I use a non-return check valve fitting between the tank and filter. when the pressure in the line equals the tank pressure it opens automatically. I don’t have to close the tank valve before purging and shutting down. It also has the benefit of not losing a tank full of air if I have an O-ring fail between the pump and the tank which has happened to me before. The fitting is just a male foster to male 1/8NPT with a valve inside. It can be had for $2-$3 on flea bay. Screw it into a male to female 1/8 NPT and you’ve got a male to male adaptor that can be used in both directions, just make sure you have a bleed valve on the isolated side or you won’t be able to uncouple anything.
