Water pump problem - broken strainer

I posted a couple of months ago about a leaking fresh water tank in my 2012 Scamp 16. I have finally had time to take a closer look. The strainer is broken off of the pump, so I'm guessing that

a) water can leak out at this point and
b) there would be no vacuum for the pump to work, even if water did not leak out.

I am also guessing that I'll need to replace the entire strainer, which means having to re-seal it. [Edit: The filter cup may just screw on the outside of the unit, so I may not have to replace the entire thing. I did find the aftermarket version, 255-323 on Amazon] They do have instructions on the site: http://shurflo.com/images/files/RV_P...0Strainers.pdf

Rebecca, Karen and I had the same problem with our fresh water filter (strainer). I was able to remove it and took it to an RV dealer in Bangor, and he got me one off of the shelf. It only took a few minutes to replace it.
If you have a lot of cold weather in the winter time, that may be why it cracks. If you are near a RV dealer, they may have the part, or you can get the after market one on Amazon. It's really not too hard to replace.
