Vortex diatom filter

I acquired a twenty gallon tank at a flea market, and it has a Vortex diatom filter. I can DIY strainers, but it is missing the U tubes. Are these just tubes, or do they have one way valves?

Thanks,
Wayne

They're just plastic U's, no check valve(s). These are fantastic micron filters to use periodically, but can't be used continuously because of the high velocity of the water.
