Answer: 
It does not usea bag. There is a cavity to hold material and a 6-in diameter filter which traps dust to keep it from returning back into the room The filter will last about a year with normal occasional use.

I have read every word in the instruction booklet but do not find an O ring or gasket mentioned anywhere.
This is not the most expensive vacuum on the planet. Anyway, there is a phone number for questions which you might want to try. It is 1-800-474-3443. Hope this helps.

Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!
Please be informed that there is no gasket offered for the vac. The fit has to be a little loose so that all lids will fit on the drum given the tolerance variations possible. A loose fitting lid will not affect the performance of the vac because the negative pressure inside the drum creates added sealing force during operation.

Should it become necessary to move the vac, DO NOT pick it up by the lid handles unless dust drum is empty. To avoid dropping the vac due to latches releasing or possible part breakage, pick the vac up by the handles of the dust drum.

Please note that you can only use the VF7000 wet filter for picking up clean liquids. For dirty liquids, you may use the filter that came with the vac but make sure to check its condition more often. Once it becomes saturated, you will need to remove it, dry it out, check for any damage before reinstalling. Moreover, do not run the vac unattended especially for picking up liquids.
