    Non-return valve - replace?


    I'm trying to ascertain if this non-return valve needs to be working. Here's a picture:

    The plunger(?) managed to bend itself somehow:

    Do I need to replace this? The pool seems to run fine with the water just passing through.

    The only issue with it not being there is that water could back into the pump from the filter. If that's not happening then it's not needed. I wouldn't worry about replacing it unless you hqave an issue. My system doesn't have one at all.
