Customer 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.

Will this filter fit my Rigid model WD0800 vacuum?
Asked by: Art
I use in the 5-gallon Ridgid vac. However, the product Iinformation at https://www.ridgid.com/us/en/vf5000-filter describes is use for Rigid vacs volume 5-gal and greater. Because your vac has an 8-gallon capacity, the informaiton provided (no personal experience) leads me to conclude that YES, this filter will fit your eight gallon vac. It's axial dimension is the largest available, with the axial dimension being smaller to fit into vacs of smaller volume.

3-Layer Fine Dust Pleated Paper Filter for 5.0+ gal. RIDGID Wet Dry Vacs is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 211.

Craftsman vacuum. I have not found a Craftsman brand filter with a 1/2 micron rating. I clean up a lot of sheetrock dust often inside of homes being lived in. This filter keeps that very fine dust from passing through the vacuum and right back out into the room, this is very nice when it is time to clean-up the job site.

Even after the exterior of the filter is heavily loaded, the vacuum level is not impaired. When heavily loaded, I use (outdoors) both the handle and bristle end of an old toothbrush to remove the debris from the deep redess between the pleats. After years of use and such ocassional cleaning, I have not observed a tear/hole in the filter, I purchased this as a spare, so that I can use it without interruption for cleaning. The pleating causes a very large surface area. The differntial pressue indicator on the 5-gallon Ridgid vac is a good indicator of filter loadiing, and thus impaired vacuum strength.

I got it for really fine drywall dust and it does a great job at filtering that. (Regular filters miss a lot of this type of dust since it's extremely fine). I've used it for a couple of months. I took off one star since I'm not wild about the way the filter snaps in and out. Removing the filter tends to throw dust and debris all over when the catch pops off. A simple quarter-twist type of fastener would have been better IMO (although this is a very minor problem).

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.

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.
