Will it Stay on Old Wands?

My old hard floor brush keeps falling of the wand...very frustrating not to mention a waste of time. Would this new one stay attached to the wand better? The old one has a metal swivel tube attaching to a plastic wand

Answer:
This is a universal size that fits nearly all straight vacuum tubes with a round end that is 1-1/8" to 1-1/4" in diameter. Please measure yours and note if there is a slight taper to the end that gets just a bit wider with in a couple inches. Normally wands have 1-1/8" on the very end but soon taper up to 1-1/4".

Replacement Wheel?

Is it possible to order a replacement wheel for the deluxe floor brush ?

Garage Brush?

Which is the proper brush for a garage?

Answer:
We like several brushes for the garage, as there is not really a proper one for it. This one here is really good because it will last the longest over the rough concrete. The one without wheels may pick up more but also gets more debris stuck on the bristles. The large all metal tool sticks to the floor very well but is quite wide and bulky. The choice is yours....

Curved Neck for Straight Wands?

Does this brush come with the curved metal (or plastic) piece that allows it to connect the straight extension tubing? What I am missing is the curved piece that is in between the actual head/brush and the straight extension piece. Please let me know so that I may order this. Lauren, Phoenix

Answer:
The vacuum brush neck is at an angle, ready for the straight wands to go in.

We have wands from a late 1980s Nutone system that have the push button mechanism for attachments. Will this floor brush work with these wands? Ron Newtown CT

Best for Dog Hair?

We just purchased a siberian husky, what attachment would you suggest to pick up all the hair..Thanks for any advice..

Answer:
Hi, this 12 inch brush is a great tool for the hard floors with dog hair. The Stealth Kit is best for carpets, and did you see the new PetVac decarding groomer that connects to the suction of the vacuum? It is wonderful, just connect the new hose to the end of your long existing hose. Check it out here www.builtinvacuum.com/petvac. Keeping the dog groomed really helps cut down the hair in the home.

This or 402D Brush?

Using a central vac system, would this brush be a better choice than the 402d as an "all around" bare floor brush? I like the idea of the sides being open, but don't really want to sacrifice on cleaning power. The 402d seems to be a much more popular choice here. tx

Answer:
Hi, if you have pet hair, it makes more sense to have the openness of the wheeled brush. It cleans very well. Gets the grit and junk off the floor. The brushes do touch the ground. The issue is that many people are hesitant about the wheels for several reasons. Will they break, leave marks or prevent a good cleaning. The truth is for most homes the brush is really great. If you have a show home you may want the 402D though because there is no possibility of leaving wheel traces.

Wheeled or Not - Dirt and Hair on Vinyl

I have vinyl plank flooring. Which tool is best for this type of flooring? 402D or the deluxe with wheels. Pet hair is part of the problem, but also dust and dirt. Cindy, Battle Ground, WA

Answer:
Hi, this is a great question and the users are split on the answer. The wheeled one will pick up from the sides quicker but will not aggitate the dirt as close to the edge. It just sucks in whatever is loose. The deluxe, non-wheeled tool aggigates the floor more but hair will get stuck on the brush more and it will push the debris around a bit more since it has brushes touching the floor all the way around except along the front edge.

Fit Orange Hose?

Will this tool fit on the wand for the orange garage hose? Is there an accessory package that fits the orange hose, so I do not have to change the end of the hose to use the crevace and small round brush tools?

Answer:
Hi, the central vacuum garage hose that is orange colored works with all the accessories the other colored/non-colored hoses use. All the accessories here http://builtinvacuum.com/access.html will work.
