Hello Mike, congratulations on the home and the central vac. With quality attachments you will really enjoy the benefits of a central vacuum (benefits: www.builtinvacuum.com/whybiv.html
). Vacuflo may or may not have used their proprietary inlets in your home. They look like this https://builtinvacuum.com/help/vacuflo/adaptor.html
. They start the suction when opened, but it sounds like you may need to test your system from the bottom up first using this https://builtinvacuum.com/flowchrt.html
. If you have those valves or not, we have what you need to be up and running. We highly recommend an electric hose and tool kit such as Stealth or BlackHawk https://builtinvacuum.com/electricpowered.html
. The kit fits into the proprietary inlets and any other inlet you may have. (For proprietary inlets you will need to file down one portion of the hose end to get a fit that is not so tight into the inlet.). If you don't have much carpet then consider one of our Deluxe Kits here https://builtinvacuum.com/airpowered.html
. It fits right into your system. If you need any help please call.
