I bought a Dust Deputy not too long ago to use with my tuckpoint grinder when I repointed my basement. It worked ok, but it seems like the fine particles were making it to the vacuum filter and I had to shake it out two or three times while repointing because I noticed less was being sucked up due to the clogged filter. Something similar happened when I used it to suck up drywall dust. I know these two substances aren't really what the Dust Deputy was meant to suck up, but it has worked pretty well otherwise. Is there a way that I could put a "water filter" between the vacuum and the dust deputy to potentially capture more of these particles without severely degrading the cfm performance? I was thinking something basic, like another 5 gallon bucket with a pvc inlet tube going down to ~3 inches from the bottom of the bucket and the outlet (leading to the vacuum) at the lid, and filling the bucket up about halfway or so with water. My only concern would be a larger suction would be generated and the water would be sucked out of the bucket in whole or in part. Also, I would probably need something to diffuse the air moving into the water so it's not a large glob of air rushing through. Any ideas?

Great minds think alike, Anon.
I have a setup exactly like you envisioned and it is working great.

David Stanton, an Australian guy on YouTube did a system like that. My friend copied his and it seems to work really well for woodworking.

Hey OP have you considered 2 dust deputies connected in a line? I'm starting a concrete grinding/polishing system and thinking of a way to diy the vacuums.

I think a water filter will seriously degrade the suction. The Dust Deputy alone, amazing as it is for sawdust, can choke about 20% of a vacuum's suction IIRC.

The second Dust Deputy won't capture anything the the first won't. If a particle is too small for the cyclone to fling it out, it's just going to pass right through the system. If it's big enough, it will capture it.

Here's my setup.
That yellow box is a really nice addition to a dust collection setup. It turns on the vacuum when the power tool turns on, and stays on for five seconds after the power tool shuts down. And also, it can be connected to separate circuits. So say, if your vacuum consumes 8 amps and the tool takes 14, it won't trip a typical 15 amp circuit. But I don't need to. I really need to make a cart or something so I don't have all this spaghetti on my garage floor.

What is it called?

I had to go back down to the garage to remember.

It's an 'iVac BCTINT'.
