The RIDGID 3-layer pleated paper replacement filter is designed for your RIDGID wet/dry vacuum (3 - 4.5 Gal.s) to capture fine dust and trap particles such as mold, fine powders and cool fireplace ash. The 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. This product offers one 3-layer fine dust filter that 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, value pack sizes (4-count and 8-count) are available to accommodate a variety of project needs. With its patented Qwik Lock feature, the filter simply snaps on or off the 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.
