I've used this sander on drywall, but not fiberglass. My guess is it would work about the same.

The water does pick up most of all the dust. It leaves quite a thick layer of sludge at the bottom of the bucket. The tubes, being flexible with ridges, tend to collect a fair amount of dust in them and need a good flushing when the job is done.

I found that the water can splash out of the bucket towards the vacuum. causing a thin layer of drywall compound that hardens, if not cleaned right away, on the inside of that tube. Possibley lowering the water a little would help.

One thing I noticed was a large amount of static that built up in the tubes. It may be because it was winter and dry, but I bet it is pretty common just from the material flowing throught the pipe.

I'd still use a bag/filter on the vac as a little dust always gets though. On my vac I have "HEPA" bags. I know they're not real HEPA, but they do trap smaller dust particles.
