Some comments here: viewtopic/t75500/CPAP-Guardian.html

I have not used it. The website makes the company seem a little dodgy. http://www.cpapguardian.com/
Tornado Working Principles

1. It produces disinfection gas mixed ozone and plasma by the internal generator.
2. The disinfection machine automatically releases disinfection gas and disinfects through the special tube into the interior of CPAP.
3. Disinfection gas permeates thoroughly the whole inside of CPAP, and achieves the total sterilization.
4. Ensure to keep the concentration of disinfection gas by the timer device, to guarantee the sterilization effect.

There seems to be a little more activity on the forum now so am bumping again.

I still hope someone has some experience with this.

Yes bad translation.

I am still looking for someone who has used this. I know it LOOKS like a toy but so do lots of other useful items.

I have never seen this particular item discussed here on the forum. Maybe someone has used it but just not mentioned it and/or maybe they no longer frequent the forum.
I have seen that other ozone disinfection machine (name eludes me at the moment) discussed though so a few people here using it.
My only concern about this sort of disinfection method...how do we confirm that it does what it says it does?
I mean, how do we test its validity?
For me to want or need to use some sort of ozone disinfection method (and at the prices that comes with this sort of item) I myself would want to be able to confirm that it performs as expected but I don't see any way to test it out. I would have to have a serious concern about bad germs to fork over the money in the first place so I, myself, would also have a serious concern that the bad bugs were eradicated with certainty.

Of course I don't have any way to test hot soapy water either so I guess we all have to take some sort of leap of faith that whatever we might do to clean/disinfect anything actually works.

But to answer your question Hawthorne....I don't remember ever seeing this particular unit mentioned so you may have a seriously limited pool of experience here to draw from.

So giving your thread another bump just in case it catches someone's eye.

Thanks for the ebay tip, Stormynights!

Thank you Pugsy. Yes, it does appear that there is no experience with this on the forum.
I will have to decide whether I believe their claims or not!

I don't have any actual experience with this machine, but I'm sold on the concept of ozone as a sanitizing agent. I've been using a SoClean for about 1 1/2 years and have been very happy with it. I also like that the SoClean was made in the US and has a very responsive customer service department.

I wonder what they mean by "plasma". Ionized gases can really deteriorate plastic parts. How would this product affect blower life over a period of five years?
