Very difficult to get the clear cover off to clean out the filter, which has to be done often if you pump fresh-pressed fruit juice, or if you need to clean it before sanitizing. There is a special wrench that allows you to get a grip on the cover, but there is no corresponding way to get leverage on the body. Inevitably you end up applying stress to the barb, simply because there is no other way, and eventually this will cause it to break where the barb joins the base.
This should be redesigned to include some easy way to grip the housing, or to accommodate a wrench or other tool; and the base of the barb should be reinforced with gussets.
I've replaced mine twice so far. I get 3 or 4 seasons out of one if I'm really careful.
