Question about Vacuums
Was left with water inside possible filter damage? Mold? water coming out blow hole and little to no suction.
The wet and dry vaccuums should normally have the dust filter removed when used for wet work. If the filter was left in, it will certainly be clogged and useless. I would suggest trying the unit with no filter, just to check there is good suction. If there is, a replacement filter is required. If there is still little or no suction, then it is possible that there is a blockage within the impeller area somewhere. Wet dust/dirt tends to stick really well to the impeller blades, reducing their efficiency to point of almost no suction. I'm not sure if you can get that far into your unit, if you can, it would be worth using a stiff brush to remove and adhered debris.
