check valve I think.....

I have canal that I pump from. Turned system and worked fine then shut it off.. went to the store came home, turned system back on and got no water. Pump is running and turning the impeller but no water. Checked for blockage in pipe in canal could not fine any. Could check valve be not opening and not letting water through. Need some help here..
