What is the difference between the vf3500 (blue)?

Asked by Art August 9, 2018
3
Answers

Hello Art, The main difference is the level of filtration. VF3400 is a 1-layer standard filter for sawdust and general debris. On the other hand, VF3500 is a 3-layer fine dust filter designed to pick up drywall dust, cement dust, and fine powders. Note that both of these filters will fit RIDGID 3 to 4.5 gallon wet/dry vacs. Thanks, RIDGID

Can this filter be cleaned with water and reused?

Asked by 1011 July 26, 2018
5
Answers

Yes, you can clean this filter with water, but it’s not going to work like new. It won’t regain as much suction power as a new filter. My theory is that the fine particles get trapped and caked in the paper element, reducing suction power; especially if re-started while still wet. In a pinch, however, it’ll do. Cleaning with a brush and/or compressed air is the next best alternative.

No clue, all you have to do is Google your GC100 and find out which filters are compatible. Then once you got the model number of the filter do a Google search and see who has it at what price.

Great quality. I use these on black fireplace soot. Vaseline or grease the seal surface of the rubber. 100% of the dust will be trapped. I use 3 of these vacuums and same filter on all. Cleaning the filters once a day . Tap tap sweep off the crud. These easily last 6 months when dry swept cleaned . Water wash is fine to but need to let filter dry . Fragile when wet.
