Besides, how does a shop vac work?
With a traditional vacuum cleaner, debris is collected inside a bag which, once full, is replaced. The air stream carrying liquid or debris through a shop vacuum flows over a round central reservoir that looks like a janitor's bucket. This wider area allows anything carried by the air stream to fall into the bucket.
One may also ask, what do you use a wet/dry vac for? Using the wet dry vac in bower mode can also be used to blow out leaves and debris for gutters and downspouts. Since it can suck up water, a wet vac can be used to clean up water spills and minor flooded areas. Other debris such as nails, screws and wood shavings can also be sucked up.
Also, can you use a shop vac as a regular vacuum?
The biggest reason to use a shop vacuum to clean your home instead of a regular vacuum cleaner is that they're more durable. Also, a really good reason is that they can cost less than the more expensive and fancy vacuum cleaners you see the commercials for. You can also suck up just about anything with a shop vacuum.
Can I use a shop vac without a filter?
Generally, a Shop Vac Cleaner without its filter can only be used for pulling out fluids. If you try to use it without a filter for dry vacuum cleaning, the machine will have a shortened lifespan. In addition, it is recommended that you use the filter-less machine in open spaces.
