If you have questions about your central vac setup anywhere in or around Grand Falls, New Brunswick, I’m the man with the answers. Here are a few of the questions I’m asked regularly, but send me an email if you have a question that isn’t answered here.
May I install the Retraflex® system at my place?
The Retraflex® installation can be easily performed, even in an existing home, as long as certain conditions are met.
The main difference with a conventional vacuum system is that the piping system must be long enough to contain the whole hose. It is therefore necessary to add extra PVC pipes to an existing piping network, which is relatively simple, according to our experience, if you can access the ceiling in your basement. If it is completely closed, it is also possible to add an independent Retraflex® system through the attic. Most of the time, the installation is performed during renovations, while some walls or ceilings are open, giving access to the existing piping network. A Cyclo Vac Expert will be able to assess your situation and recommend the best solution. Contact yours now!
Which tools do I need to install my central vacuum system?
The connections to the piping system will require some basic tools: a mitre box and small saw or a pipe cutter. To simplify matters, installation kits, including necessary fittings, pipes, glue, low voltage wiring, and a detailed instructions booklet, are available, as well as a complete installation DVD that can serve as a step-by-step guide.
Do I have to install an exterior exhaust from my central vacuum system?
If your unit has a bypass motor and is installed in a room of less than 8’ x 10’, exterior ventilation will be absolutely necessary. However, it is best, when possible, to install an exterior exhaust for your central vacuum system. This exhaust considerably decreases the central vacuum sound level and allows, if there are any tears or punctures in your bag or filters, to evacuate bacteria and mold outside. It also allows the heat, produced by the power unit’s motor(s), to be redirected outside and not in the room where your central vacuum is.
Can I safely vacuum liquids with my Cyclo Vac central vacuum?
No. Your vacuum cleaning system is designed to collect everyday dry matter (dust). It is approved by authorized testing agencies for dry use only. Do not use on wet surfaces. Should you accidentally vacuum liquids, immediately unplug the unit from the electric outlet, then empty and wipe the dust receptacle with a dry cloth. After that, operate the system from the vacuum inlet through which you had previously vacuumed the liquid, in order to eliminate all moisture in the piping system.
Besides liquids, are there some materials that my central cleaning system cannot vacuum?
Yes. We strongly recommend against vacuuming abrasive materials such as cement, plaster and gyproc dust. This fine dust could work its way into the motor, causing considerable damage. Should you do so inadvertently, immediately clean the filters and, as a precautionary measure, contact your authorized service center to determine the extent of the damage to the unit. Remember that in order for your warranty to remain valid, maintenance of the motor and repairs to the unit itself must be carried out by an authorized service center, using original Cyclo Vac or Trovac parts.
What should I do if I notice a decrease of my central vacuum’s suction strength?
There are a few possible causes that could explain a decrease of your vacuum’s suction strength. To find out what to do for each possible cause, please consult the Cyclo Vac owner’s manual, pages 28 and 29. If none of the suggestions restore the suction strength, contact your local authorized service center.
How do I restart my vacuum once the bag has been changed or the filters cleaned?
For the HX, GX and DL series, equipped with the DataSync technology, simply press and hold the reset button for one second. For regular models, the unit should function normally as soon as it is reconnected to the power outlet.
