TheLionSleeps I thought was the OP and his profile lists 7.5 to 10.

RE: Mask Headgear Tightness
My average leak rate prior to using liners was 2.39 and has now risen to 8.05 (figures taken from SleepyHead) but I'm not concerned because they're still well within limits.

Although my max pressure has been left at 20 according to SleepyHead I only reached 15.7 max since I started using the liners, max was 17.0 in the month before I started using the liners.
