  • Great replacement filter

This is a replacement for the old paper filter. Having had this type of filter before, I couldn't do without. The washable feature is what I was really after.

Pros Durable, Easy to Use, Looks Great, Easy to Install, Easy to Clean, High Quality

  • This filter is very easy to clean, when using a air hose outside,but remember to stay down wind when cleaning

This filter performed better then I had expected. I used it to clean out a 150 years of build up of dust,dirt,and coon waste(dryed) in the rafters of an old Church. I never even had to use a dust mask during the entire process. Then using compressed air for cleaning the filter never damaged the cartridge. This is an extrem plus because it allows me to use it over again.

  • Great Filter for a Great Vacuum
  • August 23, 2010
  • Recommended Product

This filter has been used again and again to capture sand, drywall, spackle, spiderwebs, and traces of insulation. It does a wonderful job preventing the dust from recirculating into the air. I feel confident that this filter is helping to keep my breathing air cleaner. It lasted through some tough jobs and could have lasted even longer, if I hadn't vacuumed up some questionable materials.

The RIDGID model VF5000 fine dust wet/dry vac filter works wonderful. I've rinse and let the filter fully dry for reuse once so far. The QwikLock fastening makes it super easy to install and remove from the filter cage, so no more using a filter plate nor screw nut. I have used the filter for many drywall and sawdust clean up. It's very functional!! The filter fits 5-20 gallon wet/dry vac. Very easy to install into your wet/dry vac.

When opening my vacuum to clean out yesterday, I knew for sure that I would need to replace filter, no way would it clean again. But then I have been using & cleaning for a couple of years! Great performance, used for massive amounts of dog hair (2 German shepherds!), Numerous remodeling jobs (with lots of drywall dust) along with the results of my granddaughter getting ahold of a full container of baby powder (a mess you want to avoid at all costs!) We even soaked in bleach water after it seemed to acquire a weird odor! Will definitely be replacing with the same.

  • Picks up fine drywall dust easily

In doing a kitchen remodel we started with out regular shop vac filter. After we realized that it was pretty full, I decided to purchase a filter designed for fine dust. This product works great and picks up every little bit of drywall dust. I would recommend this product.

I use this in a shop-vac with a vac-sander for sanding drywall plaster. Keeps the customers happy that there isn't a mess and the filter makes sure none of the particles get blown back out. Good deal!
