14DX Replacement?

I have a Sequoia 700 central vac with 14DX powerbrush. Will the Stealth system work with the Sequoia system.

Answer:
Yes, the Stealth Kit is a wonderful upgrade. The Stealth is quiet, doesn't break belts, has a softer more flexible hose, and is worth every penny. We guarantee it!

4 Kids, Couple of Area Rugs

WE BUILT OUR HOME ABOUT 3 YRS AGO. THE HOSE MODEL AB27 AND WAND WITH RUG CLEANER MODEL CT14DX IS NO LONGER WORKING. WHAT IS MY BEST OPTION?? ALSO, MY HOUSE IS 3500 SQ FT ALL TILE, AND HARDWOOD. WE HAVE A COUPLE OF AREA RUGS AND 4 SMALL CHILDREN. WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST THAT WE SHOULD GET, THAT WILL FIT IN OUR CENTRAL VAC NOW WHICH IS HAYDEN SUPER VAC PREMIER UNIT, WITH PIGTAIL INLET.

Answer:
Our Hayden Kit is the exact replacement but you have some considerations. Because you only have area rugs, you could buy a Deluxe Kit (non-electric) and save $. It will clean the throw rugs, but not as good as the Hayden, especially with the traffic you have at home. If you do want to have the power and longevity of a electric nozzle, such as the Hayden, you should also consider the Stealth Kit. Stealth is heavier duty and will not break any belts. It fits directly into your system.

AirVac Systems, AV525A

I have an Air-Vac 525 central vac unit, model #AV525A, S/N L941143 120Vac, 13 Amps, 60HZ manufactured by M&S Systems, Inc. a Nortek Co. Can I upgrade to the Stealth system? My home is two levels with carpet upstairs and hardwood floors and tile/marble downstairs. The home is approximately 4400 sq ft. My central vac needs to be upgraded since it is approximately 14 years old. Thanks, Jane Lambert

Answer:
The Stealth is an incredible upgrade for the AV525A. You will need the corded version most likely, 30 or 35ft hose, and it will fit right into your wall inlets. You will only need to plug the electric pigtail cord in when using the Stealth on your carpet. The lightweight hose has wires hidden inside, you only move around a hose, no cords. The kit comes with a wide tool for the hard floors too. Our customers make us proud with their high reviews of the Stealth and we hope you will be able to chime in with them after you feel all the dirt flowing up the Stealth and down your new and improved hose!

Beam - Work with My System?

Hi, I have Beam model 191, it is about 20 years. Does the Stealth work with my system? Thanks Paul

Answer:
Yes, the Stealth will work great with your Beam system, a perfect match. In fact, it will work with all systems. Your Beam inlets have a 1.5" diameter inlet hole which is industry standard. Most likely your inlets don't say 110 volt so you will need a Stealth Kit with a corded hose (the wires are hidden in the hose and the wall end of the hose has an 8' cord you plug into a nearby electrical outlet). Now all you have to do is choose between the 30' or 35' hose and then enjoy the cleaner carpets and floors.

Answer:
Hello, sounds like the right time for a new attachment kit. The Stealth Kit is the best one available and fits right into the Beam system without any modifications. You can check them out here and be sure read the great customer reviews. https://builtinvacuum.com/help/beam/kits.html

Beam Compatible with Stealth Nozzle?

I have a 23+ year old Beam system w/separate cord on the hose that plugs into an ordinary outlet. The hose is fine but the carpet brush (electric) needs replacing. We have pets (bad shedders), Berber carpet & hardwoods. I don't need anything except the carpet attachment. What do you recommend?

Answer:
Hello, we highly recommend replacing your Beam power head and the hose, etc. with the Stealth Kit or other Electric Kit. It is a better quality vacuum and comes with a hose that provides you 27% more suction. Just the sound of the air rushing into the new hose will excite you! The RugMaster connection to the hose you have is not standard so replacing the hose and vacuum, in our opinion, is the best decision. New kits fit right into your wall ports and work with your system without a hitch. Thanks for asking.

Beam RV System Compatible?

I have the RV Beam's central vacuum systems would like to know if any of your electric power heads would fit it. Josie Womack

Answer:
Yes, the Stealth will work great with your Beam system, a perfect match. In fact, it will work with all systems. Your Beam inlets have a 1.5 diameter inlet hole which is industry standard. Unfortunately the shortest hose is 30' which may be overkill for the RV. If you have the room for storing it, though, it will be worth every dime! Be sure to buy the 'corded' Stealth Kit because your vacuum inlet probably doesn't say 110 volt.

Best for Berber?

Berber carpet vs. Stealth? We have BERBER carpet. I'd like to make sure that Stealth doesn't hurt our carpet. Any suggestions? Yoon from Chicago

Answer:
Actually Stealth would be the best choice because it has 10 adjustable levels so you can get the bristles to hover just over the carpet, or as close as you want. This will just about guarantee to keep your berber as new looking as long as possible.

Broan / Nutone Compatible?

I have a Broan CV315 and looking to replace the power brush. What would you recommend. I have to plug into the wall outlets. Thank you Joan Toledo

Answer:
Hello Joan, many Broan owners buy the Stealth head alone and then later buy the hose and extension wand (though it is easier to buy both for less money in a complete kit now). It is a wonderful upgrade and replacement vacuum.

Broan System - Best Attachment Kit for My Central Vac?

My home has a broan cv40d central vac system in place with 50/50 carpet hardwood floors. Which top end attachment hose kit would best suit my needs?

