Better models for dustless sanding go one step further and filter the dust into a bucket you fill with water first.
That means the dust never has chance to enter your vacuum and potentially clog up your filter.
A wet filtering mechanism like this also just makes cleaning up easier, since you don’t have to accumulate a bunch of powder and try to empty it out later.

Drywall Sanding Tips
When you purchase this item, first check that all the parts came in the box. If there are any problems, contact the distributor
They are really helpful and stand by their life-time warranty on their dust-free sanding products.
With any mechanical tool, this one will take some getting used to for no-dust sanding. Don’t be in a hurry at first (you’ll end up saving lots of time in the long run anyway!).
Just take your time to get used to the feel of holding it and working with the suction across your walls.
Pace yourself as you work. Using a dustless drywall sanding tool can become tiring.
Just take frequent breaks for larger jobs and remind yourself that this is still a lot less work than hand sanding AND having to clean up dust afterwards!
Adjust Pressure as Needed
One of the key complaints with this tool is that the suction is too hard and the sander sticks to the wall.
Be sure to use the pressure control valve on the unit to reduce suction to a comfortable level.
If you notice sanding sheets ripping or that you’re working hard to pull it along the wall, then reduce the sucking pressure.
Take the time to read through the directions carefully. It’s not rocket science, but even just a glance at the instructions can help save you time and frustration in your sanding efforts.
Protect Your Ears
Wear ear plugs when dustless drywall sanding! The noise from the vacuum and the sander can get really loud. If you hear an exceptionally noisy squeal or whistle from the sanding unit, reposition or tighten the hose and sanding seals to minimize.
The dustless sander tool will make clean-up easy, but the quality of your actual sanding depends on other factors such as how well you did your drywall mudding.
