The platonic ideal of soap dispensers

My hand soap dispensers suck.

For years I used disposable hand soap dispensers--those single use bottles of hand soap you can buy. Usually I would buy one, then refill it until it started to get too grungy or worn out, then start over.
Then I decided to be a grown-up and bought a couple of nice decorative soap dispensers, one for the bathroom and one for the kitchen. The problem? I have since bought at least six replacement soap dispensers because the nice looking ones all break! These are the two I am using these days.
They are both Umbra. The red one leaks and leaves a growing gross puddle of gunk on the counter. The green one is a foaming pump and it has recently stopped foaming or pumping at all. The problem with previous ones usually had to do with the pump part pooping out.
Help me find a durable hand soap dispenser. I'd rather not spend a fortune, but durability is the most important factor here, more important than looks or price. I have no preference for foaming or non-foaming.
