Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wizardman Use muffler/ diffuser in place of vf3500 filter for wet applications
Why use paper filter vf 3500 for wet applications and chance ruining the $16 unit?
Remove the vf 3500 paper filter and then use muffler as external filter; you can add additional material inside muffler (loose enough as not to impede airflow), or attach additional filter paper or similar externally with rubber bands, tape or nylon slip ties.
Easy to clean up after use, keeps liquid inside of tank from misting out of unit.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by drjimdmd Accessory Documentation poor
Vacuum is excellent, but comes with only one tool. There is no documentation on the box what size hose comes with the tool. Additional accessories come in a few sizes and the stores I went to had these all mixed up in the bins they were supposed to be in. Took multiple trips to store to fully equip the unit with all necessary accessories.The manual does not specify the hose diameter either.
Additional extension tubes which come with most other vacs are not included. Total cost to outfit this tool is greater than their more powerful vacs which come with many more accessores standard.
Seems a lot to pay for a portable in light of above.

This piece of equipment didn't even help with the filtering out the vacuum. I couldn't return it because it was dusty From the sheet rocking that was on the floor.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BrotherBart Doesn't work at all
Can't complain about the quality of this item. It has a hook so it locks on the vacuum cleaner, the plastic is the usual plastic for vacuum cleaner accessories (very hardy)... however I simply can NOT hear any difference. Am I mistaken there isn't a louder vacuum cleaner than a RIGID? I have a Craftstman (6.5 PHP) Shopvac and a Rigid 5HP PHP. My Craftsman has no noise reduction and it has to be 1/3rd - 1/2 as loud even though it's bigger. I thought putting this noise reducer would maybe make the Rigid as quiet but putting this on didn't seem to make any effect. Maybe it reduces it 3% I don't know, but having a vacuum that's deafening and lowering its sound amount by 3% is still deafening.

The vacuum muffler I bought worked pretty good. It took that high pitch whine out of it.

This muffler is pretty useless. I didn't notice any difference with it on or off. The exhaust vent isn't what makes all the noise. I guess it'll work as a good backup in case any fine dust particles makes it through the filter??

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TLB123 Excellent!
A shop vac, no matter the brand, isnt quiet, so just expect it! The product is not a sound muffler, it works perfect!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Weekendwarrior Diffuser yes, muffler no.
Doesn't do much for muffling the sound.
I wouldn't recommend this if you are trying to quiet your vac.
