High leaks

High leaks
Something has changed and I can't figure it out.  I have been happily using the F20 AirTouch, low leaks,great ahi.  Then disaster.  I have changed my cushion, changed my chin strap, changed my head gear.  Still no improvement.  The only thing left is the F20 frame which I will get hopefully Friday.  Not sure where to go from here.

RE: High leaks
Have you checked your hose for leaks? I had a sudden hose leak last month, the hose had ruptured near the device connector, only figured it out because of the eventual noise.

RE: High leaks
Thanks Dawnstar for the idea. The hose is new but I will check. What I should have stated is that I can't keep a sealon the cushion. I haven't had this problem in a long time. New cushion. That is why I am hoping it is the frame out of whack. I am already looking at other full face masks.
