Leaking Foot Valve

Pretty sure I have a leaking foot valve. The bladder tank checks good. I close the output valve and the pump keeps cycling every few seconds. With valve open, I'm losing pressure and the pump is cycling. I have a above ground pump with a 2" pipe into the ground. Can I add a check valve on the well pipe to solve this? Thanks.

As a temporary cost saving measure you can put a check valve between the pump and the well.
