I have an Insinkerator hot water dispenser that started leaking. The leak is coming from the seal between the stainless steel tank (2/3 gallon) and the plastic fitting attached to the top of the tank. The tank is a two piece unit, so after dis-assembly there is accessibility to both sides of the plastic fitting. Unfortunately it is an adhesive bonded fitting with no way to tighten it down to the tank. The fitting needs to be replaced. Initially I was going to replace it with a brass bulkhead fitting, but I have some concerns because some brass fittings have minute traces of lead, and the fitting will be in contact with water at 190 deg. F. Another option is a stainless steel bulkhead fitting, but I am having problems locating these. Can anyone give me a source for either lead free brass fittings or stainless steel fittings. The size I need is 1/8” pipe bulkhead fitting with about a 3/4-20 OD for the threaded port that goes through the tank. The Clippard 15029-1 in brass is what I was originally looking at, and would work but I don't think it is lead free. Thank you ahead of time for any information!
