Answer: 
I have 2 additional wet / dry vacuum's, and the noise level of this vacuum is about the same level as the other 2 I own. Perhaps it may be slightly lower based upon the fact it has a baffle with a filter on it for the exhaust, but any noise decrease was not really noticeable.
I feel the noise is a trade-off due to the fact that with this vacuum being mounted on the wall, it affords much more flexibility

I feel the noise is a trade-off due to the fact that with this vacuum being mounted on the wall, it affords much more flexibility and ease of use.
I can't offer any decibel numbers, other than the comparison's I mentioned.
Overall, I am very happy with this vacuum.

Can I use this shop vacuum for wall dust collecting while drywall sanding?

This question is from Store-N-Go 5 gal. 5.0-Peak HP Wet Dry Vac
Asked by

November 12, 2014
We are modeling the house. In order to prep the walls, we were thinking about sanding them, but don’t want dust in the house. Found a really nice dustless tool with great reviews, which, in addition, need shop vacuum to collect the dust. We went over bunch of shop vacuums, and by far liked this one the most. The only drawback is that in one of your responses you mentioned dust bags cannot be used with it. Does this mean I cannot use it for our intended purpose (collect wall dust)? Where and how is dust collected? If this model is not intended for this kind of usage, can you please suggest the one that is (we prefer smaller ones)?

Answer: 
I would suggest using a cyclone separator system for that, otherwise the pleated filter will clog up fast and put a strain on the motor. Recommend the Onieda Dust Deputy product. It will remove about 90 percent of the particles prior to reaching the vac inlet.

Answer: 
Yes, but you might want to get a filter that catches finer particles than the standard filter. They're available at HD.

Answer: 
Hi Lggr,
You may use this Ridgid vac for the drywall dust, however you must use the Ridgid Fine Dust 3-Layer Pleated Paper Filter.
This filter will prevent the dust from accumulating in the
motor and causing it to overheat and burn out.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 165 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good garage vac Got this to mount on the wall in my 2 car garage and use on the cars and floor. Have been using it for about a month now and love it. Minimal assembly, easy to mount, and has a place for all accessories. I had been looking for wall mounted vacs for several months and this was the best value out there. Would buy it again. June 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rigid store-n-go 5 gal wet dry vac Loved the vac, but it stopped working after 10 hrs of working September 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Basic Shop Vac Bought this mainly to keep my garage clean. It is compact, mounts nicely on the wall, and is easy to take on and off. The vac has a fairly powerful "blower' option that creates shock and awe with spiders hiding in corners. August 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good space saving shop vacuum This vacuum replaced a 15-18 year old larger vac on wheels. The wall mount really opens up the garage. Dismounted, it easily moves where it is needed. Great product! August 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic; beats all my ShopVacs to date Fairly light weight, trying to find wheels which will fit. A lot of sucking power for a small unit. I love this one. August 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Are You Ready 4 Power that Sucks I have not mounted this vacuum on the wall yet, I've been using it as a portable unit to vacuum my cars out. This little unit has great sucking power...The cord and hose are long enough I can vacuum my cars just outside our 20x20 garage door with no problems, There is an option to reverse the hoses so you can use the unit it as a blower instead of vacuum and it worked well blowing the dust/dirt and leaf debre back outside to my surprise. I do not have any negative feed back and Im pretty hard to please, so I do recommend this unit with a five star rating out of five...Rigid has a very good warranty as well...worth mentioning too... June 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good !! Product arrived quickly and was easy to set-up and install on the wall. Works well -- though I needed to purchase extra floor sweeper attachment that was not included. I like the lifetime warranty feature since I had had another wall-mounted vac by Craftsman that had no such long-term warranties. and eventually quit on me. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Shop and Car Vacuum Vacuum has good suction power and many attachments for various jobs. July 12, 2016
