Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Unfortunately that part is not repairable, but you can but just that tank with all the parts. Average cost is between $500-$600 to replace that tank only. That is not the cost for entire new unit. Wish I had better news. If you have anymore questions please let me know and please don’t forget to leave 5 star feedback rating. Thank you.
