Product Details

Tackle any mess and extend the life of your RIDGID 5 Gal. and larger wet dry vacuum with the included standard pleated paper filter and wet application foam filter. The RIDGID 1-layer pleated paper filter is designed to capture everyday dirt and debris such as sawdust, dirt and typical debris found in a basement, garage or vehicle. The RIDGID Wet Application Filter should be used when picking up high volume liquids with waterborne debris. Both replacement filters can be washed and, if dried properly, reused. Changing shop vac filters often is strongly recommended to increase the vac's performance and to help extend vacuum life as it protects the motor from harmful dust and debris. This filter offering provides a solution for both wet and dry pickups and fit RIDGID wet/dry shop vacs 5 Gal. and larger. RIDGID provides other filtration offerings, including VF5000 Fine Dust Filter (sold separately) and VF6000 HEPA Media Filter (sold separately), depending on the job application and type of cleanup mess. With its patented Qwik Lock feature, the filter simply snaps on or off the shop vacuum for easy cleaning and to quickly switch filter options.
  • Includes 1 RIDGID 1-Layer Standard Dry Wet/Dry Shop Vacuum Replacement Filter (VF4000) and 1 RIDGID Wet Application Wet/Dry Shop Vacuum Replacement Filter (VF7000) for either dry or wet messes
  • 2-pack replacement filters offer you the option between wet or dry pickup
  • Fits RIDGID wet/dry vacuums 5 gallons or larger
  • 1-layer replacement wet application filter is best for heavy-duty liquid cleanup and adds protection for your vac during wet pickup by keeping waterborne debris out of the blower wheel
  • Standard wet/dry vacuum filter is ideal for capturing sawdust, general debris, pollen, and dust mites
  • Patented Qwik Lock filter makes installing or removing your shop vac filter quick, easy, and secure - no tools or hardware needed
  • Pleated filters can be washed and can be reused if dried properly
  • RIDGID always recommends the use of a cartridge filter for dry pickup and to replace filters often for optimal vacuum performance and to prolong the life of the vac

    Q:Do I have to use a filter for sucking up water?
    by|Jan 3, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello Nayy, Thank you for your inquiry about our products. When picking up small amounts of liquid (2 - 4 inches (5 - 10 cm) of liquid in the bottom of the drum), the filter may be left in place. When picking up larger amounts of liquid (more than 4 inches (10 cm) of liquid in the bottom of the drum) we recommend that the filter be removed or use the wet foam filter (VF3700/VF7000). If the filter is not removed, it will become saturated and misting may appear in the exhaust. When this happens, take the filter out and let it dry before reinstalling. Note that when picking up large volumes of liquids, the liquid in the drum may reach a predetermined level and the float mechanism will rise automatically to cut-off airflow. This occurs to avoid liquids from entering the power head. When this happens, turn off the vac, unplug the power cord, and empty the drum. Before storage, the filter must be dried to avoid possible mildew and damage to the filter. We recommend that you clean the filter and then let the filter air dry overnight. Make sure that after each cleaning, you check the filter for holes or tears. You will need to replace your filter if it has any damage. Please remember to never leave your wet /dry vac running unattended and to always use your wet/dry vac in accordance with the owner’s manual. If you have additional 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 or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID

      Overpriced piece of foam
      This thing is literally just a glorified hollow piece of foam that is glued to the plastic Ridgid adapter. It is literally way too expensive for what it is.

        Though it is a different design compared to the original, it works perfectly. Original design, as shown in photo, is open on both ends and utilizes a separate plate to seal the bottom of the filter. The new design has the plate built in and works fine.

        This RIDGID wet/dry vac filter is very easy to exchange so it’s a breez to remove and clean between usage. This is the 3rd filter that I’ve replaced in 3 years. I clean the filter after every use and for at least a year of moderate service, the performance of my vac and this filter has exceeded my expectations.

          Product fit the shop vac and is designed to last
          This was a replacement filter. Easy to install and provides great dust and debris filtering for my RIdgid shop vac. This filter is designed to last for years of use and is easy to clean. My first filter of this type lasted over 12 years for medium/heavy workshop and outdoor use.
