Cyclonic side inlet

Recommended Posts

I’m looking at fitting a cyclonic inlet on the side of my vac, not so much for the cyclone effect but more to divert the muck away from my filter basket.

Does anyone have part numbers of the bits required?

Don’t have the part numbers but when I sourced the parts needed I got them from Grippatank. The parts are expensive and you also need the gasket that goes with the side entry, it’s very expensive for what it is but does the job.

Thanks Cristian, found all the bits there, does seem expensive.

Does the cyclonic action make a difference? I’m really just after keeping the majority of the sludge so it doesnt spray directly at the filter, I’m wondering if just a small deflector plate screwed inside and in front of the inlet might work as well.

Yes it makes better suction, and definitely keeps all the crud away from central filter basket
