You will need to change the slim tubes and domes every three months or when they become stiff, or discolored. You should wipe the domes daily with a damp cloth. You should also clean the slim tubes periodically, with the cleaning pin provided, when you begin to notice debris in and around the tubes.
To clean the slim tubes and domes:
- Remove the slim tube from the hearing instrument by holding the slim tube in one hand and the hearing instrument in the other hand.
- Gently turn the hearing instrument until it detaches from the slim tube.
- Use a damp cloth to clean the outside of the slim tube and the dome.
- Using the black cleaning pin provided in the kit, gently insert the cleaning pin where the slim tube attaches to the hearing instrument and gently remove any debris that may have accumulated in the tube. Repeat this step for the other side as well.
NOTE: The slim tubes and domes should never be rinsed or submerged in water as water drops may become lodged in the tube, block sound or damage the electrical components of the hearing instrument.
