Rated 4 out of 5 by from Name brand product with good reviews The only problem I experienced was the suction when When using the extension tubes. It is very difficult to To pick up small pieces of debris unless you place the tube Tube flat over the debris. You cannot angle the Tube when vacuuming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great handle with cord wrap I like the cord wrap so that it doesn't get tangled. I also like the locking hose feature that keeps the hose in the vacuum when you tug it around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job Have used Ridgid vacs for a long time. This one is a replacement for the vac that my son “borrowed”.
Date published: 2019-06-14
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job Sucked up water quickly. Should include a crevice tool because wider heads can’t get into corners. Easy to assemble. Lightweight and very maneuverable.

drianage plug size ?

what is recommended to attach a hose or pipe for drainage with my Rigid 9 gal wet/dry vac ? Or what size adaptor ?
Asked by: Bran
the hose size is 1 7/8" diameter exactly
Answered by: DIYmikey

Where can I get an adapter that fits the 1 7/8" hose? I want to attach the unit to an outlet port from a tool.

Ridgid does not sell an adapter for 1 7/8" hose. Their alternative is to buy another hose that is 2".
