Does the vacuum REQUIRE a filter if I want to suck water out of a clogged dishwasher hose/drain and then just dump it out? No debris, per se, just a little water.
Asked by: Curious
"REQUIRE"... no..... But there's some sort of valve that seems to be "built in" to the filter assembly that stops water from getting up into the works.... Without that, you could suck water through the impeller... this would be VERY bad....! Either pay Close attention, or use a siphon hose...

is this shop vac loud

Asked by: bob
Hello bob, This vac is not as loud as the other vacs in the market. The noise rating is only 78 decibels. Not to mention it has the Scroll Noise reduction feature and and a sound dampening foam in the powerhead to reduce the noise. Thanks for asking! If you have further questions, please call us at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'd be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID

What does the tumbler do?

It holds your coffee while you vacuum.

Do the casters lock so this vacuum won’t roll away on a slope?

Asked by: Jmstuff
No, but in my experience even the largest wet/dry vacuums lack a locking caster assembly.

RIDGID 12 Gal. 5.0-Peak HP NXT Wet/Dry Vac, Oranges/Peaches is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 406.

I planned to buy a smaller one, but this one was on sale at almost the same prices. I find the coffee thermos a humorous inclusion, but it is very good quality. It's been 15 years since I bought my last Rigid wet/dry Vac. They have substantially improved it. The connections holding the lid on when I lift it or holding the pipe in place when I pull it around are a huge improvement. I have 2 Aussies. They amount of fur they release every day is massive. No regular vacuum cleaner at any price can keep up with them without breaking quickly. My Rigid shop vacs clean up all the daily fur dump each morning in just a few minutes. The power of the Rigid with its attachments really do a great job getting the dog fur off the carpet as well as the construction messes created from re-tiling my front entrance. The Rigid sucks up all the pieces of residue and old grout wonderfully.

I chose it because of the reviews and price, and prior Consumer Reports ratings. Ridgid Wet/Dry vac is easily assembled and easy to use. I did find it a bit difficult to remove the attachments...probably due to arthritic thumbs. It is powerful, easily moved and easily cleaned. I have used the general cleaning nozzle and the upholstery nozzle. The upholstery nozzle works great. The general cleaning nozzle, not so much. Due to its angle, it is not easily used to vacuum vertical surfaces, or the floor. In addition, because there is no rubber gasket on the edges, it makes a high pitch sound like nails on a blackboard---even through ear protection! I have not used it as a wet vac. I give it 4 stars because of the difficulty in removing the attachments and the general cleaning nozzle. But overall, I am very please with my purchase.

This is my first Rigid vacuum and I only bought it because I couldn't find a single shop vac that was even halfway decent. At least this one came with a few attachments and the 2 1/2" hose. The smaller hoses are useless but now almost every shop vac comes with a tiny 1 7/8" or even a utterly ridiculous 1 1/4" hose. I used to go with Craftsman but they're quality is garbage now too. Like everything now a days the word quality has little meaning to any manufacturer. Once you unbox this unit it gives off the impression of only "how cheap can we make it before people won't buy it"? The entire vacuum and hose are made of thin plastic that you can feel flexing. The hose is so cheap you can collapse it just by squeezing it and where it joins the end piece that attaches to the vacuum it looks and feels like it'll start leaking anytime. Its laughable when you read the website description and then actually see the Rigid line of shop vacs in person at the store.

This was a great vacuum and we have purchased many for our company but now with the new design it is not worth it. The first thing to break on it are the handles that attach the motor to the bucket. When we purchased the new model and took it out and was putting it together we said " This is not going to last they will be broken within a couple of hours" and sure enough that is what happened. I hate the new design!!!!

The unit is of sturdy construction, but I have not owned it for enough time to offer any other opinion on its dependability or durability. I awarded the vacuum with three stars because of Rigid’s failure to provide any means of dampening or redirecting the substantially powerful exhaust stream emitted from the back of the unit. Other manufacturers provide some type of cap or diverter so that the exhaust won’t stir up any dust/debris on the ground behind the vacuum. The cap/diverter also serves to limit the excessive noise that results from the unrestrained stream. Rigid sells an optional “muffler” attachment for this unit at a cost of about $10, said muffler being nothing but the exhaust diverter which should have been included with the machine. I purchased ShopVac products for years because of their dependability and sturdy build. Unfortunately ShopVac no longer sells products with the solid construction offered by the Rigid line.
