Bilge pump non return valve.

Someone recommended that I install a non return valve on my automatic bilge pump. As a result I ordered one and installed it. BIG MISTAKE. The first time I tested it the valve stuck and would not allow the water to pump out. Its now gone. After I pumped the bilge there was no flow back through the pump back into the bilge.
