So my insurance dme provides the tanks that fit in the shoulder bag for my "portable" oxygen.
I seem to have a lot of issues with the Bonsai Valve regulators and need to have them replaced frequently.
Yes, I change out the washers. But there is not much more than that one can do to help them last longer.
So I wind up sitting at home until the other regulator gets delivered - usually some time late that day or night. Office visits to them have been canceled due to Covid but I used to just drive into town and replace them that way.
I was going to buy my own valve so I can still go out and about when this happens so I don't have to sit at home. But most of them are well over $100.
I have seen some smaller green valves that look comparable but without the pulse option for around $30. So long as its a G870 I think it would work.
My inogen took a dump so that is out. Its an older model and costs too much to repair.
I asked if I could have a back up regulator but they said if my insurance would even approve such a thing then they would charge me double cause I had 2 of them
Back in the OLD days when I was on 02 I bought two or three off of eBay.that are both pulse and continuous. Fairly cheap. Just make sure you have the option to return if they donít work. If you have a standard tank most out there will work fine. HAVE YOU CONSIDERED A LUNG TRANSPLANT ?
