More Newb questions that I wasn't able to find through search...

How often do you change your tubing? The DME associated with my Drs office plans to send me new supplies every 3 months. Is this excessive?

Also, what's the best way to clean climate line tubing? I've been swishing mask bright and hot water through the tubing every few days, anything else I should be doing? Was thinking about soaking in warm sudsy water once in a while but not sure if that will damage the contacts.

Can climate line tubing go in the Hurricane dryer?

I'm on my second heated tube in 6.5 years. The first one lasted over 4 years and the only problem was that the rubber socket wore out and the mask kept slipping off.

Every day I just hang the tube over the towel rail. Once a week (or two) I flush it through with warm water then sluice hot soapy water through it, followed by a hot water rinse and hang it to dry.

The contacts are water resistant - you can happily immerse them, just make sure they're dry before reconnecting to the machine.

I'm not familiar with that dryer, but I've never used a dryer for any of my CPAP stuff. Wash in soapy water, rinse thoroughly and allow to air dry. Most of my stuff is years old.
