Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone should have one of these! I am the Support Specialist who orders items for the Family Homeless Shelter, where I work. We have overflowed toilets and other water disasters from time to time. I have one of these at home so I am well aware of the quality of this product. I had to fight to get one for each of our family shelters and am happy that I prevailed in obtaining this extremely useful product. It's easy to assemble, easy to use, and worth every penny! It takes care of water leaks, spider webs, dirty storage spaces, and just general cleanup. I would buy another one in a heart beat! Every home should have one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value oroduct My only complaint is that I wish there was a way to see the water level inside the wetvac so one knows when it needs to be emptied. The only hint it is full is when water starts leaking out the hose inlet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Batteries This product did not come with Batteries, we had to purchase them separately with a charger. This should be highlighted prior to the purchase.

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: 2019-03-18

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".
