Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Rigid 9 gallon Wet/Dry Vac NXT is very easy to assemble and very easy to use. The Rigid Wet/Dry Vac NXT is a very good product, it helped us a lot when we had a over flowed toilet disaster & me & my son went to The Home Depot, to rent a wet/dry vac & we were told there were some on sale & the Rigid brand was recommended and it worked great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like ALL Ridgid products, it’s the BEST! Virtually all the power tools in my shop are RIDGID—what other brand would I choose?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed a medium sized wet/dry vac and bought this unit The place where I work utilizes the Ridgid wet/dry vac and it does a great job. Looked at a variety of wet/dry vacs and all of the ones I looked at had a 3 or 5 year warranty. The Ridgid unit comes with a lifetime warranty. Unit was eady to put together and operated flawlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product Well built. Strong suction. Easy to set up. Attachments easy to use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product will work but wished it nailed it Just bought at Home Depot and also purchased brush attachment separately but wished it had specified which one on box because it did not fit, hopefully I can find right one because I did not notice any other sizes while there. Also attachment without squeegee should have bristles. Sure I’ll figure out what to make work because I was looking forward to using on my cars interior as well.

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
Date published: 2017-09-06

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".
