Questions & Answers

Can this filter be washed?

The manual states that the VF500 is "made of high quality paper". Paper is generally not a washable material. Please clarify the washing endurance of the filter. Does Rigid offer a truly washable filter composed of synthetic materials that will withstand repeated washing?
Asked by: Retired
It will shorten the life drastically. There is no reinforcement on the inside and the filter nearly collapses. One of the layers on the inside partly washed off. If you want to wash filter get the Gore.

To be honest, I've been knocking the crud off the original filter in my shop vac over and over. But I started a project where I'm tearing out a lot of sheetrock so there's a lot of that fine dust and particulate. I bought this filter that adds a higher level of filtration just for sheet rock and it worked awesome. I kind of expected the vac to have less suction, but I actually had a lot more than I was used to - probably because of the old filter being clogged. It was really going to town. And the air blowing out of the vac was clear so I got a big area cleaned up well--a big win.

We are doing extensive renovations, which is generating a ton of dust. This filter does an excellent Job of catching it. It does get clogged with heavy use, but we are able to shake out a lot of it, then use an air compressor to clean it. It pay to use a separator device the the Oneida Dust Deputy, to keep the filter clean far longer.

We decided to scrap down all the popcorn off the ceiling, which generated a ton of dust and debris. Vacuuming all the debris up with our Rigid vacuum was easy, however dust was still leaving the exhaust port. Opt for the more expensive filter if you want to trap all the dust, so your not dusting for a next year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product I have used this type before. It does the job at keeping the air clean and job area not so dusty. I used it for my basement renovation. It did the job with drywall dust except for the dust really clogged the filter so taking it off the vac was messy. I still recommend this product to others because it is better for your health not to use this vs the basic filter.

Purchased the 12 gal Ridgid wet dry vac and specifically this filter to clean up dust in our house from sanding and pulling out carpeting. The dust was everywhere. I am 100% satisfied with the filter. We really put it to the test (we also purchased the fine dust bag for the vacuum. I would highly recommend. It is easy to install.

It filters air inside a vacuum cleaner. Sure, it works. But I use my shop vac a lot and the filter needs frequent cleaning with a brush. Clean it out on a regular basis and you'll get longer life and a better performance from it.
