The dc5001H hepa filter for the DC500 portable dewalt vacuum turns it into an inexpensive computer room grade vacuum, however I do not recommend just changing filters on the same unit if you are required to control dust to hepa standards. The reason is that when you are NOT using the 5001H blowby dust will lodge inside the vacuum and come out later when you are using the 5001H. If you buy this filter, buy a 2nd dc500 DEWALT DC500 2-Gallon 12-to-18-Volt Cordless/Corded Wet/Dry Vacuum and use a sharpie to mark on it HEPA ONLY after installing the 5001H filter.
The 5001H is more limited than the 5001 goretex membrane filter - it can not be used for wet pickup and can not be washed out like the 5001 can. If you want the 5001 to last longer, wrap it with a few winds of toilet paper (3-4 complete circles) and put a rubber band around...
Filter design is ok, it does the job, but is quick to clog and once clogged is difficult to clean out. there seems to be a need for some form of pre screening because the current design is too quick to get filled with dust and then suction power goes quickly downhill. If your just cleaning out a car or wood chips, fine. But dust from sanding walls quickly put it out of commission.
My 12 year old DC500 vacuum was losing suction and at first I thought it was the motor. After reading some forum I found out that it was the hepa filter. Even though I cleaned it regularly some of the dirt still remain in there and over the years it started to cake up. Got the replacement at Amazon free 2 day delivery if you have Prime and my DC500 is as strong as the day I bought it.
