How to Install a Central Vacuum System
Learn how to install a central vacuum system with outlets on four floors and hidden PVC piping.
Homeowners will install a central vacuum system that is quieter, cleaner, and more convenient than conventional vacuum cleaners. The system includes a large power unit with muffler, a vacuum hose with power head, six vacuum outlets, and yards of PVC piping and fittings for a custom installation for this project. The homeowners work jointly with a commercial installer to identify optimum locations for primary vertical piping runs and secondary runs that branch across the attic or basement and then pass through walls to reach target sites for vacuum outlets.
