A new hose will bring your central vacuum to life. New hoses are significantly lighter, more durable, and provide more suction than ever before. Flexible, crushproof hoses make stiff and unruly central vacuum hoses a thing of the past, and cleaning is more thorough and quick. See our Central Vacuum Hose Comparison Chart for overall hose differences. All hoses come with a 3 year warranty and a 30-day, 100% Money Back Satisfaction Guarantee. If you have an electric vacuum carpet brush you will need an Electric Hose. Otherwise, most systems benefit from a Low Voltage Hose. For easy storage and quick clean ups, a Stretch Hose works wonders as a secondary hose. Order online today or contact us directly. You may have an independent local dealer for product sales and information.

Importance of Electric Hose Compatibility with Your Vacuum

When your vacuum system is installed or upgraded, the hose and tool set may not have matched the main vacuum unit brand. That's perfectly fine because 99% of central vacuum systems are universal. Regardless of brand, the wall outlets in 99% of systems are all the same and work with any number of hoses, attachment sets, and vacuums. When looking for a replacement central vacuum hose, there are several things to consider. The most important is the type of carpet brush being used. If there are electrical connections or cords on the vacuum head then you need an electric hose. The compatibility of the Electrical Hose is further explained below. No matter the hose you purchase from us you will have a high quality, durable hose, and we back it with a three year warranty.

Electric Hose Wall Inlet Valve Compatibility
Central Vacuum Electric Hose Wall End

The Electric Hose is available in both Direct Connect or Corded. The first thing to check is the diameter of the wall inlet hole. Compatible inlets will be 1-7/16 inch to 1-1/2 inches in diameter. If it is narrower or wider we have a solution. The 110-volt electrical connection is also very important. Take a moment to determine if your wall inlets are basic or electric. An electric valve has two tiny holes, 3/8" apart, above or below the main hole. An electrified inlet valve receives the Direct Connect version of the Electric Hose. If there are no small holes then you have basic wall valves and you will need the Corded version of the Electric Hose for your vacuum.

Electric Hose Handle End Compatibility. Connecting your accessories and wand.

The handle end of the replacement electric hose has a three-way switch, a right, left and middle (off) position. The two-pin electrical connection is flush on the front of the handle under the metal stub tube. The round stub tube that slides into the wands has a button lock nipple two inches away from the handle end. Please take a look at the photo for additional understanding of the Electrical Hose end to be sure it works with your vacuum. And for your comfort, the new hose comes in a "gas-pump" style grip which is compatible with all other style handles.

Do you Really Need an Electric Hose for Your Vacuum?

If the vacuum you use on your carpets has a headlight, or an electrical cord, or a two-pin connection at the hose handle then your system requires an electric hose. Do note that there are vacuum heads that spin without electricity. These vacuum heads do not require an electric hose because they have an air turbine that spins and drives the beater. If you have a turbine head then purchase a Low Voltage Hose, or Basic Hose.

Upgrade to an Electric Hose for Your Vacuum?

Upgrading any central vacuum to an electric hose is easy and extremely beneficial. The Electric Vacuum Hose is at the top of the ladder because it delivers 110 volts to a carpet brush for ultimate carpet grooming. Yes, it is the most expensive hose, but the investment in your carpet is well worth it. If you don't have an electric carpet brush, you'll need a Complete Electric Attachment Kit. A new electric kit fits into all built-in vacuum systems without any modifications.

Guaranteed Quality and Durability

Compared to older hoses, the Electric Central Vacuum Hose is crushproof, lighter, and typically increases suction by 27%. The downside (if there is a one!) is the hose feels like you get less for your money because it is so lightweight, but nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, you get more for the money because the hose is soft and durable. Enjoy a cleaner home with less beat up baseboards and furniture. Also, to cut down on kinks, the hose completely rotates at the handle. As you pull, the hose unwinds itself so you can get right to work and not spend time fixing kinks. If there is an issue with your new hose we will replace it for free, and we make the process easy and painless. Our customer service is highly rated by our customers.

Low Voltage is Not Electric - Which hose do you need?

