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...

Vacuums - The most incorrectly used tool ever.
5 stars for the filter. I cannot prove it is HEPA, but assuming it is. Vacuums are not as straightforward as all contractors and DIYers seem to think they are. You can't just grab a shop vac and suck up drywall or concrete dust without understanding how vacuums work. You need 3 things to vacuum fine particle dust properly. 1. Hepa Filter barrel. 2. vacuum bag to protect HEPA. 3. a primary collection system consisting of a bucket and a vortex centrifugal dust extractor.

    Only filter that stops the extremely fine dust found in working with drywall. I have reused these filters after knocking the dust off outside into a barrel outside- must wear breathing protection. Invested in the collection bags that fit inside the vacuum ( still need this filter to collect the finest dust) to reduce the frequency of buying these expensive filters.

    I had concrete work in the basement which caused dust all over. This filter along with the paper collection bag were the BEST! Highly recommended!
