Continue reading for a full product introduction to this innovative vacuum and how it can help you at home or on the job site.

Fully Certified HEPA Vacuum

The HEPA Wet+Dry Pro is fully certified.  Many other vacuum companies claim that their vacuums are HEPA; however, we certify our filters through third party laboratories.  Using particle testing, they are able to certify our filters to meet EPA and OSHA standards as a HEPA vacuum.

In addition, this testing extends to the entire vacuum.  Not only are the filters tested, but this vacuum has been evaluated as a whole to positively meet HEPA standards.

Wet dry vac filter

This certification means that our vacuums and filters:

  • Capture 99.97% of particles at 0.3 microns, or particles more than 100 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair
  • Are compliant for silica, lead, asbestos, and hexavalent chromium abatement
  • Contain a semi-automatic filter cleaning mechanism that maintains filter efficiency and complies with OSHA Silica Rule regulations

 

Go From Dry to Wet

HEPA Wet+Dry Pro paired with dust shroud for a complete Dustless solution.

The HEPA Wet+Dry Pro is a fully water-capable vacuum.  We have several measures that ensure the filters remain functioning when water is present.

Firstly, the filter is made from PTFE-coated polyester rather than paper.  Most HEPA filters are made from paper and will be destroyed when they are wet; however, the polyester is water resistant and will be protected when doing light water work.

Secondly, we have included a wet screen.  This is for use if you are solely suctioning large amounts of water.  Simply remove the filter and put in the wet screen for a wet only vacuum.

Most importantly, an inner float in the filter will rise with the level of the water.  As the water level increases, the float ball will seal off the motor chamber, keeping your vacuum from swamping with water.

All of this makes it so you can switch from dry to wet without switching filters.

Motor and Specs

The HEPA Wet+Dry Pro pulls an astounding 138 CFM, something that most vacuums twice its size cannot do.

While CFM captures light dust, water lift provides the suction even when the filters become clogged.  Many vacuums have a high CFM but low water lift – this vacuum finds a nice balance to ensure nice air flow and suction.

  • 138 CFM of air flow
  • 82.30″ Water Lift
  • 8 Gallon Capacity
  • 2.25″ Standard Port

A major innovation to this vacuum is the port blower switch.  The small yellow switch on the front allows air diversion, allowing you to customize how the air is exhausted.  This can be useful in delicate workplaces where you don’t want to stir up more dust.

The plastic deflector shield in the picture to the left diverts water from hitting the water resistant filter and down into the barrel.  Additionally, it protects the filter from debris that could potentially damage it.

Carry Handle and Cleaning Mechanism

Our customers have asked for a carry handle on our next vacuum – and we answered!  On the right you can see the centralized carry handle for easy portability.

In addition, there is a filter cleaning mechanism.  Just push the button several times while plugging the hose to knock accumulated dust off the filter and restore suction.

The black protrusion on the side of the lid allows you to “park” the wand when not in use, while the ergonomic wand design allows you to hold the carry handle and wand in one hand for transport.

Everything Fits On-Board
