The Best Wet/Dry Vac For Home, Work and Wherever Life Happens

The Best Wet/Dry Vac For Home, Work and Wherever Life Happens

There are plenty of companies out there that claim to have the best wet/dry vac, but the reality is, there’s only one Shop-Vac®. Whether it’s for your home, car, basement, patio, driveway, or wherever … the best-in-class performance and convenience of a Shop-Vac is perfect for both on the job or around the house. Since 1953, Shop-Vac has been making the best vacs and clean-up tools for all the messes life can bring, and we’re just getting started.

But what, exactly, makes Shop-Vac wet/dry vacs the best?

Unbeatable Performance

You might be looking for a vacuum to clear out the dust and debris of your unfinished basement. Or maybe you’re just looking to deep clean your hallway carpet. Whatever the task, Shop-Vac has the tools to meet your need. Every Shop-Vac wet/dry vac lists its sealed pressure, cubic feet per minute, and air power so you always know every Shop-Vac’s proven performance capabilities. So you can choose the best Shop-Vac for the job at hand.

The Right Tools for the Right Job

Big, small, wet, or dry … It’s important to consider the kinds of messes you’re up against when selecting your Shop-Vac. Have a lot of big, heavy-duty cleanup tasks on your hands? Get a vac with a large capacity tank, like the Shop-Vac® 16 Gallon 6.5 Peak HP Wet / Dry Utility Vacuum.

Don’t have that many messes or enough storage space? The Shop-Vac® 2.5 Gallon 2.5 Peak HP Wet / Dry Vacuum might be better for you. A larger vac holds more but gets much heavier as it fills up, and a smaller vac stays light but has to be emptied more frequently. Do your messes require the durability of a stainless-steel tank? Or will a lighter plastic one do the trick? Whatever the job, Shop-Vac has the right tool for you.

Not all messes are created equal, and neither are Shop-Vac’s accessories and attachments. Picking up large debris and fine debris is different. The right filters and attachments for the job are crucial to proper cleaning, but use the wrong ones, and dust or water could be blowing back into the air – or worse, still in the same place as where you started. Every wet/dry vac comes with its own filters and attachments that may be right for your job, but if your needs change, your Shop-Vac’s accessories can change with you.

For All Seasons, Shop-Vac Keeps Clean-Up Easy

Some cleanup jobs require more than just a vacuum. Shop-Vac is here for that. If you have a lot of leaves in your yard or hard to reach areas to clean, get a vac with a blower port and/or a detachable blower. This turns your superior wet/dry vac into an equally superior leaf blower. And its utility does not stop there – if you have any dust or dirt stuck in hard-to-reach areas, blow it to a place that is easier to clean up.

But what if your problem is water? Like, a lot of water? You may want to consider getting a tank drain or one of our pump vacs – like our Shop-Vac® 20 Gallon 6.0 Peak HP Industrial Pump Vac. The tank drain allows you to easily empty water from the vac, and the pump vac further enables you to pump it with the help of a garden hose (not included.) So if your basement gets flooded from a nasty thunderstorm, these options are sure to make your life easier.

Life can get messy no matter where you are, so it’s important to have to right vacuum that can handle whatever kind of mess life throws at you. Many wet/dry vacs claim to be up to the task, but when you want the best, look no further than The One & Only Shop-Vac.
