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: It is necessary that a dried filter is
used to pick up dry material. If you use
your Vac to pick up dust when the filter is
wet, the filter will clog quickly and be very
difficult to clean.

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
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.
