Today at Sears I came across what might be the most unique wet/dry vacuum accessory I’ve seen yet: a small pump that screws into the drain opening. Upon further research I discovered that Shop Vac’s new line has this feature built right in. Now I’m curious.
It’s obvious from the Craftsman’s input screen that this is not for trash pumping. Sucking crap out of a clogged sink, sure, but anything nasty will proably clog it in a hurry. The input filter on the Shop Vac looks more serious, but it’s only going to give you a few more minutes before you have to stop and clean it.
The big question is, as always, does it work? It does look like it’d be useful for cleaning up spills and such. I’d love to hear from anyone who owns the Shop Vac or the Craftsman version — or any similar product for that matter. How often does this feature come in handy? How awkward is it to clean? Any failures to report?
