Ok so I got up last night around 2 am went and looked at my setup and found the pump for my bio pellets not working that well so I took it apart and did a good cleaning on it put back in and still no flow..... So I pulled it back out and took out the check valve now it is flowing really good.... I guess the check valve got stuck.... My question here is should I replace the check valve or just let it run?????

It depends on your setup. If there is any way that the system can back siphon if the power fails, you will want that check valve working. You might try to take it apart and clean it.

No I don't think it will drain the system I am going to run it this way for now and clean the check valve like you said and have it ready to go
