Must replace tank.
Insinkerator stainless steel tank does not have anode rod to protect against depleted tank wall.

There is a retainer ring that holds the drain and the Insinkerator together. You loosened the drain with the 4 screws. You need to rotate the retainer ring counterclockwise when looking up from the bottom. Maybe 45 degrees and it will come loose. BE CAREFUL IT WILL WANT TO FALL!!

SOURCE: Insinkerator instant hot water tank leaking

When you cut the pipe it has to be cut square or it will leak . Try recutting the end of the pipe and then reinserting it. If this doesn't work then the only thing you can do is replace the fitting.

SOURCE: GE SmartWater RO Filter Tank Leaking?

I had same system under my sink for same amount of time and have since then removed entirely for health reasons related to Ro Systems. Mainly the tanks becomes contaminated [alge build up]and my faimly had constant nagging stomach aches which took a long time to resolve untill we decided to disconnected and throw out our "beloved healthy RO System" and decided to install a bi annual disposable type filter system. If you are expereanceing this I would advise the same as for the leak ,There are so many connections under there and it is usually not the tank but the fittings in lines some where and the reason it looks like the tank is because that is the lowest point the leak has traveled. So check all your fittings and if you decide on simple water filter I will advise you.

Please rate. Thanks jj505

SOURCE: size and installation for instant water heater

Ariston gl4.0 should be fine if used inline with your hot water heater. Used alone it will likely run out when dishwasher is filling and you are using sink.To use your existing hot water for backup: 1 connect existing HOT water line to cold (inlet) on ariston, 2 Then HOT (outlet) from ariston to sink and dw. If you want instant hot water at a sink 10 feet away: use 3/8 pex pipe from ariston to sink, so you only have to run off a cupful or 2 before hot water arrives at sink.

For some reason, after 5 years, a small leak has developed where the hot water exits the autocirc2 tank when you turn the hot water on. I removed the fixture where the plastic tubing hooks on and the only...


It's true, nobody has 100% perfect answer for broken stuff.
Open following link for some autocirc resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-recirculation-system.html

If I understand correctly, you removed supply line that connects autocirc pump to the hot water shut off valve.
Buy standard sink supply line at local box store or plumbing supply.
If memory serves, the supply line is 1/2" IP thread that connects to pump and 3/8" Compression fitting that connects to shut off.
You might try using thick-bodied white teflon joint compound to help seal the connection.
I use rectoseal on threaded connections and tubular drain connections to ensure forever seal:

If brass part of pump is cracked, then autocir may be bad.
I have no idea how to permanently fix a broken brass water fitting, and would suggest replacement at that point.

Upvote the help.

Make sure that there is no leaks traveling down the hoses or at the connections on the top. The tanks can leak, if you have the Stainless Steel tank the following information applies - Stainless Steel Tank: 3 years, with an extended service plan available when installed by an InSinkErator Pro Circle™ plumber. I you product is under warranty I believe that you can call the number that is printed on the tank and literature.
