I have gon away for the fist time after fitting the housing. Second day on site & the new housing is leakin. A crack in the housing in the same place. Anyone know if there has been any faulty housings?

I got sick of replacing them housings. Is it the type with the clear filter? I went through three before i upgraded to the newer type with the blue lid on the filter. Advantage was I didn't use a filter at all just put lid on and it lasted until I sold the van. There is a retrofit kit which comes with the pistol type pump connector as well.
