Wet vac (CTL MIDI), how to keep it clean?
« on: March 08, 2019, 01:24 PM »
I need to suck up some water out of plumbing, sink, etc.


Any tips to keep (or get) the CTL clean after the job? Guessing a plastic bag will not work [emoji848]?  complete noob here with wet vac-ing [emoji4][emoji849]

If you are going to do that you should get the wet filters for your particular machine.  Other tips will have to come from others because when it comes to that kind of stuff - and worse - I have a cheap trasher wet vac.  Personally don't want to worry about cleaning the hoses.

Thanks. I have the wet filter.

I was thinking after use, suck up some clean water. Then blow it dry (new midi has blow function). [emoji848]

Looking for better solutions.

I have one vac, don’t want to buy another one. Seems the world up side down [emoji6]

It's just plastic, not difficult to clean. Just clean the tub under the shower or a big sink if you have it. Do the top with a cloth with a water and ammonia solution.
