AirSense 10 Seal & Leaking
#1
AirSense 10 Seal & Leaking
The picture tells the story.   Oddly, the other night I had 6 hours of a 0% leak rate on a Bleep.

Going back to a P10, it's like a base leak rate shows up every night that only seems to improve if I remove the seal and clean it.  In the last graph, the seal was still damp from being wiped down from a mask wipe (maybe creating a better tank seal for all I know).

I am confused.

Edit: I forgot to say, I've tried a new water chamber, new seal, new hose (etc). This base leak rate resets and changes every time the water chamber is removed. And the part that's madding is that I can still get a 0% leak rate w/ a Bleep.

I have the same situation no matter what masks I use, how I clean the humidifier tub as well as checking for any distortion on the tub gasket.

My "zero" leak line is usually anywhere from 4.8 - 12.  Frustrating to say the least.

Make sure your tank in fully seated. Mine leaked if I don’t really push it in hard.

Yep, do that every night.  Plus I replaced the seal that connects the outlet hose recently.