Answer:
As you might have suspected, the Stealth Attachment Kit is by far the best you will find on the market for Broan or any central vac. The brush is built the old fashioned way with durable materials, lots of stainless steel screws, a "never" breaking belt, etc. The hose too is the best around, being resilient and lightweight with great airflow. We offer a no questions asked 30-day complete refund if not thrilled with the product. If your Broan is older, the inlets may be tight with the modern hose. If so, simply remove some plastic off the hose end. Buy the hose with an 8-foot cord to plug into a nearby electrical outlet on your wall. The hose has the wires inside it so you only have to deal with the hose when vacuuming - no cords. Determine if you want a 30ft or 35ft hose with the Stealth kit. Both the sizes are here for the Stealth Kit for older Broan Central Vacuum.

Buy Components Separately?

We have a 4-year old AirVac AV-2500 System w/an AirVac air turbine powerhead (non-electric 1.5" wall outlets). I'd like to say it sucks but it doesn't. Our carpets were starting to look ratty so I borrowed an Oreck upright from a neighbor & now the carpets look great! It looks like the Stealth may be the answer to making our central vac useful again? A few questions: - Am I correct we can convert to the electric Stealth? - Can I just purchase the 12" Stealth, 30' electric powerhouse, and 8' electric cord or do I need to buy the entire kit? Steve Spring Hill, FL

Answer:
Great choice. We stand by the Stealth Kit and what it will do for your vacuum system. It will fit right into your 1.5 inch diameter inlets and it sounds like you need the 8ft cord version. That's it, there is nothing you need to change on your system, just buy the 30ft or 35ft hose 8ft cord Stealth Kit. Buying the components separately will not save you money. If you buy separately remember you will need the telescopic wand as well to mate the hose with the Stealth (#406ST). Let us know if you have further questions.

Carpets - Low Pile or Hand Made

does the stealth work on hand made low pile rugs? I have several antique Persian carpets in my home and the rotating brush on my current attachment is damaging the carpets. Thank you

Answer:
Hi, the Stealth is a very good match because it has so many height adjustments. You can tune in to get the brush to go over the top of the carpet without digging in too much. First, though, check with the manufacturer or tradesperson for their cleaning recommendation. Not all carpets are made to be electrically brushed at high RPMs.

Centra-Flo Central Vacuum Compatible?

We bought a home with Centra-Flo Central Vacuum already installed. I am interested in your Stealth Power Brush. Is the connection hose compatable to connect to the wall?

Answer:
Hi, yes, your Centra-Flo Central Vacuum is completely compatible with the Stealth and other electric kits we offer. Stealth is the best though. You will most likely need the 8ft cord version which is the pigtail electric cord that is plugged into a nearby electrical outlet. Wires are hidden in the lightweight hose so you don't have to carry a cord around. If you have any questions please let us know. Here are the Stealth Kits http://www.builtinvacuum.com/stealth-kit/index.html

CT12DXL Replace with Stealth and Wand?

I have a WalVac power head model CT12DXL. It is 14 years old and has seen a better day. I would like to replace it with a Stealth 15" power head. Would it be compatible with my hose? I have an electric hose with the 2 prongs that plug right into the inlet. I don't think I need all the accessories either, would the price be lower without them? Thank you. Jean. Milwaukee,WI

Answer:
The Stealth would be an excellent replacement and you already have an electrified hose. The only compatibility issue left is the connection to the Stealth Wand (Stealth has to use it's own wand for proper Stealth head connection). The wand fits on a hose handle that has 2 inches between the metal nipple on the stub tube and the two female holes in the plastic on the handle. If you have two inches then buy the Stealth and Wand here https://builtinvacuum.com/retail/shopretail.php?part_no=490T. If you don't then let us know the distance and we can give you other options.

CT14DX Replacement?

Hi, we have a 10 year old M&S vac system that needs a new power head cleaner. Old model is M&S CT14DX. It has an electric motor and headlight, adjusts to floor height for carpet, tile, hardwood, etc, and plugs into the wall for added suction. Would the Stealth have the same options and work with our current 30 ft. hose and wand attachments? Thank you, D. Powers

Answer:
Hi, you can replace your hose and everything with the Stealth Kit as a simple swap. The Stealth hose will plug into your system and work seamlessly. If you are only looking for the nozzle then this is the exact replacement for the CT14DX here: https://builtinvacuum.com/retail/shopretail.php?part_no=480,480I

Will it work with my Electrolux system? I installed it in 1990. also, can i convert from pigtail to quick connect?

Answer:
Hello, yes the complete Stealth Kit with hose is compatible with your Electrolux Central Vacuum and the wall ports. It comes in direct connect or pigtail. Rarely can the wall ports be converted to direct connect. Remove the wall cover and take a photo of the backing plate. We will let you know if it is possible or not. Ask a question and attach a photo using the lower section of this page https://builtinvacuum.com/install101.html.

Electrolux Nozzle Replacement?

I am looking for a replacement power nozzle to an Electrolux central vac system N Series, ECV 1590A. The nozzle is model number N109D. Also, is it posible the existing nozzle could be repaired? Thanks

Answer:
Hi, it may be possible to repair. If you end up needing a new kit, the Stealth Kit is the way to go. It plugs right into your system and can use any attachments sold here since the connections on it are standard verses Electrolux which are proprietary.

Eureka Compatible?

i have a eureka the boss plus central vac with direct connect units, will the stealth system with hose work , thanks len in oneida

Answer:
Hello Len, yes the Stealth is compatible and a terrific companion to the Eureka line of central vacuums. Be sure to buy the direct connect version, not the corded version since you have the electrified vacuum inlets with the two holes above the main hole. Enjoy!
