Harold, if it isn't a leak then I'd suspect that the yeast solution is not
warm enough.  I keep a heating pad wrapped around my bottles at a
medium setting, and have noticed a major difference, even in the
summer.  Note that while the performance of the yeast is greatly
increased at the higher temperature, the solution may require more
frequent changing.

Jonathan in Maryland, where it has cooled down some, but we still
need rain.
