Question about Pentair Fns Plus 48 sqft De Pool Filter (In Ground Pool)
A check valve is a good idea, as back up! Not to fix a symptom due to a problem, that will go unsolved or unprepared. Replace the assembly at the top of the filter.
If you do decide to install a check valve, I presume what Adam is referring to is to put one in front of the pump onto your suction line. If you do do this, ensure you are NOT installing a disc style spring check. These will, especially when installed on a suction side, because of vacuuming debris like leaves, will get clogged and you will end up cutting them out due to very restricted water flow. The disc style spring check can be used on a pressure side, immediately after the pump. Instead, use a Swing Check on the suction side. Now, he swing flap even has a spring assist to keep them closed, when no flow.
When I feel the need to install a check valve on the suction side to eliminate back flow, I use this one...

You may either replace the air relief valve, or plumb in a check valve so that the water cant backflow
