In case it behaves like mine: the clear bin seems to be static and to attract fine dust from the ambient air.

Should the problem be different: a picture or two could help.

 ??? it might be something like that but the dust seems to come from the top of the bin.
Did you try the bag sold with the CT-VA ?

I only used it for wood, so far, so I havn't seen the need for the bag.

Given that the inside of the bin should be below room pressure when in action... there shouldn't be any dust able to escape in case there's a leak.

You can buy a midi or a mini to clean up the outside of your other vacuums if needed
