Using the 6 Gallon Vacuum Cleaner
I'm planning to buy a vacuum cleaner that utilizes water only as filter. I do not wish to use any dust bag or paper filter anymore as dust particles accumulate on the exhaust portion and when you turn on the unit, you can see dust particles being emitted into the air. Is the 6 Gallon WDO671EXO fit for continued performance in the house using water alone as filter? TIA.
First this vac is not meant for water filtration. I have owned this vac before and I just use the finepartical filter for dust and just wash it off with a hose afterwards and let it dry for a few days. You should not run the unit without a filter or try to use water as one. I have also used the dust bags and have had great luck with them if you fill them to they are full. Hope that this helps you and just use the filer bags or a fine dust particle filter and dust should not come out unless you bang the filter inside the drum to get dust off the filter, then some might come out.

Ridgid 6 gal vacuum
Hi i have the 6 gallon vacuum 22.5 liters and i would like to know if there's a way of reducing the load noise from the vacuum
Thank you for contacting RIDGID® Customer Support. You could buy a noise muffler to connect to the blower port of the vac, but it reduces the noise by about 10% only. The part number is VT2525 and you can buy it at your local Home Depot or through Customer Service by calling 1-800-474-3443 or on-line at www.ridgidparts.com or www.homedepot.com If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to call us at 1-800-4-RIDGID (1-800-474-3443) or you may send your email to firstname.lastname@example.org Regards, RIDGID

How do you get the filter off? I've tried twisting the knob at the bottom, I don't want to break it!
It simply PULLS off.

What is wrong with the plowing feature?
I have been unable to find any information elsewhere. I have this model and it has been great this past year but recently every time I turn on the vacuum, it sucks (like it's supposed to) and it blows air from the blowing port. How can I fix this problem so only one of these features works at a time (separately)?
The motor must exhaust air from the unit. Home Depot sells a "diffuser" for $12 it just attaches to the the exhaust port an helps out tremendously. Good luck
