Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 145 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Very cost effective solution for spills and cleanup. I liked the fact that you could easily use multiple buckets without need to empty when full, extremely usefull. December 4, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by awesome Great product. Would like to see option for pleated filter... Bucket head did die inexplicably today. I was going to exchange it for a replacement cause it was just 1 month old. However I lost the receipt , but for $21.00 I would have bought it again. I decided to take it apart and fix it. I thought hiting it with my fist around the switch first. One or to good whacks and it sprang to life :) cheap switch is sticky... Works like new again November 10, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Strong little vacuum I'm a plumbing contractor and this has become my go-to vacuum for sucking up water and picking up wood shavings and dust. It's set up with an 1 1/4" hose so don't expect to pick up the big stuff on construction sites. The filter is very easy to remove and to reinstall so going from wet vac to dry vac only takes seconds. And who can't use a 5 gallon bucket on a job site? Simply unsnap the two levers on the sides of the vacuum head and set aside and you have a 5 gallon bucket that can be used for anything! Good value for the money. November 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Light and easy This product was exactly as advertised. I bought it initially because it was cheap and I'm glad that I did. It does exactly what he needs to do: suck up water from my leaky washing machine. I'm very please with this purchase. March 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bargain for second shop vacuum! I bought this to use as a second garage vacuum that could stay in "wet" mode, while my regular vacuum stayed in "dry" mode. Very handy, and a super bargain! I used it to suck out the condensate drip line on my air conditioner. Excellent for that, and much easier to empty and clean a round five gallon bucket than a standard shop vacuum. June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great item especially for condo w little storage space Great little wet dry vac - set up 20 seconds - sucked up back flow in dishwasher (approx 3.5 gallons) in less than 60 seconds. Easy to disassemble and clean. Easy to store. I can call the dishwasher repair guy Monday & take whatever appt they have because at least there is no more water February 22, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Life Saver Although a larger capacity wet vac with stronger suction would have been optimal, this $23, 5-gallon capacity wet vac was a life saver given the amount of water seeping into my basement storage during the downpour of the decade. I was impressed that the suction and motor kept performing well for almost 15 straight hours with only short breaks while I emptied the drum. The only complaint I have is that the person who sold this product to me didn't point out that I needed to purchase the 5-gallon (Home Depot) bucket to go with it. Close call since I didn't notice it myself until after I was in the car about to drive away. December 30, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by You Get (A Bit Less Than) What You Pay For Very cool concept, but poor execution. The unit I bought was defective, such that the on/off switch didn't actually do anything. The unit was always "on" when plugged in. Seems like an odd defect to have, but whatever, it happens. To make this vacuum useful, you are going to end up spending a decent amount of money on it, which will bring it in range of a typical low-end vacuum. The hose and electrical cords are too short to give the vacuum any useful range out of the box (i.e. you will need to buy a hose extender, and extension cord). The end of the hose isn't particularly functional, and there are no attachments included (i.e. you will need to buy attachments). The suction power is adequate for sawdust and small debris (<1/2"). Overall, it's a very low cost vacuum, with very limited utility to match. Be honest about your needs before deciding on this vacuum. September 21, 2014
