Except for the plastic valve on the metal connector, the quality seems pretty decent for a pump costing less than $15. However, the manufacturer of this low cost pump naturally omitted some useful features. If you use sufficient care attaching the connector to a tube, you'll probably be alright. I haven't had any problems thus far. If the plastic value eventually breaks, it'll probably be possible to replace the whole hose including the valve as the hose apparently * screws into the base of the pump. However, replacing just the hose with the valve will likely cost you as much or more than a brand new pump, but then you still have the problem of a marginal valve. ;)
* I have NOT attempted to unscrew the hose from the base to verify this possibility, though.
