cles of dust. The filter can be used for wet
or dry pick up. Handle the filter carefully
when removing

it.
Creases
in the filter pleats may occur
from installation
but creases

maintain
peak vac performance.

picking up dry debris.

Dry Filter
1, Some removal of dry debris can be
accomplished without removing the fil-
ter from the vac. Slap your hand on top
of the power assembly
while the vac is
turned off.

mulated dust, clean the filter in an open
area. Cleaning
SHOULD
be done out-
doors and not in the living quarters.
3. After filter removal from vac, remove
the dry debris by gently tapping the fil-
ter against the inside wall of your dust
drum. The debris will loosen and fall.

dust (no debris), run water through it as
described under 'Wet Filter".

that water pressure
from the hose is not
strong enough to damage
