Important: The new premium electric hose now comes in three different sizes (30-Foot, 36-Foot, 50-Foot), and features a new 1-3/8" Interior diameter that creates up to 27% more airflow. Virtually Indestructible. These hoses are designed to fit 99.9% of all central vacuum wall inlets today (standard 1.5" diameter inlets).

Electric central vacuum hoses were developed with a series of both low voltage and high voltage wires integrated throughout the hose. The low voltage is to conduct a signal from the hose to the central vacuum system turning the central vacuum on. The 110 voltage is supplied to the hose via a pigtail cord or direct connect application on the wall end of the hose.

This provides electricity to the electric carpet attachment otherwise known as a power nozzle or electric beater bar. At the handle of the hose is a three-way rocker switch allowing you complete control of the functions of both the central vacuum and the power nozzle right at your fingertips!

The center position will shut off the entire operation the first position allows the central vacuum system to turn on giving you straight suction. Only when the switch is placed into the second position will this allow the hose to provide suction as well as electrify the hose to use the electrical attachment, you have total control in the palm of your hand! With an orthopedic style grip and 360-degree swivel handle, this allows maximum performance, eliminating wrist strain and fatigue, stops kinking and increases hose life.
