Does the Rug and Floor Central Vac combo tool work with the AirVac525A central vacuum system. My old tool is okay on the floors but does not pick up dog hair and such on my rugs Thanks Carmen

Hi Carmen, this brush will not effectively groom your carpet. It has no beater brush, nothing spins in it. It will fit your system though.

Replacement Bristles?

What about a replacement Bristle assembly? It's not reasonable to replace the entire Rug and Floor Central Vacuum Combo Tool Part#409 when the issue is simply that the bristles are worn down. The Combo Tool is easily dis-assembled and replacement of the Bristle assembly would be about a 3 minute procedure. IE: We don't replace automobiles simply because the ash trays are full.

Tom, we agree, the parts for this would be good to have but the overseas manufacturer doesn't provide them to any vacuum reseller.
