Question about Ridgid 25648 Wet/Dry Vacuum
I don't have the filter in because I thought that is for dry vacuuming. do I need to have the filter in? Thank you in advance
I always have the filter in - - it helps protect the motor.
If you're going to vac liquids, I recommend use of an intermediate trap to stop most of the liquid from getting to my vac (makes clean-up a LOT easier). A cyclone-top (available at Rocker.com, for example) fitting on a 5-gallon pail works great. The liquid is mostly deposited in the 5-gal pail, and doesn't gum-up the guts of your vac. You need another section of hose, but that's another one of those tools that is hard to have too-much of. (Rockler also sells a nice hose as part of it's Vacuum Tool Kit - also at Rockler.com).

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.
