Perhaps I have been lucky - as with swirl motors, alternators and numerous other foibles which have been reported. As I'm aware of the fragility of TPMS valves, I only ever use my own foot pump for inflation and I'm very careful when attaching or removing the nozzle or pressure gauge. One culprit that hasn't been mentioned is the high-pressure jet wash which has dispatched at least one valve belonging to one of the members of this forum. These water jets also have the capability of inflicting tyre damage, so are best avoided.
