How much of the time are we talking about? Short periods of time or half the night?

Yes, tape the mouth shut with a tape that offers enough snugness to remind the mouth to stay closed but easy enough to open the mouth (like with a big yawn) or for removal.
When talking about mouth breathing and chin straps and thinking about taping........I always felt it was best to evaluate just how bad the leak is and then discuss options.
My mouth doesn't stay shut all the time. I know this because I wake up in the middle of the night with mouth open and dry but when I go look at the reports there may be a good size leak at that time and they may be minimal indications that I was mouth breathing or not leaking at all. One night I might have some leaks but sleep right through them and see the next day that I had 10 minutes in large leak but the rest of the night the leaks , while ugly, were well within the machines ability to compensate for the leaks. I don't wake up with the leaks...I sleep right through them and I am not going to worry one second about a few minutes here and there where the leak was less than perfect.
