Answer: 
Yes but not thru Home depot. you can get it at a vacuum store. you could also use a couple and put two together. But I will warn you it will diminish the sucking power. My suggestion is use a longer extension cord and bring it to where you are vacuuming.

Loose connection between container and power head?

This question is from 2.5-gal. Wet/Dry Vacuum with 1.25 in. Hose and Accessories
Asked by
Houston, Texas

August 13, 2015
The instructions state; “Place the power head back on the container, aligning the top section with the latches, and snap into place”.
Having done this, I find that the container is very loose on to the power head – there is ¼” free movement between the two parts.
I expected that the connection would be tight between the power head and the container.
Is that much loose play normal?

Answer: 
Hello Owner, thank you for your question. Yes, it is normal for this vacuum. When the vacuum is operating, the tank is under a negative pressure which pulls the lid down with ease onto the tank to complete the seal. Thank you!

Answer: 
Virginia,
Thank you for your response. Mine is loose when not in use - the container moving freely up and down by circa 1/4" from the head. When I switch the vacuum on, the suction pulls the container tightly up against the head. Do your containers fit snuggly against the head when the vacuum is not in use?

Answer: 
Where do you think all the air that is getting sucked into the vacuum goes? I'm sorry, but there is no "black hole" switch that prevents air from blowing out.

Answer: 
Hello Caldin. The AA255 blower functionality occurs when the hose is plugged into the port on the motor head. When vacuuming, , the hose must be inserted into the port on the canister. There should be some air flow that will exit the blower port while using the vacuuming port due to the buildup of air pressure. Please also check to see if your cloth filters are properly installed onto the motor. Thanks Read More

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 129 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Great the first and only time I could use it Worked great the first time I used it. Picked up pretty much everything I needed it to do. Then I put it aside on the garage for a few months until I needed it again. The next time I needed to use it, the suction was not nearly as good. I cleaned the filter and then tried to put the top back on. However, the top no longer fit. Over the summer, the canister had warped, just sitting in my garage. I tried to reshape the canister to fit properly, but was unsuccessful. On the plus side, most of it is plastic so I can recycle it. I would not recommend this at all. The plastic around the top of the canister it too thin to hold up. October 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome! This little vacuum works great, it's light weight and easy to maneuver and store, suction is excellent, highly recommend it. October 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good compact shop vac Small enough to not be a burden but powerful enough to get the job done. October 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little vac Can't beat this unit for the price. I have not used it much, so will have to see how it hold-up. September 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best product For such a small vacuum it is quite powerful. Love it! September 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not buy Only gave it one star because zero wasn't an option. Worked ok for a few uses then lost all suction. The little it did vacuum up came back out the hose when I shut the motor off. The features were ok except it could have a longer hose and longer attachment to get between seats. August 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly what you need Works perfect and is a great size for everyday use. This will make keeping your car clean a breeze. Home Depot had the best price too. August 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by not bad so far I install tile and my big shop vacs to the dirty work and I got this to keep in the bathrooms with me so at the end of the day I quickly vacuum up and keep my workspace clean while not taking up as much room as the shop vacs. also easier to cary around the house and not have to worry about bumping into a wall like the big shop vacs. I also tried cleaning my truck with it and my only complaint is the brush attachment that you would use to try and clean and vacuum the seats with comes off very easily when your doing a back and forth motion. for the money cant really beat it June 28, 2016
