You know the old adage about not judging a book by its cover? Never truer here, though in this case it’s horsepower ratings. A horsepower rating, while relevant, does not provide ample information on the power and performance of the vacuum. It’s really a simple marketing tool that tries to equate more horsepower = more performance. It’s simply not true most of the time. Measures of “CFM” (Air Flow) and “Lift” (Vertical lifting of water) are much better indicators of performance. Low end inexpensive wet/dry vacuums have around 50 CFM and 40 inches of lift. Some “mid range” wet/dry vacuums offer 80 CFM and 50″ of lift. BucketVac delivers 100 CFM and 60″ of lift, considerably better power and performance than most in our category.
Lift is a good measure to understand the power of the vacuum suction created. It’s a measure of how much water (a particularly dense material) can be lifted in a vertical test. Competitive products we tested averaged at least 25% LESS lift than the BucketVac.
The CFM rating is the volume of air the vacuum motor can move based on criteria such as the hose width, filter type etc. It is another good measure of the vacuums suction power. From our best testing, competitive products average 30% less, even at much higher horsepower ratings.
ETL vs. UL. vs TUV vs. CSA. What’s the difference? In short, not much. All of these (and more) are certified by country and global organizations to provide safety testing that meets extremely stringent guidelines. UL just happens to be the most widely recognized. We’ve chosen ETL.

ETL is an internationally recognized standards company, similar to UL (Underwriters Labarotory). ETL provides the same stringent certifications as UL does, and in accordance with widely accepted UL tests. It is accepted globally as an approved certification for UL, CSA and many others.
