Central vacuum hoses have come a long way. They are now lighter, more durable, and provide better suction. Inside they are wider and smoother so the vacuum works better and debris flows through faster. There are several categories of central vacuum hoses to choose from. .Basic hoses come with or without an on/off switch in the handle. A Stretch Hose for quick clean ups works as a secondary hose for all systems. All hoses come with a 2-year warranty.
