What causes the wand to leak water when the bay is not in use? How do I repair? THX

the water coming out of the gun has to come from the Tank or the main water line.
elevate the gun tip higher than the water level of the tank in the equipment room.
If it stops, It is a gravity feed problem.(tough some times,need some kind of syhon break)
if it continues(after elevation) it is a valve sticking open(freeze,or weep or cold water rinse)

Do you mean the solenoid valve? Sorry for my ignorance, but I'm new at this... Don't have a maint man experienced in car wash equipment.

I think its pressure, Had the same issue and paid 50$ for repair.
