There's a lot of energy stored in the stretched membrane. Any small fault or weakness can develop in the material (cheap and cheerful production) the stress gets localised and the failure is catastrophic - it can't deflate gently.
After a while the membrane becomes stiff and is not as elastic as it used to be so it goes 'POP'
I must have paid a whole £1 for that pack of thirty !
