If the selections below are confusing to you, scroll down where we explain how to determine the options you should select.
What do all these options mean?
When purchasing central vacuum attachments, you are not limited to purchasing sets made by the same manufacturer of your central vacuum unit. It’s really all about the inlet of the central vacuum system where the hose is connected and the hose that connects to that inlet. First, let’s look at the inlet types. Which type of inlets does your central vacuum system have?
There are two basic types of central vacuum inlets; Standard and Electric
What options do I have for a powerhead and which is the best type of powerhead for a standard central vacuum inlet?
You may choose between an electric powerhead with a pigtail cord or a turbine air driven powerhead. Clearly the electric powerhead with a pigtail cord provides more power to the powerhead and better, deeper cleaning for your carpets. If you have some area rugs and primarily smooth flooring, a turbine powerhead is fine, but we do not recommend a turbine powerhead if you have a significant amount of carpeting.
Will a standard type hose without pigtail work in an electric inlet?
Yes, the central vacuum unit will turn on with a standard hose connected, but you will not have any power in the hose to run an electric powerhead. You can however use the hose to run a turbine powered powerhead.
Do Garage Sets and Bare Floor Sets work with either type of inlet? Standard and Electric?
Yes, the Garage Sets and Bare Floor Sets we sell come with hoses that are for standard inlets but will work with both standard and electric inlets to turn on the central vacuum unit and provide suction for the attachments. None of the garage sets or bare floor sets come with a powerhead so the inlet type isn’t important. Garage Sets are specifically designed for garage use and the bare floor sets are for people who have only smooth flooring in their houses.
Now Choose from Direct Connect, Pigtail or Turbine.
After answering which type of inlet you have and which type of hose you want, you may either Find by Brand, where you will be prompted for which brand is yours and then which type of set you want or you may look at all the sets we offer for Direct Connect , Pigtail, or Turbine.
Purchasing Just a Hose?
