if you havent used it for a longtime it may have dried out inside there is a seal that sucks up the air and water, it it drys out after use ( 1 year + ) it shrinks to flx it get a bottle cut a small hole in the lid put in a straw and squirt water back into the tap end till its full of water then try it again,
this may take several goes to resoak the seal
