Need New Check Valve For Suburban Water Heater

I need to replace the check valve in the hot water connection on my Suburban hot water heater. Any suggestions on where I might get one online? I've been Googling it with no luck. Here's what the heater looks like.

I get that far no problem...but I'm still not finding a "check valve." Is it called something else, too?

Check valves usually go bad, or do not work because of something in the valve. Pull out the valve and check for debris in and around the valve. this might be a post suburban add on and not available from suburban. might have to try lowes home depot or grainger if valve is bad.

I'm a newbie to all this, but everyone on the FR forums and elsewhere have called it a "check valve." I lost pressure in my hot water lines and it ended up being this valve that had broken up and blocked the line. Apparently it is there to keep the water moving one way so the cold water doesn't mix with the hot...
