Insulated Tube Cover Overview
- Just unzip the tube cover.

- Zip the tube cover closed.
- Fold over the zipper tab.
- Wrap the Velcro strap around zipper tab to secure.
- Install CPAP tube with Premium cover between mask and machine.
The image below from Fisher & Paykel explains how rainout is formed. Warm, moist air leaves the heated humidifier and travels through the CPAP tube. As air flows through the tube, the temperature of the room causes the tube to cool. As the tube cools, the air inside releases its moisture, and creates condensation in the hose.
Solutions to rainout include:
- Raise the temperature of your bedroom.
- Keep your CPAP machine at the same level as your bed.
- Insulate your tubing with a hose cover like Snugglehose.
- Reduce the temperature setting on your heated humidifier.
- Purchase a CPAP machine with a rainout reduction comfort feature.
- Some machine systems offer a compatible heated CPAP hose which maintains the temperature from the machine all the way to the mask, reducing the occurrence of rainout. The list of available heated hoses can be found here: Hoses With Heating Coils.
- If your machines uses a standard hose, consider the Hybernite Heated Rainout Control System.
Insulating the CPAP hose will help maintain the moisture in the airflow all the way to the mask.

Not knowing about cpap.com until earlier this year, I was oblivious to all the great products that are out there for people with sleep apnea , and they're all on this website. We prefer sleeping in a cool room, but the past winter months were terrible as it relates to condensation build up in the cpap hose. My machine has an attached humidifier and the condensation build up in the hose would get so bad that the moisture dripped onto my face waking me up most every night. This would happen even with the humidifier on it's lowest setting. I purchased this hose cover because it was insulated AND had a zipper for easy removal / cleaning. I am very happy to say that it really works to protect the warmer inner hose air from the cool room air. It must be said that it will not work 100% of the time as there were a few nights that got so cold in the bedroom that there was some slight condensation. I certainly am happy with this cover as it allows me to sleep in a cool room with my comforter on without fear of being woken up. more...

I like this cover for the tubing....my cat doesn't, so that's good, because he turned my last tubing into a water sprinkler! He must have bit it while I was sleeping, because I do not leave it out. This cover is perfect...thank you! more...

I bought the Insulated cover, not because my warmed air gets too cold, but because my cat likes to chew on my air tube. I'm hoping this prevents him from biting thru the air tube. A new use for a great product! more...

If you have a zipper-less cover, you HAVE to get one of these. Much easier to put on, quiets the tube, allows it to slide effortlessly and helps with condensation. The easy of installation is reason enough though. Brilliant idea. more...
Does the trick keeps the condensation down. No gurlgling noise.
