Basic Central Vac Hose Upgrade

While we here at Central Vacuum Online love the Basic Central Vacuum hose, we also love convenience. Consider upgrading to a Low Voltage Hose. What's that, you ask? The Low Voltage Hose is a hose with a comfortable handle that contains an on/off switch right at the handle. No more running back and forth to unplug the hose when you receive that important call you've been waiting on. We think it's definitely worth the extra pennies, but see for yourself. You won't be disappointed. Click here to view the Low Voltage Hoses that we offer.

Ask a Question

Fasco Compatible?
Question: Will this hose fit a Fasco central vacuum system that is 25 years old?
CVO's Answer:
Yes, this hose will fit all Fasco systems no matter the age. The Low Voltage hose will fit too and be a better one to use because it has an on/off switch for the suction at the hose handle. If you have any other questions please let us know.
Vantage Vac System
CVO's Answer:
The Basic Hose will work on Vantage Vac installations with the 1-1/2" diameter wall plate holes. Each model could have different wall plates. Please measure the hole on your wall plate to see if it is 1-1/2" diameter or just a hair smaller. All our hoses will fit that size wall valve opening and work with the system.
Question: Is this hose compatible with the AIR VAC AV425?
CVO's Answer:
Yes, our Basic Central Vacuum hose is compatible with your AirVac. We ask that you check your inlet valves to make sure it reads 1.5 inches in diameter for proper connection.
Industry Standard Compatable
Question: Will this hose fit a Budd vacuum that is 45 yrs old?
CVO's Answer:
If your inlet valve is made to industry standard specifications, this hose will be compatible. Industry standard specifications dictate that the inner diameter of the inlet valve measures at 1-1/2" and has two small metal contacts (they may appear to be metal dots or nubs) located just within the inlet valve itself. These contacts should make a connection with the metal ring around the wall end of your hose and start the flow of suction.
Budd Lid Activated Inlet - 1.25 Inch Diameter
Question: Do you think this hose work with a 15-yo Budd unit that is activated by opening the receptacle DOOR 90 degrees, not by 2 nubs in the receptacle? My broken hose has an approx 12quot long by 1-12quot dia straight metal stem that inserts into the receptacle that this hose doesn't show. The receptacle dia is 1.5quot and has a flat surface.
CVO's Answer:
Yes, our hoses fit Budd Central Vacuum wall inlets, both hose and door activated. But if it is door activated then you will need this adapter to put intot the wall end of your new hose Please see all your options here and let us know if you have any further questions.
Does It Have A Button Lock (Push Pin)?
Question: Does this hose have the push pin to retain the extension tube to the working end of the hose?
CVO's Answer:
The Basic Central Vacuum Hose does not have a button lock to connect to an extension tube. However, this basic hose will still hold an extension tube with a button lock if you are able to twist while inserting the tube onto the hose handle. If you would rather have button lock capabilities on your hose, please view our low voltage button locking hoses by clicking the following link: Low Voltage, Button Lock Hoses.
Basic Hose Features
Question: Would this hose more closely resemble the high voltage flexible vinyl hose that we currently have for our 18 yr old Zena vac, or the stiff blue plastic hose (spare hose) that we use to vac in the basement?
CVO's Answer:
Our basic hose does not contain low voltage or high voltage capabilities. Your system is activated upon inserting the wall end of the hose into the inlet valves (wall ports) throughout your home. They are lightweight, pliable, crushproof and are available in various lengths as shown here: Basic Hose Options
Extend Hose with Additional Hose and Coupler
Question: I need to extend my 1 14 inch inside diameter basic non electric hose. Can I use the 25' basic hose and with which coupler. thanks Roy
CVO's Answer:

Yes, you can buy another basic hose of any brand, length, or diameter and couple it using this Hose Coupler.

Extension Hose Available?
Question: I am looking for a hose extension, does it exists? Can I find a hose to connect to my existing hose, to make it longer, to reach farther? Thanks, Valentin
CVO's Answer:

We have a 12-foot Extension Hose available here that works with most all hoses. Please take the time to read the description to understand if the hose is compatible with yours. If you have any questions please ask us.

CVO's Answer:

Hello and thank you for contacting Central Vacuum Online my name is Ally and I am happy to assist you today.

The basic hose is not currently available in the button lock version. If you currently have a button lock wand, you will want to contact us to purchase the friction fit wand in order to go with your new hose. Click HERE for wand details.

Question: I have a Budd system that is door activated. the wall opening is about 1.25quotinches. I understand that I probably need a hose reducer. Which hose would you recommend?
CVO's Answer:

Hello and thank you for contacting Central Vacuum Online my name is Ally and I am happy to assist you today. Any length of the Basic Hose option will work best for you make sure you also purchase the P-HA125M adapter.  

If you are needing an electric hose to operate a rotating beater bar/ power head for carpeted areas, we will want to determine compatibility with your power head and wand set up. 

Question: will this fit a 1988 kenmore model 1164053380, serial d80128206, class r1-5?
CVO's Answer:

Hello and thank you for contacting Central Vacuum Online, my name is Ally and I am happy to assist you today. 

Please measure the inlet valve opening (ID) to determine compatibility. If the diameter is 1.5 -inch, the Basic Central Vacuum Hose will be a perfect fit. If it is 1.25-inch diameter (as some older Kenmore systems can be), you will need the 1.25-inch adapter. Let us know if we can be further assistance, 

Question: Will this hose fit a 1980's vintage Filco System with the suction starting when the door opens? The existing hose is a tapered plasticrubber 1.5quot diameter end that friction mounts into the door. It does not have a metal band. Filco SB-300L.
CVO's Answer:

Hello and thank you for contacting Central Vacuum Online my name is Ally and I am happy to assist you today.

Please reply with the diameter of the inlet valve opening as well as pictures of the valve (if you are able) in order to determine compatibility. The basic central vacuum hose is made for industry standard 1.5" Inner Diameter inlet valves. If the hose is 1.5" OD (outer diameter) then it is likely the basic hose will work for you and will operate the same as it currently does. 

Question: My question concerns the plug-in outlet from the wall. It is 1.5quot in diameter. What turns it on is a button on the fitting that the sleeve pushes in when it is inserted. Will this hose and fitting work? If not can I use my fitting with your new hose? I#039m interested in replacing the hose since my system was installed over 50 years ago and still works. Thanks
CVO's Answer:

Question: Will this fit a Zenex 275
CVO's Answer:
Question: Hi, I already have a low voltage hose and I need to extend it. Can the basic hose be used as an extension (I need 30ft)? 12-feet extension that you have is not enough. Thanks.
CVO's Answer:
Question: I have a 45 year old Beam central vacuum which needs a new hose. I think a basic hose will work for me but I would like to have a bleeder valve which this hose does not have. Which hoses, if any, include bleeder valves?
