In respect to this, what PSI should you use for drip irrigation?

about 25 pounds per square inch

do I need a check valve on my irrigation system? Check valves are used in many applications but we will focus on what we use in irrigation. No human intervention is required for the check valve to do its job, it is operated by flow and differential pressure. Inline check valves are used anywhere you want to prevent water draining from the system after shutting down.

Also question is, how does a drip irrigation pressure regulator work?

Pressure regulators reduce incoming water pressure to a set pressure usable by a drip system. A pressure regulator is used when the incoming pressure is too high for the emitters or fittings. The flow rate of the regulator should be matched with the system.
