Heated Tube is a Miracle!

I LOVE this heated tube! Used with the heated humidifier, I experience ZERO rainout! With my former regular tube, moisture condensing in the tube and in the mask was a huge problem, waking me up many times during the night. With the heated tube, I never have water condensation in the tube---as long as I do not cover the tube, or put it under the blankets with me.
And do NOT put those nice, fuzzy covers made for regular tubes on the heated tube. I love how those soft covers made the hose feel nice if the hose came in contact with me during the night---but using it on the heated tube caused wetness to build up inside the tube. Another plus is that the heated tube delivers warm air up to the mask, so breathing for me is easier when the room air is cold.
The real deal

I have a Philips System One CPAP and I needed a replacement hose. When I searched online for a replacement, I mostly found "compatible" hoses, not the actual brand. Other sites would list the hose as the actual part in the title, and then state that it was "compatible" buried in the description. This one is the exact hose that came with my machine. There were a few other sites that had the actual part as well, but it was the cheapest here, and 1/2 the cost of the outfit that supplied my CPAP. Since I have a large deductible on my insurance I was better off getting it online.
The delivery was fast. It was undamaged. Great service.
