Those check valves sound like they work the same way, but they are not see thru so you can see how they work. I would imagine though that an residue buildup on the diaphram or walls will also cause that design to fail.

I got sick of using check valves on brine shrimp hatchers cause the salt water would cause them to fail after just a month or two and went to just puting the pump up higher than the hatcher water level to prevent a back syphon.
