I always try to put the check as close as possible to the compressor

you might be OK with the way you have it now, but why risk it over a 5 dollar check valve? ;)

no, all the check realy does is keep the tank pressure from pushing on the compressor..

when the compressor turns off, the air between it and the check will leak down some, and that way, when the compressor starts again, there is no load on it..

just do the check as close to the compressors as you can.. you should be fine..

exactly what dan said, if you ever put a compressed bottle into your system without a check valve on the compressor it will blow all the seals on the comp. i had that happen to me before :(
