Hi, it does sound like your on the right track as the noise gets louder when you turn the wheel. without turning the wheel you should have a slight noise that will get louder when you turn the wheel this would then point me to believ the power steering pump needs replacing.
As your not loosing any fluid then the rest of the steering should be ok so changing the pump will solve your problem, just remember to make sure you bleed the pump properly and the steering properly after fitting the new one as not doing this properly could cause damage to seals inside the rack itself causing more problems than you need so double check you have bled all the air out ok.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

SOURCE: Power steering pump
No loud whinning is normal, nor refilling so often; you most likely will have a bad steering pump, but before replacing it check for fluid leaks left on the ground afternight. A broken hose may have provoked damage to the pump by making it work without enough fluid causing it to overheat and damaging the seals. Check for the bad hose first and have it replaced. Good luck

Sounds like you need a new power steering hose. To verify this, I would dry up any wet areas on the hose and pump with a towel, get a flashlight and start the vehicle and try to determine the exact site of the leak which is usually at the ends of the hoses. Good luck!

It might be the rack and pinion kit (seals)
I had this problem 2 months ago... replaced the powersteering pump 3 times until I convinced the mechanics to look at the rack and pinion. there they found the leak, especially when I turned the wheel.. They first kept telling me there was air in the lines and it would go away. but that never happened.
