Demanding gutter cleaning projects are no challenge for your trusty Guttersucker Vacuum. But you might notice a drop in suction power over time.
You can keep your Gutter Vacuum operating in peak condition by checking, cleaning, and maintaining your filters.
Your filter is a vital part of your vacuum system as it protects the motor from damage caused by rogue dust particles. The airflow is restricted when your filter is clogged or wet, and your vacuum works harder with reduced suction performance. This in turn means that cleaning jobs take longer, so you can schedule fewer projects daily and earn less money.
So, you can save a lot later by spending a little time and money on maintaining your filter now!
Check for damage to your gutter vacuum filter:
A damaged filter lets dirt and grit into the system, which causes further damage to the motor. Damaged motors require costly repairs, leaving you without a vacuum until it is repaired and returned to you. We recommend changing the filter 2-3 times yearly (every 4-6 months) to prevent this.
Follow the steps below to clean your filter:
- Clean your filter after every use
- Remove excess dirt with a stiff brush
- If the filter is particularly dirty, wash it with a domestic hose on the spray-jet attachment
- Brush around the air intake section of the vacuum head
To keep your Guttersucker Vacuum in peak condition, ensure that you:
• Start each project with a CLEAN and DRY filter
• Check your filter for damage
• Replace your filter every 4-6 months.
