Question Replacing mask cushion - when ?
How often should one replace their mask cushion.

Mine is 1550 hours old/young now. As I have need to tighten the straps up slightly, does that mean its time to replace the silicone cushion on my full face mask

Happy sleeping

RE: Replacing mask cushion - when ?
There is no set rules when to change mask cushions. Everyone face is different for some it can wear out quicker . For Americans it depend on their insurance cover. Usually I replace mask cushion 4/6 months or sooner if leak start to go higher than average. btw buying on ebay and Supplier #2 (even adding shipping costs) is much cheaper than local prices.
