Leaks...mask or mouth ?
#1
Can anyone tell me if it's possible to differentiate mouth leaks from mask leaks on the SleepyHead leak graph ? Thanks

Yes. Mouth leaks have flattish tops or look less sharp. Mask leaks are usually sharp jumbles. Most masks don't just leak a constant like your opening mouth would. Masks tend to flutter.

That is the conclusion I have reached from looking at my data.

The red are mask leaks. The blue are mouth leaks.
