    You can take the top off those valves and replace the o-rings and gaskets in them. You should also replace the spider gasket while you have it apart. Be sure to lube them when you're putting it back together.

    Yes, the parts are usually available at your local pool store. Do Not use vaseline!! It's a petroleum based product and will attack the rubber.

    Use silicon pool lube. Your pool store will have that too.
