What is the right way to wash these filters?

Asked by Whitey July 23, 2016
10
Answers

It was winter, couldn't blow it outside but I vacuumed the filter with another vacuum I had. You could then wash it if you wanted to. The material isn't really paper & it's durable.

Does the WR4000 filter include the cap that the nut tightens onto?

Keep the nut you already have... they are reusable forever.

Should Filter be removed to vacuum wet?

Asked by Kipper April 5, 2016
6
Answers

No for small amounts. Yes for large. Although operating without a filter risk damaging vac motor. "If you're picking up small amounts of liquid, the filter may be left in place. For large amounts, you can remove the filter or buy a separate wet foam filter VF7000 to further protect the motor." Rigid states. I would not risk vac'ing without a filter. Rather than switch filters, I leave the wet filter on and use a bag when vac'ing dry debris. Much easier emptying, leaves bin and filter clean, increases filter life immensely, and I always have a wet filter ready to go! Easier and economical for DIY projects. Plus, saves time not needing to change or clean filters while maintaining great suction. Bags are great!

Does this also need a paper sweeper bag inside for picking up fine ashes.

Asked by Dee December 13, 2020
6
Answers

Hello, Thank you for your question! Yes, this will need the filter bag since this VF4000 Standard Filter is not designed for fine ashes. Or, you could upgrade to VF5000 Fine Dust filter instead. We don't know the model number of your vac, but you could contact us directly to confirm whether your model can use a dust collection bag. Most of our RIDGID vacs with the suction port on the drum can use a filter bag. You may call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID Wet/Dry Vac Customer Support

Is there any other way to pick up dry if you don't have a filter

Asked by Vicki May 25, 2018

Answers

Hello Vicki, We're sorry there is no other way to pick up dry materials without a filter. It's important to have the filter installed in the vac for dry pickups as it stops any dirt or debris from entering and damaging the motor. Thanks, RIDGID

Does not fit the VacMaster wall mounted vacuum
I purchased the wall mount VacMaster vacuum from Home Depot online. The order system recommended I also purchase a 2-count package of replacement filters (Rigid brand). I thought that would be a good idea. It wasn't. These filters will not fit the VacMaster vacuum. The Vaacmaster filter is open on top and bottom, the Rigid ones suggested here are closed on top and so cannot fit. (see picture attached) I gave the filters high marks for the review because I suspect they work well in OTHER vacuums but not the VacMaster wall mounted one.

Thus filter is more than adequite for shop and jobsite work. It fits tightly on the vac so there is no leakage around the filter. I use it for collecting dust from sanders and picking up dust that my larger dust collection system misses from my jointer, planer, table saw, etc.

the 1-layer everyday dirt pleated paper filter fits perfectly on my 5 gal rigid wet dry vacuum. very easy to install, just unscrew the nut at the bottom of old filter, slide it down and install new filter, screw the nut on and done! takes mere minutes and you are ready to vacuum. there is no dust escape with this filter, it is contained in the vacuum holding tank. i have had this for about a month and love how well it works and meets all my expectations you may want in a filter.

Though it is a different design compared to the original, it works perfectly. Original design, as shown in photo, is open on both ends and utilizes a separate plate to seal the bottom of the filter. The new design has the plate built in and works fine.

This RIDGID wet/dry vac filter is very easy to exchange so it’s a breez to remove and clean between usage. This is the 3rd filter that I’ve replaced in 3 years. I clean the filter after every use and for at least a year of moderate service, the performance of my vac and this filter has exceeded my expectations.
