While changing my DC plastic bag, I noticed that the canister was caked with
dust. I ran the brushes around a few times and got about a coffee can full
of dust out of it. Looking in, it didn't look much different than before
using the brushes.
I ruan compressed air all around and got about 5 coffee cans full of dust.
It looked like I got maybe 80% of the dust out of the filter.
1) Was the brush cleaning adequate? Does having dust filling all the pleats
hurt the air flow, or is that how it is supposed to be?
2) If it is inadequate, is it just my brushes (KUFO) that are no good and
other brands are better?
I changed the bag because it had a hole in it. Not having another bag, I
put a trash can inside the bag with a hole in it. Horrible idea; the
swirling air grabs and shakes the garbage bag. It will not survive long.
So, I have to buy something.
I have seen two things on the market other than simple clear bags. I could
get a felt bag in hopes of increasing my airflow. Any sense to that?
I have seen an adaptor to put a trash can under the DC
Anyone tried this? Maybe it is just two seams to leak instead of one...
