Using filter bags in a Shop-Vac helps keep the dust down. These bags for my little Shop-Vac work great and are easy (and inexpensive) to use. They keep the inside of my vac clean and when they finally fill up, you just toss the whole thing in the trash and put in another filter bag. No dust or dirt flying around when you try to dump out your Shop-Vac with no filter bag. I use my little Shop-Vac a lot and it still took about a year to fill the bag. I don't generally vacuum up water though - that would be a problem if you have a filter bag inside your Shop-Vac.
Perfect substitute for the Type B bags in the Shop Vac 2.5 Gal All Around vacuum. Usually stocked in store and a bit of a better buy.
the paper bags make clean up easier as they catch MOST--not all-- of the dust you would have to clean out of the little vac container base. the vac has powerful suction-- the bag cuts that down some-- but not too much. 3 bags for $5.97 is excessive I feel but you are paying extra for the Shop Vac brand name. I will search on line for a generic or reusable cloth bag-- or just sew some out of fine weave fabric that can be emptied- washed if necessary- and reused with just a rubber band to hold them in place-- much more cost effective and less wasteful. I bought the first set of 3 as no trial bag came with the vac and I wanted to protect the motor until I found an alternative. so--they are cleaning effective but not cost effective for regular use. BEWARE THE POWERFUL AIR EXIT VENT on vac-- it will blow dirt everywhere if you are not VERY careful.
