Every alternate pump mounted filter is still bound for inevitable clogging. Remember the pump fails due to strain on the pump caused by unabated filter restriction. Purging dislodges/mitigates the restriction every time the ignition switch is killed. Eventually the pump must be unseated and the contaminated fuel discarded, re-seated and ready for trouble free use until the next interval. Your stock pump/system is always happy. With the ongoing purge cycles no pump hernias develop, as long as you purge the buildup as needed.
Every other contingency requires mods, expense, and similar maintenance intervals, while failing to actively mitigate the culprit.
The purge module is the only mod that holds any potential of permanently solving the problem in a way that eliminates the need for further expense.
I had one on my 990 Adventure, and it worked as described, highly recommended.
