    Does anyone stock or knows who stocks kent marine ro units and spares?
    I broke the connector leading out of the membrane cartridge. It has a slightly smaller diameter screw thread than normal units and I cannot find the correct size fitting anywhere. Dont particularly want to have to replace the entire section because of a connector that should cost a couple of rand.
