What type of system applies to your water system?

The vacuum cleaner is a pneumatic system. Pneumatic systems are like hydraulic systems only instead they use gas instead of liquids.
In pneumatic systems a gas enclosed with the system transmit a force causing motion.
Other pneumatic systems include precision drills used by dentists, large tampers to pack down dirt, and vehicles.

What would be the consequences if your fluid system stops working?

If a vacuum cleaner were to stop working, the consequences would not be dire. The worst you could face would be a filthy floor.

A reason for the vacuum cleaner to stop working would be that the filter is clogged. If a filter is not cleaned regularly, dust and dirt stick to the filter making it harder for the air to pass. If they air does not pas through the filter the air pressure rises inside the vacuum. Since there is no longer a strong force pushing the air inside, it defeats it’s purpose.

Where fluids are produced, where it travels and what it does

 A vacuum is a pneumatic system that works and relies on the movement of air and gas; Air is all around, not needing to be produced by anything.
Since fluids moved from an area with high pressure to an area with low pressure, a vacuum cleaner has a motor that spins a fan at low pressure, causing air at a higher pressure to rush inside the vacuum cleaner.
Once inside, the air passes through a filter that traps dirt but sends the air outside of the vacuum.
