Low Voltage is Not Electric - Which hose do you need?

A Low Voltage Hose can turn the suction on and off but cannot power an electrified power brush (a vacuum nozzle with an electrical cord or pins on it). The switch on the Low Voltage Hose handle only rocks on and off. By contrast, an Electric Hose has a switch with three positions, the middle being the off position. Both Low Voltage and Electric hoses are available in a variety of colors, handle shapes and styles.

Low Voltage Hose End - Wall Inlet Compatibility
Low Voltage Vacuum Hose Wall End

The Low Voltage Central Vacuum Hose is compatible with all wall inlets that are 1-7/16 to 1-1/2 inches in diameter. If it is narrower or wider we have adapters. Give us a call. How does the switch work? 99% of all wall inlets have two metal nubs inside the hole. A hose without a switch starts the vacuum by simply inserting the metal hose end into the wall inlet making contact with both metal nubs. The Low Voltage hose keeps those low voltage nubs separate, allowing the switch to start and stop the suction. (You cannot get shocked from the metal nubs inside the inlet valve hole, there is only a small amount of voltage and no amps.)

"Switch" to Low Voltage Hose Convenience

The largest number of satisfied central vacuum owners use a hose with an on/off switch for their cleaning chores. Nearly all central vacuum systems can upgrade to a better hose without having to change anything in their system. If your hose doesn’t have a switch, simply buy a Low Voltage Hose and realize all the convenience. If the doorbell sounds or the phone rings, simply turn the suction off at the handle. There is no need to run back to the wall to pull the hose to stop the vacuum. Some owners ask if the vacuum lasts as long if it is constantly being switched on and off. Answer is, the vacuum is not affected by it, it can actually be turned on and off thousands and thousands of times.

Longer and Shorter Lengths Available

You can maximize your cleaning with a variety of hose lengths. A forty or fifty foot hose will go incredibly far, even to driveways, and porches, or past them. Your central vacuum can pick up a lot of things so why not use it for the job? Don’t worry about clogging the pipes, remember that the tightest turn in the system is right at the wall so if something is too long it will not go through. It will get stuck right there where it is easy to retrieve. Besides the long hoses, there is also a 25 foot one available. This size is handy to use in high-traffic areas that need more than the once a week sweep. A shorter hose is easier to handle and store, and it will actually have a bit more suction for deeper, faster cleaning.

Help Determining Your Central Vacuum Hose

Hose Notes:

We recommend upgrading the basic hose to an electric hose with pig tail if your house has a lot of carpeted flooring, as this will allow for compatibility with electric power heads to ultimately provide better carpet cleaning.


We recommend upgrading to a low voltage hose if your house has a lot of hardwood floors, this will allow you to turn the vacuum on and off with the flip of a switch from the handle. This will save power, and make a better cleaning experience.

Electric Hoses:

Electric Hose with Direct Connect
When you hear the words "direct connect" it refers to a 2-pin plug that connects directly into the inlet for power. This power is then sent to the handle for electric power brush compatibility.

Electric hose with Pig Tail (corded)
Pig tail is essentially just another term for 'corded'. You plug the cord into a nearby outlet, and then your hose will have the same benefits as a 'direct connect' hose. This hose is compatible with 99% of central vacuums and is the absolute best option when upgrading your hose.

A closer look at the Electric Hose Handle
Notice the two-hole female end for electric application. If your current hose handle doesn't have any pin-holes like the one pictured, you will have a low voltage or basic hose.

See below for more details on low voltage and basic hoses.

Low Voltage Hoses:

Low Voltage hose with Button Lock
Button Lock is a mechanism for locking in your vacuum wand, or attachment, into the hose handle so it does not accidentally separate when vacuuming. The handle of low voltage hoses will have a useful on and off switch for your convenience.

Low Voltage hose with Friction Fit
Friction fit is your typical vacuum connection, the hose handle will just press into the attachment or wand with friction keeping it in place. There is a switch on the hose handle that allows you to turn the vacuum on or off with the press of a button.

Low Voltage Wall End
A look at the low voltage wall end. Notice the switch in the pictures above - If your hose handle has a switch, but the wall end doesn't have a pig tail or direct connect, it's a good chance that you have a low voltage hose.

Basic Hose:

This is a picture of the basic hose handle that we carry. This hose does not include a bleeder valve, nor does it have a button locking mechanism.

Basic Hose End

Basic Hose End
The end pictured has a metal ring that entirely wraps around the hose end. This results in the vacuum being in a 'always on' state when plugged into the wall.

If you would like the option of being able to turn the vacuum on/off by the hose handle, then we recommend a low voltage hose.

Understanding Central Vacuum Hoses

Look here to start shopping for central vacuum hoses.

Are you at all confused about the different types of central vacuum hoses? Maybe you're asking what is standard, turbo, pigtail and direct connect? We hope the following explanation takes the mystery out of which type of hose to buy. First, let's look at the two types of central vacuum inlets so you can determine which type of inlets you have, and then we will answer some common central vacuum hose questions.

Standard Central Vacuum Inlets:

standard central vacuum inlets

Standard Inlets are non-electrical inlets. These inlets require low voltage for turning the vacuum system on or off. These inlets have NO electrical capability. If electrical attachments are used (i.e. powerhead), then you need to use a central vacuum hose called a Pigtail Hose. This hose has a power cord attached to it, and in addition to connecting the hose to the inlet, there will be a 4 to 8 foot power cord (usually referred to as a Pigtail) that plugs into an electrical outlet for electricity. NOTE: Standard inlets will not work with direct connect hoses which are for electric outlets. Standard inlets use either a pigtail, standard, or turbo hose. Another option for having a powerhead with a standard hose is using a Turbine Powerhead. A Turbine powerhead is powered by the air of your vacuum and so no electricity is required.

Electric Central Vacuum Inlets

electric central vacuum inlets

Electric Inlets can be used with any standard, turbo, pigtail or direct connect hoses but are designed for direct connect hoses. These inlets require low voltage wiring AND electrical wiring. The low voltage wiring is used to turn the vacuum system on or off. The electrical wiring provides electricity to the powerhead that is used to clean carpet. The direct connect central vacuum hose has electrical wire running through the hose, and the end that plugs into the inlet has prongs that fit into the inlet for electricity to the powerhead.

Will a standard type hose without pigtail work in an electric inlet?

Yes, the central vacuum unit will turn on with a standard hose connected, but you will not have any power in the hose to run an electric powerhead. You can however use the hose to run a turbine powered powerhead. 

Do Garage Sets and Bare Floor Sets work with either type of inlet? Standard and Electric?

Yes, the Garage Sets and Bare Floor Sets we sell come with hoses that are for standard inlets but will work with both standard and electric inlets to turn on the central vacuum unit and provide suction for the attachments. None of the garage sets or bare floor sets come with a powerhead so the inlet type isn’t important. Garage Sets are specifically designed for garage use and the bare floor sets are for people who have only smooth flooring in their houses.
