Nutone Compatibility

This would be wonderful for my entryway and laudry room. Will this hose work with my NuTone Model VX550 system or do I need the adaptor and do I need the kit or will the attachments that came with my system work? Judging from some of the other Q/A, I think I will be okay, but I just want to be sure. Thank you. Mary, Champaign, IL

Answer:
The hose will work with all industry standard inlets. If you have the Nutone inlets that measure 3" by 3.5" square inlets, then it will not work as they are a different size. No adapters are available due to the type of material the body of the hose is constructed with.

Nutone Compatible?

I have a Nutone system in the house we just moved into and this product looks great. Will it fit in my wall sockets? I have the approx. 3"x5" rectangular ones with a flip cover. Thanks. Asheesh -Chicago-

Answer:
Hi Asheesh, congratulations on the new home and the central vac - which is the only way to clean! Yes, your Nutone system has the standard size inlet so the Quick Clean Kit will fit right in and work perfectly for those quick clean-ups. There are some Nutone inlets that are a little wider then they are tall which need an adapter for the Stretch Hose. That adapter is here and is pushed onto the end of the hose https://builtinvacuum.com/retail/shopretail.php?part_no=300NMCA.

Hi I want the stretch hose and the flexible crevice tool---I bought my replacement unit from you within the last year, but I have nutone outlets. PLease advise!! Cindy

Answer:
Cindy, if you have square Nutone inlets then you need this adapter that slides over the wall end of the Stretch Hose https://builtinvacuum.com/retail/shopretail.php?part_no=300NMCA. If you have taller rectangle inlets then you don't need any adapters.

will this kit work with my nutone central vaccum cu353w without any additional attachment. amy columbus ohio

Answer:
Hi Amy, if your inlets are tall rectangles then this fits right in but if they are a bit wider then tall you will need this adaptor https://builtinvacuum.com/retail/shopretail.php?part_no=300NMCA. Just push the entire adaptor on to the end of the Stretch Hose.

On - Off Swith Version?

Glenn Luse, Williamsport, PA Do you have anything like this with an on/off switch?

Answer:
Hi, sorry, no one has invented the stretch hose with on/off switch yet. The one we offer is worth the convenience, even without the switch, though.

Original Hose has on/off Switch

Hi, I have a flo-master where you have to turn the hose on and off on the wand - will this quick clean kit work for my system? Thanks, Nadine, Boston

Answer:
Hi, yes this will work. When you plug it into the inlet it will start automatically. There is a metal ring all the way around the hose end that makes contact with the two small metal balls just inside the inlet hole at the top or bottom. The kit is really useful.

Pet Grooming Brush for Stretch Hose?

Do you have or know of a small pet (dog) attachment that can be used with the stretch hose?

Answer:
Hi, the PetVac tool comes with a hose but the tool can be used with your stretch hose. We have other tools linked from this page as well that fit the vacuum hose https://builtinvacuum.com/petvac/index.html. If you are using a central vacuum you will have to "bleed" off some of the suction by opening another valve a bit or something like that.

Ports with Electricity

Add'l question to my inquiry about the Nutone Model CV 450W central vacuum with 30' hose that contains electric wires. I want to be sure that the Quick Clean Kit will operate if I connect it directly into my wall ports. I'm not looking to connect it to my 30' hose. Does your Quick Clean Kit come with electric wires in the hose? I'm unsure as to what the difference between hoses with electric wires and those without. Nancy in Litchfield

Answer:
Hello Nancy, the Stretch Hose fits into all electric style vacuum ports and its metal band engages the two small metal nipples with the main vacuum hole, thus turning on the suction. There is not any connection made with the two holes for electricity because it is not needed to run the suction for the Quick Clean Kit.

Safe for Existing Home Installation Inlets?

Is this hose compatible with an AirVac system? Also, does the hose place a significant amount of stress on the inlets as it stretches. My system was installed in the house post construction and the inlets are not nailed to the studs. I just want to make sure it will not rip the inlets out of the sheetrock! Thanks, Billy - NY

Answer:
Yes, the Stretch Hose fits all AirVac Systems. Inlets installed after the home was built are more than sturdy enough to handle this hose. Several of the employees here have the same set up and there are no issues whatsoever. AirVac inlets are the same universal inlets and backing plates we use.

Suction Not Coming On

the suction does not come on when I plug the hose into the system. am i doing something wrong- no instructions cane with the stretch hose. thank you. margaret in maine

Answer:
Assuming your system is not an AirForce system (see label on main unit), be sure you are inserting the hose far enough into the valve so that the metal ring is making contact with the metal nubs inside. If you have Vacuflo, Vacumaid, or Nutone you may have one of their odd sized valves and we have adapters for them. Please call us.

Use as Extension?

I was wondering if this can be used as an extension for a vacu-maid unit? I'd like to add it to the end of my 30 footer for use with my non-power head. Steve Park City

Answer:
Hello Steve, your metal hose end will fit into the wall end of the Stretch Hose so you can use it as an extension hose for your central vacuum. However, it would be best used infrequently. If you want a more permanent long-term fix then buy a longer hose which is available here. But if you need it just to get one area of your home then go for it.

Can I use the wand from this QC hose on my regular long hose? My current plastic one is broken and I need to replace it, so I'm thinking while I'm at it I could get this handy-sounding QC set and use the new wand on both.
