The Check Valve prevents water in the CPAP humidifier water chamber from backing up into the SoClean machine. If at any time water can be seen in the clear tube (Check Valve), replace immediately. It should be replaced every 6 months or the SoClean display shows the "Order Filter Kit" message.
Replacing The Check Valve Assembly

- After one side of the tubing has been disconnected from the Check Valve, repeat step A to disconnect the tubing from the other side.
The direction of your new Check Valve is critical. your SoClean will not work if it is installed facing the wrong direction. The end of your new Check Valve has a label with two arrows that should be positioned away from your SoClean and closest to your CPAP machine.
