leaking cascade 1000

hello my girlfriends cascade 1000 started leaking while we were away for the weekend. i figure about 5 gallons ended up on the ground...... one of the fittings that has the shutoff valves built in was dripping from the middle around where it swivels. ive been trying to find replacement parts for it. we got it used with her tank. she swore it off and replaced it with a hob today.

i would like to go through it and freshen it up with new seals and o-rings aswell as replace the shutoff valves but i cant find a vendor who sells parts.

does anyone have any idea where i can get them? or if this type of leak is common?

Contact Penn Plax. I had my canister crack were it latches to the lid, causing it to leak. I emailed them and they sent me a parts list and asked me what I needed. It was delivered about a week later. I didn't have to pay a thing and I never provided any proof of purchase or warranty info.
