Customer Questions & Answers

Can I use this filter with a bag?

Asked by: NathanF
Yes. When I bought my RIDGID wet/dry vac, it came with a filter + bag. Last week I replaced both but bought the more expensive Allergen pleated filter. Much better at filtering drywall dust.

I am using a palm sander to sand paint off of woodwork and will have the WD09350 shop vac hose to collect the output. Will this work well?

Can the filter be cleaned once it becomes loaded up? Does putting water in the bottom of the vac help?
Asked by: Daniel
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID! If you are doing a lead paint renovation project this is not recommended. There is a different model of HEPA vacuum needed for that kind of job. For the other question, yes the VF6000 filter can be cleaned and wash. 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. Regards, RIDGID

Asbestos

Can I use 5-layer allergen filter to clean up asbestos in the basement? I already removed vinyl tile that has 2 percent asbestos but none asbestos for black mastic. Before I remove the vinyl floor, I spray water all over the floor. Now I want to make sure that there are no asbestos leakage. I thought maybe I vacuum using 5-layer allergen filter. What do you think?
Asked by: fairlawnfairlawn
The good news is the asbestos your worried about should well bound in the vinyl compound of the tile. The danger of course is in releasing dust and without completely pulverizing the tile that should not occur. Using this with the intent of collecting asbestos is a mistake. Professional asbestos vacuums are carefully engineered and tested to meet certified levels of filtration that no shop vac will achieve.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Money and Effectiveness Thirty dollars for a filter is alot of $$ for a product that may or may not be great. I put it on my vacuum and started cleaning but the airflow out of the vacuum was a whirlwind of dust flying through the sunshine rays. I checked to make sure it was tight and tried again with the same results. I think the vacuum is pulling air around the filter seal or something. If it did cut down everything flying through the air. My environment has to be free of floating contaminates so the paint work I do will look flawless :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good filter but expensive for a non-tested and certified HEPA filter This HEPA filter is not tested and certified and so it is overpriced for what you get. It helps with fine ash to have its small particle trapping but do not think that this filter in a shop vac will quality for the EPA lead paint regs as it will not. The pleat design does not self clean so periodically i have to empty out the pleats by hand.

We did a basement remodel and had to remove drywall which is a dusty proposition. I used and reused the filter multiple times cleaning it outside with some compressed air between empties. Totally satisfied, it did a great job filtering the dust particles from the air.

It's worth the extra $$ to get my job done smelling clean. Before, with the regular filter it smelt like dog, or dirty gross and it lingered. These 5-layer filters are really great! no smell.
