This 8 gallon vac does not come with a bag, atleast mine didn't. It comes with a foam cylinder filter and a flat piece of filter material that gets placed around the foam filter and a plastic ring fits over both to hold them on. You may find the model number on the Wal-Mart web site under keyword shop vac.

I think you are referring to the reuseable disc filter, so it is 90107 and that will be 3 filters and a new mounting ring. There should be a filter replacment label on the back of the unit that will tell you what the filters are you need. You can visit www.shopvac.com or walmart.com for more information.

I feel it would do pretty good on hair. You may need a brush attachment to use for the hair, but the ability of the vac is sufficient to do the job. Hair can also be picked up using stcky tape. The stuborn hair that gets stuck into threads of material sometimes needs a little more pull and tape might work better. Try around 3 inch tape and wrap it backwards around hand with sticky side out and slap the area the hair is and it will pull it up.

Question

can you use this shop vac to vacuum out a swimming pool

asked 3 years, 8 months ago
By

Answers
answer 1
depends if water is full in pool and the size of the pool. A larger pool needs to be drained with a pump first and a pump would also vacuum the dirt items out as long as they were not rocks or oversized for the pump.

 - Spokane, WA
answer 2
If you are referring to getting the remaining water out of the pool for clean-up yes you can do that put to use it to empty a whole pool, I would not recommend it. We do manufacture a pump vac that you can vacuum water and attach a garden hose to a pump outlet and it will pump the water from the tank, 6 gallons per minute 50 feet.

answer 3
Yes. Buy the attachment kit, and put the hoses that come with it on both the IN and OUT holes. I've run mine for up to an hour, so it should be OK for a small wading / kiddie swimming pool.

I don't think I'd vacuum out the swimming pool with it. You don't want to put the thing under water. But if your pool is empty and you want to vacuum it out then it's fine.

No this is not a pump unit, so you can not attach a garden hose. There is a unit on the Walmart site: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Shop-Vac-Wet-Dry-Pump-Vacuum-10-Gallon/2194732 that is a pump vacuum. This one you can attach a garden hose and pump out the tank. You other option if you find a vac with a drain we make an adapter that attaches to the drain on one end, garden hose on the other. You can purchase this (8012700) by visting shopvac.com or by calling Shop-Vac customer service at 877-236-5750.

Shop-Vac has a pump vacuum that you can vacuum and pump water from the tank at the same time. We also have a drain adapter that will fit onto the drain of the tank and you can attach a garden hose to drain the tank. That adapter is avaiable on www.shopvac.com or by calling Shop-Vac Corporation at 877-236-5750.

All Shop-Vac Brand hoses fit on the tank end wether they are 1 1/4", 1 1/2" or 2 1/2", it is the accessory end of the hose that will change. So you could buy a 2 1/2" hose and that will work on the tank but the accessories you currently have will not work with that hose. There is a conversion unit to go from 2 1/2" hose to 1 1/4" accessories. If you need more information please feel free to contact Shop-Vac Customer Service at 877-236-5750.
