Well from what i can understand (im not making fun of you) i think you need to unscrew the solenoid and plug it with epoxy.

If your valve isnt already modded, then do so.

Where does it leak?

First make sure it's not backwards, second if you're using a hand pump, try pumping faster, you said it's for a paintball mine, so shouldn't be too hard to seal the valve with a bike pump.

So it seals until you trigger it? Unscrew the solenoid and make sure nothing is blocking it

is there a specific reason as to why it must be electronic?

If it has a air bleeder valve, make sure it's turned off.

since it is a mine he probably has it set up to be remotely triggered. That would be why he hasn't modded it.
