Cleaning
and Disinfecting
the
Wet/Dry
Vac
To keep your Wet/Dry Vac looking its
best, clean the outside with a cloth
dampened with warm water and mild
soap.
To clean the drum:
1. Dump debris out.
2. Wash drum thoroughly with warm water
and mild soap.
3. Wipe out with dry cloth.
Before prolonged storage or as needed
(i.e., waste water pick up) the drum
should be disinfected.
Casters
If your casters are noisy, you may put a
drop of oil on the roller shaft to make them
quieter.
Storage
Before storing your Vac, the drum should
be emptied and cleaned. The cord should
be wrapped around the push/pull handle
and cord wrap, as shown and the hose
should be stored as described in this
manual. Accessories should be kept in the
same area as the Vac so they can be
readily available. The Vac should be stored
indoors.
To disinfect the drum:
1. Pour 1 gallon of water and 1 teaspoon
chlorine bleach into the drum.
2. Let solution stand for 20 minutes,
carefully swishing every few minutes,
making sure to wet all inside surfaces
of the drum.
3. Empty drum after 20 minutes. Rinse
with water until bleach smell is gone.
Allow drum to dry completely before
sealing the motor on the drum.

ment parts.
