You should always have a ball valve on the return side of your return pump. This way you can ensure the perfect amount of return into your tank to match the overflow. I've also read that this kind of restriction is healthy for a pump and extends their life, though I am far from an expert on if this has any truth to it.

Yes having ball valves on both drains and return would be great so that you could dial everything in correctly. Return and drains
