.  When improperly cleaned or left unclean users can sometimes see bacterial growth or they’ll notice the smell of mildew or bad tastes associated with using their CPAP device. These cleaning and other inconvenience complaints helped us create CPAP Hydration Fluid.  

Our patented CPAP Hydration Fluid is ultra pure and doesn’t promote microorganism growth in your heated hydration chamber, your hose or your mask.  Distilled water can still have dissolved solids and micronutrients that could promote bacterial growth. After opening gallon jugs, bacteria, molds and fungus start invading the bottle as soon as you open the cap.  

Our patented product is designed with your safety and your convenience in mind.  CPAP Hydration Fluid undergoes a 9 step purification process to remove all dissolved solids, micronutrients and heavy metals.  Each 12 ounce single serve bottle of hydration fluid can be used easily at home or while traveling.  Don’t take our word for the value CPAP Hydration Fluid provides to the user, listen to Don, who has been using the product for 3 months.  

Why You Shouldn’t Use Tap Water in Your CPAP Hydration Chamber

While manufacturers recommend distilled water for use in your continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device, many people still use tap water as their hydration of choice.  Tap water is both harmful to your device and it can be harmful to you, if used consistently.  Lets take a look at why you shouldn’t use tap water in your CPAP device.  

Tap water is brought to your home through a labyrinth of usually old, metal pipes traversing the underground of your local city or community.  Tap water can pick up metals from these pipes and contains minerals as it travels to your tap.  Using tap water in your hydration chamber will leave heavy, white mineral deposits in your chamber and on the internal workings of your CPAP device as the water is heated and evaporated.  These mineral deposits can feed fungal growth and they will clog the delicate hoses in your machine with mineral build up, over time.  Tap water also contains extra elements like Fluorine and/or chlorine which are used to kill any microorganisms or living creatures that may contaminate a water supply.  If you use tap water as your hydration fluid of choice, you will be vaporizing and inhaling these elements.  Some data suggests these elements can be harmful at concentrations in the body and is another reason for not using tap water in your heated hydration chamber.

Most CPAP device manufacturers prescribe using distilled water in your CPAP device to eliminate the buildup of deposited minerals in your hoses and hardware.  Distilled water can still contain some soluble materials.  Unfiltered distilled water can still contain volatile organic compounds (VOC) which vaporize at lower temperatures than water and will remain if not properly filtered.  Overall, distilled water is recommended for the machine, not for the user.  

Tap water is the least desirable form of hydration for your CPAP device.  Your local tap water can contain heavy metals, other solubles and chemicals like chlorine or fluorine.  These dissolved contaminants can be bad for both your CPAP device and/or bad for your health.  Whatever you choose to use as your hydration fluid of choice, make tap water your last choice.
