Having problems with your Ridgid 25648 Wet/Dry Vacuum ?

Water isdischarging from the exhaust of my new Ridgid Wet/Dry Vac

\015 I don't have the filter in because I thought that is for dry vacuuming. do I need to have the filter in? Thank you in advanceRobin McCarthy\015

Hi Robinm61,
\015\012I always have the filter in - - it helps protect the motor.
\015\012If you're going to vac liquids, I recommend use of an intermediate trap to\015\012stop most of the liquid from getting to my vac (makes clean-up a LOT\015\012easier). A cyclone-top (available at Rocker.com, for example) fitting on a 5-gallon pail works great. The\015\012liquid is mostly deposited in the 5-gal pail, and doesn't gum-up the guts of your vac. You need another section of hose, but that's another one of those tools that is hard to have too-much of. (Rockler also sells a nice hose as part of it's Vacuum Tool Kit - also at Rockler.com).

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance,

I have a new Hoover Dual V steam vac that I bought from a neighbor who only used it once. I have only used it once since then and it worked great. This time, because I am pregnant, I bought some non-toxic cleaner that was much thicker than the very watery Hoover soap. This vac has a wash option and a rinse option. The rinse option works (sprays and sucks properly), but the wash cycle doesn't at all-neither soap nor water comes out. Nothing comes out, but it still sucks. I took everything o
