I don't think that the pillows are worn as they seem fairly firm and only been used for 7 weeks max, but will try new replacement pillows to see if that really is the problem.
Failure is NOT an option.
Are the pillows used in the UK and the ones used in Singapore the same size?
Sometimes when you wash the P10 pillows the inner seal will turn inside out. Look very closely at the pillows and make sure this did not happen.
Other issues are using the mask upside down, but that's not too likely as you would no doubt have noticed that.
Finally, they aren't supposed to last all that long. Resmed thinks you should replace them every 20 days. I don't agree, and I think while 7 weeks could be stretching it a little, it isn't likely that would cause them to fail to this degree.
Hi, everything is the same, size, supplier etc. It just seems so odd that there was such a marked improvement in the UK.
I think the problem is that the pillow I rest my head on is softer her in Singapore and as I sleep on my side I'm pushing the nasal pillows off with the head pillow.
I'm trying to use a firmer pillow so that my head doesn't sink into it and push the N pillows away from their position.
I'm hoping that this will cure the problem, I'll report back after a few nights on the efficacy of a firmer pillow.

Is the machine the same machine used in both Singapore and UK? Just asking because that might make a difference, or it might have had different settings.
I am a p10 user and it is all I have used. There has been a bit of a "learning" curve for me with them and side and stomach with face to side, sleeping. I seem to have the most leaks with them on my side. I used to wake with the sounds of the leaks, then I think i got to be sort of pleasantly lulled to sleep by the gentle wooshing (even worse, cause I didn't wake to adjust)
My pillows are under 3 weeks of use each so I can't say about longevity/seal.
The weird thing is, I note that when I have a deeper dog tired but refreshing sleep, they seem to have more leaks than when I have
a more fitful less refreshing sleep. I think in the former, my face relaxes more and gets me into more mask trouble, or I relax more in my frame and somehow hit the pillow differently.
I've just in the last couple days, taken away my name brand memory foam pillow so that I won't be tempted to sleep on my side proper. Instead I sleep in the "Dr. Falcon" sleep position. (you can google it) with only soft pillows I use to support shoulders. As such my face is against mattress and I've had much better success with ahi and not having large leaks. As such I blame the side sleep and pillow placement overall. Keep experimenting with the pillows etc.
You'll get there. You know you can have good luck with the p10.
