I use mine to suck up dirty water from my hot tub. It works great with this filter.

Is this only used for wet pickup or wet and dry

Only wet. There are 3 other filters for dry pickup the filter depends on the type (size) of the debris.

We have a 5 gallon Rigid wet/dry vac and it says this is the filter to use, however, when installed the vac doesnt close all the way?

With a small model vac you probably need the foam sleeve. Contact mfr. Or consult manual.

Is this item required in order to fully function the use of water or other liquid in a wet/dry vacuum?

Before I realized they made this, I used the paper one every spring to pump out the water from my pond. Trouble is, it was so dense, it pumped slowly and you had to throw away after. They get too out of shape when dry and they are not cheap either. This is porous and the water goes thru much faster, even when the leaves sucked up collect around it.

Will this work for my WD06350?

Sure, but it won't likely be as effective against dust and dirt as a paper cartridge filter.

Although it isn't made for our Craftsman 16 gal wet dry vac, the base stretches enough to put it on. Works fine. No filter plate needed.

I had some water in the basement so it was the perfect test site for the wet foam filter. The vac worked so much more efficiently with it than with the combo filter. With this filter the floater immediately shut off the vac when it started to fill with water versus the vac kind of shuttering to a halt with the combo filter. Very happy it was recommended to me by HD staff.
