Bad Luck With Snails

I have had 4 snails all but 1 died.

But the one that is still alive I have only had since December. It seems after a few months all my snails die. I have had a snail die in my betta tank which all the levels are normal. But in my 55 gallon I have had 3 die and I do have a hard time keeping the nitrates down. It seems I'll get them down and then boom! they are back up. I do weekly water changes on it. I have not had any problems with fish dying.

What could be the reason behind my snails all dying?

What kind of snails? I'm not sure about all snails but I know that Nerite snails are somewhat sensitive to high nitrate levels.

They were all mystery snails.
