VIDEO: How to Store a Central Vacuum Hose

Central Vacuum Hose Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: How do I store a central vacuum hose when it's not in use?

A: Storing a central vacuum hose is easy with a retractable hose system like Hide-A-Hose! Simply retract the hose into the wall-mounted inlet, keeping it neatly hidden and easily accessible for the next use.

Q: Will the hose get dirty from being stored in the pipe?

A: Socked hoses do pick up dirt from floors while vacuuming, however with the Hide-A-Hose system, the SmartSoc Hose actually stays cleaner than a standard central vacuum system hose. When the hose retracts back into the central vacuum tubing, the suction from the central vacuum power unit removes dirt and dust from the hose sock. A hose that is stored in a closet does not have this advantage.

Q: Can you wash the hoses?

A: Absolutely! Unlike standard central vacuum hoses, there is no wiring in the retractable hoses. Both the SmartSoc and Rapid Flex hoses are washable. Simply remove the hose from the inlet and wash in a bath tub using some dish soap or a similar cleaning solution (no need to remove the sock from the hose). Allow the hose to dry completely before retracting it back into the inlet.

Q: How long can the retractable hose be?

A: Unlike standard central vacuum hoses which typically only go up to 30 ft in length, the Hide-A-Hose retractable hoses come in lengths of 30, 40, 50, and even 60 ft, which means that one hose can cover up to 2,300 sq ft.
