Table of Contents
Operation (continued)
WARNING: Do not operate without
filter cage and float, as they prevent
liquid from entering the impeller and
damaging the motor.
1. When picking up small amounts of
liquid the filter may be left in place.
2. When picking up large amounts of
liquid we recommend that the filter be
removed. If the filter is not removed, it
will become saturated and misting may
appear in the exhaust.
3. After using the Vac to pick up liquids,
the filter must be dried to reduce the
risk of possible mildew and damage to
the filter.
4. When the liquid in the drum reaches a
level, the float mecha-
nism will rise automatically to cut off
air-flow. When this happens, turn off
the Vac, unplug the power cord, and
empty the drum. You will know that the
float has risen because Vac airflow
ceases and the motor noise will
become higher in pitch, due to
increased motor speed.
IMPORTANT: To reduce the risk of
damage to the Vac do not run motor with
float in raised position.
