SoClean

We are an official distributor of the SoClean 2 Machine, which provides an opportunity for us to have the same disinfecting and sanitising process currently used in hospitals in our homes. 

All of our current trustees who have sleep disordered breathing actually now own a SoClean to use for their own CPAP or Non-Invasive Ventilators, and whilst it's not cheap, it is certainly worth considering saving up for if you are prone to respiratory infections. 

Reviews of the product are very high, and it is a convenient way of sanitising the machine as it can be set up to 'go and forget' every morning.


SoClean, the world's first automated CPAP Cleaner and Sanitiser is now here in the UK, giving an opportunity to have the same disinfecting and sanitising process currently used in hospitals in our homes.

SoClean kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria in the mask, hose and humidifier tank with no disassembly, no water and no chemicals. Thereby resulting in a safer, healthier way to breathe cleaner air.

The SoClean uses activated oxygen to eliminate any mould, bacteria, and viruses that may be lingering in the CPAP system, and is the same process used in hospital sanitising, water purification, hotel housekeeping and produce handling. To see a demonstration of how it works, see the video below:- 

Patients using a Resmed CPAP machine, please click on the 'Important Information' tab to read Resmed's latest statement.

Hope2Sleep Charity have trialled the SoClean on Philips Respironics, Resmed + Drive Devilbiss machines and so found it certainly appears to be doing its job well, in that the air in the machine feels much fresher than with regular sanitising.  In fact all our trustees who use CPAP or Ventilation actually now own a SoClean themselves.  It is easy to operate after the initial setup, and can be left connected for easy frequent use. We cleaned the facial oils off the mask as usual with the CPAP Wipes after putting into the SoClean, but this is personal choice, and apparently doesn't matter which way around it is done, according to the manufacturer, but it is better for the mask to be completely dry before placing into the SoClean.

The reviews are very positive, and especially for people with sinus issues and who are prone to repeated respiratory infections, nasal stuffiness and allergies.

Some of the Important Questions relating to the use of the SoClean are below, and there are somemore on the manufacturer's website:

 

Will the SoClean work with my heated hose?  

Yes, but you will need an adapter (as listed below).

 

What size mask fits the SoClean?

The chamber has a 5” X 5” opening and is 7” deep. Any mask under that size will fit. The Philips Respironics' FitLife Total Face Mask WILL NOT FIT inside the SoClean 2 Machine.
 

Does the SoClean get rid of facial oils from my mask?  

The SoClean will inhibit facial oil build-up, but it WILL NOT remove the oils as despite the name 'SoClean', this is primarily a sanitising machine!  For people who use CPAP Wipes these will still be needed or your preferred cleaning method will still be necessary).  Although the SoClean will sanitise and kill any viruses, bacteria or fungi on your mask some inert residue can be left behind.
 

What if I do not use a humidifier - can I still use SoClean? 

Yes the SoClean works with a humidifier or without out one. If you do not use a humidifier then the SoClean will sanitise the hose, mask, and headgear.
 

Are there any studies proving that the SoClean works?

Yes - you can download the reports here:  SoClean Lab Reports.
 

When and why do I need to use the SoClean Neutralising Prewash Solution? 

The pre-wash is intended to be used on all parts of the CPAP equipment (mask, hose and water chamber) BEFORE using the SoClean for the first time.  It is also important to use the pre-wash solution everytime you get a replacement new mask, hose or resevoir. 

The pre-wash is a fragrance-free hypoallergenic cleaning solution and it neutralises any pre-existing odours from detergents, and removes any residue from the manufacturing process.  (Many people find this SoClean Solution an amazing product even if they don't have a SoClean machine for soaking their masks, as it really does a fabulous job of cleaning).
 

Do I need to replace any SoClean parts? 

Yes - around every 6 months or so (depending on run times), the check valve and the filter need to be replaced.  These items are sold together in a kit.   The machine is programmed to tell you when these are needed.

