Vacuum Hoses for Filtex Central Vacuum

Back to the help center for Filtex

With the new, flexible, crushproof hoses, stiff and unruly central vacuum hoses are a thing of the past. Almost all central vacuums use the same vacuum hoses from the same manufacturer, meaning our hoses will be compatible with 99% of central vacuum systems, including your Filtex vacuum. Our hoses are significantly lighter, more durable, and provide better suction than ever before. 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. See our Central Vacuum Hose Comparison Chart to help choose the right hose for your needs. All hoses come with a 3 year warranty and a 30-day, 100% Money Back Satisfaction Guarantee. Order online from MD today or contact a local dealer.




These are just a few of the vacuum wall plate styles that are compatible. WE GUARANTEE the hoses will fit your wall plate, or we will make it right with you.

Filtex Vacuum Inlet with Pop out Button The hose you needs depends on the inlets you have:

  1. Door bell button. Original valves with door bell button - press once to start, once for off. Buy a Basic Hose with Tapered Cuff, or Electric Hose or Kit and the Tapered Cuff Adapter.
  2. Turns on when opened. A metal door with a button that pops out (pictured) starting the suction. Buy a Basic Hose with Tapered Cuff, or Electric Hose or Kit and the Tapered Cuff Adapter. Better yet, here are Instructions to Replace Pop-Out Button Inlets with Modern Inlets to Use with Modern Hoses and Kits.
  3. Plastic PVC with two small metal contacts inside the hole. All the hoses below are compatible, as well as all Attachment Kits.
