16 gallon shop vac

I have 3 16 gallon models, one made by Ridgid, a Craftsman and a Shop Vac Lowes model. It's interesting, as you get larger models the motors are also larger so you have more airflow. I mostly use my 1.25 or 1.5 inch hoses, the 2-1/4 hose is just too hard to deal with. Anyway, I can tell that when using these hoses, there is not as much airflow, with the smaller 5 and 6 gallon models, you don't notice that as much. Since I don't use my wet dry vacs for regular every day cleaning, I keep all 8 of them in the storage locker in the basement of my apartment building. I also bought a wand with a spray jet on it, and a 40 foot water hose that attaches to a water faucet. Combine this with a wet dry vac and you have a home made floor scrubber. One thing about wet dry vacs, most of them are very loud, I'm not sure if it's the type of motor that is used, but, they are much louder than most other vacuums.

For me id say in my option my 16 gallon shop vac has a lot of air flow and suction even if the hose is 24 feet long and 2-1/4 . Made by joining 3, 8 foot hose together maybe its due to the fac i use a cartridge filter and a paper bag ,but my shop vac 16 gallon has not let me down yet. Yes they can be quite loud mine odes have a diffuseser whit filter so its not so bad i put it on the blower port makes it quieter to some intent but makes up for it in cleaning power i sure love my 16 gallon shop vac.
