Is the GarageVac a wet/dry system?
No, the GarageVac is a dry system only. We conducted a survey and found that very few people use the wet feature, and the drawbacks include:
· Cleaning out a muddy container
· Mildew smell in the house in a vacuum cleaner
· Cannot use a hypo-allergenic filter

Eight pounds or 1 gallon, depending on the type of debris. The patented vacuum chamber allows the bag to fill completely without collapsing, thereby utilizing the entire bag.

What is the warranty?
Can I vacuum up water?
No. GarageVac’s are not designed as a wet/dry vacuum.
Where does the air discharge?
The air discharges from the bottom of the unit. With GarageVac's high filtration system you can be assured that dirt will not be returned into your garage. Always check the filtration rating on ANY vacuum cleaner you purchase!
I like a standard central vacuum hose. Why do you sell the stretch hose?
Each hose has its own merits. Standard central vacuum hose is lighter weight but it is inconvenient to store. With the stretch hose, it is quick to connect, making it ideal for high traffic areas and quick clean ups, and it shrinks to just 8’ so it is simple to store.
How does your vacuum cleaner compare with a standard upright or canister?
GarageVac units have more suction power than most of the standard vacuums in retail stores.
My vacuum cleaner stopped running. What should I do?
The most common cause is a clogged hose or floor tool, so check that first. The motor is protected so it cannot burn up and will require about an hour to reset.
