Actually it is to maintain the prime and stops the water from draining back into a well and allows the pump maintain the pressure in the accumulator. In a multistory house the water in the upper floors would drain back to the pump. A broken spring will result in water hammer in the system.

In a urban single storey house system connected to government water the anti-drain back function may not be necessary but doesn't do any harm.
