Durable high pressure hoses and fittings

Hi, I am having a terrible time with my high pressure fittings and hoses. In the passed 6 months I've replaced 2 high pressure quick disconnects that I bought from jackssmallengines.com. Also, two of the high pressure hoses (stainless 304) that I got from mcmastercar have sprung leaks during the last two runtimes.
I run the watermaker about once every two weeks and I flush it with fresh water after every use. Before flushing I take the pre-filters out and run fresh water for about two minutes. Stainless CAT pump is still doing good.

Does anyone have a source for more reliable quick disconnects to NPT female or male, 1/4" and 3/8", as well as the same size high pressure hoses with 1/4" or 3/8" NPT threads.
