Use our replacement schedule below to see what you need to replace: Product Replacement Time Reason Cushions breakdown and lose seal over time. Frequent cleanings with proper disinfectants like Control III will increase the life of your cushion. Over time headgear stretches out requiring over tightening to keep your mask in place. The more you wash headgear the more quickly the elastic wears out. Detach your hose by pulling on the rubber end, not the actual tubing to prevent wear to the cusp. Mineral deposits build up over time and compromise air quality and delivery. Mineral deposit built up in your humidifier can be unsanitary and irritating to your sinuses. Using distilled water and emptying your chamber each morning will increase the life of your humidifier. Reusable filters are meant to be rinsed and reused, but not for longer than six months. New filters mean cleaner, higher quality air intake. Fine filters can't be washed, only replaced. Since these filters catch fine particles, they must be changed more frequently.
