One-way valve in bilge pump outlet line?

Last weekend I had a problem where (I was on the boat at the time, thankfully) the bilge pump did not stop running, but did not appear to be pumping any water out at the stern. The problem appeared to be that the one-way valve in the line from bilge pump to stern, had stuck.

Question is, do I even need this valve? What does it protect me from?

Mark,

This thread should help explain it all. Your scenario is exactly what I described in that thread..

Bilge Check Valve / Non-Return Valve
