Question about Craftsman 17026 Wet/Dry Vacuum
I understand that you do not understand how to operate you wet/dry vac. The vac works the same way as a traditional canister vac, the difference is that it will **** up solids and liquid. If the vacum is being used to **** up liquids you need to remove the filter. It is not like a rainbow vac that you need to add water to use. It is just a tradiional vac that can also **** up liquid without destroying the unit.

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--
