Fuel Lift Pump

The question that seems to popup a lot is whether or not to get a lift pump.  What happens if the lift pump fails, am I stuck?  Can I get filters anywhere or is it online order only? Why spend the money? How long will the pump last before it needs to be replaced?  Do I need a sump installed on my tank if I get a lift pump?
