Find out what your said about their exoerience with Soclean CPAP cleaner and sanitizer
“Best $300 I evermspent on my health, other then the CPAP itself. Ive had the Soclean for months now and have never had to scrub the tubes and the mask since. It does have a slight ozone smell for a few seconds, but disperses quickly. The benefits way outway a slight annoying smell. Never had another nasal infection since. Highly recommended.”
“It is amazing, I love it! Such a time saver and so convenient and easy to use. I admit I was not one to clean my cpap machine as I should and now I never have to worry about it. I have been using it for almost 3 months and it’s the best investment I have made.”
What Is SoClean Cartridge Filter Kit?
The cartridge filter kit is a combination pack that you can buy in addition to the SoClean CPAP cleaner and contains:
- The cartridge Filter (with attached O-ring) – This is responsible for converting the activated oxygen into regular oxygen once the cleaning is done and on its way out of the SoClean’s chamber.
- Check Valve Replacement – This avoids water from the CPAP to damage its own electronics to avoid shorting out the circuit.
Both of these elements are recommended to be changed every 3-6 months (depending on their wear and tear) and it is important not to forget as it can damage the functioning of the machine if not maintained correctly. This combination pack is beneficial for getting both replaceable elements at the same time.
SoClean CPAP cleaner Alternatives: Sani Bot & VirtuCLEAN
There is more than one way to clean your CPAP equipment and although the SoClean CPAP cleaner is the current market favorite, it isn’t for everyone and there are other models out there to consider. Two examples include the Sani Bot and the VirtuCLEAN which we will now look at in a little more detail, comparing against the SoClean to see how it measures up.
How It Works:
Starting with the Sani Bot which is a CPAP mask sanitizer that costs substantially less than the SoClean at almost half the price. It works by being filled with water and having a specific transducer that creates small air pockets that create bubbles to loosen dirt, debris and bacteria. This combined with the disinfectant tablets provides a deep cleaning solution at a medical grade level once your tubing and mask are submerged in the chamber.
How much Sani Bot Cost?
The initial cost of the Sani Bot is; $155 which in most packages provides both the machine and the cleaning tablets. However, because it relies on the use of cleaning tablets it can cost more long-term as these are around $20 per 120 tablets once the initial 60 that come with the device are used.
Comparison Against SoClean:
Other than the obvious cost difference, they also both use different cleaning technology with the SoClean focusing on activated oxygen (ozone) without water and the Sani Bot preferring the tap water and tablet solution. Also, this machine is shorter than the SoClean if you were looking to fit it into a bedside table or shelf to make it blend in more.
How VirtuCLEAN Works?
Next, the VirtuCLEAN which is a different end of the spectrum device that focuses on being small and compact without using water, detergents or cleaning solutions. Like the SoClean it uses ozone to disinfect the CPAP mask and machinery and is connected to the CPAP hoses and turned on.
How much VirtuCLEAN Cost?
The VirtuCLEAN costs around $280 which is the only financial outlay you should need with this machine as it also comes with an 18-month warranty and no upkeep costs.
Comparison Against SoClean CPAP cleaning machine:
The key feature of this device is that it is compact and lightweight at only 8oz which can be more suitable for those with less space at home or frequent travelers. It is also cordless when in use and has a charging time of around 2 hours which can last for around 7 cleaning cycles before charging. Some of the other benefits of this device are that there are no long-term costs because the virtuCLEAN doesn’t have a filter that needs replacing every 6 months or prewash to use and unlike the SoClean, the cleaning cycle is under 40 minutes start to finish compared to the SoClean’s 2 hours.
These two devices are different ends of the spectrum with the VirtuCLEAN being the closest to the SoClean CPAP cleaner and the Sani Bot using opposite technology. As you can see, depending on your personal preference for cleaning types, living space and types of use will help you determine which CPAP cleaning equipment that you should use.
Is Soclean covered by insurance?
Unfortunately, at this time Soclean CPAP cleaner and sanitizer doesn’t cover by any health insurances.
I think that SoClean CPAP cleaner and sanitizer is the real deal. It provides an easy solution for people with sleep apnea in cleaning their CPAP equipment.therefore, I recommend this CPAP cleaner and sanitizer machine to anyone who has had trouble cleaning their CPAP using other cleaners.
SoClean Inc. was founded in July of 2011 in Uxbridge, Massachusetts, with the goal of improving the health and quality of life for those who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and other sleep disorders.
