I vacuum out my garage in winter. Sand and grit in the slush collect in the bottom of the vac over time. If sand gets into the pump, can I at least clear it out or is the pump ruined?

Answer: 
There is a strainer so any large material will get caught in the strainer. Find silt and sand will be pumped out with the water.

Don't even consider it. Look at the motor nameplate, it says in big black letters "Made In China". Impeller is cheap plastic, not Kevlar.

Answer: 
No, unless you pour water into the vacuum tank, I used it to clean out leaf debris in a pool and it worked okay with small particles. I would use a mess on the vacuum attachment to prevent large debris from clogging the unit.

Answer: 
VP2000 vac pump is an accessory designed for the RIDGID® wet / dry vacs. The VP2000 should be connected on the drain of the vacuum drum in order for it to work, it cannot be used independently.

Answer: 
To the best of my knowledge this can only be used on ridgid vacs. If the drain spout is the same thread then it will work that is all that maters when it comes to the attachment of this product

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!
Our RIDGID 11 to 20 gallon vacuum has a drain cap with threads that are spaced at 8 threads per inch and each thread is .05” wide and .06” high, with an outside diameter of 1.97”. If their non RIDGID vac drain cap is similar to ours then our VP2000 pump accessory should fit.
Regards,

Answer: 
My concern would be when the water level reaches the point where the pump starts to cavitate (no water), loss of vacuum at the hose would occur when both pressures would equalize through the inlet of the pump as it sucks air in via air gaps. Running the pump would only work as long as there is enough water to keep air from entering the path of least resistance at only one end. In other words there can Read More
My concern would be when the water level reaches the point where the pump starts to cavitate (no water), loss of vacuum at the hose would occur when both pressures would equalize through the inlet of the pump as it sucks air in via air gaps. Running the pump would only work as long as there is enough water to keep air from entering the path of least resistance at only one end. In other words there can only be one path of least resistance in a vacuum and that's the hose used to pickup debris/water. Opening another point for air to enter in the vacuum chamber would only compromise vacuum seal integrity rendering the vacuum process to cease working. Read Less

Answer: 
No, they state in the instructions that you have to turn off the vacuum while emptying. I did try it -- just to see what would happen. However, with the pump in place, the tank drained very quickly and I was able to get back to sucking up the water in short order.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Buy it A backsaver. Made getting water out of the basement much easier. I had a little trouble with the connect to the wet vac. Some leakage. More of a problem with the installer than the pump. May 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worth the money Ridgid has always made great products and this is one of them. Purchased to pump a small 150 gallon pond. Hooked up to my 14 gallon Ridgid shop vac and away it went. Worked great and didn't over heat. However, I do wish it pumped the water a little faster than it did. Overall a solid product. Would buy this again if need be. February 27, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not as usefull as expected Does not look like the unit will last very long. Not able shut off when water is gone April 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy install and works great A great addition for water pick-up. Attaches easily and empties the full vac in just under 2 minutes, which is less that 1/2 the time it takes to fill the vac. Hose attachment allows for sending water to any location up to 50 feet away. The included pump intake filter prevents large items from entering the pump, but will allow sand and other small objects to enter. Working is a sandy environment had no adverse impacts on the pump though. Very pleased with the operation. March 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product. Works well, just a little awkward. I have purchased a lot of Rigid equipment over the years. I have never been disappointed, especially with the lifetime warranty. I have had to return a defective battery for a drill, and they stand behind it. The pump is an add-on device. The awkward portion is once the wet/dry vac is filled with water, you then turn the pump on to empty the vac's tank. In order to produce the suction necessary, the pump needs to be closed during "water pick-up". It is a two step process. Shop-Vac has a similar concept with a built in pump where the water never goes in the tank; it is PUMPED directly through the vac and into the attached garden hose. There are pros/cons to both methods. Overall, this is the better way if you plan to use your vac as an all-purpose wet and dry vacuum. This way, you are only using the pump when necessary. November 23, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product-good price I bought this pump and mounted it to a Rigid 14gal wet vac. We live in North Central Arkansas and this past weekend we had a lot of rain. I used the wet vac 3 times to suck up water in my basement ,wheeled the vac to the door, attached a 25' hose and the pump emptied the vac in less then a minute.Worked great and would recommend this product to anyone with a water problem.I taped both the cords of the pump and the vac together, easy to move around. I have only used this product once but will not be without one in the future. December 29, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cheap plastic impeller broke..no parts available... Don't buy this pump it's junk. Home Depot(Ridgid VP2000 Pump), Vacmaster(PE401 pump), Workshop(MP2000 Multifit pump) and Sears(Crafstman Pumpout) are all identical but come in different color and made by the same manufacturer (Unknown). Problem is the cheap plastic impeller breaks rendering the pump unusable and no parts available by any of the retailers named above. You get what you pay for. February 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best water problem solution when cleanup starts. The pump is easy to install and easy to use. If you every have a water issue this is the pump to use. January 1, 2016
