Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought to use to remove water. Had to buy a... Bought to use to remove water. Had to buy a separate filter specifically for water removal. I like the various attachments. It is a very powerful vacuum. When using to remove water the vacuum practically dries the floor/area as well. If water is under something like between wall or under a baseboard it does a great job of pulling the water out of small spaces. Has a nice drain at the bottom but sometimes I just tip it into a bathtub or shower instead of trying to roll it outside to release the drain. I store the extra attachments inside the vacuum. The hose fits nicely around the top. I can roll the entire set into a closet. Glad I bought it and has come in handy more that once. Great value for the money.

So this is a wet/dry vac that only comes with a dry filter? Do you need to buy another filter to vacuum wet? Do you need to also buy bags, or you don’t need them? 

Asked by: Bob27
you don't need to buy bags that's for sure , I have used it on a wet floor with no issues. I don't know if there is a special wet filter

The vacuum didn't come with a wet filter. But the instructions say you can use the dry filter for liquids up to 2 inches ( 5 cm) and to remove the dry filter for more than 2 inches of liquid. Do you NEED a wet filter?

Asked by: Danny L
Hello Danny L, It's true that the vac can be used with the original filter for small volume of liquid pickups and remove it for large amounts. If your vac is used more frequently for wet pickups or you're picking up mostly dirty liquids, we highly suggest getting the VF7000 wet foam filter to further protect the motor. 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
