Part Number: SC1200Brand: 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:-
Hope2Sleep have trialled the SoClean on Respironics, Resmed + 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 viral infections, nasal stuffiness and allergies.
Some of the Important Questions relating to the use of the SoClean are below, and there are more on the manufacturer's website:-
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. The SoClean Neutralising Solution 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).
Most machines are compatible with the SoClean, but if you want to check then please refer to the manufacturer's website on this link https://www.soclean.com/support/soclean-support/soclean-compatibility/
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 the Respironics' machines when used with a humidifer and an unheated hose, or a different adapter when used with a humidifier and a heated hose (the relevant options are available in the shopping baskets when purchasing a SoClean machine or just an adapter).
Drive Devilbiss Machines:-
No additional adapters are needed with any of these 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.
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, donít notice it after the first few times of use. Great investment for a long term solution to keeping the kit clean and hygienic.

I started using CPAP in early April this year, and one of the first anxieties I had Ė apart from looking like Dennis Hopper in Blue Velvet or the ever popular comparison to Darth Vader Ė†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 Ė 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.

Thank you for such a detailed review Karen, which is sure to help other people, and good to hear you're happy with the SoClean.
a useful tool to ensure that your cpap machine stays germ free and gives you peace of mind if you have respiratory problems
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.
It solves a problem of hygiene. Effective and trustworthy beside its price
Delighted with purchaseDelivered in less than 24hrs from orderingWould highly recommend.
This machine cuts down the frequency of hand-washing the CPAP equipment and does a good job of sanitising the hose, mask and headgear.I use a CPAP without a humidifier so I did not need an adapter. I would recommend thoroughly reading the instructions before making any modifications to parts of the device and setting it up as it varies by manufacturer.The O3 (ozone), produced has a noticeable odour but does a great cleaning job. The smell quickly dissipates when the CPAP is turned back on. Highly recommended accessory for CPAP machines.
I am still getting used to it and how to use it. I am following the instructions.

If you're struggling at all you can find many YouTube videos for using the SoClean with different machines. A Google search should help.
I was fed up with the stinkiness from my CPAP machine it was unbearable once I had to use a humidifier. So invested in the SoClean - itís a life changer as t also cleans the water in humidifier. I know fill up the humidifier before I put the mask in to clean and by bedtime itís now a pleasure to put on as all the stinkiness has gone. Itís a life changer!Well worth the investment. I forgot to put it in to clean one morning and when I used it, it was stinky again, so it has proved how well it works
Getting information from the manufacturer is like talking to a brick wall.
Sorry to hear of your experience and wonder if it's the USA manufacturer you've been trying to speak with. The UK distributer is very helpful we've found.

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.

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.
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.
