When I can afford it I'd like to get New machine with heated tube

If the heated tube works with your machine I would try that.  They also make covers for your tubing which may help some.  I think the heated tube may be your answer.  Keep us posted.

Richard, some folks just use the humidifier in a Passover mode.  They just don't turn it on, but let the air pick up moisture without heat.

Hi Richard,  I don't bother with a humidifier.  Someone on the forum suggested not using it and I'm a lot less congested without it.  A good AHI is under 5.  I use the Wisp and have been since it came out.  I think it's a great mask.

Glad to hear it's working, Richard.

Richard, as a fellow member of the forum and on behalf of The SleepGuide Crew I would like to welcome you to SleepGuide.  We range from the yet to be diagnosed and newbie to those on the machine for many years.  I have logged 3 1/2 years.  Please feel free to start a new discussion or post to one in progress- you never know when your comments will help someone else.  Some threads are a little political right now, but that just depends on who is around and posting.  If I can be of any help navigating the site, feel free to contact me.

Mary Z.
