I'm guessing you mean between the sump and the main tank? You don't want to resrict water flow from the tank to the sump. Anyway, you can use a ball valve. If you can get a globe valve, that would be better. Be sure to put it on the pressure side of the pump and not the inlet side. It'll cause bubbles like crazy on the inlet side due to cavitation.
