How do you know when its time to change a filter?

Asked by Ed February 28, 2020

Answers

It depends on the type of material that you are vacuuming. In my work with ceramic kilns, I also use a filter bag for extra filtration with my HEPA filter. When the bag is full, I always remove the filter, put it in a garbage bag, and wrap the bag tight around my arm and bang the filter to remove as much dust and crud as possible before re-installing it and with new bag. I always wear a respirator when doing this so I don't breathe any dust. Periodically, I wash the filter with a hose. These filters are pretty durable. if the filter has a hole in it--it needs to be replaced. If you are working with toxic or gross stuff--replace it

Kinda stupid request; It would be better to ask about the shop vac itself, which I am disappointed in!! There is not a good shop vac on the market that I am aware of. ShopVac Brand is horrible, I owned a dozen of them, all crap. Now this Ridged fails to impress!! Wand has clips that catch on everything, big nuisance. Has a window in hose which will not stay put, open or closed, big nuisance. The filter is an odd size and so the normal size in my stock are not used. Not advertised on box so one can make an informed decision.

Ran the vacum for years with a standard filter and no bags, decided to try out the hepa filter with disposable bags. Haven't seen dust blow out the outlet yet, like I have before. Makes me alittle more comfortable with little ones in the house. I will not be goin back to a standard filter, but in conjunction with the bags I dont imagine replacing the filter anytime soon...
