#1 Issue of Central Vacs
With the number one complaint about central vacuums being the central vac hose, what can we do to help the situation? To start, how many hoses out there are over 10 years old? Way to many! Over the years certain hoses can get rigid, and those are no fun to work with. Besides how rough they are on furniture and the corners of your walls, they are a pain to manage. Want to stop the frustrations? Then the time has come to think about getting a new central vacuum hose. A brand new basic vacuum hose is soft and lightweight yet all the while very durable. With a new hose you'll wonder why you didn't get it sooner.
The Right Hose Waits for You
Save Money or Gain Convenience
Take a moment to look at any compatibility notes in central vacuum parts, under your brand, then under hoses. Nearly all systems ever installed will work directly with the basic hose and with so many hose lengths available, you can maximize your cleaning. A fifty foot hose will go incredibly far, even to driveways and porches. Your central vacuum can pick up a lot of things so why not use it for the job? Remember that the tightest turn in the system is right at the wall so if something too long gets in the hose it will get stuck right there where it is easy to retrieve. Besides the long hose, there is also a 25 foot one available. This will be great to use in high-traffic areas that need more than the once a week sweep. A shorter hose is easier to handle and store, and it will actually have more suction for deeper faster cleaning.
Taking a look at the customer reviews, you will see that only real drawback to a basic hose is the lack of a swivel at the handle end. That means the hose will want to kink as you pull it straight and you'll have to physically spin the handle as the hose unwinds. That means you'll have to disconnect from the vacuum wands at times, spin the hose, and then reconnect. If that is a deal breaker for you consider upgrading the basic hose to the low voltage hose for just a bit more money. It can make a world of a difference. Wherever the basic hose is used the low voltage hose can always be used in its place.
There are other useful hoses such as the Stretch Hose and Extension Hose, that fit all systems, and they are on the central vacuum hose
