HepVo question

Hey there!

Recently noticed a fairly significant leak at (best I can determine) at the inlet 90 to the in-line HepVo trap. Do any of you know if any 1" x 1/4" 90 can work in this situation? The folks at HepVo are kinda hard to get up with. And I don't see anywhere on the site where one-off adapters and such can be purchased.

Thanks in advance!

Not sure about the elbow, but the entire assy isn't much from Amazon.

Have you taken it apart to see if there's any pieces you can replace locally, like a gasket?

If you decode the barcode in your picture it says "your leak is probably here "
OR the sink attachment looks cross threaded
But seriously.... Amazon has them, didn't find them at Lowe's or Home Depot

Yeah, I've replaced washers and snugged... all the fingers-crossed, first steps. We had a hard freeze here not long ago and I think some residual water in the line upstream of the trap froze and cracked the weak point. Also, I hit a pretty bad pothole about that same time frame that knocked the bejesus out of the rear end (and especially the side the outdoor kitchen is on). Maybe a confluence of things. Anyway, my spidey senses say that elbow is hairline cracked.

Haha! Yeah, that too.
I threw a cap on the drop line though, to half-spilt the problem, and the piece held.

But to your point, my better self says "if one leak crops up, others will follow". So I'll likely just replace that entire piece.

Which brings up another point...

Granted I'm relatively new to the RV game, but as much movement and flex that's constantly going on, it would seem that flex drain piping would be better used. Anyone done this, and if so, where do you source the fittings and such?
