From my understanding the concept of the bladder is that it is an easy repair if needed.
Here is a link to IRR.

Eric does a great job. Just got a 16' Avon back from him after I tore out the old floor pressure relief valve. (It had been cross threaded.) He went ahead and looked it over a replaced a couple of valves that were leaking and patched a thin spot. If you want personalized service from the best one man shop in the state.............. give Eric a try.
