Resmed 11 Water Chamber Capacity Increaser

Post by pooolboy » Mon Jun 03, 2024 3:04 pm

My Resmed 11 water chamber hits the min. mark and I wake up too early like clockwork. Have tried all settings. No joy. Some time ago I thought I saw a field expedient solution to increasing the water chamber capacity. I can't find it again and REALLY want to find it! Thanks.

1. What is your humidifier setting?

2. What are your pressure settings?

3. What is your leak level?

ClearSpring costs a couple hundred bucks and is the normal solution.

Drill a hole and put a gerbil bottle on the side, hillbilly solution.

If you have leaking going on then that will blow through your water... the 11 series has a known leak issue with the heated hose where it joins the machine... if you pull it sideways it can crack open and leak. The work around is to face it away from you so the hose comes out toward you like it should have been designed.

I like my humidifier on max/max so I wake up after 7 hours and rinse/refill it... need to pee then anyway.

If you’re at all handy this will take 20 mins. Just have a spare humidifier tank handy.
