Low Point Drain Valve

I need to replace all 3 "pull push" valves. Its not a o-ring thing, the plastic is broken. Several "forums" talk about the "O-rings" but nothing about where to get replacement valves. I can't find anything. Any help would be appreciated..

Home depot has "SharkBite" ball valves, would just slide on the PEX tubing.

OK, a little overkill, however the right idea. They also make smaller, lighter weight valves that should work.

You need 3 way valves or a T to a small ball valve to the drain line through the floor.

Put a T in the line where the valve currently is. Off the T put a shut off valve to a 90 degree elbow with a short piece of tube that runs through the hole in the floor. When the valve is closed your plumbing will work normally, when it's opened it will drain the system.
