Have you asked your PD nurse?

When I was on vacation for 7 weeks I asked about that.  I was told that they had a 2 foot one and a 4 foot one.  So I order a 16 foot drain line extension and moved the Cycler closer to the bed and it worked out for me.  Hope this helps.

There is a Liberty cassette available with a 20 ft line instead of the normal 10 ft.

Two differences from the default 10 ft cassette.

1. The drain line is integrated with the cassette, though you can still connect an extension.  I found this was actually a convenience - one less connection to make.

2. The 20ft cassettes allows a single connection.  If you want to be able to disconnect and reconnect, you need a multi connect set (adapter with multiple lines).

When I was on PD, I used the 20ft line as I had plenty of residual function back then and the 20ft allowed me to get to the toilet.

When I was using the Baxter system, I had a 20 foot patient line. It gave me all the room I needed to move around the bedroom and loft of my house.

With placing my machine in my living room I can get to my bedroom, the bath room, the computer room, the kitchen and out the front door.  (In case the dog demands to go out after I hook up.)  My drain line goes to the toilet.  I just can't get to the den & dining area and that's no big deal.