A Low Voltage Hose can turn the suction on and off but cannot power an electrified power brush (a vacuum nozzle with an electrical cord or pins on it). The switch on the Low Voltage Hose handle only rocks on and off. By contrast, an Electric Hose has a switch with three positions, the middle being the off position. Both Low Voltage and Electric hoses are available in a variety of colors, handle shapes and styles.

Low Voltage Hose End - Wall Inlet Compatibility

Low Voltage Vacuum Hose Wall End

The Low Voltage Central Vacuum Hose is compatible with all wall inlets that are 1-7/16 to 1-1/2 inches in diameter. If it is narrower or wider we have adapters. Give us a call. How does the switch work? 99% of all wall inlets have two metal nubs inside the hole. A hose without a switch starts the vacuum by simply inserting the metal hose end into the wall inlet making contact with both metal nubs. The Low Voltage hose keeps those low voltage nubs separate, allowing the switch to start and stop the suction. (You cannot get shocked from the metal nubs inside the inlet valve hole, there is only a small amount of voltage and no amps.)

"Switch" to Low Voltage Hose Convenience

Low Voltage Vacuum Handle Switch

The largest number of satisfied central vacuum owners use a hose with an on/off switch for their cleaning chores. Nearly all central vacuum systems can upgrade to a better hose without having to change anything in their system. If your hose doesn’t have a switch, simply buy a Low Voltage Hose and realize all the convenience. If the doorbell sounds or the phone rings, simply turn the suction off at the handle. There is no need to run back to the wall to pull the hose to stop the vacuum. Some owners ask if the vacuum lasts as long if it is constantly being switched on and off. Answer is, the vacuum is not affected by it, it can actually be turned on and off thousands and thousands of times.

Longer and Shorter Lengths Available

You can maximize your cleaning with a variety of hose lengths. A forty or fifty foot hose will go incredibly far, even to driveways, and porches, or past them. Your central vacuum can pick up a lot of things so why not use it for the job? Don’t worry about clogging the pipes, remember that the tightest turn in the system is right at the wall so if something is too long it will not go through. It will get stuck right there where it is easy to retrieve. Besides the long hoses, there is also a 25 foot one available. This size is handy 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 a bit more suction for deeper, faster cleaning.

Basic Hose End - Wall Inlet Compatibility

Basic Vacuum Hose Wall End

The Basic Central Vacuum Hose is compatible with all wall inlets that are 1-7/16 to 1-1/2 inches in diameter. If it is narrower or wider we have adapters. 99% of all wall inlets have two metal nubs inside the hole. The Basic Hose doesn’t have a switch on the handle end, so by simply inserting the hose end into the inlet the metal makes contact with both metal nubs, thus starting the suction. To stop the vacuum, the hose must be pulled out of the wall valve. (You cannot get shocked from the metal nubs inside the inlet valve hole, there is only a small amount of voltage and no amps.)

The Right Hose for You? Consider a great upgrade for a few dollars more.

Basic Vacuum Hose Handle End

Nearly all systems ever installed will work directly with the Basic Vacuum Hose and with so many hose lengths available, you can maximize your cleaning. The only real drawback to a Basic Hose is the lack of a swivel and on/off switch at the handle end. That means the hose will want to kink as you pull it and lacks the convenience of controlling the suction at your fingertips. If either is a deal breaker, consider upgrading to the Low Voltage Hose for just a bit more money. It makes a world of a difference. Wherever the Basic Hose is used the Low Voltage Hose can always be used in its place.

Stretch Hose 5-STAR Reviews
"It's perfect for touch-ups and nice not to have to pull the big giant hose out."
"I just love it! Use it all the time for quick clean ups. I can`t believe it stretches so long, great product!"

Stretch Hose Compatibility

The Stretch Hose fits into all 1-7/16 inch to 1-1/2 inch diameter vacuum wall inlets, which is in 99% of all central vacuums, no matter the make, model or year. The suction starts when the hose is plugged into any basic or electric wall inlet. The small, 5 pound hose stretches as you make fast work of any quick clean-up. Vacuuming the kitchen daily is now a simple chore! When done, simply pull the hose from the wall valve and the suction stops. Toss it in a small drawer nearby for the next use.
