Questions & Answers

What is the amount of decibles reduction associated with use of this product?

Interested in large application, and wondering if there is a discount for a larger purchase. Thank you, Mary
Asked by: 1mom
I used a decibel meter (professional grade used for tuning audio systems) and compared the difference between using the muffler and not using the muffler. The vacuum I used was a Rigid 10 Gal. 6.0 Peak HP Stainless Wet Dry Vac, and I stood 5 feet away from the vacuum when conducting both measurements. For reference, 6 decibels is considered "twice as loud" or "double the volume". The difference was 1.2 decibels. Basically, the difference between using the muffler and not using the muffler is equivalent to the noise of a toilet flushing vs. the shower running... not much.

Does this affect the suction power of the Vacuum?

I am trying to use 20 feet of extension wands on the other end and wondering if this should be removed to get better suction from a long range.
Asked by: ACss
No noticeable difference on my 14 and 16 gal Ridgid shop vacs when using longer hoses and or wands. I frequently use 27' of hose and two or three wands which does reduce suction but allows enough for heavy DIY project cleanups. Muffler/diffuser doesn't make any noticeable difference in suction. It does reduce exhaust from stirring up debris and lowers, diffuses, vac sound. All four of our Ridgid shop vacs have a muffler diffuser they work so well, especially reducing blowing dust when cleaning inside homes. Recommend this economical Ridgid accessory.

Asked by: Gordie
I’ve had this on my vac for several years and have not felt a need to clean it. It is really a diffuser for the air flowing out of the exhaust port. That air flow is relatively clean due to it passing thru the filter first. The only thing that would get to this are small particles that are too small for the filter to catch. I’m just guessing here but I’d image they get blown thru the diffuser.

This accessory intrigues and confuses me. Based upon comments, noise reduction, maybe. But for air diffusion (i.e., catching particles that will fly out of the exhaust?) - do you need this if you purchase the dust bag for the vac? If dusts come out of the exhaust port even if you use the dust bag (which I do not like that idea), then that means that the black filter at the end would need to be cleaned periodically. So how do you care this accessory?
Asked by: Dee
The only dust coming out of the back port is super fine dust that the filter doesn’t catch. So you will get some depending of the filter being used. What people are trying to say is that if there is dust in your shop or stuff behind the exhaust port it will get blown around. So basically stirring up dust in the shop. This device doesn’t seem to reduce the noise of the shop vac BUT it diffuses the air stream coming out of the exhaust port so it does blow things around as much.
