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.

Customer Reviews

4 Gal. 5.0-Peak HP Portable Wet/Dry Vacuum is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2349.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid features and performance in a handy size. I pulled the vacuum from its box, wound out the cord and plugged it in, hooked up the included hose and started sucking up construction debris all within 30 seconds. The suction is plentiful and the unit is easily wheeled — or carried — around. It's light weight but fully able to handle the dirt, drywall, busted concrete, carpet fuzz, and wood chips that littered the bedroom floor and patio. My wife asked if she could use it as a blower, so I connected the hose to the exhaust port and she whizzed all around the patio banishing dirt and gravel and dog hair and dead leaves. The only hiccup was, towing the unit from the exhaust port, instead of the input port, doesn't allow the castering wheels to function properly and the unit, thus, pulls a bit awkwardly from a corner, which causes the large wheels to be dragged rather than rolling. No biggie, but the hose kept popping off the port, despite the included latching features. (She added some tape to keep the unit and the hose together.)

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.

I bought this yesterday to replace my similarly-sized Craftsman vacuum that would not easily connect to my table saw. I was very surprised about the increase in suction compared with the Craftsman. What a difference! I will miss the self-storing cord on the Craftsman, but the increase in performance is fantastic.
