Raft pump check valve

Do raft pumps (carlson, DRE, ect) have check valves in the handle?? I have a DRE one that sometimes feels like the check valve doesn't close and doesn't pump. Does that mean the O-ring is dry or is there a check valve that isn't closing properly?? I haven't cracked it open to see what's in there yet. Thanks!!

Open her up and clean all surfaces. Then grease everything up again and she should work better!
