All pumps have a "check valve". It allows the pump to pressurize the air in the barrel and lets the pressurized air flow into the tube but won't let the air flow back from the tube into the pump. That is it does those things if it's working right.

I expect the problem with your pump is either the chamber gasket or the check valve.
