Question about Shop Vac Vacuums
Are you sure your vac CAN safely suck up water? It's not something you want to do if it can't.

SOURCE: DEWALT DW795 Vac filters
IT looks like the part number is 429704-56 and the Dewalt site shows list price being $51.68. You should be able to order that filter at a DeWalt dealer in your area, hopefully for a discount.

yes, the foam filter is what you should use, also make sure you remove any bag, or paper filter, the water would make it fall apart.

Yes you should remove the filter for liquids. If the filter is not removed the internal float stop will not operate correctly. This will lead to the liquid being drawn up into the impeller and around the motor.
However I still like to have something in place because in most instances the liquid you vacuum up will not be without some solids. So I like to use a foam insert. Places like Home Depot carries a universal insert that works great.
Hope that helps.
