Question about Ridgid 9 Gallon Wet/Dry Shop Vac 96882 Canister Vacuum
Posted by Anonymous on
You really cannot wash the paper filter. You can blow it out with an air hose if you have access to one, or vacuum it off with another vacuum. If it does get wet you should let it dry outside of the vacuum before you use it again.

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.

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

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?
