drywall vac

Does anyone use a shop vac to keep dust down when sanding drywall mud? We use the Porter Cable "pole" sander to sand our drywall. Hooked to a vac. to keep the dust down. I've heard of the use of a "water bath" of sorts in line to help keep the filter clean. Anyone have any info on such a creature? Thanks all!

Drywall Sanding

Have you taken a look at the Porter-Cable 7800 Sander, with or without Vac. I just bought one a few weeks ago and it works nice hooked to my shop vac, however the Porter-Cable vac has a double filtering system that ends up in a oversized hoover type bag for easy disposal. :Thumbs:
Note: It does not sand into the corners.
