Customer Questions & Answers

Can you run the vacuum with the hose attached to allow continuous vacuuming and draining?

Asked by: Anonymous
No, but you can do a check for yourself, just take the drain cap off of the vacuum and turn it on. If there is still a vacuum at the hose it will do that.

It should fit all RIGIDs. If you ship to store and pickup there would be no shipping charges... and if it doesn't you can return in store no charge to you. They really should carry this in the store.

Most items can be shipped to the store for free, including this one. Home Depot, asks you to 'Select a Store', and one of the reasons for this is so they can check the inventory of that store at that time, to check if an items is stocked there AND to check IF it's in stock or not. If you will look just below the price of the item listed, they usually offer 2 or 3 options. Ship to home for free (with a $45 minimum order) or if your item is already over the $45 price point, ship to home for free. Ship to the store for free (almost every item can be shipped to the store for free regardless of the price point, if it's not a normal stocked item.. Or, pick up in store today, meaning they have at least one in stock at the time you opened up that particular page. If you will look below the PayPal logo, they will actually show you the inventory count that the 'selected' store has in stock at the time the page was opened or last refreshed. If you need 10 of the item and they have 2 in stock, then you know they do not have enough of what ever it is you want - UP FRONT (a feature I personally like a lot). I do agree that shipping items to home is another money maker for them, but it doesn't make them as much as most people think it does. When you consider they have to have an employee go find the item in their warehouse, bring it back to the shipping department, find a box or package envelope that it will fit into and arrive safely to you with all the abuse that USPS or UPS or FecEx etc.. will give it during the shipping process, pack the items (bubble wrap isn't free), seal up the package, print out labels, process the shipment through what ever service is used to get it to you, the actual cost of shipping it to you, Social Security taxes that the employer HAS to match, medical insurance (hopefully), warehouse space (space costs money - bank note payments, property taxes etc..), electric, warehouse lighting, heat, water, even bathroom supplies for the employees have to be considered (they sure are not free to them)... the costs of shipping even small items is pretty expensive to them. In Home Depots' case, they figure they can 'eat' all of those expenses as long at the item is sold for $45 or more (gives you an idea of the profit margin they are making on items). For items under that price point, they are just not making enough profit to be able to absorb the shipping costs and stay a viable business. Being the 'tight wad' that I am, IF the item is something I need, I often will look for other items that I need, especially if they are on sale (sign of a true tight wad LOL), to help defray the cost of shipping over several items or to get what I want, shipped free, by making their minimum price point to qualify for free shipping, or look at other retailers for other options available. NO- I DO NOT work for Home Depot, never have in the past either. I used to be in business for myself until disability took me out, and understand a bit of how this works is all... BTW, I agree with others, this item (hose to drain adapter) SHOULD BE A STOCKED ITEM!!! Not everyone can forecast a situation where they would NEED this adapter, but when they need it, they NEED it NOW, not a week or so in the future... HD would sell a lot more of these if they stocked them in their stores. Hope this helps some.....

Hose to Drain Adapter Accessory for RIDGID Wet Dry Vacs is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best excretory I’ve ever bought This helps with time and really saves your back, I don’t have to pull the vac to a place I can dump it, I just hook up the hose drain before I start with the job and I can drain the tank with a pull of the hand held nozzle wonderful.

Should be included as a part of vacuum when originally sold if it is not already. The water comes in faster to the vacuum than it goes out the hose, so starting and stopping is necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job as stated. The RIDGID Hose to Drain Adapter does the job as is stated in the writeup on said product. it workes as it should as long as you follow the rule of "GRAVITY". You must have the VAC above the area you want it to drain to work correctly, the hose must follow a down slope from the vac to work correctly. I think that the stores should have this product in stock to sell as they might sell more of them that way. The more customers know about this product it will increase your sales.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Shop Vacuum Accessory This adapter should be included with every shop vacuum sold or even used to replace the cap that currently ships with Rigid shop vacuums. The standard cap offers no benefit other than to keep the debris or liquids sucked up from flying out of the vacuum's drum and back onto the floor. Every winter when snow melts off of my vehicles water pools up on my garage floor. The local building department would not allow a floor drain in my garage when I built it, they said it was because of my proximity to a lake. So every time the water gets deep enough for me to need rubber boots to walk around in my garage, I'd vacuum up 20 to 25 gallons of water and dump it down my driveway because a shop vac with that much water is too heavy for me to lift and the result was an icy driveway. I conceived and thought about fabricating a part like this by cutting a hole in the Rigid original and expoxy-ing a hose fitting onto it, but as a last resort before I did I checked this site. I leave this adapter on all of the time and if I need to vacuum a liquid, I simply attach a garden hose and direct the fluid where I want it to be. See the original and the one I bought and you decide.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Neccessary Item, should come with the VAC This drain adapter is O.K,, but with a 2 1/2" intake hose my 14 gallon tank fills quickly, is heavy, and empties slow. The external threads on the unit are 1 1/2" Fire Threads. That's why nothing else will work. A Fireman's hose will work, but that is bulky. Another option is to buy a brass adapter with female fire thread, and a male National pipe thread (NPT). Than way you can hook up a large pipe/hose and empty the container quicker than a garden hose can. Problem solved!
