It will shorten the life drastically. There is no reinforcement on the inside and the filter nearly collapses. One of the layers on the inside partly washed off. If you want to wash filter get the Gore.

Just like a corded vacuum!
Customer review from ridgid.com logo
I've had this for about 4-5 months now and I love it. It's real nice to not have to plug it in so the time. That said, I do wish that it was a hybrid that gave an option to plug it in, cause I don't always have available batteries with enough juice. Also, get yourself a couple 9Ah batteries. They give it more power and they last A LOT longer! I ended up buying 4 9Ah batteries so I can keep rotating them. It makes a world of difference compared to the 4Ah batteries that I started off with, with this vacuum.

Lightweight and portable
Customer review from ridgid.com logo
This vacuum is great for portability and movement. The fact there are no cords helps you get around and do your job without getting tangled up. Two things it could use as upgrades is a drain plug and an option to plug in if the battery drains. I bought two 9AH batteries so I never really run out. This vacuum is a revolutionary item to have in your tool shed/garage.

I have used this filter to clean up drywall dust in my Rigid shop vac over the last 4 years. This filter has worked great for this application. It is easy to install. This filter has met my expectations and there isn't anything that I dislike about it.
