I do have one Ridgid tool that really works great and paid for its self this last summer. I bought the biggest wet/dry shop vac Home Cheapo had. The Mighty Ridgid wet/dry 6.5 HP 16 gallon BEAST. Cost me $350 bucks with all the extra stuff. My AC is under my house, DON’T ASK WHY, it just is. Crawl space. The water condensation water line got clogged and had a lake under my house.

The Ridgid shop/vac got that water out of there quick. I had to empty out the water in the vac 12 times there was that much water under my house.

So you see, even if a RIDGID tool works correctly.. THEY STILL SUCK! HARD!

I can laugh also but then again it isn’t my crawl space. :)

If you have that much water and that sort of moisture in your crawl space, you should start looking for mold also.

Geeze, give it a break already.
Homes in Vegas don’t have crawl spaces..
(Very few of the old, old ones do, and at that the spaces are only 2ft at the most.)
Come on, change your name, your giving Vegas a bad name….

I have a shop vac brand (stainless steel) and you can attach a garden hose to the drain and use the Vac as a pump basically to push the water up up and away? Might save some time and work?

WOW! 350.00 is a lot of money for that vac. I think I paid 160.00 for mine and 39.00 for i thought all the assessories that came with it. I’ve got to say, so for its been the best vacume I’ve ever owned, very quiet, easy to move around and boy does it Suck!

One bad thing about the rigid vac. Is the price of bags. About 14.00 around here for two bags that I can’t see holding over 8 or 9 gallono, if that.

Have your say...
