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.

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. But 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 do need an electric hose. We supply the most common style electric hose used by most all brands and models.

Electric Hose Wall Inlet Valve Compatibility

Central Vacuum Electric Hose Wall End

The Electric Hose is available in both Direct Connect and Corded. The first thing to check is the diameter of the wall inlet hole. Diameter should be 1-7/16 inch to 1-1/2 inches. The 110 volt electrical connection is also very important. Take a moment to determine if your wall inlets are standard/basic or electric. An electric valve has two 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 standard/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.

Central Vacuum Electric Hose Handle End

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 the front of the handle, under the metal stub tube, and is flush with the surface. 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 work with Your Vacuum. And for your comfort, the new hose comes in a "gas-pump" style grip for comfortable vacuuming.

Do you Really Need an Electric Hose for Your Vacuum?
If the vacuum you use on your carpets has a head light, 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 it has an air turbine that spins and drives the beater. If you have a turbine head then purchase a Low Voltage Hose, or Basic/Standard 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 increases suction by 27%. The downside, if there is a downside, 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, and your home is better off. Enjoy a cleaner home that gets treated better with less beat up baseboards and furniture. Also, to cut down on kinks, the hose connects to the handle with the ability to rotate all the way around. As you pull the hose it 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 with all our homeowner customers.

"Switch" to Convenience
The largest number of satisfied central vacuum owners use the low voltage hose for their cleaning chores. The price is right for all the helpful features and comfortable styling of the hose. We love it when someone writes another five star review of the hose and describes how much better it is to have an on/off switch on the hose handle. If anyone reading this doesn't have that switch, may we be so bold to say you are missing out. How many times have you set the other type of hose down and it sucks up something unintended or latches itself and inhibits any cooling air from entering the system? Or the doorbell rings or the phone goes off and you had to run back to the wall to stop the vacuum? With the low voltage hose, all that is a thing of the past. Simply switch the vacuum off before you put the hose down or if you get interrupted. And a good side note here would be that the vacuum can be turned on and off thousands and thousands of times without any damage.

Compatibility and Lengths
It is always a good idea to check with your specific brand page, found under central vacuum parts then click on the hoses link, to see if there are any compatibility notes. That said, for 98% of systems ever installed the low voltage vacuum hose will fit right in. You can maximize your cleaning with a variety of hose lengths. A 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? Remember that the tightest turn in the system is right at the wall so if something is too long to go through, 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 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 more suction for deeper, faster cleaning.

Retractable Hose
The handle on the low voltage hose is pistol shaped and replaces all other shaped hose hoses with other handles. For those interested in the latest hose products, the hose handle is the only thing you up away, as the hose itself is suctioned back into the vacuum pipe in the wall. This incredible new hose system can be retrofitted into an existing system as well. It is called the retractable hose system - Hide-A-Hose and it is almost too good to be true.

More Options
There are other useful hoses such as the Stretch Hose and Extension Hose, that fit all systems, that are available from the central vacuum hose page. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call one of our dealers or us directly. Let's be sure you get the parts you need and understand your options.

#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
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.

Save Money or Gain Convenience
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.

More Options
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 page. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call one of our dealers or us directly. Let's be sure you get the parts you need and understand your options.
