Filter designed with foam material that filters waterborne debris.
Filter is best for high volume liquid pickups.
Pairing RIDGID filters and vacuums helps protect the motor from harmful debris, extending the vacuum’s life.
Detach the lid and place the motor upside down in the drum. Locate the filter cage.
This filter will fit your vacuum if your filter cage height is 8-9 inches.
Place filter on top. Press down near the center of the filter with both thumbs until the rubber opening of the filter locks in securely.
Press one thumb on the plastic tip and simultaneously pull up on the filter from the side tabs.
Filter can be lightly washed for reuse.
Filter installs easily with our patented Qwik Lock® system.
Buy more and save. Significant savings when purchasing the 6-Pack.
Compatible with RIDGID vacuums 5 gallons and larger.
RIDGID offers alternative filtration options for dry pickup, including the VF5000 Fine Dust and the VF6000 HEPA Media Filter.
Change filter when vacuum performance decreases.
Hello Jim, Thank you for asking. Yes, Wet Application Foam Filter (VF7000) will fit our RIDGID HD1200 12-gallon NXT wet/dry vac. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you have other questions. Thanks, RIDGID Wet/Dry Vac Customer Support
yes i believe this is the right model
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.
Sure, but it won't likely be as effective against dust and dirt as a paper cartridge filter.
Hello tky58, No, it will not fit the Bucket Head or Stinger vacuums. If you have further questions or concerns, 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
I empty out my pond every spring of the old water and dead leaves with my shop vac. The pond is 125 gallons. Only nuisance the tank fills up fast and have to keep dumping it. I would never do without the foam filter.
I'd take the vac piece in and ask associate to let you try it too see if it fit your dealt. Or do some google research to see id it was compatible with your dewalt.
I looked up the website email to contact the mfr. They need the model number for the Craftsman in order to confirm compatibility. Google Ridgid VF7000 then visit the ' Contact Us" link to send your model number via email. They also have a live chat option.
It fit and works great on mine.
With a small model vac you probably need the foam sleeve. Contact mfr. Or consult manual.
