Lumin Bullet Product Review: 3B Medical’s CPAP Hose Sanitizer
What is the Lumin Bullet?
The Lumin Bullet is the best CPAP hose cleaner on the market!
When 3B Medical released their Lumin CPAP Mask and Accessories Cleaner, customers complained about the CPAP cleaner’s inability to clean the inside of CPAP hoses. Cleaning the inside of CPAP tubing is a pain. Rinsing with hot water and vinegar gets the job done, but you must wait until the hose is completely dry before you can use it again. Ozone CPAP cleaners can clean the inside of CPAP tubing, but ozone is a harmful gas, and using your tubing can be unsafe if cleaned incorrectly.
The Lumin Bullet, carefully designed by the team at 3B medical, solves all of the frustrations associated with cleaning the inside of CPAP tubing. The revolutionary Lumin Bullet uses no soap, water, or chemicals to clean the inside of CPAP tubing. There is also no waiting period required when using the Lumin Bullet. In under 60 seconds, your CPAP tubing will be sanitized and ready to use.
Why is it important to clean your CPAP equipment?
CPAP machines are one of the most effective and reliable methods of treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. With nightly CPAP use, patients will see a vast increase in both their quality of life and quality of sleep.
Consistently using your CPAP equipment is only the first step to receiving safe and effective therapy for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The second step is to regularly clean your CPAP accessories. The moist environment in your CPAP mask and hose is the perfect breeding ground for harmful bacteria. Not cleaning your supplies results in the formation of biofilm buildup on the inside of your tubing, mask, and humidifier. Regularly breathing in the bacteria in the biofilm increases the risk of illness and infection. For peace of mind and safety, it is important to frequently use CPAP cleaners like the Lumin Bullet for disinfection.
How does the Lumin Bullet work?
If the Lumin Bullet uses no soap, water, or chemicals, you might be wondering how in the world it cleans your CPAP tubing? The answer is UV technology. The Lumin Bullet quickly and effectively cleans the inside of CPAP hoses using ultraviolet light. The UVC light is activated by a small magnetic sanitizing probe placed inside the tubing.
The following video from 3B Medical provides more specifics on using and operating the Lumin Bullet CPAP hose cleaner.
What customers are saying about the Lumin Bullet?
Cleaning in under 60 seconds? No chemicals and soap? No drying time? Ultraviolet Light? All of these features sound great, but the most important question is – does the Lumin Bullet really work?
Don’t take our word for it – Check out the following customer reviews to get a sense of what Lumin Bullet customers are saying about the product:
Very easy to use. Better than chemical disinfectant cleaners that can leave a disturbing odor in the tubes – David S.
The Bullet is a must to clean CPAP hoses. – Geraldine V.
What CPAP hoses is the Lumin Bullet compatible with?
The Lumin Bullet is compatible with almost every type of standard and heated CPAP hose. The only hoses that the Lumin Bullet is not compatible with are the following:
- ResMed ClimateLineAir Oxy Heated Tube for AirSense 10 and AirCurve 10 Machines
- ClimateLine Tubing for S9 and H5i Climate Control System
- ClimateLineAir Heated Tube for AirSense 10 and AirCurve 10 Machines
- DreamStation Go 12mm Micro Tubing
The thin design and 90-degree turn at the ends of these specific types of CPAP tubing make it difficult for the Lumin Bullet’s magnetic probe to enter and navigate through the tubing. Visit our tubing category page for a complete list of the CPAP tubing available for purchase on the Health Sqyre website.
How to charge the Lumin Bullet:
The Lumin Bullet has a rechargeable battery. To charge the battery, a USB charging cord is included with purchase of the product. One charge of the battery lasts for almost 30 cleaning cycles.
How much does it cost?
The Lumin Bullet costs $99.00. If bought with the Lumin CPAP Mask and Accessories Cleaner ($249.00) for a complete 3B Medical cleaning set, the total cost is $348.00. Please refer to our Cleaning Comparison Guide for a complete cost comparison of this price relative to other CPAP cleaning products.
