You may need new 'O' rings, have you removed and examined the water pump?
When you remove the water pump check for worn bearings, loose shaft or damaged impeller. Also do not use coolant with 'Silicates' it destroys the water pump.
It's easy and you can change it yourself.
Just keep your eyes on the level in the radiator and over flow tank.
