Some filters just pull straight off, while others have a large plastic knob that unscrews to remove the filter. if it is a foam filter, it is just a stretch fit and pulls off, though it usually tears.

How do I remove the filter from a Rigid 4 gal portable wet/dry vac


James the attached link/video shows filter just pulls off. I also put a link to the manual and it show the filter held on with large plastic nut, which would have to be removed first.

I bought my first craftsman 9 gallong wet/dry vac - i do not know how to operate it and I don't want to break anything. I have a pamphlet but it is still confusing. can I pour a few gallons of water into...


Hello again.
When it says wet vacuuming, it means that the vacuum will pick up water, not dispense it. When you are using the vacuum to pick up water, you'll need to remove the paper filter element under the motor, inside the canister, to avoid ruining it. When the filter is removed, you will see a plactic ball inside a cage under the motor. It's purpose is to float up on the surface of the water being vacuumed up, and prevent the motor from getting water into it. You'll be able to tell when the canister is full; the noise the vacuum makes will change and sound higher. Also, the suction at the hose will quit. At that point, shut off the vacuum and drain the water.
Be sure to replace the paper filter when you swap back from liquids to solids.
Best regards, --W/D--

Should I remove the filter when using it as a wet vac. I t does not seem to have much suction.


Absolutely remove the filter for wet vac. Also, if your present filter got wet replace it as the pores are now clogged and you can't save it. J.

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.

Bought house. Inherited shop/vac. A bit old, but


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.
