This is the New/Pusher style inlet valve assembly that is included with DSP/Apex pumps listed in the above chart with build dates in late 2006 and 2007 onward. This inlet feature a "Pusher Stem" that allows a user to push/tap the lower ball without having to remove the suction set.

Compatibility Notes :
    • The New/Pusher and Non Pusher Inlets are interchangeable.
      This 0516292 New/Pusher style inlet is backwards compatible with 051222 Old Style-Non Pusher.
      Meaning the Old Style-Non Pusher sprayers will accept the New/Pusher Inlets; and the New/Pusher Sprayers will accept the Old Style-Non Pusher Inlets.

  • Cart models (wheeled), MUST use Metal-Flex suction set with New/Pusher Style Inlet.
    The New/Pusher Inlet is approximately พ" inch longer than the Old Style-Non Pusher Inlets. So if you are thinking about upgrading an older (non pusher) DSP/Apex sprayer (that has wheels) to the new style inlet you MUST purchase a new 0516278 Metal-Flex suction set as it is about พ" inch shorter.
    Note: The 9140/1420 models are not affected, you can use either the 0512215 or the 0516219 suction set with either the pusher inlet or the non pusher inlet.

Cleaning the Inlet :
If needed, you can remove the inlet assembly from the sprayer for further cleaning/inspecting. However please avoid taking the inlet apart for cleaning. (Refer to the owner's manual for further instructions; located on page 20 of the latest DSP/Apex owner's manual.)

NO individual parts are available for any of the inlet assemblies. So if you did take the inlet assembly apart for cleaning (which is highly not advised), be very careful to not loose any parts; or you will have to purchase the whole assembly.

F.A.Q's :
Question : 
      How do you know when to replace this part?

Answers :
  • 1: If you lost any parts inside the assembly you must replace the assembly. (Common part to loose is the ball, which the ball CAN NOT come out on its own. If it is lost this means the user took the assembly apart and lost the ball.)
  • 2: A inlet will eventually wear out and need replacing. A worn inlet will give you similar symptoms as a worn packing. So it is sometimes hard to tell when to replace the inlet assembly. The basic way to tell is if the pump is priming, but will not build up full pressure. And you know that the packing is good (and that the upper and lower ball is not stuck) then replace the inlet assembly.
