Hi, I am here to help you with your question.
Inside the valve under your compool actuator is the 3-way valve.
The o-rings inside that valve probably need to be replaced.
If you need more help with those orings, just let me know the name of the 3-way valve too.
We can continue to communicate here until you are satisfied I have answered your question.
