When a real-life plumber brings a wet/dry vacuum into your home, you obviously want to check out what they use. To my surprise, this Bucket Head powerhead, which attaches to the top of an inexpensive, five-gallon Home Depot bucket, was equally inexpensive at $30. That's way cheaper than the one I just bought and will be my next one. The plumber's other rule was to have one for dry pickups and one for wet pickups, not try to switch back and forth. Another suggestion I plan to follow.
