CAN THIS FILTER JUST REPLACE THE PAER FILTERS AND BE USED TO PICK UP DRY MATERIALS?

Asked by Luke January 28, 2021
2
Answers

Yes, as long as the dry materials are larger than the pores in the foam filter. For example, drywall dust will go right through the filter. I use mine to clean out air conditioner condensate drain lines. Then, turn right around and clean out the leaves and debris in the outdoor unit.
