Hide a Hose Retractable Kit

central vac hide a hoseA retractable Hide a Hose retractable kit basically features a self-storing and automatically vanishing hose which stores in the tubing system of the central vacuum system. This kind of system has numerous advantages including reduced maintenance since there is no mechanical equipment to break down. 

When you open the tube and position your hand on the end of the tube, the strong suction of your central device retrieves the tube automatically. With a Hide-A-Hose vacuum, you will substitute up to 3 typical inlets with a hide-A-Hose system, limiting the number of outlets per floor. 

The Hide-A-Hose system can work with up to 50 feet hose units and as well as one valve which can even accommodate up to 2,300 square feet.

Solving the Problem of Hose Storage

Hide-A-Hose coupled with a central vacuum system incorporates a very high vacuum strength and comfort to produce the ideal combination without the need for cumbersome hoses to be packed or carried around your place of work or home.

With this improvement, you only pull the amount of shaft you need from the inlet valve and connect the hose handle equipped with attachment, so that you can quickly begin to vacuum. 

When the vacuuming is over, you only need to unplug the cleaning head from the tube and the suction from the central vacuum unit forces the tube back into the tube structure. 

One connection can cover up to 2,300 foot squared of vacuuming space and can store up to 50 feet of tubing

Since central vacuum systems are installed outside the living quarters, allergens, dust, and pet mites are not recirculated and thus householders benefit from healthier cleaner air. 

Central vacuum systems are four to five times as powerful as handheld vacuum cleaners. Hide-A-Hose has been used to vacuum the home more efficiently, modernly and easily, and is very common with new facilities in Europe and America. 

When purchasing a Hide-A-Hose vacuum at Think Vacuums, the kit will include a hose, cleaning apparatus, and all the accessories and fittings necessary to mount the hide a hose system. The package comes with a twelve-meter-long hose too. Also available are 10 meters and 15 meter extra hoses.
