    I got what I thought was the correct strainer and the little tit on the red air induction nozzle don't fit into the strainer opening. Is it supposed to? The blue one in picture was for the other tip.

    You are using the wrong style strainer. What you need is a CHECK VALVE STRAINER so when you turn off the pump you don't get dribble from the Nozzle. The Check Valve strainer are made of brass and have a small ball and spring inside that you can see if you look.

    This what I ordered and it is say check valve? So is the little tit supposed to fit inside the strainer hole or not?

    Spend the extra money and get the $ 3.69 model.
