- noise level
1. In addition to the expected white noise hum of the motor, there's a noise every 4-5 seconds that sounds kind of like something hard is being hit with a pick. I asked, but have had no response to the question if this is normal. To sleep with it (the point in my case), I'll need to drown out that noise somehow.
2. The cabinet was not assembled properly and plastic parts that should be inside are outside. The directions say don't open the cabinet under any circumstances. Again, I've had no response or acknowledgement of my email on these matters, sent to two different (apparently correct) addresses 5 days ago.
- it seems to deliver oxygen as advertised
- noise, shabby construction
It's not that quiet. I still here the thump of the pump and the constant drone of the machine running. My old rental unit was quieter.
- Quite efficient
