With so many on the market, they are going to be hard to sell until you get great at making them. Even for cheap, there are a lot of cheap options.

I would suspect a leak as well. I can't figure out why it would do this because of a leak but mine did exactly that last time I did have one. I guess something would reseal/unseal or something. ...
