Simplus FF Mask leak
#1
I just started with the Simplus mask and only have one problem. I have a leak into my left eye which is not there until I turn to my left side. I think it is from the vent port, not from a mask leak. I use a Contour cpap pillow so that is not an issue. Help?

I found this problem too. With my mask it was caused by the swivel & hose moving into the air stream of the exhaust ports as I turned onto my side, deflecting the air stream towards my eye. My solution was to simply turn the swivel elbow about 90deg. until it was clear of the air stream. Seems to work for me. It depends on how you have routed the hose. Mine passes though a leather loop fixed to the wall above my head. click here.

I had this exact experience/solution with the Simplus.
