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).

all you have to do is open it up and take the paper filter off and then it's a wet vac. If it has a foam over filter you leave that on

When you use the shop vac for cleaning up water you must remove the filter.
The filter is for dust particles not for water
I would replace your filter and dump the water out from the shop vac, Also after each time you vacuum up water dump it out of shop vac.
I hope this helped you happy new year!

You press in the black cap in the middle of the filter while you pull up on the black "handles" around the edge of the filter. It just pops off.

SOURCE: ridgid shop vac is not sucking
I was using my ridgid wet dry vaccum when it shut down by itself and never restarted. I unplugged it and and checked the wall outlet which had power. What caused this to happen?
