I figured I had nothing to lose so I just started vacuuming. I thought I had to turn the end of the hose that connects to the shop-vac around (which I did so that it brought the water down to the 'bucket'. Other than that, I even went to Yahoo Answers and asked for input. The answers were - just vacuum, they didnt think there was anything to do with the vacuum to set it up for wet vac. I had removed the cloth filter used for dry vacuuming so I was ok with that. I also saw a YouTube video that said basically to remove the cloth filter. Ok .... that was not so difficult. Thank goodness too.

open the top of the vacuum. remove ONLY the filter element. There should be a ball about a two inch diameter inside the cage. It's purpose is to shut off the vacuum flow when water reaches a high in the canister.

With the tank off, check to see if the rod in the handle is hitting the reservior asm,(this what the tank sits on). If it is, then the reservior asm. could be bad. If it isn't, then there is a problem inside the handle. Also make sure the filter at the bottom, has a red frame is clean. There also if there is a foam filter on the inside of the recovery tank lid, make sure it has a 1/4 in or so gap from the top.

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.

you need to go get some bags and srew on the nozel and then put the bag inside the vac it will then act like a dry vac.
