Foot valve and check valves do the same thing. Just a foot valve usually has a screen and is placed on the suction side of the pump, where a check valve is used when needed usually on the discharge side of the pump.

I am new to this forum and the suction pump is a really new concept for me.
Did you start your work?
Please share some photos of your work, please
I am sure this will be great information.
