Ridgid WD06250 shop vac(6gal) filter bag alternative brands?

Hello all, I have an old Ridgid wd06250 shop vac, I'm removing a popcorn ceiling and noticed that the filter is getting clogged quickly and the vac is loosing suction. I was hoping to find some filter bags for this model and can only find the Ridgid one type b but even that one doesn't seem to work well since the nozzle doesn't go into the tub. Any suggestions on alternative bags, seems Ridgid too is expensive compared to other brands.

Dust collection bags which keeps the paper filter clean longer. Any time the paper filter gets dirty you need probably need to either change the bag or knock the paper filter out.

The yellow high efficiency bags are for drywall dust. The white bags are cheaper but dont filter quite as well.

Are these bags universal or standard? Would it fit my Ridgid wd06250?

They are pretty standard. You just need to watch the size of hole in the cardboard bag reinforcement since there are 2 main sizes. Small vac 1 1/4 and large vac 2 1/2.
