Republic of Sleep CPAP Tube Cleaning Brush
ROS CPAP Tube Cleaning Brush Overview
Tired of fumbling with inflexible tube brushes that are difficult to use and hard to maneuver? The Republic of Sleep Tube Brush abandons the traditional wire-based design in favor of a tether-based system with a unique tip that can create a better clean than a traditional tube brush.
A stiff wire tube brush has its problems. It's long, firm, and hard to use. Often, the head of a traditional brush design doesn't clean as well because the bristles don't touch all surfaces, and if they get worn, you'll need to replace the entire brush.
The Republic of Sleep Tube Brush is different. It uses a specially-designed silicone head intended to clean every inch of the inside of the hose, removing harmful deposits from the space, so you can keep your hose cleaner with less effort. The Republic of Sleep Tube Brush uses a durable brush head and may last longer than a traditional tube brush.
The Republic of Sleep CPAP Tube Brush also abandons the traditional wire design used by most tube brushes in favor of a tether-based design, which is basically a long cord that's fed through the length of the tube, and pulled out the other end. It's easier to use. It's also easier to pack and store; fitting into a smaller space with less effort than a long wire you have to forcibly coil up after each use.

Instructions for Use
Please Note: The Tube Brush is compatible with standard (19mm) and slim (15mm) tubing only.
It is not compatible with the DreamStation Go 12mm Micro Tubing or the AirMini Tubing.
Step 1: Apply water and a cleaning element (mild soap or vinegar), if desired, to the tube. Please consult your user manual for advice on what works best with your specific tube. Be sure not to use solvents or cleaning sprays, as these can be toxic.
Step 2: Holding one end of the hose with either hand, use the other hand to insert the weighted end of the Tube Brush into the CPAP tube.
Step 3: Continue to feed the weighted end of the Tube Brush into the CPAP tube until the weight comes out the opposite end, and the brush is positioned near the hose outlet. Tip: This process works best if you keep the tube straight while performing this step.
Step 4: Use your fingers to push the brush end of the Tube Brush fully into the CPAP hose.
Step 5: Grasp the cable and weighted end of the Tube Brush with either hand while using the other hand to grasp the CPAP tube. Tip: Extend the arm holding the CPAP tube as far as comfortable for ease of pulling the Tube Brush through the CPAP tube. The tube is likely to kink. This is normal. Straightening the tube with your hand will reduce this effect.
Step 6: In one motion, pull the Tube Brush through the CPAP tube as far as possible.
Step 7: It may not be possible to pull the entire Tube Brush through in one pass. You'll need to grab the cable and resume pulling the tube brush through the hose, repositioning your hands as needed. You may need to repeat this step several times until you get the brush through the hose.
Step 1: Pad the Tube Brush dry with a cloth towel to remove moisture and prevent the growth of bacteria and mold.
Step 2: The Tube Brush is best stored in a coil. Grasp one end of the Tube Brush while using the other hand to coil the Tube Brush into one hand, much like you would coil a garden hose.
Step3: Wrap the brush end of the Tube Brush several times around the cable.
Step 4: Store the Tube Brush in a drawer or hang from a hook. For best results, keep away from moisture and store in a room with low humidity.
Item as description, reasonably priced ,would highly recommend company, customer service was fantastic
This cleaning brush makes cleaning your CPAP hose so easy. So far, I have no complaints.
I love this brush because it doesn’t have any metal & it’s very flexible. My previous metal cable type brush poked a hole in my heated type hose because one end of the hose has a 90 degree connection. With this brush that won’t happen. more...
The ResMed ClimateLineAir has a rectangle elbow connecting to the CPAP machine, while the other end is straight tube with temperature and humidity sensors right in the middle. The latter one sticks up about halfway in to the tube. The cleaning brush requires substantial force to go through the limited opening at either end. Removing some of the cleaning rings from the brush part makes it somewhat easier to get the brush through on either ends. The required force is still to great in my view and it could break off the sensor tab on the straight tube side. While it cannot break much at the other side with the elbow, it's still no picnic to pull the brush through. In my view, this tube cleaning brush is not suitable for the ResMed ClimateLineAir. For straight tube, without restrictions at either end, it will probably work very well, but not tested... more...
