In-line filter, do you use one?

Hey guys, just wondering how many are using in-line vacuum filters? Personally, I haven't tried one yet as the basket filter and air inlet filter seem to be doing the job on my Titan 575. Do certain machines benefit more from filters? Do you loose some vacuum pressure?

Main reason I use an inline filter is that you can run 4 to the door.

Another good reason is that you can switch out filters (5 gallon paint strainers you can buy for about a buck each) during the day if you need to rather than going into the waste tank. You would be surprised how much a 5 gallon paint strainer will hold!

I use a CRB so I pull a lot of gunk out of the carpet.

Agree with John, clean the waste tank and filter once a month.
