Expelled air leaking more and more - RESMED Activa

Expelled air leaking more and more - RESMED Activa
Wierd expelled air leaking.   I use a Remed Activa LT Nasal.   It has a T bar.    I have a primary mask and backup mask.    Primary mask started this stuff a couple of months ago so I switched to backup.   Now backup is doing it.

It seems as though the expelled air has doubled or more.   The volume and amount seems like it has gone up exponentially but I have no way to measure exactly.
I've switched out cushions, headgear, and nose piece.   Same result and way too much air coming out nose.

Any help as I am ready to switch masks completely.   I have all kinds of cushions and stuff for this Activa and really don't want to switch.

What does the leak graph look like? You may be ready to update to OSCAR as well.

We can't really give anything other than guesses without some data.

RE: Expelled air leaking more and more - RESMED Activa
I haven't looked at that yet.   Engineering son says it makes sense that the holes would get bigger and leak more air if constantly under pressure.   After I changed out nose piece I really thought that would fix it.   Nope.   I'll try and look at that data and post it if I can find where something happened.
