RB 5000 Plus and check valves.....?

Just wondering if anyone knows..

If i add the check valve filter screen to all the heads in my zones, Will this be a problem? I am running 5 heads per zone (5 Zones) and right now i only have them installed in the lowest head on the zone. It keeps pushing the water back, on one zone i had to install 3 to stop the water from pushing up from any head. Anybody have experience with this....?

The check valve shoundn't hurt anything, but what I would do is replace them all with 5000+'s

Yes...i have the Rainbird 5000 PLUS rotor heads (the one with the on and off water feature, top green cover). I had to install SAM filters on the last 3 heads on my #1 zone, just wondering if i went ahead and put them in every single one of my heads would it be a problem....Thanks for your reply.
