Yes there is an easy fix. Turn off power to spa. Remove the knob that you turn on that diverter valve you can wiggle it up and down till it pops off, under that cap is what is called a bezel this threads onto the plumbing part of the diverter valve and inside there is where your issue is. If you unscrew the bezel and slide up and out the gate that is on the inside , now it can leak form one of two places either it leaks up through the center where the stem sticks out that the handle you just pried off is connected or under the bezel there is an o-ring that is in the male threaded part attached to the acrylic, you will need to replace the o-ring and the 2 small o-rings on the stem that is in the bezel the gate should just pull down and out of the bezel, replace these o-rings and put diverter valve back together and then turn on power to spa and you should be good.
