Questions & Answers

How do I use the "wet" feature on my Rigid 4.5HP 12 gal. wet/dry vac.?

I purchased it many yrs. ago and have mostly used to clean out my chimney. Would like to clean some area rugs.
Asked by: joy
You need to remove the filter before using your vac in wet mode. Everything else should be the same.

does it need to have a filter in it in order to vacuum water or liquid? If so what filter will i need to purchase?
Asked by: Reiser
Forgot all conflicting answers! Take the filter off for liquids. You will ruin your air filter if you use it for liquids. You won’t need to buy a “ wet” filter. There won’t be any air coming out of vaccum ( not enough to warrant a filter) while vacuuming liquid. Without filter it will hold quite a bit of water. During my 69 years I have realized that the weight of water in a larger vacuum is more than most people want to empty. Warning! Don’t try to turn knob (appearing to be a knob) on bottom of filter. You push in on knob with your thumb while pulling up on handles of filter to remove filter on this model. Don’t buy brush filter until Home Depot fixes it, it is defective. Home Depot, when are you going to have a working brush attachment.

4 Gal. 5.0-Peak HP Portable Wet/Dry Vacuum is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2263.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I own a painting business and have purchased about 8 of these over the last 15 years. I use them ... I own a painting business and have purchased about 8 of these over the last 15 years. I use them almost every day, so they get heavy use. The switches go out after a few years and the plugs often go bad. Also, it is really unfortunate that this vac no longer comes with a brush attachment. This is the attachment I use the most. To buy brush attachment for this vac is way over-priced. You have to buy them with another tool/attachment, and it costs about $13-$14. I would think in today's world, were we can get seemingly everything from china so cheap, one could buy brush attachment for about $5. Also, the vac no longer comes with a diffuser. I really need a diffuser; it prevents the exhaust from acting like a leaf blower and knocking over furniture and other items in homes. The hose is thin and bends/kinks easily. These are things a professional needs. Other than that, good shop vac. Easy to carry or use on wheels. Powerful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Portable Wet/Dry Vac It's a great vac with lots of suction. It's small enough to carry around from job to job. The height of this vac is listed wrong. It is listed as 14.5" but is actually more like 16" without the extension tube stored which would make it even taller. Rigid Web site lists it as 16.75" You can use any of the 2.5 inch hoses and attachments. The hose that is sent has a built in reducer on the end. The hose that comes with it, is a bit stiff as some of the other reviews have said. There is a place to store all of the attachments, power cord, and even the hose. The pictures never show the hose stored. Maybe because it's not the greatest storage of the hose. According to the instructions, you wrap the hose in a loop twice and connect the two ends together then wrap in the same location as the electric cord. The problem is that the hose is made so cheap that it will collapse and kink if it's rolled that tight. So I do almost the same thing but just don't connect the two ends so that the loop is not as tight as to start kinking.

DO NOT FALL FOR THE LIFE TIME WARRANTY the locking nut and I mean locking nut that holds the air filter would not come loose even with visegrips, I could not clean or change the filter even once what a rigmarole... but on the other hand a lot of suction power when it was good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and very lightweight(12 lbs.) this vacuum has the suction of the bigger ones yet it is more... Small and very lightweight(12 lbs.) this vacuum has the suction of the bigger ones yet it is more maneuverable and gets into those hard to reach areas. I got mine on sale with the auto detail kit which has a variety of rugged tools and a super sturdy vacuum hose which is more sturdier than the original. The only thing I don't like about it is the clips that go over the tubes yo hold them together are a little flimsy and they may break at some point. Otherwise this vacuum with the optional (usually) detail kit is superb for $80!! I used to auto detail and I've read reviews from many auto detailers raving about how good this is. I compared several other wet/dry vacs to this and for the price and options, this is a winner hands down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good vaccum PROS--Have only used this vacuum for a week and so far so good. Suction is great, is kinda noisy but what wet vac isn't. I love the filter, really cuts down on dust especially when you use a bag as well...hose is long and the handy wrap around handle for storage of it is great. CONS-- The downfalls are the lack of accessories that fit!! Bought a floor attachment(like a beater brush on normal vacuums) and it did not fit the 1 7/8th hose, all the mlti adapters don't work either!!! Last ditch is the 3 piece hose adapter i will try tomorrow then i give up and will just make one..Wish the back accessory holder was a little bigger in back for attachments though. All in all a great little vaccum for messy reno cleanup....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for pet owners We needed a powerful but robust vacuum because we have parrots. Our main house vacuum works well but was constantly clogging on the feathers and bits of chewed wood all over the house. This wet/dry vac is perfect for us. It is small enough to maneuver around the house like our regular canister vac but the suction is strong enough and the hoses are big enough so that it picks up everything, everywhere. In fact, on some of our carpets we have to tilt the nozzle so that it does not latch on and drag the carpet. It does not do too well on carpet but that's what we have the regular vac for. This one is for the quick and coarse jobs. Like other reviewers have mentioned, the exhaust blows straight out the back of the machine so some care needs to be taken about where you point the machine. We might buy the extra exhaust muffler because of that. Bottom line: for the money this seems to be the best small but powerful everyday cleaning machine on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Vacuum Cleaner Ever! Hi, My husband bought this vacuum cleaner originally for his business but I have been using it at home as well. Every time I use the vac I talk aloud and thank the person or persons who invented it because this vac sucks up everything, and I mean everything. It never chokes, breaks, stops working and we've used it for at least 2 years now. We have just remodeled our kitchen and used it every single day for debris and dirt from the floors, counter tops and all, and it's just amazing. It might sound funny to go on and on about a vacuum cleaner but "small things" in life such as this product, can make all the difference. It shortens cleaning times and has a power like nothing else I have ever used before. We clean the cars and trucks with it, our garage and my husband takes it to work all the time. I don't need a product with several different features and what not. I just put the desired end on it, turn it on and whoooosh :). Thank you very much for a wonderfully made vac!
