There is an 'acceptable' leak rate due to the exhaust of the mask but anything over that and you'ire not getting the best treatment you can.

Leak is averaging 28. AHI 1.8

AHI is good ... the goal is to be below 5
leak is not bad either ... the acceptable leak 24 L/min (below the red line at Resscan leak graph)
it tells you that leak was AT and BELOW 28 for the 95% of the time
now if your sleep quality is not affected by the leak ... its not a problem
it does help to use the mask fit feature or check the fit at the max pressure so it stay that way during the night
