In the pic you'll see two lines coming into a Y. The black is rodi waste line and the orange is from the fish room. In the fish room I have a Y there for rodi waste and skimmer waste. Both will be pumped with peristaltic pumps (long run). Should I place check valves to ensure water / muck is flowing the way I intend?
