The 3-layer filtration system captures fine dust and traps particles such as mold, fine powders and cool fireplace ash. The replacement filter can be washed and, if dried properly, reused. Changing shop vac filters often is strongly recommended to increase the vac's performance and to help extend vacuum life as it protects the motor from harmful dust and debris. The 3-layer fine dust filter fits RIDGID wet/dry shop vacs 3 Gal. to 4.5 Gal. and should only be used for dry pickup. RIDGID provides other filtration offerings, including VF3600 HEPA Media Filter (sold separately) and VF3700 Wet Filter (sold separately), depending on the job application and type of cleanup mess. Also, a value pack size of 8-count is available to accommodate the job or project need. With its patented Qwik Lock feature, the filter simply snaps on or off the shop vacuum for easy cleaning and to quickly switch filter options.

This product works really good when its new. 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.

poor design
i have multiple ridgid vacs that use this filter size/design. eventually it will collapse vertically (longitudinal axis) preventing a seal at the base of the vacuum blower. last one blew dry wall dust participles all over my bedroom.
