When I was rinsing out my Resp. Heated Tubing I saw some water come out of a small...small hole...pin hole size. I don't know how long it's been there. I've only had the machine for about 6 weeks and haven't noticed it before. Not sure how it came about. But I was wondering if there was anything that could be used to plus up the hole. Something like rubber cement maybe. Any suggestions?

I think I'll probably blame it on the cat even tho I haven't seen anyone bothering it and I keep it away during the day.

I ordered what I thought was a replacement hose from Amazon. And that's what I got. My problem is this...the hose that came with my dream machine had a (what I'd call a coupler) that attached my mask to the hose. This was in the end of the hose and wont come out. The new hose does not have this coupler and so the mask wont fit into it. Does anyone know where I can get a spare hose with the coupler or just the coupler. Or should the coupler (or attachment) I don't know what to call it come out.

First picture shows hose without coupler (new hose)
Second picture shows hose with coupler (old hose)
Third picture shows how the two pieces fit together.

Get a good grip on each side as close as possible, and wiggle it loose.

That coupler thing is part of the mask and it will come out of the long hose if you yank on it hard enough.
It's just stuck so far in the hose that it seems to be a permanent part of the hose but it isn't.
It will come out.
