Getting a machine advice
RE: Getting a machine advice
Flat tops on the leak chart, vs jagged peaks indicating a 'burping of the seal. Also look at the detailed flow rate. In general the area above zero line should equal that below the line. If below the line is less it usually indicates mouth breathing

RE: Getting a machine advice
Getting a lot of large leaks the last few nights.  Nothing has really changed that I know of.  (Same mask, same setup, etc.)

Any idea what is causing the leaks or recommendations to try?  Been using the mask for about 1.5 months now.  I gave the whole setup a really good cleaning yesterday to see if that would help, it didn't.

I think your jaw is relaxing and allowing some mouth leaks.
