Safety Water Supply
Consider the safety and quality of your water supply before you use it on your CPAP devices.
Boiling water will kill microbes, but it will not remove minerals or chemical contaminants. These minerals that make water "hard" include calcium, magnesium, iron, and others—if they are present in the water inside the humidifier's water chamber, it may discolor the container and damage the machine over time.
Filtered water may remove some minerals but may not remove living organisms or other chemicals, making distilled bottled water the safest option. This is especially true if you are traveling in regions of the world with unsafe water supplies.
Ideal For Travel
These portable bottles make traveling with CPAP equipment easy and safe. Continue to use your devices with the same safety measures you do at home, thanks to the convenience of distilled bottled water.
Be aware that you'll expose your lungs to the water placed in the humidifier, which is why you need to clean it regularly. Perfumes, colognes, or scented oils should not be placed in the water.
Exposure to fumes from bleach, alcohol, chlorine, or ammonia may damage your lungs. The use of moisturizing, antibacterial, and glycerine-based soaps is also discouraged. Water softeners and descaling agents should also not be used in the reservoir.
Other Uses For Distilled Water
Distilled water has multi-purpose functions and may be used in many devices, such as:
– CPAP Machines
– Oxygen Concentrators
– Nebulizer Cleaning
– Nasal Rinses
– Baby Formula
