Replacing a central vacuum hose can sometimes be a daunting task. There IS a standard central vacuum inlet, but there are also some major brands, like Nutone, that manufacture a slightly different inlet. One solution is to be sure and always purchase genuine replacement hoses manufactured to match your inlet, not your power unit.
I sure don't want to complicate this, but in addition to the inlet type, if you have an electric powerhead you also need to make sure the other end of the hose matches your powerhead wands.
At Central Vacuum Stores we sell genuine replacement hoses for all the different brand inlets. We have also developed a wonderful tutorial/wizard that will walk you through the process and help you identify your inlets and hose end type so you can purchase the correct hose.
Don't forget, you can always call one of our experts at 1-800-221-8227 and let them help you find the correct hose.
