Check valves for vinyl tubing

I'm hoping to use vinyl tube on my return line from my sump, but can't find check valves for it. Two questions:
1. Are there any cons to using vinyl tube for the return line?
2. I could use a barbed fitting to MPT so I could use a FPT valve, then back again, right?

Any problems with this?
