Best wet dry vac for home and garage
For general cleanup of dry debris and liquids, this is the most frequently recommended wet dry vac. Reviews say the 14-gallon size hits the sweet spot -- it's large enough for big jobs, yet small enough to store easily. The hose locks on, making it easy to tug around, and the filter is washable. Ridgid sells dust bags too, and a drain makes emptying liquids easy. Although there are several well reviewed, and cheaper, Shop-Vac and Craftsman wet dry vacs in this size class, only Ridgid offers a lifetime warranty.
