Questions & Answers

How do I remove the old filter? There is a plug or cap on top and I don't see how to remove it.

I need to change the filter. I have the new filter. There are no instructions on the box or inside regarding removing the old filter and attaching the new. It is really not self explanatory to me, perhaps because of the amount of dirt covering the old filter. However, I need help.
Asked by: MomofOne53
Yes I just bought this last week. It is a easy job. The thing is on a hub and doesn't turn or move. It only can work by pulling off the old filter and putting on the new one. At least that is the way for the VF3500 for the 4 Gallon Rigid Vacuum.

can I use this filter for water?

Asked by: Joe52571
No, and it is not recommended. I believe you would need to use the VF3700 for wet applications. The VF3500 can be washed, but must be dried thoroughly before being used again. That is why I have at least two on hand.

Will the VF3500 filter fit my WD06250 shop vac? If not, which filter will.

Can vacuum hose head tools be purchased individually?

Can I use the VF3500 to vacuum snow/slush brought into my garage by car during winter?

I bought the 4 gallon vacuum as that is all the room I have for storage. Since it was a "WET/dry" vac, I assumed it would work for water issues. I don't see a foam "water" filter available for my vacuum. Is it OK to use the VF3500 for the snow/slush purpose and/or do you make just a wet version for the 4 gallon vac? If not, would you consider it?
Asked by: Bluejay
No, for dry use only. They also sell filters meant for wet applications.

3-Layer Fine Dust Pleated Paper Filter for 3.0 Gal. to 4.5 Gal. RIDGID Wet Dry Vacs is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 270.

The only drawback is, when removing the filter for cleaning, this needs to be done outdoors. When removing the filter a great deal of dust will come loose from the filter as it is popped out of the vacuum.

It has stood up to my vacuuming chinchilla dust which is extremely fine and easily sent airborne. The dust is like talcum powder or silt. After filling a bag full of dusty animal droppings and litter, the filter was still clean and ready to go.

Once the dust gets into the creases it looses its suction. I bang out the dust and reuse it several times. I've purchased about 5 of them in the last 2 months working on a new building. I give it a 3.
