The Different Types of Central Vacuum Hoses We Offer

 

We sell several styles of hoses that fit almost any central vacuum system. Most of our hoses come in 30’ or 35’ lengths, and are either non-electric or 2 or 3 way switched. In this video, Kyle goes over some of the differences between the hoses, and you can choose the right one for you!

 

 

The first hose we’ll go over is the universal premium turbo-style hose! We also sell universal standard style hoses which you can see here.

 

 

This type of hose is not electric, so it can’t support any kind of electric power head. Instead, it uses a turbo-style head, which uses the suction from the vacuum to make the brush roll spin. This works great on hard floors and low-pile carpet.

 

 

The other type of hose we are going over is the electric hose. We have our own GV brand as well as a Prolux premium hose. Both of these are electric and will support and electric power head, which works better on carpet than a turbo-style power head. If you have mostly carpet, we recommend going with an electric power head if your system supports it.

 

 

Both of these hoses come in pigtail or direct connect styles, so they will work for the connection style you have. All of the hoses we sell work with the standard sized hose outlet (1.5 inch.)

 

Since these are electric hoses you can control both the vacuum motor and the power head by the hose handle switch.

Getting to Know the Prolux CV12000 Central Vacuum 

If you’ve recently purchased a Prolux CV12000 Central Vacuum, you’re probably wondering how it all goes together. In this video, we go over the basic assembly and use of this powerful central vacuum unit.

 

Important Safety Tips

  • Always make sure your machine is unplugged and the power button is turned off, before servicing your vacuum.
  • Always make sure your hands are dry and free from moisture before servicing your machine.
  • Be sure to wear gloves when servicing your machine to prevent any cuts or scrapes.
  • If you are uncomfortable working on your vacuum, please don’t hesitate to contact us at service@greatvacs.com and we can help you through the process or you can send it into us to fix it for you. 

 

When you get your new Prolux CV 12000 the first thing you’ll want to do is unlatch the dirt bin and remove the top motor portion.

 

Inside the dirt bin you’ll find the exhaust muffler kit, an end cap, and two adapter pieces.

 

You will use these parts to assemble and attach the muffler and system piping to your central vacuum unit.

 

The CV 12000 has two inlet ports found on both sides. This makes it easy to hook up on either side, depending on the location of your plumbing.

 

Some systems use two inlet ports, but most will use only one. The other port will need capped off with the provided end cap if your system only uses one.

 

You can also use your vacuum’s own suction port, which is found under the flap cover.

 

You can lift the flap and attach the hose directly to the suction port.
