- Electric Dual Voltage Hoses: These hoses will have a three-way switch that will turn on the system's suction and can activate the electric power head too. There are two different ways to supply the electricity to the power nozzle and these hoses are referred to as either a pigtail hose or a direct connect hose. Pigtail Hoses have a cord that is 8' long and comes off of the wall end of the hose and is plugged into a nearby electrical outlet. Direct Connect Hoses will have two pins that stick out from the wall end of the hose as well as the split metal band on the hose necessary for the low voltage connection. Many hoses can be converted from pigtail to a direct connect depending on your setup and we offer that option on most of them when purchasing.
- Low Voltage Hoses: These hoses have a simple on/off, two-position switch that will turn on the power unit. Typically, these are used in cases where people have either bare floors or limited carpeting that is cleaned with a turbo carpet brush. Most of these hoses are universal fit but with a few exceptions: Vacuflo Hoses have a unique button lock and two different fittings for the wall end of the hose.
- Standard Hoses: These hoses do not have an on/off switch and have no electrical wiring in them. They will simply activate the system when they're plugged in and deactivate when taken out of the inlet valve. These hoses are perfect for garages, basements, and other surfaces that don't have carpet and require a power head.
