The unit is very robust and should last for many, many years. Using the trough is a much better leveler than any being sold for that purpose.
Another problem I've had in the past, probably more with the metal than the plastic ones, but to some degree with all: Where the hose screws into the Little Giant, after it's there a year or two it basically welds itself in!! Not sure if this is due to mineral deposits from my water, or what, but even if the float valve is fine, if the hose breaks, I can't unscrew the hose from the float valve and end up discarding a perfectly good float valve because I can't get the bad hose unscrewed! The last few valves that I've put in, I used that thin white thread tape/film on the connection, which hopefully with prevent that problem. So far I haven't had to try and unscrew any of those...
This is a good valve, well made, and versitile to mount. I'd love it if the manufacturer made a high temp version at about 2/3rd the size. Would also like the option to buy stainless steel hardware, rather than the zinc plated (?) mounts and bolts supplied... I nickel plated mine to keep them from corroding into the monitored bath.
Only downside to my application is that the water hose stands up and looks a little ugly. Recommend getting a ninety degree attachment for the hose. Otherwise, its a perfect filler for a fountain.