 

Can I keep the SoClean permanently attached to my CPAP machine, or should I detach the SoClean each night and then plug in my CPAP hose?

You should not have to disconnect anything – that is the wonderful thing about the SoClean. Once you have it set up, you can leave it until you have to replace your CPAP hose. In some cases when used with a heated hose adapter, you may have to disconnect the water chamber to fill with water.

 

If necessary, can I position the SoClean on a shelf below my CPAP machine?

Preferably the SoClean cleaner and sanitiser should be level with your CPAP so the flow is easier, but you can put it on a shelf below your CPAP. You will have enough hose length. If you do put it below your CPAP unit, we ask that you periodically look at the check valve assembly to make sure there is no water in the clear tube, as this can harm you SoClean unit. If you do see water, you should replace the check valve assembly.

 

Can I use the SoClean CPAP Cleaner and Sanitiser with two CPAP machines?

The SoClean is designed to stay connected to one CPAP machine. You can clean two CPAP machines; however, you will need to disconnect and reconnect your CPAP equipment. This would be extremely cumbersome and not recommended.
 

If I wash my CPAP mask before putting it into the SoClean, does it have to be completely dry?

It is better to run the SoClean when your CPAP mask is completely dry.

 

Will I still need to replace the water in my CPAP reservoir while using the SoClean? Or should I just add water as needed?

It really is a personal decision; however, you can be assured that each time you run the SoClean, you are sanitising the water in the humidifier.
 

Video Instructions

​*In the unlikely event of you not being satisfied with the SoClean, returns are accepted only with the original packaging and in the same condition it was sent in.  Buyer is to pay return postage to us and the cost of the SoClean and any adapter will be reimbursed upon receipt.


ORDERING INFORMATION

The SoClean Machine is supplied with a UK plug and contains a cartridge which requires replacing approximately every 6 months, depending on usage.  The machine give a warning when this is necessary.  There is a complimentary small starter bottle of the SoClean Neutralising Pre-wash which needs to be used on all equipment when placing in in the SoClean machine for the first time.  (The solution itself is a marvellous product for cleaning the masks, even for people who don't use the SoClean Machine and larger bottles can be purchased on this link SoClean Neutralising Solution).

Most machines are compatible with the SoClean, but if in doubt please contact us.

 

ADDITIONAL ADAPTERS

If your CPAP or BiPAP machine DOES NOT have an attached heated humidifier then you DO NOT need to purchase an additional adapter unless you are using a Fisher & Paykel machine.

When placing your order we have added the most common machines as to whether an adapter is necessary, but the following should help too.

Philips Respironics' Machines:-

Only the new travel-sized DreamStation Go needs an adapter regardless of whether a humidifier is used.  All other Respironics' machines WITHOUT a humidifier, do not need an additional adapter.

An additional adapter is needed for all the Respironics' machines when used with a humidifer 

Drive Devilbiss Machines:-

No additional adapters are needed with any of these machines.

Resmed Machines:-

Only the new travel-sized Air Mini needs an adapter regardless of whether a humidifier or heated hose is used.  All other Resmed machines WITHOUT a humidifier, do not need an additional adapter.

An additional adapter is needed for the Resmed machines when used with a humidifer and an unheated hose, or a different adapter when used with a humidifier and a heated climateline hose (the relevant options are available in the shopping baskets when purchasing a SoClean machine or just an adapter).

Fisher & Paykel Machines:-

All Fisher & Paykel machines will require the appropriate adapter, whether or not a humidifier is used.

For any machines not listed above and you need help, please contact us and tell us which machine you are using, whether you have a humidifier and if you are using a heated hose.

Ordered this as just wanted to make sure the equipment is properly clean. I have tried lots of cleaning methods, but this is the easiest and most reliable.
Ever so easy to set up and use. It is a bit noise, but it is only 7 minutes, then you leave everything in for 2 hours. There is a little smell, not unpleasant, just strong, but once the equipment is out, I turn the PAP machine on, for 10 minutes and it 'flashes' the smell. Yes it is expensive, but definitely worth it.

