I used to wash the factory bags that came with my Delta AP400 with just a garden hose and given how poorly they blocked fine dust it’s hard to tell if it did any damage. I replaced them with a much larger top bag from AFF and a plastic lower collection bag. I have noticed the air flow when brand new was tremendous and after seasoning has dropped dramatically. When it gets really bad, I’ll beat it from the outside knocking some of the dust down into the plastic bag, then stick a broom inside after removing the lower bag to further clean it out. This process has never allowed me to regain the new flow capability, but works well enough to keep things flowing the way they need to.
