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?

Answer: 
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.

I have rinsed this filter out with the garden hose and reused it over again. I also bought a second filter to alternate the use and make sure it dries out completely.

Answer: 
Yes this filter can be washed. Below is the simple instruction on how to do it.
First, we recommend that you clean your filter outside. Simply remove the filter and tap it on the inside of the drum or a trash can to knock any debris loose. You can also use a soft bristled brush and sweep the particles off the pleats or use an air compressor or blower to blow out the debris.
If you desire, the filter Read More

If you desire, the filter may also be washed. Run water through the filter from a hose or spigot. You will need to make sure that the water pressure is not too strong as it may tear or damage the filter. You will need to allow the filter to dry out before reinstalling.
Remember to check the filter for holes or tears – holes or tears could cause damage to the power head of your vac, and void your warranty. If you have any damage to your filter or want to maximize the performance of your vac, we recommend that you replace your filter on a regular basis.
If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to call us at 1-800-4-RIDGID (1-800-474-3443) or you may send your email to info@ridgidvacs.com.

Answer: 
The filter is just treated paper so I wouldn't expect it to take too many "washings" without failing.
I had a minor flood in my basement and vacuumed up several gallons of water. I emptied the vac and let the filter dry out (it was soaked) before re assembling the vac, and it worked again, okay.

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!
Yes it can be used for wet pickups. But if you want to extend the life of this filter you can use the VF7000 for wet application only.

Perhaps the pleated filter is the only one required to keep dust from the motor?

Answer: 
I think you may be missing the point -- the old pleated filter is removable and a new one easily attached (when the old filter is so filthy it looks unusable, or it got wet too often, etc. )

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 108 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great replacement filter This is a replacement for the old paper filter. Having had this type of filter before, I couldn't do without. The washable feature is what I was really after. May 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Not for Craftsman 16 Gallon Red Stripe (Well Almost) Thinking that since Rigid made all of Craftsman's shop vacs anyways and this filter looks like an exact fit, I bought it. Slipped it on and voila, it's about 3/4" too tall and the threads of the filter cage would not extend past the filter to screw the nut on. No worry - I put a zip tie thu the cage and out the hole with a plastic plate "washer" to secure it. Perfect. Works great. June 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works like a charm. No dust when I vacuumed after sanding dry wall compound. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shop Vac air filter Great Product - It lasts and is very durable. When it is dirty, your can clean the filter because of its quality. March 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good filter Filter was an easy replacement from the "stock" filter on my rigid shop vac. It appears to keep the suction long after my previous filter started to clog. March 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works Fine Works perfectly. Attached a little differently than the original but was easy just the same. March 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Air Filter This filter works good for containing drywall dust and it's blue. March 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Too Expensive I first purchased the VF4000 for my Rigid wet/dry vacuum but it didn't fit. It was reasonably priced at about $17.00. I took it back. I had to purchase the VF5000 filter. The VF5000 fits but (IMHO) at $23.00 it's way too expensive. If there are other models that fit, I didn't see them. In addition there's no cross-reference guide to help the customer choose. The only reason that I knew the VF5000 would work is because there's a sticker on the vacuum. This is the classic razor blade business model. Sell the vacuum at a reasonable price and then charge through the nose for the filters. I've had the vacuum quite some time. I don't recall the filters being so pricey when I purchased the vacuum. I just wonder why Rigid doesn't offer a range of filters that would fit my model vacuum. Lastly, I answered "yes" to the question "Would you recommend this product?" because there are no other choices if I want to continue to use my Rigid. The quality of the filter is very good but the cost seems high. March 15, 2016
