Questions & Answers

Does the WR4000 filter include the cap that the nut tightens onto?

Asked by: jbwat
Keep the nut you already have... they are reusable forever.

What is the right way to wash these filters?

Asked by: Whitey
I shake and brush it out really well into a large trash bin. Also, when I purchased a replacement filter, I cleaned and kept the old one and use it when I actually vacuum the new filter with the shop vac.

Are Rigid VF4200 1-Layer Pleated Paper Filters really WASHABLE and reuseable according to the description?

Asked by: Bull
My old one was sort filthy and clogged up, it wasn't worth washing. Possibly if I had checked it more frequently, it might have been salvageable.

The price is high for such a filter, I guess that's where they make their money. The HEPA V-6000 5 layer (green) is the one you want if you are vacuuming lots of fine dust, anything with contaminants, or dust from sheetrock or tile work, etc. ---but it costs 40% more. I bought one online $12 less than the HD price in store. I used this filter for vacuuming up large particles and some Asian beetles that got into my bunkhouse and it works fine for that purpose.

It fit very close to the original filter. The only difference is that it is just slightly taller. However, I made it fit by not adding the Sears plastic plate that goes on top, and pushing down on the new filter's rubbery top, so that the wing nut could catch the threaded rod. It installed just fine after that.

Good replacement My old filter had seen better days so I gave this one a go. It comes with a built-in rubberized end so the old separate end of the filter was no longer needed. Fired up the vac and the new filter gave the vac more zip. Won't know exactly how it does until I empty the vac, but so far it's doing its job.

This RIDGID wet/dry vac filter is very easy to exchange so it’s a breez to remove and clean between usage. This is the 3rd filter that I’ve replaced in 3 years. I clean the filter after every use and for at least a year of moderate service, the performance of my vac and this filter has exceeded my expectations.

I have an older Home Depot Ridgid that I had bought 20 years ago and I didn’t think I could or would be able to find a filter for it. But… as always, I sometimes fool myself but go look any way. I found this filter the would match up with the filter area on my ridgid vac, it did, thanks

I think these filters work fine for general dirt and low amount of dust but clog up easy with any cat / dog hair and other materials. They are a bit pricey and not a real bargain or steal of a deal as a two pack. But for overall average usage they are the only good choice for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well Okay, never try your shop vac without a filter. I did and dust went everywhere. It's hard to believe that this simple filter keeps EVERYTHING inside the shop vac. Works great. I was thinking that I needed a bag to keep drywall dust from going everywhere, but just the filter works fine.

It keeps the fine dust particles, and things like cheatgrass from getting into the mechanical parts of my shop vac. I vacuum up a lot of dirt, cleaning storage units, and this product really works.
