A Dry Filter
Some removal of dry debris can be
without removing the filter
from the Vac. Slap your hand on top of
the power assembly while the Vac is
turned off.
For best cleaning results due to
dust, clean the filter in an
open area. Cleaning SHOULD be done
outdoors and not in the living quarters.
After filter removal from Vac, remove the
dry debris by gently tapping the filter
against the inside wall of your dust drum.
The debris will loosen and fall.
For thorough cleaning of dry filter with
fine dust (no debris), run water through it
as described under "Cleaning A Wet
A Wet Filter
After filter is removed, run water through
the filter from a hose or spigot. Take care
that water pressure from the hose is not
strong enough to damage filter.
