Coax splitter problems

What can cause a coax splitter to go bad? I've narrowed our connection problems down to this cause, but can't figure out what's causing the cause...

Cable and Internet work fine as soon as you replace the splitter. Within a day or so, though, the problem is back. I know it's the splitter because a) I've gone through three of them now, and b) everything works fine FOR GOOD if you just join the coax from the street to an individual line using a female to female splitter. Problems only arise again when you try to split the signal for use with more than one device (say a TV and a cable modem). Any ideas?
