How do I know that my SoClean Cleaner is really sanitizing?
After the disinfection process has been accomplished, the cycle indicator light will shine green. Your CPAP device will have a light, clean scent.
What if the Odor the SoClean Cleaner Leaves is too Strong for Me?
If you have already treated your equipment with the Neutralizing Pre-Wash, and still feel that the odor is too strong, there are a lot of things you can do: (1) Prior to wearing your mask at night, run your CPAP for 20 seconds to let any residual scent to be blown out. (2) Set the timer so that treatments take place earlier in the day, permitting any residual scent to dissipate by nighttime. (3) Decrease the treatment duration period. You can cut back to as little as five minutes and still receive effective disinfecting. (4) Disinfect your equipment every other day instead of daily.
What if the Indicator Light is Shining Red or Yellow?

What if the Indicator Light is not Shining after a Programmed Cleaning Time?

What if I Missed My Planned Sanitizing Time, but still wish to Sanitize my Device?
In these cases, you can use the Manual feature. See your User manual on how to do this.
Why does my Display Indicate Order Filter Kit?
