Why is water coming out the city water hookup when pump is used?

My hose that I have hooked up to the city water hookup got a hole in it and was spewing water. Until I could get a new hose, I decided to put water into the tank and just use the pump for the night. However, when I turn on the pump water comes out the city water inlet like it is a faucet. I've used the pump before and didn't have this issue. Looking for ideas of what I'm doing incorrectly.

Check valve stuck open in city inlet. See if you can remove the screen and push in on the check valve to get it to seat. Spring loaded.
