Hope2Sleep

These Hose Covers are handmade locally and exclusively for us  here in the UK.  As well as being essential to prevent 'rainout' for people who use humidification, they also look nicer on the hose to take a away the clinical look in the bedroom.

If your particular size of Hose Cover is not available, we can have your size made in your choice of the available colours by special request.

 


The CPAP, BiPAP and Ventilator Hose Cover, is designed to give insulation to the CPAP Hose, preventing the water accumulating in the mask and tubing - especially in cooler temperatures.  This often results in water splashing your face, collecting in the mask (known as 'rainout', thus giving you yet more disturbed sleep).  The Hose Lift is also a very popular product to help with this and with both the Hose Cover AND the Hose Lift,  this is almost guaranteed to cure the problem!

The Hose Covers also have other uses, as well as insulation:-

  • Protects the tube from holes and rips which causes air to leak from the tube, thus resulting in lower CPAP pressures.  (In this respect, always examine your hoses regularly in case any small holes form).
  • Takes away the clinical effect of the plastic tubing in your bedroom.
  • The soft fleece is also a pleasant feel to your skin instead of the plastic ribbed tube hose, which can also be cold in cooler temperatures.
  • If your tube lays on the bed, the Hose Covers also help stop them slipping about on the bedding.
  • Stops the noise of the hose banging on the headboard or bedside unit etc., when it can move as you toss and turn in your sleep. (Many caravanners use them for this reason).
  • Many people have also commented that the CPAP machine is quieter when they use their Hose Cover on their tubing!

The covers come ready made in a choice of 6 ft, 8 ft or 10 ft (different sizes can be made by request) and are easy to fit with velcro fastenings on each end to secure them.  Instructions are included on the packaging, and if you use a mask which has an extra small mini tube, then you will also need a Mini Hose Cover for full protection from 'rainout'.


There are 14 various designs and colours available:-

  • Blue
  • Black
  • Grey
  • Cream
  • Pink
  • Camouflage
  • Clouds + Sheep
  • Purple Minnie/Mickey
  • Owls
  • Pink with Bears
  • White with Black Paws
  • Black with White Paws
  • Tiger Print
  • Leopard Print

IMPORTANT

If the mask you are using has a smaller slim hose/tube attached to the mask, you will also need to purchase a matching Mini Hose Cover to provide full insulation from 'rainout' or the smaller tubing will attract 'rainout' whilst the large hose is protected with insulation.


HELPFUL HINTS

  • Some people buy a slightly larger size than their hose, ie 8 ft cover for a 6 ft hose or 10 ft cover for an 8 ft hose etc. This will give even more insulation and the only difference is there will be more gathering in the cover on the hose and it will be slightly heavier
  • The covers will fit both the standard and slimline hoses (slimline hoses also have the same size ends as standard hoses so the covers have to be the same width in order to fit over the end pieces).

FITTING INSTRUCTIONS

The Hose Cover should easily slide over most hoses.
For any difficulties (especially with rubber-ended hoses) wrap one end of the hose with aluminium foil or clingfilm before sliding the hose cover over the wrapped end. When fitted on the hose, remove the foil/film from the end of the hose and secure the Hose Cover with the velcro wraps. This is also printed on the outer sleeve of the packaging.

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS

  • Hand wash or machine wash in cool water, no more than 30 degrees.
  • Air dry or tumble dry at a low temperature.
  • DO NOT iron.

Works!
21 May 2024  | 

I had to have my humidifier turned up which caused massive rain out - machine making gurgling noises, face & masked soaking wet & hose blowing out water when I removed it.
I put the machine lower than head level & bought 1 of these as recommended.
I was sceptical if Iím honest as to whether it would be enough as it was all very wet but it all worked brilliantly & problem solved!
The order arrived within about 3 days, works well & good service as always!

This cute little furry thing has helped to completely eliminate the rainout I was experiencing. As a newbie who sleeps in a cold bedroom, I was horrified for the first few nights to find myself waterboarded by my mask! I had no idea what was happening! This lagging tube along with the hose lift has been amazing.
Itís easy to put on and take off for cleaning. Perfect!!

I have found this very useful. It takes time to put over the hose. I put the hose under the covers with me for 15 minutes before putting the mask on to warm the hose and the air and it has made a huge difference. The cover is cosy and soft so the cold touch of the hose doesn't wake me up anymore.

