RE: Hello! New here, leak question
As you are able to move minimum pressure closer to what you median pressure is, the FL should lessen. I would stay with current setting for a couple weeks and watch your numbers.

Link to a Thread about FL:

You may want to bring the max setting of 20 down to 15.

I have attached a link to the "Beginners Guide to SleepyHead". A lot of good information.

Hi, OpalRose. I am confused by what you mean by "medium pressure". Is that another term for "median", or do you mean the average/mean pressure?

Sorry for the confusion...I meant median.
Usually I suggest that a minimum pressure setting be 2cm below the 90% pressure which usually ends up being very close to the median pressure, or just set it at the med pressure.
amshy723's Med pressure is 10.46, so my thoughts are that the Min setting shouldn't be below that.

This blog by RobySue explains the differences much better than I can.
