    Thanks. Removed old spungy round filter. Seems this is all that needs to be removed to go with wet? tx. h.

    Have it working somewhat! Do not have attachments for this shop vac but have managed to find an old attachment from a vacuum that is serving the purpose at the moment.

    Thank you very much for your help. Helen M.

If you are going to use the wet vac to remove water, be sure to remove the bag inside the canister first. Also, some wet vacs have an internal float that has to be installed, but that may not be the case with yours.

What would cause my shop vac series90pn to quit working while picking up water


The best thing for a basement that is vulnerable to flooding is a small sump with a permanently wired automatic submersible pump in it. Such pumps are relatively cheap and available in many qualities.
While such an installation will not keep a basement dry it will ensure the water level rises only enough for the majority to flow into the sump and be pumped away without you needing to do anything.

Wet vacs of my experience either have a float valve to prevent water ingress into the motor or a switch to cut off the power if the level rises too high.
Many such vacs have a powerful motor generating much heat and are only suitable for fairly short duty cycles. When used continuously the internal heat build up can distort plastic and melt thermal safety fuses.

It is impossible to guess what the trouble might be and that will only be revealed by checking. With vacs the first suspect is the power cord and the second is the switch...

We inherited the shopvac 16 gallon. I bought the required filter (foam) but the dust blows back from the blow hole. Am I missing a part?


The foam filter is for use when using the vac. to pick up water. Now you should have a paper filter for picking up dry material.If possible you may want to look inside of one at the store. Hope this helps.

Do you need a special filter for wet application


Yes. The following site shows the filters and which is used for what. Due to potential motor damage, I wouldn't use it without the proper filter.

My basement is flooding and my 5 gal shop will not **** up the water. It works momentarily and then spits the water back out


You should remove the filter that is inside the vac. This should allow for the vac to **** up the water. But just in case that doesn't do it, here is a link to a site that may contain a free download of your manual:

Just look up your type of vac and click on it.

Good Luck!

Old shop vac


Hi,
Yes there should be a filter fitted onto the top section.

For suppliers, it would be cheapest to find your nearest stockist, or buy online and have it shipped. It's still current stock - so spares should be readily available.

Sears stock it -

Using shop vac 52722-90 for wet applications


yes, the foam filter is what you should use, also make sure you remove any bag, or paper filter, the water would make it fall apart.

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!
