Questions & Answers

1.12 Diameter Fit?

The Kenmore has a steel tube with a 1.12 diameter. Will it fit by friction on this tube?

Answer:
That is probably the very end of the metal tube that has a taper, right? That is usual and will fit this tool because it tapers up to about 1.25".

10-inch Available?

Will the brush attachment fit a Filtex FX675A? I notice yours is 12-inch and the one that came with the system is 10 inch. Is there a 10 inch?

Answer:
There used to be a 10-inch, but this one replaced it and it will work with your system.

Adaptor for Wand?

Does this come with an adapter for the wand?

Answer:
This does not come with an adaptor for a wand.

Aerus & Electrolux Compatible? Soft?

Are the bristles soft enough for hardwood floors and does this attachment fit on Aerus central vac systems.

Answer:
Yes, the bristles are made for hard wood floors and works very well. The Aerus system is proprietary so you are stuck with their tools. What is different? The accessory's male/female connections are backwards from the entire rest of the industry. We suggest using your Aerus hose and attachments until worn out and then buying a new electric kit such as the Stealth Kit which will fit into your existing vacuum wall inlets.

Beam Q and Solaire

Hi folks Two questions; 1. I need the grey plastic bit that surrounds the "on/off" switch on my Beam Solaire central vac system. Is it getable? 2. My home has about 90% stained concrete floors. Is there a better floor brush for the Beam Solaire than the one sent out with the system. The brushes on this one just seem to push the dust and dirt around. Thanks for the help. L. Braun

Answer:
Hi, you can use this and any accessories with your Beam Q or Solaire so long as you also use this adapter http://builtinvacuum.com/retail/shopretail.php?part_no=406AQD. It is very easy to use.

Best for Area Carpets as Well?

Jan Nashville: For my hardwoods, should I get a brush with or without wheels? The one that originally came with the AirVac had wheels but one wheel is now broken. We also need to use the same brush on wool braided kitchen area rugs.

Answer:
Use the one with wheels since you need to use it on an area rug as well. The wheels are key for making your this chore as smooth as possible.

Best tool for Hardwood?

I am currently using the NuTone CT140G floor/rug tool on my hardwood floors, but the front brush clogs with lint and dog hair almost immediately so that it acts more like a broom, and ends up just pushing the dirt around instead of vacing it up, and I spend all my time cleaning the bush. What is the best tool for hardwood floors that will not clog up? John

Answer:
For initial vacuuming we recommend this tool, the Deluxe #402D. Nearly the entire front section is opened up for debris to pass into. For the finishing touch we recommend the Manta #402MAN.

Black Marks?

I find this attachment leaves a dark line along my baseboards from the black plastic -- any suggestions?

Will this brush hurt my short pile carpet?

Why Shorter Bristles on One Side?

Why are the back bristles shorter than the rest? Because of this some suction power is lost and not dirt and debris is not picked up well. It takes me twice as long to vacuum a room. I hate it. I also wish you made a white brush. The black plastic makes black marks on baseboards.

Actually the front bristles are shorter. Is yours backwards? The shorter front bristles are necessary for air flow and debris pick up. And if they were not, then the brush would clamp down to the floor.
