P10 faulty leak system?

P10 faulty leak system?
Is there something wrong with my P10 mask or is this a known issue.

No matter what I do, it's like there is no way to get a solid seal. I even ran a test by setting the pap machine to a high pressure and purposely covering up the pillow holes with my fingers and the machine was still reading a 25 leak score. It's been like this since the mask was brand new and I just don't get it. Where is it leaking from if I'm covering both holes with my fingers? I know resmed doesn't measure intentional leaks as part of the score so I'm just confused. Do I have a faulty p10?

The mask setting is set to pillows on my aircurve device as well.

RE: P10 faulty leak system?
The last time I saw a post likr yours, the OP had the pillow on 180 degrees out. Make sure you have the big tab on the pillow aligned with the larger rectangular hole in the P10's base. If that isn't the problem, your exhaust mesh might be damaged.

Everything lines up as far as the rectangular hole and the p10 base. I probably received a faulty mask if the mesh is damaged? It performed like this since it was brand new I just never posted about it (I don't think) because I had alternative masks that I've been still using.
