Vacuuming Dry Materials

1. The filter must always be in correct
position at all times to avoid leaks and
possible damage to vac.
2. Your using your vac to pick up very fine
dust, it will be necessary for you to
empty the drum and clean the filter at
more frequent intervals to maintain peak
vac performance.

NOTE: A dry filter is necessary to pick up
dry material. If you use your vac to pick up
material when the filter is wet, the filter will
clog quickly and be very difficult to clean.
3. If your filter is wet but you need to use
the vac to pick up dry material, you can
quickly dry the filter by running the vac
10 minutes. The clean air rushing
through the vac will help dry the filter.

Vacuuming Liquids

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. When the liquid in the drum reaches a
predetermined level, the float mechanism
will rise automatically to cut off air-flow.
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. When this
happens, turn off the vac, unplug the
power cord, and empty the drum.
4. After using the vac to pick up liquids, the
filter must be dried to avoid possible
mildew and damage to the filter.
IMPORTANT: To reduce the risk of
damage to the vac, do not run motor with
float in raised position.

Emptying the Drum

WARNING: To reduce the risk of
unplug power cord before emptying
the drum.
1. Remove the lid. Pull the flexible latches
outward on each side of the lid to
release from the drum.
2. While holding the latches out, lift the top
assembly up and away from the drum.
