Hello Monica, Thanks for reaching out to us. Depending on what you are planning to pick up, there are 4 types of filters that you can use with your RIDGID 12-gallon vacuum.For standard or typical basement or garage dirt, you can use the VF4000. For fine dust, such as drywall or cement dust, you must have the VF5000. We also have a filter made of HEPA rated material known as VF6000. This filter is best recommended for picking up pollens and allergens. Lastly, we have VF7000 foam filter specifically designed only for liquid pick-ups or water-borne debris. These filters are regular items at the Home Depot stores. You can also order online on this page or at store.ridgid.com. If you have any other inquiries, you may call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID

Answers

Hello Jay, We highly recommend either the VF5000 3-layer fine dust filter or VF6000 5-layer HEPA medial filter for your RIDGID 5-16 gallon wet/dry vac to ensure dust will be captured.

The filters are the same as they've been for several years. I found the dust bag does not install on my 10-yr old vac as there are no inner ribs to attach it to. Verify your vac has ribs as in the attached photo.

Hello MacCookie, Only the filter will fit because your WD16650 was not designed to use any filter bag. You can buy the individual filter using part number VF4000. It's available at your local Home Depot store or on this website.

(What's this)
Good value with 2 bags and 1 pleated filter. When it's time to change your filter picking this up is a good deal. Creates 2 stage filtration in the Rigid wet/dry vac. Fits my Rigid bag fine. Didn't pull out after vacuuming. Dust isn't good to breath in and even if you use a good pleated filter you're going to be exposed to dust as emptying the canister releases a lot of dust. You'll still have to deal with dust when taking out a full bag but the inside of the vac will be cleaner when you need to handle it later. If you're using more expensive filters like the HEPA filter these bags will save even more money by preserving the pleated filter more. The new style of pleated filter slips on easily and stays secure without any tools. Bag goes on easily too, just need to make sure rubber slips in between the two raised portions. I found it helps to poke the perforations with my finger first so I don't have to force it on using the cardboard. Highly recommend using the bag indoors along with a filter. Just remember to remove and empty the canister before picking up wet stuff.

Great deal on a convenient combo pack of filter and two dust bags that will fit most units between 12-16 gal. We've had a 16-gal Ridgid wet vac for a number of years now, and I'm a big fan of the dust bags. Not only do they make emptying the unit so much easier, but they really do cut down on the amount of plaster or concrete dust that gets blown around during cleanup. (Not HEPA level by any means, but you won't see much dust hanging in the air.) The filter, too, is great, easily removed and reinstalled, and you can get some extra life out of it by taking it outside and banging off some of the really thick dust. Overall, just a great deal on a very convenient package. Highly recommended.

I rigid vacuum is likely the best unit made. We have several of these and they have held up like no other. I have used them for cutting grout out for a 900 sq foot kitchen multiple times. The vacuum's work so well and they run even when full. Keep a good filter on and it will run forever. They did not overheat even when they were packed with grout dust. I suggest getting at least one. Get a large one for bigger jobs and get a smaller one for every day type work.

(What's this)
These bags and filter are a must have if you’re doing a cleanup project indoors and want to make a quick easy cleanup. The bags are simple to install, you just snugly slide the cardboard flange over your vacuums inlet tub and basically set the bag inside the canister in the shape of a horseshoe. The filter simply slides over the air outlet that goes to the motor and your ready to use. The bags are very strong and hold a lot of dust and debris. The filter is very strong and high quality.

I took a chance hoping I could use these vacuum bags in my old rigid shop vac. The bag attachment instructions show an internal "nipple with ridges that hold the cardboard flange on the bag. Since my old vac doesn't have this feature the bags won't work on my vacuum. The filter on the other hand will work if I use the old spin nut to hold the filter in place. Check out my photos to help you decide if the kit will work on your vacuum

Hello HeavyKevy, Thanks for writing a review and we're sorry to have learned your disappointment. It's true that most of our old vacuums, including your model based on your photos, don't use filter bags. However, these filter bags are optional. Please ensure that the proper filter is installed, in good condition, and frequently cleaned to avoid performance loss. If you have questions, you may call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID Ridgid

(What's this)
I'm giving this 3 stars because the dust bags don't fit my Ridgid 16 gal. shop vac and there was nothing in the product description I was given to indicate how to check compatibility beyond the size of the vacuum. As noted on the packaging and my vac, the filter fits fine and installs easily. You just pull the old filter off of the white button and snap the new on in its place. The issue with the bags is they come with a cardboard collar that needs to be set over ribs on the inner inlet tube of the vac (see photo of bag). My inner tube is cut flush with the inner wall (see photo) and there are no ribs. My vac is about 10 years old. I went back to the store and checked out the current models and their inner tube is definitely different, so validate that your model has the ribs as shown in the diagram before purchasing.

Hello HomeDepotCustomer,

Thank you for writing a review and we're sorry to learn about your disappointment. Looking at the photos you included in your review, it appears that the unit you own has the suction port situated on the lid. Hence, these filter bags will not fit. Note that filter bags are optional for our vacuums. You may return the product to Home Depot within 90 days. For the filter only, the part number is VF4000. For any other questions, please call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com and we'll be glad to assist you.

I have always been happy with the performance of my Ridgid shop vac but emptying it often produced a mess. When I found these dust bags and filter I had to try them. I vacuum up a lot of sheet-rock dust and fine saw dust so when it came time to empty it I had to take the vac outside and dump it a plastic garbage bag. Now, I get to pull the bag out and simply drop it into a trash can. I believe the bag also acts as an additional filter which means less dust is returned to the air when I vacuum - win-win.

The bags work great for easy cleanup especially when sanding sheetrock or collecting moldy and mildewy debris. An extra layer without needing to buy a more expensive main filter. Be sure your vacuum has the double ring on the inside collar for the bag to be attached. The medium of the filter bag feels unwoven which does a better job at collecting fine particles. The regular main filter is standard. Inside diameter is 4 1/4 inches. Height is 8 5/8. The quicklock means you don't need the twist lock for it to stay in place.

The Dust Bags are an excellent complement to the vacuum. The standard filter works great on its own to capture small particles but combined with the dust bags they make it easy for clean up on particles such as wood sanding dust and sheet rock compound dust. The dust bags attach directly to the inside intake opening. Once filled will debris you simply remove it and dispose it for a dust free cleanup. The standard filter is great since you no longer need the nut to secure it. You simply install it like you would any other filter and the rubber seal on the filter make a snug fit onto the threaded shaft. I highly recommend this filter set for everyone using the Rigid Shop Vacuum.

(What's this)
These Ridgid filter kit comes with one standard filter and two bags. I own a 16 gallon ridgid vaccum and with some time the filters wear out. You can wash and rinse them out but as with many things they loose their strength. After I installed my filter which is as easy as pushing it into the housing I installed a vaccum bag. I immediately felt a difference in the performance of my vaccum. It sounded better and the suction level increased. These will extend the life of your vaccum motor. These are large bags and filter so check to make sure they will fit your vaccum.
