    There should not be any back pressure, simply make a loop so the line is about 2-3" higher than the water surface.
    Aquamedic makes a decent check valve.

    I have only had problems on a DIY setup. The water in a new bottle was warmer than the air, so when it gradually cooled it sucked the water from the tank. It eventually fixed itself when it started to produce CO2. ;)
