Fluval 105 leaky aquastop valve

Hi guys, it's been a while since I posted,

Through a power outage at home I noticed my aquastop valve leaks when water pressure back-flows from the outlet of the filter...

Anyways it leaks from the side and I couldn't find a way to disassemble and clean the o rings or whatever

So has any of you had experience with this? I can buy a new valve for the 106 but not the 105 are they compatible?

Power is still out and I've stopped the leak, but I've got very little time to fix this of just purchase a new valve

Help is much appreciated

Just purchase a new valve. Or you can try using plumbers tape around all the fitting to see if that will seal the leak.
