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 https://builtinvacuum.com/retail/shopretail.php?part_no=406AQD. It is very easy to use.

Beam Serenity Compatible?

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 Solution

My current floor brush attachment also leaves black marks along my baseboard. it is painted with a high gloss white enamel. i am looking for an attachment that will not do this, but i see this has been an issue with this part. does it come in white?

Answer:
Sorry, only comes in black without wheels. With wheels it comes in light grey, that is our part number 402W. Have you look at the MopHead as well?

Black Marks?

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

Answer:
Not good. We find that most baseboards are painted with a gloss or semi-gloss paint. These paints are very difficult to mark. What do you think yours is painted with? Eggshell? Satin? Flat?

Damage Carpet?

Will this brush hurt my short pile carpet? I have an Australian Shepard dog and my Beam power head will not completely pick up the dog hair on my carpet, I usually have to begin with the floor brush and finish with the power head. Between that, and my many rough ceramic tile floors, my brush is also worn to a nub. I don't want to damage my carpet, however...

Answer:
Hello, this brush will not damage carpet. It is soft and has no wheels. For your situation we suggest a new power kit such as the Stealth.
