A check valve is generally placed just below the pitless adapter but it can be installed anywhere between the well and the bladder tank.

If the old one is above the pitless adapter, then just replace the old one. If you are not familiar with wells and plumbing, then get a well driller to fix it, in the long run it will be worth the money.
