Wet Vacuuming Operation 

  Start by removing all dry filters (blue cloth filter & disposable bag). The foam filter must be 

positioned over the cage while vacuuming liquids. When filling the tank several times with liquid,
the foam filter will become saturated and misting may appear from the exhaust. If this happens 
please dry the foam filter to eliminate the misting. After finishing vacuuming up liquid, raise the 
hose to drain the excess liquid into the tank before

 

  The inside of the tank should always be periodically cleaned

 

 

Steps to clean foam filter after wet vacuuming use

                      Always disconnect the power before taking the head off the vacuum.   
                      Remove the foam filter by sliding it off from the cage. 
                      Shake excess dust from foam filter with a rapid up and down movement. 
                      Rinse foam filter under running water. 
                      Gently wring out excess water and allow to dry. 
                      Once dried the foam filter is ready to use again 

WARNING: WET VACUUM ACCESORIES SHOULD ALWAYS BE WASHED PERIODICALLY, 

ESPECIALLY AFTER PICKING UP WET AND STICKY LIQUID.

Emptying Liquid From the Tank 

  When you are ready to empty out the liquid in the tank please be sure to: 

                Disconnect the power by turning off the vacuum and taking the plug from the wall. 
                Remove the head of the vacuum by unclipping the clips on the tank. 
                Pick up the tank and pour out the liquid contents in a suitable drain. 
                Clip the head back on and start using your vacuum again. 
 

Automatic Shut-Off   

  When picking up liquids, the vacuum operates with a automatic shut-off. As the level of the liquid you 

are vacuuming rises, an internal float rises until it seats itself against a seal at the intake of the motor, 
shutting of suction. When this happens, the motor will develop a higher than normal pitch. Once this 
happens you must empty out the tank if you would like to continue using your vacuum. 

Blower Feature 

 

  This vacuum can be used as a powerful blower. To use your unit as a blower insert your vacuum hose 

into the top exhaust port 

(Figure 10)

.   

 

WARNING: ALWAYS WEAR EYE PROTECTION TO PREVENT ROCKS OR DEBRIS FROM BEING 

BLOWN OR RICOCHETED INTO YOUR EYES OR FACE, WHICH CAN RESULT IN INJURY. 

 

Storage 

  Before storing your vacuum away, the tank should always be emptied and cleaned. The power cord 

should be wound around the housing of the unit to keep it in the best shape possible. The accessories 
can be stored in their holders on the vacuum. Always dry the inside of the tank prior to storing away.
