Yes, a one-way valve would help. I bore out the end of my tube and put a ball in it (like a glass marble), then trap the ball with a coat hanger wire across the top, making sure the wire doesn't poke out beyond the walls of the tube.

Nice! I was thinking along the lines of using the ball from an old mouse: marbles are easier to get in bulk though!
