Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 101 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Has the power to do what it's suppose to do. Only a week old, cleaned up the mess I've been making scraping the popcorn off the ceilings Needed a larger hose, my old Shop-Vac still works (20 years old)! Hose is to small. I'll see if this last as long. May 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I will recommend this to my friends Very good easy to use will recommend to friends This vacuum had great features and good price April 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like the Brand Second tool purchased from Ridgid ,could not ask for better quality. April 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 9 Gallon Wet / Dry Vac Excellent vac , better hose,attachments, and suction ! Far better than my old shop vac - Great price ! Great product ! April 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Affordable and durable Already used it to soak up a flooded basement and clear leaves from a stairwell. Performed well. Highly recommended April 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by designed really well. Love the large diameter hose and attachments . I've only had it for a week but so far it works great. March 31, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by The attachments do not stay connected. The attachments do not stay connected. For even a relatively small job, I have to constantly reattach or at least continually tighten the attachment points. This makes clean-up jobs a bit of a hassle, and nearly impossible to do without using both hands. Otherwise, the vacuum power is good. Seems reasonably durable. March 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value for the price wanted a shopvac with a larger hose diameter for a saw dust collection on several saws. this fit the bill and did not break my wallet in the process. Great machine for the price March 30, 2015

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!

The 9 gallon vacs do not have a drain. The vacs that have a drain on the bottom part of the drum are 12 gallons or larger.

If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to call us at 1-800-4-RIDGID (1-800- 474-3443).

Regards,
RIDGID
