Republic of Sleep

We're finally pleased to introduce a safe CPAP Hose Brush made of silicone, as we've always been too wary of selling the wire ones, due to hearing of many people damaging their hoses.


This new Silicone Hose Cleaning Tube Brush is a welcome product from the Republic of Sleep, taking away the risk of damage to hoses that can sometimes happen with wire brushes. Also, the silicone is more flexible than a bristle brush head as well as safer, and the wire is plastic-coated making it more comfortable to use. There is also a small weight on the end to feed through the tube.

The Silicone Hose Cleaning Tube Brush is compatible with most tubing -  both standard 19 mm and slimmer 15 mm hoses, but will not work with the travel CPAP machines with the tiny hoses.

This cleaning brush is more expensive than the alternative wire CPAP brushes, which we've never stocked due to hearing of people accidentally damaging their hoses with them, but this new silicone one is certainly cheaper than having to replace a damaged hose! Instructions for use are included in the packaging, and they do suggest storing it as a coil, meaning less storage space is needed or it can be hung from a hook.


 

 

Better and Different - Safe and Efficient  

The CPAP Tube Cleaning Brush uses a specially designed silicone head created to clean every inch of the inside of the tube, removing harmful deposits from the space, keeping the hose cleaner with less effort. 
 

Easy to Use and Easy to Store 

This brush abandons the traditional wire design used by most tube brushes in favour of a tether-based design - a long cord that is fed through the length of the tube and pulled out the other end - making it easier to use. It’s also easier to pack and store, fitting into a smaller space with less effort.
 
Full instructions are included in the packet or you can download a copy by clicking on this link.
 

Important:-

This Silicone Hose Brush Cleaner is compatible with most tubing, but WILL NOT work with the small tubing on travel machines such as the Philips DreamStation or Resmed Air Mini.

CPAP and ventilator hoses should be cleaned at least once a week, as advised by all the machine manufacturers to keep them dust, mould and bacteria-free.  This is just as important whether or not a CPAP humidifier is used and if it's not clean and fresh an odour/unpleasant smell can end up being blown into the mask.

It seems to work fine but it is hard to tell how well it cleans.
It seems rather expensive for what it is. No idea on how long it lasts, as have only used it a few times.

The price isn't something we have control over due to having to import the new silicone brush from the USA, but we're hoping it will last a very long time 🤞

This is my first purchase of a hose brush Ė up until now, Iíve just followed the normal instructions when washing the long hose. It took me a couple of tries to get the hang of it, but now I really like it. I feel almost certainly that it cleans the hose more thoroughly. It is on the expensive side, though, so probably a luxury item.

Hose cleaning

I already have the brush style cleaner that is quite difficult to drag through and I worry what damage it is causing so I bought this one. It is easier to pull through, but still does get stuck on occasion. Iím not sure how thorough it cleans.

It's a faff to get this brush into a CPAP tube. And then it just goes through in one direction only. The old light blue rod and pad system could be wiggled about within the tube to foam the soap and work on set-in residue. And this new brush isn't cheap either. I still use my old rod and pads, and this has gone into my CPAP junk store. - the place where I keep expensive not quite useful CPAP stuff - along with my SoClean2. (Note we have removed the last sentence of your review which was yet another attempt at you having a pop at the Philips unfortunate CPAP recall, which is nothing whatsoever to do with the Silicone Brush which people will be interested in reading reviews for).

After a short struggle I got the hang of feeding the brush through the hose and it worked very well. Better than my previous method of trying to pour water through.

Overall, best tube brush so far
Monday, 6 September 2021  | 

I have (very carefully) used a much cheaper 'pipe cleaner' style brush to clean my Resmed hose for the past 4 years. No damage that I am aware of, but the brush is far too stiff to push through the right-angled hose connector, and too short to reach from the other end. This new silicone brush is an entirely different animal - pulled 'backwards' through the hose rather than jammed in forwards. It is therefore long enough to clean the entire length of the hose and critically, is flexible enough to pass through the end connector. It is more expensive, but is a lot safer and in my case more effective too (still assisted with some gentle washing up liquid).

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 charges that may be added in your own country.

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.

If you are purchasing on behalf of someone else who meets the above criteria, you must provide their name and address, and you will be prompted of this during the checkout process.

Customers living outside of the UK do not pay UK VAT charges, so please leave the the VAT Relief box ticked.  However, we cannot be held responsible for any additional costs incurred when the products reach your own country.

If you are purchasing with the intention of re-selling any products, you are liable to pay VAT on all products so you must untick the 'zero rate eligibility' box which will add VAT to your order.

Any products that our not eligible for zero rate VAT, will not display the VAT Declaration, and VAT will be added at checkout.
