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

Asked by Caitlin April 30, 2020

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.

can it be used for dry cleanup as well?

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

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

It is such cheap foam that when placing on your vacuum drum, it tears. Waste of money.
