Good point, I've never driven a car 24/7. Long haul truckers probably come pretty damn close to never turning off their engines, so maybe the failure rates of their water pumps would be more comparable.

As far as i know the metal housed versions only differ in the temperature they can deal with. Its not the plastic parts that wears out on a PC D5 its the bearing and that's common to all of them.

My 2012 USB D5 is still going strong with no signs of any problems.
