Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 119 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Vac This is a great vac if your needs are not large. This is designed to not be as heavy and awkward to use as a full size shop vac. I have a full size shop vac and it's greats for large jobs but this smaller version is great around the house and for medium size jobs. I really like the size and weight since it's easier to move around and store. The only criticism is the lack of a crevice tool not being included with the package. It is available as a separate purchase item but I believe it should have been included in the original package. July 28, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Small Nozzles Product is easy to use and appears to be durable. The only complaint I have is the utility and wet nozzles are too small. They should have a larger opening to make them more efficient. I also have another smaller vac (another brand) with a larger open that works much better. I am able to use it on the Ridgid vac when I need to vac up a lot of water in a hurry. July 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value for the price. Dry vacuum suction on rugs could be better. performance on wet tile is very good July 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very strong product This product works very well in cleaning up messes, but it is important that you have the right attachments to do the job. And it is not always clear which size attachment goes with which vac. July 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a great Wet/vac has great power for my use. i would purchase another if I had to in the future.I will tell my friends about this unit. July 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Had leaking ac unit, worked excellent cleaning up excess water July 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product works very good. I do wish it came with a crevice attachment. It does work well though and has good power. July 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by good suction but clogs quickly when cleaning fines Traded in from an older Sears that had lost most suction. This is much easier and lighter to move/pick-up. Has a very long flexi-hose that lets one access most areas and work at some distance without bending, but does easily get tangled and cumbersome when moving/storing; could use an onboard storage clip or something like they have for the accesories. Strong suction but clogs quickly when vacuuming fine grain material (sandings from wall board and compound), requiring frequent changing of bag (which is actually pretty easy, just a pain to do it in middle of job) July 8, 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
