Since my central vac is almost 20 yrs. old, I was concerned that the new hose would not work with my outlets. To my surprise it connects perfectly and the power head and attachments also work nicely. My only complaint is that the suction hose is thinner and tends to get kinks in like a garden hose. The product arrived quickly and changing it to a direct connect was quite easy.
I'm still getting use to using the different attachments. I wish there was an instruction manual to figure out all the different attachments and how everything works.
Very happy with the new powerhead, hose and tools. So much of an improvement over the 23-year-old Eureka head we used to have, and much more compatible with our new carpet. I docked one star for one particular aspect - the handle will not lay completely flat, which makes vacuuming the stairs really awkward.
