Need a little help in the plumbing department!!

I need a little bit of help from you all: I am experiencing a problem completely draining my bilge and shower sump on my Morgan 33 OI.

The problem is that the bilge and sump are at the same level...well below the water line and the distance to the thruhulls at the stern and the rise in elevation from bilge and sump bottom is such that a significant amount of water is left in the lines when the pumps shut off....they both have automatic switches.....well there is a significant amount of water returning to the bilge or sump but not enough to reactivate the pumps.

Does anyone know where I might be able to find "check valves" that would be able to stand up to salt water and also to fresh water with soap in it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
