No Garage Hook-Up?

Not sure how this is supposed to work. Plug the hose into the house inlet, keeping the garage-to-house door open while cleaning, then hang/store the "garage" hose in the garage to make sure ... what? That bugs or something don't get into your "house" hose"? Why need 2? Julie, Naperville, IL

Answer:
Typically, there is an inlet on the vacuum itself and the unit itself is usually located in the garage. For homes where the unit is in the basement, there is usually an inlet installed in the garage. Having a basic garage hose can be beneficial because you can drag it around a dirty floor or outside to clean an RV or eves and then not have it on your clean floors at home. Hope that helps.

Other Sized Hoses?

Can you get the "Central Vacuum Garage Kit" with a 35 foot hose?

Answer:
You can buy the 50ft version and cut the hose to any size you want. The hose ends are reversed threaded and come off with a twist and a yank. With this solution you can have the perfectly sized hose!

Upgrade to Longer, Different Hose?

I would like to know if I could upgrade the 50 ft hose in the Basic Garage Kit, to the one with the shutoff button? If so, what is the price and how do I order it?

Answer:
Hi, yes you can easily upgrade to a better hose. Buy the Garage Kit without hose and then pick another hose (Basic or Low Voltage, and the size). Here are the options you are looking for http://builtinvacuum.com/retail/shopretail.php?part_no=416GK,384,385.
