Customer review by ShopVacHog

5.0 stars by ShopVacHog

This product is everything it claimed to be and more than what I was expecting. I purchased the product to clean out the sump for my sanitation system. Needed something that would provide suction from a more that six feet depth. Performed without hesitation. My spouse wanted the garage floor pressure washed but I was hesitant to do it because I was afraid of all the water I would have to mop up. This was no problem for this shop vac. I am really satified with this product and recommend it highly.

When I purchased this product it was to drain a hottub in the yard, the added advantage of the blower made it a good choice the only down side is that it did not come with the foam filter

Purchased this vac to clean alge from the bottom of our pond. Worked really well. Will be getting more attachments to use it around the house and for the car. Only complaint would be that the hose is VERY flimsy and can kink easy. Maybe you can get one from shop-vac thats stronger!? Besides that, very powerful and not too noisy!

  • A. You can get a new drain cap by visiting and typing in drain caps and search accessories, or you can call Shop-Vac customer service at 877-236-5750 and they can help.

  • A. "Shiver Me Timber's" - I have NOT run into this type of scenario yet with my 16 gallon machine... I'm wondering if you might have any success in finding one of these elusive 'parts' by searching the likes of: E Bay? Craig's List? Home Depot / Lowe's / ??? Your local village 'Penny Saver' or 'Town Crier' publications, etc. or whatever name they call these weekly publication's in your locale in Ohio... I hope that possibly, one of these hints / suggestion's, will bring you the solution U R hoping for. Good Luck!! :-) :::TigheTanic:::

  • A. You might try Shop-Vac again because it is hard to locate on their website. The item for this vacuum is: Catalog No. 744-68-00, Drain Cap Replacement for Large Drain Caps. Price: $2.99. The Shop-Vac website cautions that the appearance of these caps may vary.
