Question about Vacuums
It doesn't seem like I'm getting much use out of my vacuum bags, and they're quite expensive. Of course, if I want to lower the suction power to 500-750, then the indicator isn't fully "red," but I've also lost suction power. I have a navy blue carpet, and it shows every speck of lint, so I need the power at 900 to 1100 or I'll be vacuuming over the same spot a dozen times to get everything up. Is there something else I can do to make the suction power high and the bag last longer? Is this something to do with a filter I'm not seeing or that needs changing?
Check the suction at the vac, without the hose, if it is strong, then you hose is clogged. If it is weak, filters could be the problem, one is the back where the bag sits, the other is on the top, you can see it when you raise the lid.

For a longer lasting bag, try vacuuming up 4-6 sheets of toilet paper. This provides more surface area for the dust to cling to. It may not work on all brands/models, but on many it does.
