Stand in front of the vaccuum with the lable facing you, the 2 release levers are on the left and right sides, attached to the motor housing, which sits atop the tank/canister. Pull out and up on the levers, twist counter-clockwise, lift straight up and the motor housing will follow, leaving the tank/canister on the floor.

If you want to get water that's in your vacuum, OUT of your vacuum, you simply need to remove the top and dump the water out. As far as I know, the Shop-Vac 962-16-00 won't "pump out" any water that's in it.
If you want to pump water from one place to another (for example, your basement to your backyard), this vacuum doesn't pump water "through" itself (like a sump pump) - it will, however, **** water up. You just need to dump it out once the vacuum is full.
ok . i may have read you post wrong but i think you want the vacuum to empty itself ? i never heard of any vacuum emptying itself ......... the water or dirt goes into the canaster . when full remove the top and dump the bin . some than a drain plug you take out when your over a floor drain or outside ........ if this answer helped please rate 3 or 4 this high rateing will keep me in the paid answer department thanks you ..........if i misunderstood your post i am sorry , just leave a comment i will get it and try to help

open the top of the vacuum. remove ONLY the filter element. There should be a ball about a two inch diameter inside the cage. It's purpose is to shut off the vacuum flow when water reaches a high in the canister.
