When it comes to expensive equipment and medical devices, there’s nothing more important than making sure it comes with a helpful warranty. Accidents can happen, which could leave you footing the bill for a device that costs hundreds of dollars for one part alone! That’s why so many of these life-saving or enhancing devices come with multiple year warranties to give you peace of mind.
While warranties may help with replacements, it’s devices like the Sleep8 Ozone Cleaner that will actually be used to support your CPAPs’ accessories and components regularly. Keeping you safe and keeping your equipment free from potentially-harmful bacteria. But there are reports that some CPAP, Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, device companies have been specifically mentioning that Ozone damage is not covered on their warranties.
Unfortunately, this is actually true, but it doesn’t exactly reflect how Ozone Cleaners like Sleep8 interact with your CPAP system. Yes, there are a couple of manufacturers that have stated that Ozone damage is not covered by their devices’ warranty. However, there are a number of factors that not only affect how the Ozone is interacting with your CPAP device, but which parts are actually being sanitized in the first place. So before you run to check your warranty card’s current information, let’s discuss what you’re most likely going to read.
What Is Covered Under The Warranty?
The many around the world that have to use CPAP devices are more than familiar with its components. While there is one central CPAP device, there are many other pieces that allow you to use it, and every one of them needs some form of cleaning. For most CPAP warranties, each individual piece of the device could have a different length of time for its coverage. Though some warranties will not cover Ozone damage on any piece, it’s often only the CPAP device itself that is covered for a significant amount of time. That means your tubes, masks and other accessories are only covered for a short period of time.
Why is that relevant? Because the Sleep8 doesn’t clean the CPAP device, only the tubing and masks! The Sleep8 Ozone Cleaner isn’t meant to clean your CPAP console or electronics, but instead is designed to support your tubing and masks with the power of “activated oxygen”, otherwise known as Ozone.
How The Sleep8 System Affects Your CPAP Device
As Ozone Cleaners like Sleep8 have become more prominent in the industry, there have been a number of articles and theories about how they interact with the machines they’re designed to sanitize. Some have reported damage to their CPAP devices, and have thus used that as a reason to exclude Ozone from their warranties.
This is a big problem for other well known Ozone cleaners on the market, some of which do expose the central CPAP device to ozone. Those other devices may potentially void your CPAP warranty.
Fortunately, this is not a problem for Sleep8 users!
A Sleep8 Ozone Cleaner user simply places the CPAP machine’s mask and tubing inside the convenient bag, attaches it to the Sleep8 device, and then begins the cleaning process at the touch of a button.
That’s it! At no point will the Sleep8 interact with the CPAP device, and thus there is no feasible risk of it affecting that part of the warranty.
A Sanitized System and An Intact Warranty!
There are a few important things to note about the specificities of your CPAP device’s warranty. While these kinds of restrictions and regulations are appearing on only a few warranties, it’s important to be up-to-date on what exactly is included in your CPAP device’s warranty. The most important details of all are those that have to do with your health and safety, so ensure that those are your top priority when maintaining your device and monitoring its cleanliness.
However, it’s also important to take into account that the Sleep8 Ozone Cleaner was also designed in a way that prioritizes your health and safety. Simply put, Ozone is an efficient way of eliminating harmful irritants and bacteria that may otherwise gather on the accessories of your CPAP device. With just one hour of use, the Sleep8 can clean your tubing and mask at the touch of a button.
When it comes to your health, cleanliness and safety are key. With its own warranty, you can rest easy knowing that the Sleep8 Ozone Cleaner is keeping your CPAP masks, tubing and sanitized and free from bacteria.
