Great for drywall dust
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.

    The RIDGID model VF5000 fine dust wet/dry vac filter works wonderful. I've rinse and let the filter fully dry for reuse once so far. The QwikLock fastening makes it super easy to install and remove from the filter cage, so no more using a filter plate nor screw nut. I have used the filter for many drywall and sawdust clean up. It's very functional!! The filter fits 5-20 gallon wet/dry vac. Very easy to install into your wet/dry vac.

      Ultimately no, I would recommend this one for what I was doing. We decided to scrap down all the popcorn off the ceiling, which generated a ton of dust and debris. Vacuuming all the debris up with our Rigid vacuum was easy, however dust was still leaving the exhaust port. Opt for the more expensive filter if you want to trap all the dust, so your not dusting for a next year.

      Great replacement filter
      This is a replacement for the old paper filter. Having had this type of filter before, I couldn't do without. The washable feature is what I was really after.

      Excellent product
      Can't beat it for keeping the dirt IN your shop vac vs shooting out. Long lasting too. Excellent price at Home Depot

      Nice to have a choice
      It's good to have a choice in different filtrations. I'm able to switch between them depending on the type of dust, etc., that I will be vacuuming.
