I use it to vacuum up fireplace ash/soot and it seems to work without dust coming out. I also use the cartridge filter with the bag as extra filtration.

Will thse bags lower suction on the vaccum?

Hello MrT, Thanks for asking! There is a very slight reduction in the suction power in CFM as you are adding another layer of protection, but it's not noticeable at all.

I presume so, they fit my 14 gallon Ridgid vacuum. It says "12 to 16 Gal." in the description.

Can I use it several times?

No, It is pretty messy and difficult to empty it, when large debris cached in it. I do not recommend to use it more than once.

This bag is exactly what I needed to grind carpet glue off of a concrete floor. Without this bag the filter will clog immediately. My first bag worked as expected. My next three all popped barely less than 1/4 way through. Same each time, the whole seam on one side wide open. This added considerable amount of time to my job as I need to clean the shopvac and the filter. I couldn't stop my project so the next 2 bags I stapled each of the ends up the seam and it worked. Based on the comments this appears to be a design flaw that has not been addressed.

These filter bags do not fit the vacuum I bought. The website and the package on the bags say they fit the model vacuum I have, but they do not! If you look at the picture, you will see a curved flange that is attached to the place the filter bag is supposed to attach to....the bag won’t go over that..the vac does work without a filter though.

I like them and have bought a few of them but some of the bags have failed while using them when they are less than half full. They work a lot better than just a filter when vacuuming fine dust from Sheetrock or sanding.

Bags come apart at the seems while in the vacuum. For basically $10 a bag (which is ridiculous for a glorified coffee filter) i would expect a lot more. I have bought these several times and always the same results. Buy a different brand.

I have used these in the past with great success, used to pick up dust from drywall sanding. I brought again for same this time however the bag developed hole shortly after install. The hole was far and away from the inlet and was not near any point of friction. I felt that they were worth the money the first time now I know not to buy these again.

Cleaned my chimney and *zero* dust entered the room. My Ridgid vac already had the correct cylinder filter to stop chimney dust, but this bag did a fantastic job of keeping everything clean.

Requires some tricks to prevent leaks
They're cheaper than the triple layer filter so I figured I'd try them to help keep the filter clean even though I saw a video review that showed dust got through. Dust and larger particles got through on my first try, and I see from other reviews that this is common. When installing the bag it's impossible to see whether the lower part of the seal is in the proper place (between two ridges) unless you stick your head deep in the drum and try moving the filter out of the way, which I didn't try, or use an inspection mirror, which I tried the second time I vacuumed with the bag. First attempt: I installed the bag, being careful not to stretch the rubber seal more than necessary to fit it over the plastic tube. It looked sealed per the instructions, and maybe it was sealed all around, but after vacuuming I found dust on the filter, dust and larger particles in the drum, and saw that the bag became unsealed and had a clump of dirt coming out of the seal. It make me wonder whether the bags holds ANY fine dust. Second attempt: I pushed the cardboard piece that has the seal way further on the tube than you'd think is necessary. I over pushed in my first attempt too, but I knew I had to try something else this time. Then, to see whether the seal was in the proper place (between two ridges) I pushed the cardboard out a little. It looked good. Then I used an inspection mirror to check the bottom. The seal was in the proper place there too. I vacuumed for a little while, probably picking up slightly less than the first time. Then I opened the lid and the seal still looked good. Either the bag, vacuum, or instructions should be changed, but if you do what I did in my second attempt (see the photos to see how it should look) it may work out.
