CV6855-PT Standard Connect Hose
This model of the CV6855 series is the corded hose often called a Pigtail or Standard Connect hose style, sub model -PT. Our standard connect Premium attachment group includes a new lightweight crush-proof hose with a regular connection cuff that includes a 7 foot cord attachment (called the 'pig-tail') built into the hose end and which plugs into a standard electrical outlet somewhere nearby the vacuum inlet to provide electricity to the premium power brush.
This type of connection fits most wall valves on the market today where power for electric attachments is not supplied directly by the CV wall plate. Our universal corded hose is designed to work with all standard wall plates, even some of those that were installed years ago and those that may not have originally included a powered attachment group. If you are unsure which hose and attachment kit you need for your current system, or which type you should install for a new system then please read our article linked below titled CENTRAL VACUUM HOSES AND INLETS EXPLAINED
Standard connection is generally the preferred inlet valve type for retrofitting installations (new central vacuum install, pre-existing home). This type of installation does not require that you also run 120V wiring to each valve, only a low-voltage signal wire that is used in all CVS installations. To use the Central Vacuum System with standard connection valve and corded hose you need only plug in your hose to the wall.
When you need to supply electricity to the powered brush for cleaning carpets just plug in the cord that is connected to the hose wall cuff to an electrical outlet somewhere nearby. The pigtail cord on the hose is 7 feet long, and can easily stretch across a hallway if needed. The CV6855 series is also available in model CV6855-DC with a direct connection wall end. If you are not sure which style you need, just give us a call or send an email.
The 30ft. & 360° CVS Hose
The lightweight current carrying hose is 30 feet long with a soft molded ElectraFlex© hose body. The CVS hose body is highly flexible to make sharp turns without cutting off the suction. The handgrip is also the latest design in ergonomic "Gas Pump" grips. Keeping the grab area small means less fatigue on your fingers and wrist than with gripping the whole diameter of the hose. The CV6855 Premium's hose body is an oversized 1 3/8" ID with a smooth bore interior for better airflow properties, an estimated 20% better than the standard 1.25" hoses. The larger interior diameter hose gives air moving through the hose less resistance for increased velocity and through flow. The new 1 3/8" hose works exactly the same as older 1.25" hoses.
The hose-to-grip connection has a full 360° swivel union that keeps you tangle free while moving about room to room, and the fingertip switch is 3 position giving you complete control over the remote suction unit and the powered brush. The switch has a center off position, move the switch in one direction to turn on the power unit for straight suction cleaning or to clean hard floors.
Moving the switch to the third position will turn on the suction unit and also energize the powered brush for carpet cleaning. An industry standard, this hose is manufactured by Plastiflex for the Aspria kits and will fit all new and most existing CVS systems with standard connection wall plates.
New 35' hose upgrade option available at order.
The same gas-pump style swivel grip 1 3/8" ID hose is now available in 35ft length. The 35' hose is the longest electric hose produced and the longest allowed by UL for residential cleaning systems. We have been told of a website that claims to offer a "36 foot" central vacuum hose. This is a misleading claim by a website that uses a standard 35 foot hose and includes the ends of the hose in the measure which adds the extra foot of total reach. All electric hoses (dual volt, 4 wire) are either 30 or 35 feet in length, not including the ends.
If you would like to upgrade your new CV6855 to 35ft just use the pull down menu above the add-to-cart button at the top of this webpage. Please keep in mind that the 35ft hose upgrade can only be purchased at the same time you purchase your new CV6855 kit.
Telescopic Steel Wand with Cord Management
Connecting the EBK340-QDC Power Brush to the hose handle was given no less thought than the power brush itself. The new double action Myraton Telescopic Wand with QDC (Quick Disconnect) provides effortless attachment and adjustment of the power brush for carpet cleaning. Through a easy to use thumb operated button the chromed steel wand can be adjusted for any sized user, extending from 24.5" - 38.75".
The new Myraton QDC tele-wand has incredibly smooth slide action. The new latching mechanism gives a firm lock that does not slip and is easy to set. The new adjustable wand also has a redesigned interior that is smooth to reduce debris snags and increase airflow. Sealed from the dirt and dust passing through the wand itself, the telescopic action is completely maintenance free.
The ultimate in power brush convenience, the Myraton telescopic wand features a quick disconnect system that enables you to easily remove the power brush from the system. In this QDC system the cord remains with the wand where connectors on each end allow it to be unplugged from the power brush at the bottom or from the hose grip at the top. This allows you to switch cleaning tools from any connector without having to unplug cords or remove connectors.
Using the QDC System is simple. The EBK340-QDC has a receiver engineered into its swivel connector. The Myraton Wand has the built on cord with its mating connector held in place. When you insert the wand into the power brush the system makes the connection of the plug and locks them together. To release the wand you step on the foot tab of the power brush and power plug is disconnected from its socket and the wand is released from the EBK340-QDC. Without bending or stooping you can easily change the cleaning tool from power brush to floor brush - then to crevice nozzle and back to power brush in just seconds - without latches, buttons or plugs.
The lower "stationary" part of the wand system includes the more reliable rivet down steel lock pin that works with the QDC to keep the wand engaged into the EBK340-QDC power brush. The QDC connector is mounted to the wand and two soft nylon cord keepers come preinstalled with the coiled power cord on the wand. The upper section of the power nozzle cord is a stretch type coil, similar to a telephone handset cord, providing tension while in the cleaning position.
The top of the telescopic wand includes an easy release tab (called a thumb saver) to quickly disengage the hose from the wand and a small crease at the top of the extension tube that centers and lowers the hose button lock for easy attachment. The back of the upper wand holds the permanently riveted Plastiflex Cord Management connector. This cord connection collar holds the coiled power cord in a ready-mounted position for quick connection to the hose grip.
Simply attach the hose to the wand and the power nozzle's cord is automatically plugged in for you. Pushing the release tab on the front of the wand lets you quickly detach the wand from the hose, no fiddling with a cord plug. A feature highly prized by central vacuumer's, the quick attach cord management system makes changing from one tool to another at the hose grip fast and easy.
