Where can I find a filter for genie sv300q?


I have the Genie 3000 which is a 20 gal. wet/dry vac with a 3.0 HP motor. I had bought at Home Depot some 20+ years ago. I bought a replacement filter at HD made by someone other than Genie and claiming to fit my model...but it did not fit...too loose to stay in place. I did track down some hypo filters that might fit...but at $28+ for the filter I decided it was time to get a new model with better and cheaper and available filters. I bought a Ridgid WD1451 14 gal with 6.0 HP. It is so much nicer and quieter. HD regularly carries the WD1450 for $99 or so. The WD1451 is the same model but also had the car vac hose and attachments (a $40 set) included for free. That was a limited offer probably no longer available. Get you a new one and enjoy it...I did...and I still have the Genie...but I think I'll toss it because it is too big, too loud, and I love this new Ridgid.

My genie 10 gallon wet dry vac is hardly picking up any water. what is wrong?


Check the filter in the vacuum to see if it is plugged. Try removing the hose to see if there is better vacuum at the machine. Is there a hepa filter in the exhaust that might be plugged. Hope this helps!

Genie 400PC 16 gal shop vac but can't find filters


If you need paper filters, you can easily use a bag filter cut in half, and have less dust clouds than the original filter. Remember to use the lock ring. Generic ShopVac mini's have the same filter in foam.

Jhe4576. I own a Genie SV125Q, 5 gallon wet/dry


Where did you buy this unit from? Go back there and ask if they have filters for yours. Otherwise look in the Yellow Pages for vacume cleaner repair shops. Sometimes they have all kinds of filters for all kinds of vacumes. You can try places like Wal Mart. What you want to look for are filters that will work with your unit. The foam filter you refer to is called a pre-filter. It traps the bigger particles so they won't damage your paper filter or clog it up especially if it's wet stuff you're picking up. You can remove that foam filter and gently wash it out in the sink with a mild dishwashing liquid and warm water. And even sometimes if you have time you can wash a paper filter out by hosing it out from the inside, with just a gently rinsing on the outside. Don't use any solvents on it just soap and water. And don't use high pressure either, as it will destroy the paper. I have cleaned my paper filters several times before I finally had to replace them. You can also look at places like Lowe's. They carry shop vacs and a whole assortment of attachments as well.

Vacuuming up water with Shop Vac model 84M200


when picking up dry materials use the foam sleeve that slips on and the blue cloth (assuming there all blue) over it, there should be a ring that slides over blue cloth to hold it in place over the foam sleeve, for wet pick up u can use the foam sleeve minus the blue cloth but let it dry out before picking up dry stuff, you can pick up both wet and dry with a cartrige filter that looks simular to a car air filter and it slips over the foam sleeve, but let it dry out after picking up water before picking up dry cause itll just clog it up

Set up the shop vac to pick up water


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.
