“Eaglebeak”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.

​I use the same fitting also between my tank and filter for the same reasons. Don’t have to watch the gauge before opening the tank valve. Also acts like PMV on partially filled tanks.
