    Kantleak Options

    Was looking online and saw that Anderson Brass no longer makes the Kantkleak cartridge for our 2016 Reflection 337 RLS. I believe I still have 1 left. My question is what options make the most sense as I'm sure we will need to replace this system.

    Thank you.

    I was told that B&B Molders still makes them and will take orders over the phone:
    B&B Molders, they manufacture the valves, and sell retail via phone.

    Otherwise I think people are replacing the whole panels.

    I always just replaced the O-rings instead of the whole cartridge.

    I always wondered if the O-rings failed or the brass insert got scratched up. Luckily we have not had any problems with ours in the 5 or so years we've had it, but I carry a spare cartridge just in case. If it is typically the O-rings which fail, then I think I have a bag of the same size in my topbox back home.

    Thank you for the suggestions. Iíll try calling B and B Molders as well as get some O rings. If all else fails down the road, replacing the panel isnít the end of the world.

    Thanks again.

    The most common failure mode for the KantLeak valve (pronounced "CAN Leak") is for the O-rings to "disappear" if the valve is rotated with pressure still on the system. That's why it's very important to depressurize both the hot and cold sides before turning the valve.
