Customer Question

I have a Bosch PAS 850 vacuum cleaner (wet and dry) and want to replace the "permanent" cartridge filter, which has disintegrated after years of tough use. Can you help me to find one anywhere? It seems to have been discontinued by most spares distributors.

JACUSTOMER-hlucxa9r- :

I tried them already. Discontinued.

Plumberpro :

Oh bugger , it's going to be a mission to track one down then . all the best

Plumberpro :

I'll try a couple of my regular places and come back to you

JACUSTOMER-hlucxa9r- :

OK, best of luck.

JACUSTOMER-hlucxa9r- :

As far as I know this filter is a standard HEPA design, so should still be available even if Bosch stockists don't list it any more.

Plumberpro :

Hi . tried usual stockist and nothing. Looked on eBay under Bosch HEPA filter. There are a few listed under that , might be worth having a look to see if yours is there

JACUSTOMER-hlucxa9r- :

Been there, done that. I'll show you the scars if you like.

JACUSTOMER-hlucxa9r- :

Frankly, you're just doing what I've already done myself. I turned to you in the hope you might know something I don't, but it doesn't appear to be the case.

Plumberpro :

No probs . look I'll opt out maybe someone else will have a magic solution

Plumberpro :

Bestv of luck
