Isn't this careless? Sure, accidents can happen, and of course there are 
manufacturing defects, but don't we have some responsibility to look after 
our things, and take some due care? Maybe that model of pump doesn't belong 
in a back pocket. Seems to me that multiple replacements keep the cost of 
pumps out-of-sight for many people. Not all of us have insurance that covers 
these pumps, and the cost can make or break our ability to get a pump in the 
first place.
