Epa RRP hepa…no more pita

Well its about time! This has been a topic for…just about too long.

Here’s the deal (from Festool):

RRP Full Unit Certified HEPA Vacuums
Only a Full Unit Certified HEPA dust extractor meets the EPA RRP regulation guidelines, protecting you from expensive fines! All current Festool CT Dust Extractor models have been independently tested and certified to be FULL UNIT HEPA Dust Extractors. When you purchase a new Festool CT Dust Extractor, regardless of model, you will find a printed certificate in the box as well as labeling on the dust extractor documenting its Full Unit HEPA certification. If your current vacuum only has a HEPA filter and is not Full Unit HEPA Certified, then you are at risk of being cited for noncompliance with EPA RRP regulations. Simply put, there’s absolutely no substitute for Full Unit HEPA Certification when using your vacuum for RRP.

A HEPA filter is only as good as its seal with the vacuum.
