So this seems weird to me.......I am out of both bags and wafers (I use 2 pc convex system) so I called Byram to place an order (I'm totally out, put my last set on Monday.....living on the edge, praying for no leaks). Anyways, they said I have to wait until the 27th to order if I want my insurance to cover it or I had to pay out of pocket. So I ordered to minumum and paid for it myself. After getting a little more clarification about what my insurance will cover per month they said "4 boxes of wafers (which is 20 total) and 1 box of bags (which is 10 total)". Does that make sense to anyone. I mean I can make 10 last a month if I don't have alot of leaks, but why would they supply 20 of one and only 10 of the other when they are used together. I guess if i had to I could rinse out the bags and just change the wafers. I wouldn't go through 20 wafers a month anyway, but if my insurance covers it maybe I'll start a stock pile for a rainy day.
