If you're interested in one with the wet-dry option be sure to get one
with a pump. The collection container gets really heavy with 15-20
gallons of water in it. And scooping it out with a bucket isn't much

I've looked into this once and if I remember correctly I think I found that
all shop vacs are made by two companies no matter what brand. As a painting
contractor the two features that have become important to me are 1. That the
vac vents to the side rather than to the floor where it will blow huge
amounts of dust around, and 2. A handle on the top so the vac can be moved
around with only one hand.
Ever since I blew out the pilot light on the water heater while vacuuming
the cellar floor, I've thought of the advantages of a vac that exausts
upwards instead of pararell to the floor. I could probably find a couple of
pieces of PVC with an elbow joint to redirect the exaust.
If you'll be vacuuming a lot of water, find a vac with a bulkhead fitting
that'll let you drain the cannister without having to pick it up and tip