Thanks to Hope2Sleep for their help and support when ordering this item.

Bought this item purely because some reviews said it helped reduce noise levels. My wife is delighted that the hose no longer scrapes on the bed frame. So, an excellent purchase. Just for that reason.

Took advice and bought larger 8 ft with the paws cover. Was a bit tight getting it on but has certainly done the trick no spitting at me any more. Delivery fast as usual and well packed thanks again!

After getting some water droplets in my hose and mask I decided to give this a try. I use it in combination with the hose lift and find it works very efficiently. I havenít had any water droplets since!
I also didnít have any problems feeding the hose through and didnít have to resort to cling film or suchlike.
Thanks hope 2sleep for your excellent service once again.

A little fiddly to fit a 6ft hose through, but having fitted it once you can use a piece of string to remove it and pull it back through after cleaning. solved the rain-out in my case though. Thank you Kath and the team for another speedy delivery.

This hose cover has certainly been one of the best purchases I've made. Well made and worth the money - my air feed is always at a comfortable temperature and no cold nose or uncomfortable nasal passages.

Wish I'd bought this from the start - keeps my heated hose cosy, now the air blowing out of the mask vents is not icy cold and no more dry mouth and nose bleeds. Cosy, looks smart (cream fleece) and highly recommend.

So pleased to hear the hose cover has helped by warmer up the air. If you're not using a CPAP Humidifier that should help too.

ORDERS

Shipping

We try our best to ship all orders received by us Monday-Friday on the same working day if received before 12 noon, and more often than not orders processed before 3pm will be despatched the same day whenever possible.  Weekend or UK bank holiday orders are sent out the next working day.  An automated email is sent when products have been despatched so please check your spam box and add us to your safe senders list.  Also, if you do not receive an email confirmation, please check that you have typed the correct email address in your account.

All orders are sent via 1st class mail within the UK.  Masks and some other more expensive products are always sent via 'signed for' insured delivery and cannot be left in 'safe' places, but there is the option for an alternative shipping address when processing the orders. 

Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before making a payment.  On the rare occasion delivery charges are miscalculated by the website, a refund will be sent, as it is not our policy to make money on postage charges and neither do we add the cost of delivery into the price and offer so-called  'free delivery' like some sites and Ebay pressurise sellers to do! 

Wherever possible with larger parcels, we try to re-use boxes to keep shipping costs down and protect the environment.

If a product is out of stock and the order contains multiple items, the 'in stock' items will be sent immediately and further items will follow upon arrival with no further postage charges incurred.  

Important for International Orders

We can ship most products internationally, but all prices are in UK British Pounds and if paying by debit or credit card the bank will automatically convert to the current conversation rate.  Likewise, if you choose the Paypal option, they will convert into your currency for you as payment is made.  

International orders are sent via tracked Airmail, and whilst we're happy to ship internationally, we cannot be held responsible for any delays at Customs at your end, or charges that may be added in your own country, such as customs fees and import tax on delivery, which are determined by your country’s import laws and are beyond our control. Therefore, it is the customer’s responsibility to pay these charges, and certain courier companies will not be able to deliver the goods to you without pre-payment of any charges. From our experience, it appears to be randomised as to which parcels incur extra charges, but please know that all accompanying paperwork is filled in correctly when shipping and there is nothing more we can do, as much as we'd like to.

If you purchase from us out of the UK or you move to another country after purchasing products, please be aware that the warranty for CPAP machines, masks and parts from the manufacturers are under warranty  with the manufacturer based in the UK, so you will be responsible for sending the product back to us and will need to pay postage to get the product back to you after exchange or repair, as the manufacturer will not pay for shipping in any country outside of the UK.


RETURNS

Masks, CPAP machines and and most other products are exempt from a refund or exchange unless faulty due to health and hygiene issues - as stated in our 'Terms and Conditions', and in particular due to the risk of cross contamination as they cannot be re-sold. The Consumer Contracts Regulations 28.(3)(a) confirms exemption as follows:-  "exemption in the case of a contract for the supply of sealed goods which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons, if they become unsealed after delivery."

Unopened (sealed) products in their original packing can be returned within 14 days for a refund of the product cost, but the purchaser is to pay the return postage, and we would advise retaining proof of postage. This excludes any faulty goods, for which postage will be reimbursed.  A full refund for the price of the product will be issued when received by us, less the original postage charges when the order was sent to you.
