The bypass one my heater was leaking and I found the bottom end of the pipe was too tight and squashed the washer which is quite thick and got distorted.

Your friendly RV person should have some for you. My dealer didn't charge me for it.

Be careful installing it as they are thick and should not be tightened too much or they will leak and/or restrict water flow.