SoClean Sanitiser
Wednesday, 29 July 2020  | 

I love love love the SoClean machine. It’s simplicity itself to use; Open lid, bung everything in the chamber, close lid. That’s it, nothing more, sorted. The only downside is the noise it makes for the first 7 mins of operation. It’s not loud but louder than I expected. All this is insignificant when you consider the benefits of having sanitized equipment on a daily basis without the usual daily faff. It’s like the difference between hand washing and getting your first washing machine. Bliss. The set-up was very straightforward although the machine comes with several adapters which I hadn’t been expecting and hadn’t noticed when unpacking and there is also extra equipment that wasn’t required for my res med AirSense 10 so I did a bit of head scratching when it didn’t fit anywhere. Basically I just needed to attach the long narrow hose to the new lid of the humidifier “New lid” came with SoClean. It’s preset to start at 10am and run for 7 mins for the first part of its cycle and then 2 hours of silence for the rest. These timings can easily be altered but if you really do have a phobia about technology just plug it in at midnight and your ready to go. There’s also a manual button if you just want to close the lid and press a button rather than having everything automated. You’ll need to allow 2hrs 7 mins before you can use your equipment. I know this is a very expensive piece of kit but it does save a lot of time and effort. I wouldn’t want to be without it now. A special Thank you to John at ‘Hope to Sleep’ for your help and advice.

very easy to you I would have given it 5stars but it does make a noise when you initiate the cleaning process until the light turns yellow.There is a slight smell must be the ‘cleaning gas’’. The whole process is easy one of the negetative points is that it is quite big and not suitable for taking on holiday so is restricted to home use only. If they produced a more compact machine which was easy to put in a small bag it would be perfect

I have been using this for a couple of weeks now.
My thoughts.
1. It is very noisy.
2. It is big, twice 5he size of my Cpap machine.
3. Easy to use.
4. It takes 15-20 minutes of running the cpap after cleaning to clear the ozone smell.

Thanks for taking the time to review the SoClean. Just to address point 3 that the SoClean has to be that size in order to accommodate all the masks, and sadly for people who use the total face FitLife Mask it will not fit inside it.

SoClean So Easy!
Friday, 14 June 2019  | 

Great help from John at Hope2Sleep to get the correct adapter, set up simple and now enjoying sanitised equipment every day. I leave the mask in the SoClean until I need it, no fear of anything creeping into the mask or tubing (yuck!). There is a smell, fresh air at the seaside, don’t notice it after the first few times of use. Great investment for a long term solution to keeping the kit clean and hygienic.

Tuesday, 28 May 2019  | 

I started using CPAP in early April this year, and one of the first anxieties I had – apart from looking like Dennis Hopper in Blue Velvet or the ever popular comparison to Darth Vader – was keeping the equipment clean and not getting a chest infection. Of course, I also worried about comfort and my NHS supply mask is not very comfortable but I felt I had to persevere with it and give it a chance. So rather than buy a new mask straight away I decided to invest in keeping the one I did have ultra clean first. The service from Hope2Sleep was super fast and the machine arrived just a couple of days after ordering. The So Clean machine is so easy to set up, I have a ResMed AirSense 10 Elite with a humidifier so I also needed the adapter, but the instructions couldn't be simpler to follow and it was up and running in no time. I did wait until I had time on a Saturday to wash all the equipment as recommended in the SoClean solution first. So now, I just wipe the mask with the wipes (bought from Hope2Sleep as well) and pop it in the machine everyday. Once I week I clean the rest of the equipment and clean the hose thoroughly around once a month. It even sanitises the water in the humidifier – keeping is crystal clean. The ozone smell is quite strong at first but I run the mask fit for a minute or two before putting it on at night and the faint smell is quite reminiscent of being at the edge of the ocean or the clean smell after heavy rain, so I have got used to it. After a minute or so that disappears anyway and I always feel confident that the equipment is fully sanitised.

