Hi, congratulations on the home and central vacuum. Your unit has a permanent center-weighted cloth filter. The bottom of the unit detaches. Empty the bucket and then take a plastic bag and shake cloth filter out while in the unit. Use this guide to do a run through the system www.builtinvacuum.com/flowchrt.html
. We have general wands here http://builtinvacuum.com/accessories/extensionwands.html
but suggest a new air powered or electric powered complete hose and tool kit. They are all directly compatible with your system. Start here to discover what is best for your home and pocket book http://builtinvacuum.com/kits.html