7 months and no bronchitis
Monday, 18 March 2019  | 

I have had the CPAP SoClean for 7 months now and I have not had bronchitis. Being very vunerable I wanted to make sure that I was not re-infecting myself because the CPAP was recycling my own germs. Of course I cannot for sure say that the SoClean has made the difference but it must be helping. I beleive but I cannot ....... I would have normally had at least two bouts by now.

ORDERS

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 3 pm 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.   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.

Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before purchase.  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.  


RETURNS

Masks and most products cannot be exchanged, unless faulty, due to health and hygiene issues, in accordance with the Consumer Contracts Regulations, (as stated in our 'Terms and Conditions' ) and where you will find our return address, so if you are unsure about any product please contact us BEFORE purchase or BEFORE opening a sealed packet.

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.

 

VAT DECLARATION/INFORMATION

Most of the products we sell are eligible for Zero Rated VAT in the UK and Europe, and in order to qualify, you should meet the criteria for the following HMRC VAT Declaration:-

  1. You or the person you are purchasing on behalf of have "a condition which the medical profession treats as a chronic sickness," (sleep apnoea and sleep disordered breathing, which require therapy, are such conditions).
     
  2. "The goods or services are for the personal or domestic use of the customer."

We cannot advise on individual cases, but more information can be found on HMRC’s website under notice 701/7 on the following link  https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/vat-notice-7017-vat-reliefs-for-disabled-people

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 Europe do not pay UK VAT charges, so please leave the the 'zero rate eligibility' 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.

It is very important to use the SoClean Neutralising Pre-wash Solution the first time any CPAP mask or part is sanitised with the SoClean.

For safety with the use of ozone, you must follow the instructions carefully, and it is especially important to leave the mask inside the SoClean for a minimum of 2 hours after sanitising, before wearing the mask.  Ideally, sanitisation would be carried out in a morning or several hours before bedtime.

 

RESMED MACHINE USERS ONLY:-

On the 8th January 2020 Resmed released a statement saying that if any damage is caused to a Resmed CPAP machine by the use of an ozone sanitiser they will not honour the warranty.  This only affects a new CPAP machine purchased after the 1st February 2020.   Resmed are not stating people should not use an ozone machine and say the choice is for the patient to decide, but in the unlikely event of any damage occuring the warranty will be void.

We are puzzled by this statement and no other manufacturer has released one, and over the years and 100's of customers purchasing the SoClean, Hope2Sleep Charity have never come across any customer reporting damage to a CPAP machine after using the SoClean.  We are aware of many cheap chinese ozone cleaners invading the market and wonder if these have caused the problems, and furthermore, would never recommend one of these cheaper alternatives that may not have had the rigorous testing carried out on them - or indeed may not have had the relevant safety checks.  You can download Resmed's statement by clicking here.  Whilst we have no evidence ourselves of a problem, we have to report this in fairness to everyone and cannot be held responsible if any damage did happen to occur.

SoClean themselves have also made a statement in response to Resmed's which we have copied word for word from their website as of today's date (25th April 2020):-

ResMed has recently raised concerns about the use of ozone devices with ResMed CPAP AirSense™ 10 devices, indicating that increased motor noise is the result of using ozone devices with the ResMed AirSense™ 10 device. SoClean stands by its product and are so confident with its performance that we are issuing a warranty Policy to cover AirSense™ 10 devices for claims of increased motor noise when used with a SoClean device, as long as the ResMed device is still within the two year warranty period.  The details of that Policy are below. Simply put, we want to make it clear to our resellers and SoClean customers that using a SoClean device will result in no practical change to your two year warranty on your AirSense™ 10. Effective May 1st, 2020, for ResMed AirSense™ 10 units, if a ResMed customer is no longer able to submit a warranty claim for increased noise due to use with a SoClean device, SoClean will cover the costs of repair.
